I arrived early 13:30 for afternoon tea with friends, ordered a pot of tea , no charge as we were having tea there. The staff were friendly but professional . On arrival sat out on the terrace but went inside for our tea. The tea started off with a delicious pea and mint soup plus a white onion and cheese... More

Had afternoon tea here with 2 friends. The setting is beautiful and our table overlooked the lovely gardens. The food was nice enough and the atmosphere was quite relaxed. However there did seem to only be one young lady serving in our room and elsewhere so the service was quite slow, not that we were in any rush though. What... More

Our daughter got married here recently. The staff were attentive, polite and eager to please. Food was delicious at the wedding, evening reception and breakfast. The outside seating area of the balmoral suite was an added bonus to those of us who didn't want to dance the night away.

The attached photo taken in my room sums up the level of quality and attention to detail that is Bartle Hall. Smells like a nursing home...tick. Chipped paintwork abounds....tick. Room appears to be furnished from a junk shop...tick. Ancient mattress on bed....tick. Sink in bathroom reluctant to drain....tick. Shower taps in urgent need of replacement...tick. Daily Mail instead of Guardian....tick.

We recently got married here and had the most amazing experience - mainly down to the staff at the hotel for all their hard work!

This hotel flatters to deceive. It looks quite picturesque until you look just a little bit closer. Our suite (Singleton) was absolutely filthy in places, eg dead insects and cobwebs on the inside of several windows. Cracks in walls and cracked bathroom (basin) porcelain. Only one half of the wardrobe opened, with no explanation as to what had happened to... More
