On arriving at the Roxford Lodge 'Hotel' I have to be honest and say I was extremely disappointed.
The Roxford Lodge is advertised on booking.com as a boutique hotel; it is nothing more than a B&B, a very poorly laid out B&B.
I booked this hotel based on the description and images - do not be fooled!!
It cost us £160 for one night, room only. I have no issue with paying this price for a hotel if that is what you get, but we were presented with an almost basement room, with a small window, allowing no light and a clear view from the passing public outside, not to mention the fact that the bus stopped right outside the view of our window. The room was dimly lit, the room lights themselves were very poor, there was a wooden box smack bang in the room that can only be described as a tardis, turns out this was the sauna that booking.com referred to??? a wooden boxed sauna in an already cramped bedroom?? I don't get it.
The room came with a jacuzzi bath; sounds luxurious . . . it wasn't!! the bath was nothing more than a small house tub with holes, it was like something from the 80's, the artificial lighting in the bathroom was also wooful and you couldn't swing a cat in it!
On trying to navigate our way around the area to go for dinner, drinks, we got very poor directions, in fact the receptionist told us to just stop and ask someone!! God bless Google maps eh!
On leaving the hotel, the receptionist was rude and did not even ask how our stay was, which to me just show poor customer service and bad manners.
To be fair to the Roxford, it was clean, so certainly if you are looking for an over priced B&B, the roxford is most defianetly for you . . . All in all I can safely say we wont be back and would be very reluctant to book anything further through booking.com
