Fab Christmas Party Night! Couldn't fault the food, disco, atmosphere or service. Special mention for Vicki Smith who does a fantastic job as Events Co ordinator and bar staff Darrell, Shaun and Lauren who were fab all night. Would recommend!

I stayed here again on business in an executive room. The room was spacious and the decor ok. The bathroom was a little dated and could do with some improvement work. The food was good as always. I chose room service for the first time and it was fine. The breakfast was wholesome and offered a food choice.

We stayed for 3 nights at this so called amazing hotel as our brother got married there and over all thought amazing. How wrong was we! The 3rd and final night I myself had knocked over a cup of hot choc and my partner due to the layout of the room smacked his face on the patruding wall resulting in... More

I have stayed many a time in 4 stars and rate our visit with the Belstead Manor 100% perfect. We stayed for 1 night at this lovely quirky beautifully traditional Hotel. Our group consisted of 12 ladies for a Hen spa break. The staff at this hotel were very obliging and I cannot praise them enough. We arrived early and... More

This used to be a Swallow Hotel and is still using some Swallow labelled items despite no current connection with Swallow. It changed hands a few months ago and is now owned by MG Muthu Group. The hotel is looking very tired and needs a serious update and makeover. Our room was very tired looking although the housekeeping was good... More

Originally stayed at this Hotel in May and it's price, food, location, facilities and staff made it a simple choice to book for a 2nd and 3rd time and on both these occasions, was not disappointed. In fact the rooms I stayed in were all next to each other with a nice view of the pool area so know the... More

We paid £97 b & b. The pool ect were lovely as was the food. But the room was a let down. We have stayed in far better for half the price. We were in an attic type small room that had suffered from a leak in the roof. This wasnt cleaned let alone decorated to cover it. The room... More

This hotel offers everything you expect of a 3 star hotel close to major transport links. My curry was microwaved within an inch of its life, WIFI non-existent and the lock on my door was decidedly dodgy and with a lock that wouldn't shut properly. When I complained about the latter, the reception did send up someone fairly promptly who... More

I've been staying at this hotel occasionally for nearly 20 years. It used to be one of my favourite business stops; it is now tired, tatty and now as clean as it should be. The restaurant is still reasonable but the staff are fairly grumpy and I just don't feel that welcome any more. Shan't be staying again. Sad.
