“The most rude staff ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2006

Don't stay there - it is not worth it. for 70GBP/ night you don't get a breakfast on the week-end after 9am and you get thrown out of bed in the most unfriendly fashion ever.

Staying at the hotel when attending our friends' wedding, we were awakened rudely on the Sunday morning at 10:30am to be told that by 11am we had to be out of the room.

The rude awakening was actually someone walking into the room when we were still in bed and asleep (we had assumed that check-out was at 12pm, as in most places).

We were in the most harsh tone asked if we had not read the information in the book that is on the desk (of course we had not, since we rushed to the wedding).

Most startled of course we apologized and started getting ready, only to be disturbed again 5mins later when another person was checking if we were getting up - almost catching us naked under the shower!

We got reminded another time another 5mins later - and by that time we were really not happy. How much faster can two people get out of bed, shower and pack than in 30mins?

This was especially frustrating since the staff was very busy sorting out some other rooms, so could have given us those 30mins and just remain friendly.

  • Liked — nothing in particular - it was clean & had a bed.
  • Disliked — the rude unfriendly service.
  • Tips/Secrets — do not go there

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2006

Stayed midweek in July. The room was quiet at the back of the hotel with a lovely view of the garden. The French windows leading out to the garden was a pleasant surprise.

The hotel in general was very clean with good facilities especially for the business traveller, like myself. utilised their wireless broadband - which stretched out into the garden.

Breakfast was good, staff were efficient and very accommodating. For price, location and value for money, I will be staying there again for future visits to the area. Highly recommended.

  • Liked — Cleanliness and value for money. Great business facilities and

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2005

After having read the positive reviews from the active hotels website, I decided to book here for two nights over the weekend in Sept (visiting family). The hotel itself was very clean and comfortable, with facilities that I didn't expect from a 20 bedroom hotel. There were pay movie channels, broadband internet access in our room, a computer room, a quiet bar.

Breakfast was quite busy (bank hol weekend) but still had great service. Luckily the weather held out and we were able to enjoy the lovely garden on offer.

All in all, a real gem of a hotel, really close to the shops, restaurants and even the railway station. Highly reccommended, will be returning again.

A very average hotel. The room I stayed in was clean and tidy but very small. The hotel is situated on a main road not far from the railway station and very close to the bowling greens in Victoria Park. Ideal if you are carrying a heavy bowls bag and don't want to walk very far.
