Stayed here for 1 night on 29/08/2014 with my wife and baby. I advised it was for our anniversary beforehand and they left a bottle of champagne on ice in our room for arrival. So nice of them....

We had a one night stay at this hotel. Problem with a loud, overactive extractor fan in our room that kept us awake most of the night. We mentioned this to Sam (young lady on duty) the following morning, and were immediately compensated by means of an upgraded room voucher if we decide to stay there again. If this was... More

Its a tail of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly! The Good - Friendly, professional staff, generally good location to be based, pleasant enough atmosphere, good bar & restaurant prices, easy to use free WiFi, our room had a good size TV (32" I think) and a nice big bathroom. The Bad - Uncomfortable bed and not enough car... More

We booked here because we were going to Flashback Festival and needed a place to stay (last time we tried the Clumber Park Hotel and, if you read some of those reviews, you'll see why we didn't return) so being right next to where the late festival shuttle bus stops, this seemed ideal. We were a little early for check-in... More

We stayed for 5 nights. The staff were friendly and very helpful. There are some very olde worlde bits to this hotel, i.e. uneven and creaky floors, quirky corridors and, outside, cobbled street type areas (I love this sort of thing), but the noise of music (from 7 a.m(!)) and chatter from the bar below was quite intrusive. Unfortunately, although... More

We arrived late on a Friday night, to be greeted by a rather distracted receptionist. When checking in we were not informed of times for breakfast or where the restaurant was. Also the lift was broken which meant hauling our bags up two flights of stairs. Our room was lovely. We had upgraded so there was a bottle of proseco.... More
