i got married 07/08/2014 and had my reception at the Villa Rose. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough. From the day we booked our wedding it has been nothing but a pleasure to work with Rhonda/Nicole and the rest of the team. Nothing was a problem and they were always just a phone call or an email away... More

Just back from celebrating my birthday with an overnight stay in the one bedroom suite at the Villa Rose Hotel. I would like to say a massive thank-you to all the staff at the Villa Rose Hotel for making my birthday one to remember. Myself and my partner were actually shocked at how beautiful the archway suite was. This room... More

Very understated hotel from the outside as it is on a main street and just looks ordinary and that is probably the only bad thing I can say about this hotel. The staff (all staff ) are so helpful and can not do enough for you. The food is just excellent and could not be faulted and is priced well.... More

I spent a day here at a wedding and the food was absolutely fantastic. The service was excellent and the décor very appropriate. There was just a little annoying thing and that was that some of the staff, not involved directly with the wedding, were a little off-hand and not all that helpful.

My wife and I attended a wedding in the Villa Rose Hotel yesterday, I have experienced this hotel before and always found it excellent, however when you think somewhere couldn't be better they go and up their game. The wedding was perfect in all respect from the friendly and welcoming staff in the Forge Bar to the near perfection of... More

Pro's Beautiful hotel, Fantastic rooms Very friendly and enthusiastic staff, Good food: My only slightly negative (but constructive) point was a lorry delivery / collection of beer kegs at 8am in hotel car park below our bedroom(08 Aug). A bit too noisy that disturbed our nice morning sleep-in (perhaps move it to 10am onwards). Mentioned to staff on checkout. Other... More
