Stayed at Dukes folly Hotel for one night in July 2015. Hotel was in a great location and was easy to find. Staff very friendly and rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice and had lots of variety. Would definitely stay again. Thankyou.

We stayed here for a night whilst attending a christening in the area, we stayed in a medieval style room with a four poster bed and a 'castle' bathroom. The room was large and clean. walking distance to the shops and town centre. There was a large lounge area with a big flatscreen tv and newspapers/magazines provided - we had... More

I liked this hotel, has a nice patio at the front which is great for catching the sun with a few drinks. Breakfast was excellent and the Russian lady that served it was super nice and friendly, she couldn't do enough for you. The room had personality and the bed was comfy. The only things I would have liked were... More

Great room even though it was booked on the day of stay. Friendly reception staff, a clean room with all the amenities and importantly - a comfy bed. Can't comment on the breakfast as we didn't have time to take advantage of it but it smelled delicious. Only negatives were the very small ensuite which was a little crammed and... More

What's not to love about a room done out as a bedchamber in a mediaeval castle? Great fun. Nice little touches, such as lovely mock-stained glass lampshades and furniture in keeping with the theme. Staff very pleasant - it's always nice to see young people who understand how to provide friendly service. Loved the decked area, which was nicely lit... More

on arrival we were told original room was smelly. We were given a twin room which had so many issues: extremely noisy bathroom fan; torn bedspread, dirty shower head, dirty shower tray, broken plastic cover on over sink light. The window looked out on to fire escape; frame was black and rotten. We pointed all these things out to reception,... More

Enjoyed a good night’s sleep in the four poster castle room, which was very clean and well furnished, plenty of hot water and other facilities. Well-cooked and plentiful breakfast. The staff were very helpful, nothing was too much.

I really want to write a positive review for this hotel, as the owner and manager were so nice, I read the mixed reviews so booked a premium room only to be rung 10 mins before our arrival to say room had been given to someone else. We were offered a cheaper king size room which was partly renovated, it... More

Thank you for the review and your honesty. We are deeply sorry for the room confusion, this was down to a very rare error in the connection between our system and booking.com. We are as of this week upgrading our booking channel manager, and hope that we won't suffer these embarrassing technical errors again, on the behalf of our guests.... More
