I think you need to cross your fingers here and hope you get it right. Stayed here two years ago and felt okay to return. A different room this time. Unfortunately there is a flood light across the yard which was on all night. Being one who likes total darkness at night it was not welcome shining round the edges... More

Neither the price tag nor the website accurately reflect truly disappointing standard at this hotel. There is nothing to be said of the room other than tatty and outdated. However, it is in the dining experience that there is so much to pick fault with. Service is truly glacial - if you must dine there then at least sit in... More

Never a good start when the meal arrives on the table before the drinks, but as the food was indescribably bad, we should have just had the drinks and left. Pretty much everything we ordered was straight out of the microwave except the prawn cocktail that sat on a bed of shrivelled ancient lettuce amid a bright pink sauce, accompanied... More

Just come back today from this hotel for a friends wedding. Rooms The rooms are very out dated, they could really do with a refurbishment. Windows wouldn't open and there was a lot of dust. The bath room was unclean and the road outside woke me! Food and drink Food in the evening was really good and staff were very... More

We stayed at the Cross hands Hotel for 2 nights in August 2014 and had booked a superior room, having been told it would be larger than a standard room and that it would also have a larger double bed. It did have a queen size double bed but the room was just too small for the bed. They had... More

We stayed one night here whilst visiting the Balloon Fiesta in Bristol. This was the nearest hotel we could find to Bristol believe it or not but we got a good deal via Booking.com and thought it would be nice to get out of the city for a night. We called the hotel earlier in the day saying that we... More

This lovely old inn offers so much but fails to deliver. A quaint building on a busy crossroads but in a handy position for touring the area. If we had paid the true value of a night at this venue, say £60, we would have accepted some of the flaws but we decided to upgrade in advance to a deluxe... More

We asked for a quite room which it was until the delivery arrived early in the morning!! The banging of barrels & the mens singing woke us up!! The room was nice perfect for 1 night. We had dinner which we could not fault, also the breakfast. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

I stayed in the Cross Hands hotel for two nights whilst in the area on business and found it a very pleasant place to stay. Set in pretty countryside the hotel is accessible from the M4 or the A46. The room I had was next to the main road and was a little noisy but the thick curtains helped keep... More

We stayed for 3 nights while visiting friends nearby in one of the 'Feature Rooms'. Nicely decorated with quality bedding. The breakfast, was excellent and was served by a lovely girl who was very pleasant and friendly. In fact ALL the staff- reception, cleaners, waiting and bar staff were a credit to the hotel! If I was being picky I... More
