Stayed for three nights and found the Smiths Court friendly, clean and comfortable. The only slight niggle was that you have ask them to turn the WiFi on. Only had breakfast on one day due to my early starts, but it was decent enough. Great value and I would be happy to stay there again.

The Smiths Court bent over backwards to make our stay as comfortable and trouble free as possible. They have converted a "suite" in the basement for wheelchair users, including a wet room. There are low level work surfaces and a cooker and fridge so it is possible to self cater. All the staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was too... More

Thank you for your review of the hotel. The room, the Woodford Suite, is newly refurbished, but has never been an office. We use blinds in a number of our rooms, as well as a range of different lights to try and give each room a different character, and we often make use of a number of quirky crannies (due... More
