“Fabulous Hotel, 1st Class Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2011

We stayed for 3 nights at this Hotel on our honeymoon in one of their 4 poster bedrooms. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend the Hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing break in a hotel with a touch of class. The staff were very friendly and we received first class service with a smile. Our room was clean and very comfortable and the jacuzzi bath was lovely! Breakfast was fantastic, plenty of choice with hot breakfast cooked fresh. We also had an evening meal in the hotel and were very impressed, first class food and superbly presented in a lovely atmosphere. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens, perfect!! The only negative thing (though a minor issue) was that our room was located at the front of the hotel and our windows had only heavy curtains for privacy. Blinds would have made a difference. There are couple of pubs in the area within walking distance but you really do need transport to get the most out of the surrounding countryside. Overall, a fantastic hotel, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Evening meal a must and well worth every penny.

We have enjoyed several meals at the Haycock over the last few years. the food has always been good and the service has always been attentive.
This time however our Sunday lunch left us distinctly disappointed. Again we enjoyed lovely food but the service was much slower than it should have been considering that the restaurant was barely a third full with two waiters in the room.
It is a shame that a place with such potential lets itself down with a lack of attentive service.

We have just got back from a wonderful weekend, 2 night stay and I felt I had to let others know what a great place to stay. We had DBB, the food was amazeing the service second to none, from the moment we arrived the friendliness of all the staff was fantastic, infact I would say the most friendly hotel I have stayed. I will deffinately be going back soon.

Visited The Haycock for the first time having passed it countless times on the A1 always wondering what it was like. 14 of attended a birthday celebration over Sunday lunch and I have to say it was one of the best Sunday lunches out that I have had. Beautifully cooked beef, excellent yorkshire puddings and a good selection of vegetables, preceeded by a lovely smoked salmon starter on a bed of potato salad which was to die for!
The waiting staff were excellent, attentive, warm and friendly and the barman was also first class. I would happily recommend The Haycock and now I've been there after all these years I will definitely be returning.

We visited the Haycock for lunch, despite having read poor reviews of sunday lunch when there was Weddings on, but decided to try nonetheless. ...And sadly we were poorly attended by the staff.
The Waitresses seemed to be in abundance and I could almost excuse the staff for taking so long to bring the menu, so long to bring the wine we ordered, taking so long to bring the bIll that we walked out and tried to pay at the bar, if there was none of them and they were all at the wedding party but there was a few of them and they didn´t seem to be busy or rushed off their feet. The food was excellent and was of worthy of comment but the service was poor and took the shine off a lovely meal.

Me and my husband chose the haycock hotel after attending one of their wedding fairs, where all the staff where above and beyond helpful.
When we decided this was our venue, the wedding co-ordinator theresa, and her staff were there every step of the way.
I could not thank them enough for their passion and enthusiasm, our day was made so special and i couldnt have asked for anything more.
Before the day no question was to much trouble and likewise for special requests.
On the day, our guests were met with the highest of friendliness, cleanliness and enthusiasm.
The food- what can i say, absolutly fantastic... we paraded the head chef to our guests who, like us held him with the highest regard.

We were delayed in leaving our room, the checkout time had passed, this was no problem for the staff, not once did we feel rushed to finish our day, or to leave this fantastic venue.

This small peace of paradise hidden from the a1 was our perfect place to get married.
