Found a good deal via laterooms bur wish we had booked direct. Great place, lovely staff and really homely, comfortable and relaxed feel about the place. There is nothing to fault. Would definately recommend Kirkby House to anyone and we will definately go back.

We stumbled onto the Kirkby House website when looking for an overnighter. If we had known how good it was going to be we would have stayed longer. Briiliant family unit accommodation- huge room, pillow soft beds and a bathroom to die for including a gigantic jacuzzi. Make sure you ask for Room number 5. And did I mention how good the home cooked food was. Brilliant hosts - I don't know how they do it for the price but I'm not complaining

Room Tip: Room number 5 is a must for families

We came across this quest house by chance and i must say we were very surprised. Our room was very large with a lovely big bathroom with a double jacuzzi which looked so inviting we nearly decided to skip the wedding we were going to. We were made to feel very welcome and they were very helpful in arranging a taxi to take us to the wedding venue. There is a quest lounge and a bar and they do evening meals as well. We were a little suprised to find it bursting with young ladies in their underware doing a photoshoot for miss england and young men dressed as gangsters but my partner liked it lol

Our first impressions of Kirkby House were that it was an amazing building, we were told later it was built in the 1700's and it retains all of its characteristics. We checked in and our room did not disappoint, we had requested a large bathroom and had a large corner bath and a seperate shower. Everything was very old fashioned and authentic, wooden beams and the like making it very charming and romantic.

The rooms were spotless and all the staff really friendly. They recommended a local Indian Restaurant for us (literally two minutes down the road) that was very high standard. The next night we ate in their restaurant however we were a little disappointed with the food as we had such high expectations having been impressed with everything else. There was a good selection of starters and main courses but I would only give the food we chose a 3 out of 5 based on the fact that my starter (pate) and dessert (treacle pudding) seemed supermarket bought.

Breakfast was lovely with a good selection both days and overall we had a really nice stay and would definately recommend.

We stayed here for 9 days due to a deal that was being offered. Steve, the principal manager, is extremely friendly and helpful and the building looks good and picturesque (with high quality and good looking UPVC windows) but otherwise this is a pretty ropey operation that is more like staying in a family b&b than a real hotel.

A number of the cleaners are lazy and quite rude - one told us one morning that our room hadn't been cleaned the previous day because she had to leave early for family reasons; hardly our problem but just an example of how poorly the cleaners seem to be managed. Another told us another day that our room hadn't been cleaned because we supposedly were still in the hotel - despite us actually having left hours before and the carpark being empty; it was clear she knew this was a lie and just didn't care.

Incidentally the room cleaning only happens before 10.30 am - so forget any idea of staying in bed after 8.30am if you want your room cleaned. Even when our room was cleaned it was only hoovered once over 9 days and we eventually had to insist on the sheets being changed as they weren't otherwise.

Overall the setup is to benefit the management rather than guests - for example we were told that all the breakfast things needed to be taken away by 8.30, so clearly anyone wanting a breakfast later than 8 am is out of luck.

Breakfast is not included in the price anyway.

The management would clearly prefer you to eat in rather than go out, but the prices are not cheap. There are also prissy signs in the bedrooms warning of undefined charges to your credit card if you have the temerity to eat any food in the room; and in theory any alcohol you bring into the building incurs a £7.50 per bottle 'corkage' charge!

Beware the cheaper rooms as their bathrooms and toilets are on different floors.

The bathroom carpets were dirty and needed replacing. Toilet rolls were not renewed.

Heating goes off during the night and after 9 am during the day, so bring some warm night clothes.

The race circuit is very close so you will hear this during the day if you are not out and about on a race day.

So not bad but some real problems ... It could be much better.
