I just returned from a 4-night stay and The Lensfield far exceeded my expectations. It was charming, quaint, and spanking clean. As I was traveling alone to visit my daughter, I booked their "budget" single room. I expected the room to be small but it was perfect, cozy and warm, and included everything one could need from TV, radio, ipod dock, hair dryer, tea and coffee service, safe, plenty of space to unpack and store, and more. It was also light and airy. The bathroom was surprising large, with a walk-in shower and and looked newly renovated.
The breakfast was terrific too. I lingered every morning over my own french-pressed coffee. Had I not been so jet lagged I would have availed myself more of the assortment of fresh fruits, cereals, eggs (made to order, if you wished), juices, home-make cakes, quiche ,and that's just for starters. They certainly offered the full English breakfast! The staff was ingratiating and helpful and couldn't have done more to please.
I am a lap swimmer and was so pleased to discover the Olympic-size Parkside pool just a 5-minute walk away for a daily rate of just over 4 pounds (sp?). I had debated whether to spring for the Double-Tree for this reason and am so glad I didn't and saved the money for some delicious meals. I highly recommend the Oak Bistro just down the street. The duck confit is delicious.
This is not the Marriott but I was looking for a small English hotel. I would certainly stay again.
