We attended a wedding held at this hotel, so booked for one night for the convenience it afforded. The facilities it offered in this respect we thought were good, including spacious function rooms, extensive grounds and plenty of parking space. Sadly our room had an awful odour of drains, and we had to request a room change. Our replacement room... More

Easy to find and at face value looks a little tired and in need of some freshening up from the outside. Excellent and very friendly staff instantly felt welcomed and looked very nice from the reception area through to the Gardens, bar area and restaurant. Looks like an old home that has been converted with additional hotel rooms at a... More

I booked this hotel with Avios air miles and am surprised this is on their list! We arrived to be shown a room on the first floor accessed by a metal staircase which was hardly fit for use. The room was dark, fortunately for us they had not read the booking form correctly and this was a double room when... More

Having stayed at a number of Macdonald Hotels before, my wife and I had an expectation of what our stay would be like, but our experience at the Bobsleigh across a range of criteria was at polar opposites and I have to say not at all in keeping with the Macdonald Hotel brand, We had booked the executive room for...

We had booked this hotel for an overnight stay ( for a nearby wedding), we arrived at 2.30 and the carpets already looked in need of a good clean, as did the paintwork. There was a build up of grime on all doors that we passed thru on our way to our room. Hotel is badly in need of refurb.... More

A two night stay here (because of a funeral) turned out to be far more restful and pleasant than we at first expected. The room was most definitely 'tired' - clean but needing repairs and redecoration. The bathroom window had been broken and repaired incredibly badly, and on the first night the cold water for bath and shower did not... More

We stayed one night for a wedding. The hotel was rather average. The room was clean, although the back of the bathroom door was grubby as were the shower tiles. The beds firm but comfortable and despite a wedding downstairs not too noisy. It is in need of a coat of paint everywhere and the corridor carpets were stained. The... More

Stayed here recently on business and the rooms have been done up and they are now offering free Wi-Fi. I didn't use to get a mobile phone signal in the rooms and this also seems to have been fixed. So well done for listening to your customers and love the improvements. As usual the food in the restaurant was superb.... More
