Myself and my boyfriend visited here on the 7th march which was a Saturday night for the one night. From the start it was a sham to the fact that check in took about 45 minutes to check in because there was a big queue of people waiting. We then found out once we checked in that we had to... More

Place is ok but there is no pride in the hotel and it is deteriorating and looks rundown in patched as a result. Breakfast was good as buffet but the fact you have to pay for Internet in March of 2015 is a joke and with it being £25 for the week or £8 for one day, when you can... More

The staff at the Hotel couldn't do enough to help, right from walking in we got a warm welcome from reception, all staff around the hotel were polite and helpful. We ordered food which was served quickly and was reasonably priced and very nice. The hotel had a lot of contractors in and I didnt feel comfortable sitting in the... More

As above really. It was ok but we've styaed in far nicer for the price we paid. First things first - we booked to stay as we were exhibiting at Crufts and needed a dog friendly hotel. We booked via a link on the Crufts website. I received confirmation via that website and all was dandy. I rang the Cobden... More

I stayed at the Cobden hotel his week-end ( 6-7 April 2015). I had read the reviews and was a little bit apprehensive. Yes, the hotel does need refurbishing, but what stood out for me was the hard working staff. I must mention a lady named Michelle, who assisted me with a situated which could have been very embarrassing. If... More

We booked the Cobden as a crash pad for a night out, so we weren't overly fussed about the very negative reviews we saw on here. When we arrived we were seen to quickly by the staff on reception. We were made to pay a £50 deposit for each room. The gent on reception wasn't particularly welcoming, he seemed relatively... More

I was there for one night. Very good price. Room was OK and large. Bed is correct. Bathroom nice, small shower. Desk and furniture needs to be changed. I understood that they are refurbishing the hotel. Breakfast was buffet. Good quality, big choice.

We have used the spa at the Cobden on numerous occasions in the past and found ourselves wanting to stay here but the reviews had a vast influence on my plans in doing so. I was often put off by them. We decided to give it a go and try out a couple of nights stay to see for ourselves..... More

Hotel is poor compared to the likes of premier inn however ... the good points....we were greeted by two lovely ladies on reception who were friendly and welcoming..(same cant be said about the fish who needed a good clean out). The bar is great, you get 2 half price cocktails, again bar staff friendly. I was expecting the hotel to... More
