Having found this hotel on booking.com I decided to treat my girlfriend to a night away. Upon arrival everything seemed fine although the receptionist didn't seem like she cared if we were there or not. We were told we were staying in room 25. On entering the room a sudden smell of damp hit us followed by the cobweb that... More

If I was a very low-level local government employee, attending a very unimportant conference in Soviet-controlled Eastern Europe in the early 1980's, this is the standard of hotel I would expect to stay in. It gets one star for being cheap and close to the motorway, but for God's sake find a Travelodge instead.

Lydiard Park is dated, yes. The rooms and decor are from the 1960's and on the small side, but they were clean, comfortable and had tea making, TV and toiletries. The bar food was delicious - we both had ham, eggs and chips - and it was good value at about £11 each as there was lots of it, freshly... More

Wow, the park is lovely, the walled garden is very pretty and the house is stunning but don't be fooled as the conference centre is shocking. Go visit the park, take the dog, take the children, enjoy a barbeque or cake in the tea rooms. Please avoid the conference centre. The reception staff had poor customer service and their grooming...

Ok, enough is enough with this place and it's time peoples feedback was addressed sensibly and proactively by who ever has the unfortunate task of owning or managing this place. I stayed here in 2011, the room smelt of damp, the bed was uncomfortable, the security of the bedroom doors shocking. The feedback I got then..."we are undergoing a refurbishment... More

The post code sent us to the wrong side of Lydiard park which okay was fine, we ended up finding the correct place after 15/20 mins. We were very impressed on first glance, very quiet gorgeous place covered by trees and nice plants. We were welcomed by a very nice gentleman who was also very helpful. First glance at our... More

Very friendly staff, rooms and swimming pool/sauna were very clean and tidy. Breakfast was also extremely well done - nice food, good selection and constantly replenished. However, the centre is slightly let down by management; rooms are shabby and in desperate need of modernisation or a higher standard of finish. For example where repairs have been made, no effort has... More

Although outer building a let down, room perfectly clean, in room wifi, TV and tea making facilities in room. Didn't eat at hotel so no review. Good value for money. If you want a place to sleep go for it. Lovely walk around Lydia Park in evening nearest petrol station 9 mins by car.
