I spent around 5 years, 3 nights per week at the Bobsleigh, it was my 3rd home and the staff made it feel like that which was very important. Shame it closed a suddenly as it did for the staff & those who had parties / receptions booked. Hopefully the new build will get underway and re-open as quickly as... More

Another stay for convenience to our attending meeting in the locality. Excellent staff welcome and service. Pleasantly quiet. Good luck to all in future. It's now time for a long awaited rebuild Hotel closed 2ist November 2014 - we were the last guests, a strange feeling!.

With only a couple of days left before this hotel closes and all the excellent staff move on, I would like to say thank you for the service I have received over the last two or so years. Yes the building was in a downward spiral, TV reception poor and a general lack of repair but the staff and management... More

Hotel looking tired with electrics and heating in need of TLC. However, despite hotel closing down in a couple of weeks time staff remained pleasant, caring and professional. Diner menu limited but the best breakfast we've had for a long while. Another overnight stay a week later equally good. Sorry its closing!

The room was spacious and comfortable nights sleep. A good breakfast with attentive and pleasant staff. I was able to walk to Tring through the park at night with a torch, which made a nice evening out.

The staff were all very pleasant and polite. The hotel itself is in need of work. The furniture in our room was looking dated and tired. The hotel could do with an update in general. The location is very good for access to London as well as the Chilterns.

I stayed one night big black hair in the bathroom. The toilet roll holder falling off he wall. The towel rail in the bathroom fell off when towels placed on it. The shower freezing cold and no hot water. And the shower door didn't close properly.

It is probably not worth writing a review as the Hotel is closing shortly, so I would use this opportunity to thank the staff for their assistance and courtesy during our recent stay. This was our first overnight in a hotel since illness has left me slightly disabled and in a wheelchair. The travel operator which we used did not... More
