3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Midweek business trip and arrived well into the evening. Meal in restaurant was good and staff were attentive and friendly. Room was fine if a bit dated. Bar was fine. I can't say I had any complaints about my stay and the lady on reception was happy to sell me a tube of toothpaste which was a relief. A decent... More

Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Room is big and bed is comfy. Decor is quite dated. Curtains dont keep out the daylight so we were up at the crack of dawn. Cocktail bar has a very small selection of very basic cocktails and bar staff were fairly unhelpful.

Thought it was a lovely building and it had been converted quite well from a glove factory to a hotel. We found staff on duty at the desk (did not get names) to be very nice and friendly, no complaints there at all. Room was comfortable and clean with tea and coffee making facilities. The room was a bit noisy... More

Nice looking building. Handy for town centre & good parking. Room was okay and big. Noisy as not double glazed. Very tired looking throughout for me. Bar was really bad & completely devoid of atmosphere. Breakfast very average. Used the function room for business meeting and again just adequate. Had to wait an age for projector. Lunch time buffet was... More

Colin and Kirsty were fantastic absolutely wasted here as their customer service skills were above and beyond whereas the "Duty Manager" Gary didn't even know how to manage a situation and was rude and completely unhelpful with a poor attitude.

I attended Katie2502's party as she booked to do her disco. The bar staff were excellent and accommodated our needs very well. The food was brought out and it was announced over our PA system several times. As most of the guests were outside in the courtyard, they couldn't hear so I personally went outside and announced it to them.... More

From the outside the Fownes sets high expectations; however, it doesn't live up to these inside. Hall carpets are grubby and on entering my room there was a musty smell. That said the room was large with plenty of storage and there was even a built in hairdryer in the bathroom. Breakfast was adequate and I did not try the... More

I tried The Fownes yet again in the hope things had improved since my last stay and review. Sadly no one loves this hotel anymore and it shows. The bar is stark and devoid of atmosphere and the service cut to the bone. I ordered a Gin & Tonic with ice & lemon as usual and got served ice from... More

Great location staff helpful and friendly. Looks great from the outside but once inside an in particular the bedrooms it needs updating. The carpets would benefit from being replaced, the furniture is mismatched and shabby, the bathrooms are old fashioned. A lack of plug sockets. Having said that it was really clean. But they are in the process of upgrading... More
