Littleover Lodge Hotel

Reviewed October 29, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel on 22nd of October in room 2. We arrived ok and were given the key. As we were on a family visit we left our bags and went out visiting immediately. On our return we relaxed and tried to turn the TV on, but could not as the remote did not work. I went to reception and after finding it unmanned with confidential papers on the desk and the mail in full view the receptionist came in.(Not a good start). I was then told." Well it worked ok yesterday". I went back to the room to await the maintenance man who turned up with the assistant manager. Now things improved a lot. He was nice and professional and treated us properly. We later met the owner who was also very pleasant. We talked about the rooms (ours did leak from the roof slightly) and he agreed it was going to be put right and offered us another room. However we decided to leave at this point. It was only the room that we were not happy in coupled with the original receptionists attitude. We did however go back for our evening meal to ensure that we did not feel that the hotel was not good enough. The food was excellent and the service was very good too. We will definitely go back there to eat again and maybe stay when the rooms have been upgraded.

Room Tip: We had Room 2 which is a split level suite. A lot of wasted space downstairs which is a shame and th...

Littleover Lodge provided excellent value for money with a good sized and well equipped double room including breakfast for £54.50 (via Laterooms). The first impression was of a rather scruffy reception area, but our room exceeded expectations and was very clean, if a little "tired" in the bathroom. The bedroom door opened directly into the carpark, with no corridor or any other barrier, so was not very private or quiet. But as we were out late, this did not affect us and we slept well on a comfortable bed. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful and the service was good.
Overall, great value for money.

Room Tip: Might be worth asking for a room away from the carpark for a quieter location (if they have any).

Everything about the weekend stay was first class and as for value for money could not be faulted. All staff were pleasant and friendly and nothing was to much trouble. Food at both evening meal and breakfast excellent and our only moan would be that the breakfast cup of tea did not come in a pot to the table. Really clutching at straws to come up with a negative

Room Tip: Ground floor suite room 1 was spacious and well furnished

The booking process was really easy and we upgraded to a suite.
The hotel is really handy for a variety of attractions, we visited Alton Towers which was a half hour drive away.
We stayed in Room 1. It was a really lovely room, but a few niggles would be that it needed to be maintained a little better. - The balustrade needed repair work, a handle has fallen off one of the drawers, there is a chip in the front window and the room seemed to have a lot of condensation on the windows (no black mould - just wet windows),
The staff were very friendly and polite.
Breakfast in the morning had a nice selection and was help yourself.
Bed was quite comfy, but as a double it could have been better as a king.
Would I stay again? If it was a one night stay then yes, any longer then probably not.

Room Tip: A suite is really lovely as its massive, but suite 1 needs a little repair work

Stopped over at the Littleover Lodge on a Saturday night. The booking process through Booking.com was easy and we got a good rate. Also, the Lodge was very easy to find as it is situated close to the A38. From our room, our view across countryside was impeded by the powerstation chimneys at Loughboro. As another reviewer stated it is a Motel rather than a Hotel. The room was clean and tidy but could have done with a bit of a spruce up as it is a bit on the tired side - particularly the bathroom. Amenities were ok although the hairdryer did not work and the ironing board stashed in the cupboard had definitely seen better days.

We checked in in the afternoon and then went out for the day returning in the evening. Unfortunately as the restaurant is open to the general public and was very busy on a Saturday night, we were unable to park outside our room and had to park at the far end of the car park and then walk to our room. Not necessarily very far but would have been grim if it had been raining. Perhaps a "resident's parking area" might help!

The bed was a bit soft but the sheets were clean and the TV worked. We had breakfast on Sunday morning which was ok with plenty of choice.

I would use the Littleover lodge again as a stopover. It is cheap and cheerful and pleasant enough.

My mother invited a few family members to lunch with her today 15th September at Bentley's at the Lodge and we enjoyed an excellent lunch. The dining room is large and airy with comfortable well spaced seating with external views from some tables, Good food, well served by a well turned out female staff who were friendly and attentive. The area for predinner drinks is not large but is well appointed with comfortable seating. We dine here occasionally and are never dissapointed, today was no exception.

Stopped there on way back from Cornwall and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Anton, the manager, met us with a big smile and that set the scene for the night. Yes it is a little isolated but after 7 hoursdrive all I wanted was a drink and decent food.
Unfortunately the restaurant was booked with a wedding but the bar menu was good enough with a lovely lamb steak being my best pick and superb tasty mint gravy.
Bar staff were really friendly even when ourselves and a few other guests decided on an impromptu late drinking session.
Unfortunately we did struggle to make breakfast time but the staff did help me recover from my hangover by supplying me with some food to help me on my way - cheers
Anton - even though busy with the wedding still managed time to talk to us and was great company - we hope you have a great holiday back in Sardinia in a few weeks.
Rooms were comfortable and clean - bed was great but think I could have slept on a washing line after the drinks

Room Tip: Be prepared for a few slamming doors from 1st floor - not sure why
