I've stayed at the hotel and eaten in the restaurant more times than I can count over the last couple of years for business. Firstly, the hotel could teach many supposedly 5* hotels a thing or two about customer service and value for money. The rooms are well appointed, well decorated and have useful touches like a charging station for... More

We booked an overnight stay at the Studley Hotel after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and what an excellent choice it was. Our room was very clean, with a superb, modern on-suite bathroom. The food at the Orchid Restaurant is excellent, and the staff there are very informative and attentive. The hotel itself is ideally situated in the centre... More

Ok but not worth the price difference to other rooms we've stayed in at the hotel. Lots of chipped paint and naff furniture. Toilet light comes on automatically day AND NIGHT ! No control of main room light from bed. Staff great, though someone from housekeeping left keys in our room door most of day - not too secure. Stay... More

As the title says, overall our night at the studley was amazing. The location of the studley is great, just a short, gentle walk into town. We stay away frequently and often find reception staff standoffish. I found the reception staff at the Studley really friendly, parricularly Clemence who was really helpful and able to answer our questions. I'd booked... More
