5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Booked a table for four at the hotel, the service was impeccable with Molly looking after the table, the menu was extensive with a good choice of food, bar was also well stocked, did not stay at the hotel but have stayed there in the past and found the service as in the past 1st class.

Could do with some hooks on the doors to hang a coat on. The wardrobe was not big enough, and a chest of drawers for additional storage space would be useful. A handrail next to the high step opposite the coffee shop would be a good thing.

Excellent value for money with friendly staff, warm welcome and very good service. Breakfast was good and bar friendly . Location was perfect for a walk around town and easily accessible by car. Didn't eat in restaurant but looked extremely good with a good choice on the menu. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends or work colleagues if in... More

The room we had mould spots around the bath. The window was single glaze and did not shut properly due to outside creepers growing in. The corridor leading to the room also had plants growing in through the windows preventing them from being closed. Again mould around the window. Also no heating was on - which consisted of piped radiator... More

From the time my mother and I arrived to the time we left the service and friendliness of all the staff was excellent. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Food was fabulous. If ever in this part of the country again we would definitely make this hotel our first choice.

Good, comfortable accommodation, a very good restaurant and very helpful and friendly staff. The cooked breakfasts are splendid but you need to be up betimes to catch the buffet on busy days. Recommended as a base for touring this part of the country.

The wedding reception was well organised, and the room we had was spacious, but spoiled by the lack of cleanliness in the bathroom in particular. I think it was overpriced for what it was. Breakfast not very well planned although the food was great. You had to walk through to the outside to help yourself to the juice and make... More

Sadly if you want to stay in Oundle there are few alternatives! This booking should have been a treat but it was really disappointing. I'd heard other guests complain but thought it might just be high expectations or one offs. Sadly we also left feeling let down....irregular plumbing, taps difficult to turn ( in an accessible room) long waits for... More

Thank you for your review and please accept my apologies for the disappointing stay you had with us.

Manager on reception (Neil) and his colleague went out of their way to assist us with our stay. Bar manager knew his wines and offered informed advice, including making sure we didn't disappear to bed before having 'one for the road'. You have a very good and friendly team at this hotel.
