I booked 3 rooms for family 2 downstairs for less mobile couples and we stayed upstairs. I was told that the room we had had been refurbished and yes it was fine and the bed comfy. Unfortunately one of the rooms downstairs was in obvious need of refurbing (especially the bed). Howerver the staff could not do enough for us.... More

Unfortunately we will not be visiting this hotel again. First impressions on the outside ok. But looked very run down. Our room was tiny & not the cleanest. Window frames dirty. The lounge area had a cream sofa & it was absolutely filthy. The staff are friendly but this hotel is in need of a good clean & really needs... More

The general experience was marred by the room size for two people .The facilities in the en suite provision were cramped,badly laid out .To enter or leave the shower cubicle it was necessary to step over the toilet pan which for less flexible guests was poor

Overall pretty good but beds were short, old and lumpy so not a great nights sleep. Sheets were clean but had holes in. Everything was clean but worn. Breakfast was good and staff were lovely. Wi Fi was awful.

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.

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
