Well we chose to stay here for a wedding as it was the closest hotel to the venue. When we checked in we could see that the reception area was a mess. All their paperwork needed a good tidy and a tatty old reception chair with ripped fabric was behind the counter. It doesn't cost much to sort this out.... More

We were attending a wedding at Aynhoe Park and staying at the Cartwright.what a lovely hotel with the kindest staff possible. I am disabled and they went above and beyond to make us feel at home. And they seemed to treat everyone the same. The rooms were lovely and facilities great. Can't wait to stay again

We stayed here for one night en route to North Wales and were VERY impressed with everything at the Cartwright Hotel! A warm and friendly welcome, good food, a super room with all the amenities needed - couldn't ask for more! Will be back!

Myself and my wife stayed here in February. We had a executive room in the courtyard. We stay out quite often and asked to look at some of the other rooms. On seeing a standard room in the courtyard I really can't see any difference apart from the price. In the executive room you would have thought that they would... More

NigelOddy, Owner at Cartwright Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback and I'm pleased you enjoyed our hospitality. The Cartwright is an old coaching inn and room sizes do differ. All executive rooms have king size beds which is the key benefit v's standard rooms - we think the upgrade premium is pretty reasonable. Please return and we'll try to find you a bigger room. More

On a busy working day I stopped off here to have a coffee with a friend. The bar was practically empty and we ordered what we required and sat down. There was no sense of any urgency from the young man behind the bar who seemed far more interested in putting the cups away than serving us. Being short of... More

Many apologies - we had a much smaller coffee machine due the servicing of our regular machine. Only able to make one coffee at a time. We were serving two parties of three when you ordered. Despite this, it appears communications were not up to scratch and you were not looked after in the manner we pride ourselves on. Please... More

Went there today for the first time ever for a Sunday meal. Very nice place and setting and helpful staff and a good service. Really lovely food just unable to give the 5 stars as the beef could have done with a few more minutes in the oven as a little on the very rare side. Would not have gone... More

Did not stay at the hotel but used the restaurant and bar for a meeting on the hottest day so far this year. Bar and restraint area comfortably cool! Talking of cool, a nice mix of contemporary and traditional. Smart and clean. The Food was also very good with a fixed price 2& 3 course option. Talking to the chef... More

A friend and I had a voucher for afternoon tea so we decided to visit on a Tuesday. From the initial booking phone call to the end of our time there we were treated very well indeed - especially as we were the only people in the restaurant!! The offer included a glass of secco, a generous plate of sandwiches,... More

There is no chance of finding fault with this place. The rooms were lovely, the staff friendly and helpful, the ambiance great, and the food excellent. If I'm anywhere near there again and looking for accommodation I would choose The Cartwright Hotel without hesitation. Thank you everyone for making an overnight on a business trip so pleasurable. If only other... More
