Like other reviewers I arrived and followed signs to the carpark, parked and walked up to the hotel to find none of the doors open on that side of the hotel. Went back to the car via the unlit path and drove to front of hotel and parked in the road. On getting into the hotel everything got better -... More

My partner and I booked this through KGB Deals. We arrived at 5pm. Followed signs to car park, located behind the gardens. When following the path from car park to hotel path we found that both doors were locked. It turns out that the reception is at the front of the hotel but not signposted. Annoying having to trudge up... More

Although the staff tried there best and were friendly this is certainly not the place to stay in winter, it was freezing in our room! On two of our three day stay the breakfast was burnt and some of it virtually inedible. Other guests were muttering about it being "like Fawlty towers"! I hope this was not their usual standard...

We stayed at the hotel on a special deal where we stayed for two nights for the price of two which is fantastic value for money - to be honest you would be stupid to stay somewhere else. The hotel is a bit tired in places and could do with refurbishment, but the room that we had was comfortable, clean... More

I am a Business Excellence Consultant for a very large organisation; I spend 3 or 4 nights per week in hotels around the country and my expectations of these hotels are high. From the moment I walked into the reception to the time I checked out the next morning my experience of Helme Park Hall was tremendous. I was greeted... More

Looks very picturesque from the pictures. Accommodation very basic but clean. Restaurant food exceptionally poor. Kept aware all night due to the flood lights being on at the front of the hotel got very little sleep. Staff couldn't care less. No sign of a manager the whole time I stayed.

Having been to this Hotel before for a meal we decided to book as a family of 12 (including children) for our Christmas Lunch. From walking through the door to leaving the two waitresses were an absolute credit to the hotel, catering for our every need - ultimately making our day relaxed by their friendly attributes and festivity! The meal... More

We used to go here 2 or 3 times a month for Sunday lunch as a large family and it was absolutely brilliant. Organisation was spot on, got made to feel at home and, more importantly, the food was superb. Best Sunday lunches we had ever had. I really don't know what's happened lately but the last time we went,... More
