Im sorry that I even had to give one star for this place, never will I ever book here again! Both staff and management need more customer service training, the only person that made us feel welcome was the lovely girl who was on breakfast duty.

Stayed in the Woodlands for a family wedding recently, and have to say that the servers in the reception were so helpful. The meal was lovely - 4 courses with wine flowing throughout the meal and after. The barmen in the reception hall couldn't do enough for the party...they were very friendly. The rooms were large enough but a bit... More

Stayed in Woodlands Hotel for a family wedding last week. Have to agree with previous reviews and add some of my own. The first impression was walking into the bar area the day before we actually checked-in ... the lunch buffet looked and tasted great but the actual tables, floors and bar counters need an extensive clean. Two people working... More

This hotel is nice. Bit outdated. You don't get the impression that there is a manager, seems more like staff are running around trying to keep things going, they seemed very busy and short staffed. The hotel is grand, smoking area needs to cleaned more frequently, glasses on table, no ashtrays so butts everywhere and litter, this is at front... More

Stayed in the Woodlands as a wedding guest. It was clean and the room was a good size. The staff were pleasant. The meal on the night of the wedding was average. Breakfast the following morning wasn't great though - breads all a little on the hard side and cooked food tasted overdone. The pool and facilities were clean and... More

Had a week at the Woodland Hotel during a business trip to the area. The staff in all areas of the hotel are great. The breakfast and bar meals are good but the evening menu is very limited. The rooms are large but are poor, stayed in a normal room and had a further two days in an "executive" room.... More

This is a nice hotel, the rooms are very spacious with lovely bar food and a nice bar and leisure centre. The only con is the life in the hotel is very very slow which is quiet annoying and there was no air conditioning in our room so it was very hot
