I am working in the area and stay 2 nights a week, I decided to change my hotel every week to see if I could find a nice place to stay on a long term basis. Minworth Lodge was the nearest to my work so I thought I would book and give it a try. I wish I had not bothered, I was glad to book out. You remember to smells of your youth, the old workmen's clubs with that sticky beer split carpet smell, yes, you have guessed, Minworth Lodge is apart from name is that same working man's club with an annex with 19 en suite bedrooms.The room itself, apart from a chemical smell from the toilet and a poor matress, I have to say was of good standard with mine fitted with a new carpet but this did not compensate from the lack of ambiance as soon as you came out of the room. My late room booking suggested breakfast was included, so I thought I would try it. I arrived at 7am and found no tables set in the club lounge and not a person to speak to. I eventually walked to the kitchen and spoke to a lady who said that the booking was on a room only basis, "not according to my confirmation" I said. "why don't you pay for it is a full breakfast including a hot drink for £2.50", I gave it a miss. When I got back later that day for my 2nd night (no refundable or I would have found somewhere else), I discovered my room had not been cleaned. I went to the club bar and politely asked for the Manager, the barman said he had authority. He explained to me that as some of the lads left early in the morning and they did not bother sometimes with cleaning the rooms, and anyway you took the key so we could not get in. Do I have to say anymore. Later he checked my booking and said it did say breakfast so he gave me a £5 refund for 2 breakfasts, for this I thanked him.
