My business colleague stayed here 3 nights whilst delivering a course within the local area. The rooms were booked by 'laterooms.com'. I know you get what you pay for but.... the hotel needs a total refurb or condemned. As he stayed there his thoughts were .....did not complain as when I arrived there was no one to complain to, at... More

Stayed here before going to UK Bike Skills for a day Mountain Bike Training. Only 3 miles from the venue. Very glad I did. The staff were very welcoming. You can either have dinner or breakfast in the deal. I had the latter. Really great food. Set me up for the whole day. The room was ok. Overlooked the fields... More

Looking for something different I decided to visit the Woodhall Arms Papillon restaurant for supper. It was like stepping back 40 years. More reminisce of seaside package holiday hotel in the late 1970's. Many of the other elderly diners seemed to be quite at home. Food wise the daily set dinner would cost you under £14.00. For me I tried... More

Stayed here visiting family over a weekend. Rooms are what you'd expect. Maybe a little tired. But you get what you pay for and can't complain at the price. Went out for dinner on Friday night and came back at 9:55 expecting to be able to get a drink in the bar and the whole place was shut up -... More

We have been to Papillon a few times for dinner. The staff are outstanding, so welcoming and friendly. The menu is varied and the food is very good value for money. It has always been served promptly and we have never had any issues. Last year, we stayed on Valentines day. The rooms are very basic and tired but were... More

I have never been here and had a bad meal. As always it was excellent Service was very quick and efficient. You cannot fault either the food or service, however the place is really in need of redecoration, it's not dirty just tired. I have been informed that the owner wishes to retire and wants to sell up. I do... More

Second stay. Again room ok, clean, comfortable, but in need of an update. Food again very good. Served hot, on hot plates, and well cooked. Very tasty. Had a starter and a main, but struggled to eat it all as both generous servings. If you need a basic room, comfortable bed, and good food then this provides them all.

Stayed one night on my own. Room was basic no frills but fine for crashing over a few nights - what I expected. Good value compared to other local options. Staff we're outstanding - funny, welcoming and really looked after me. One member of staff, Neil, even drove me to Hertferd East Train Station as there were no buses on... More

Worst experience of our lives..no food even though was advertised on website on a Sunday..only a sandwich !! Cup stained window ledges, dirty showers. We left within 20 minutes. When contacted refused a refund. Then ignored emails. We are taking further with Trading Standards

Having booked & paid beforehand with a confirmed booking I arrived to find that the member of staff who greeted me said that they had not received the booking properly & that it would cost me an extra £10. I finally found the booking on my PC & showed her but she said that the expedia (?) booking didn't match... More
