“Business Meeting Venue”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I would just like to say thank you to the staff at the Park Head. We used their largest room for a meeting a couple of weeks ago and the service was first class. I could comment on a range of things, such as the quality of the food, price etc. but in all honesty as anyone else who holds meetings will know, the key thing is you just want everything to be hassle free and that's what the team at the hotel provided. Nothing was too much trouble. A great value venue.

We have just spent a 3-night week-end @ Park Head with Newmarket Travel. All the staff were pleasant, chatty and helpful. A special mention for proprietor Simon and chef Gareth. The accommodation, hospitality and food were all good. It was also nice to see the younger staff enjoying their work and knowing how to socialise and be helpful.

My husband and I had a lovely meal at this Hotel after a long journey. The staff were very helpful and made us feel welcome especially Georgia who couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely call here again if we are in the area and look forward to meeting Georgia again. Thanks again.

Just had my third stay in four years at the Park Head. Always good quality food, nice friendly staff and, clean tidy rooms, the mobile phone signal is usually ok but weak, but in room 13 it was zero, and the WiFi though free and accessible throughout, is sporadic last year I was in 15 near the main building and it was ok in 13 I could log on but had no Internet access. To be fair the staff were great and offered to move me but once I'm in a room I hate messing around. Even for the area the B&B price was very good. Even better if you don't book direct with the hotel???

Room Tip: If you want decent WiFi and mobile phone access you need to be near reception. If not they are all o...

We have recently celebrated our wedding at this venue......the only word to describe this was "perfect". During the lead up to the event Claire was great sharing ideas and keeping us on the right track. The evening prior to the wedding we had a fantastic family meal and from there on things got better and better. Thank you Claire, Tony and your staff you gave us a fabulous day, nothing was too much trouble....you even entertained a couple of "little monkeys"...and that too was much appreciated. Keep doing what you are doing and I am sure you will give many more couples a perfect day.

The room was very clean and spacious, tastefully decorated with beautiful views. Everyone of the staff were really helpful and polite. I would definitely return even if only for the breakfast! My husband could even see the village where he was brought up, which made this visit even more special. The weather may have been cold but the welcome was very warm, as was the room.
