Stayed here for our 2nd anniversary, booked by my partner as a surprise. The staff couldn't do enough for us. Debbie was amazing and upgraded us to a suite when she knew what the occasion was. There was also champagne and flowers in the room which my partner had arranged but Debbie had sorted. When we asked to book a... More

Not disabled nor gay friendly! Stated in booking needed disabled access but we were put in a room I couldn't get my chair around or into the room without collapsing it and using my sticks. Staffs attitude at myself and partner requesting a double bed was rude and they continued to be rude and giggling at us and unhelpful to... More

It looks like a motel from a murder movie. The only good thing was how polite and apologetic the staff are. I really couldn't fault the people who worked there, Me and my Boyfriend had travelled 6 hours to arrive at a 'dump'. I had looked online and saw the mixed reviews but I think make your own judgements. This... More

Stayed at this hotel on Saturday night, the day staff as we checked in, were very friendly. The staff the next morning however were miserable, rude and sarcastic. The hotel rooms need a lick of paint, new windows and change the kettles. (Mould inside the kettle). You can hear everything and everyone going past your room and I found it... More

We had the misfortune to be booked in here last year (May) by our builders, as they weren't quite ready for our return. Fortunately I had told them to make it for one night only. The room was a bit on the small side. The e/s bathroom was awful. It was very old-fashioned, & tired but tired. The decor in... More

I attended a 21st birthday party in the Hosta Suite of this hotel. The food was superb and the staff were lovely. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a venue to host a private dinner party.

Just to say what a lovely meal my family and I had. The service was great thanks to a young man named Luke who helped to make it an evening to be remembered. The rest of the staff also were very helpful. Many thanks. Roy Ellison

We had a christening in the area and came from the south coast. This hotel offered what seemed like a lovely place to spend our first married valentines. Lots of points that lead to a terrible night 1-ladies at desk were so rude, the ladies decided that we hadn't booked as she didn't recognise our name only after some words... More

Can I just say firstly this review is for the restaurant at the Rivenhall and not the hotel. I had a table booked for 6.30, their first sitting, for their special Valentines evening. Upon arrival, we were early, arrived around 6.15, I announced the booking name and we were told that the restaurant was not open yet, which was expected,... More
