“Nice hotel, but...”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

The disadvantage of a city centre hotel was brought home to us by the seemingly incessant racket from the town's drunken yobs through the night! Otherwise, a comfy hotel although we were aware of different smells throughout the building. Our en suite bathroom smelled strongly of bleach, the room must have had an earlier heavy spray of air freshener, but the nice smell emanating from the kitchen at breakfast time was fine!

We stayed here for just 1 night and glad that it was only 1 night. The walls must be paper-thin as the sound of the TV from the room next to ours (room 20) blared ino our ears ll e Ning and agin in he morning. After midnight I could stand it no longer and phoned the night manager who phoned the room an the TV was switched off ... I heard the phone ring and the conversation.
As well as the paper thin wall, the bed was badly made with bedding not tucked in and the waterproof under-sheet wriggling around all night. No sleep at all.

I booked the restaurant for a family lunch for 16 people to celebrate my wife's 70th.
The manager I spoke to when enquiring was very helpful, and showed me a lovely private, separate dining area which was large enough for our party, but extremely airy and light.
On the day, all our menu requests were met and the traditional Sunday lunches were of a very high standard. Vegetables done just right, and presentation excellent.
The waiter and waitress were attentive, without being obtrusive, and both were cheerful and helpful throughout the meal.

We stayed in room number 3 for 2 nights on a living social deal. Our room was on the first floor facing onto the main road and a local pub called the Ducking Stool. Each night we were either kept awake or woken up by the pubs customers leaving the premises drunk and very loud, shouting at each other seemed the norm... This went on until 4am on the first night but only 2 am on the second. Therefore ask for rooms away from there. The bed room was large as was the bed, but it was one of those romantic style beds, the type where you are thrown into the middle with your partner, my wife in this case, celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary. It wasn't comfortable either. Our first night was spent in the restaurant with only one other couple. The food was well cooked and tasty but expensive, a sweet followed the main course
for which I paid £4.95 for 4 limp 'profita rolls' as indicated on our bill. I should have asked the cost as there was no price listed for sweets, I just didn't expect to pay so much. The staff were excellent and very friendly which made up for some of the disappointment in the hotel. Free WiFi is fine but didn't quite reach as far as our room with any noticeable strength. Would I revisit. Probably but I would make sure I was well away from the Ducking Stool and test the bed first.

Room Tip: Avoid the Ducking Stool side of the hotel

What a lovely surprise it was to stay here! A really lovely hotel, full of nooks and crannies and corridors leading everywhere, it's easy to get lost, but that's part of the charm of the place. Our room was excellent (Number 8), spacious and not cramped in any way. The breakfast was well prepared too and the staff are very helpful and friendly - nothing too much trouble. The car park is the only real draw back, it's very small, so if you have a large car, do park very carefully as the car park is used like a roundabout & shortcut by the locals, though the hotel are addressing this issue very soon. Leominster is a lovely place to visit and I thoroughly recommend you do and stay here!

Room Tip: I'm not sure there is a lift, so if you're not good at stairs ask for a groundfloor room (if...

My company booked this hotel for a team build day. Only 1 colleague stayed overnight and she said it was very good.
We had a room for our meeting which was great value at just £45 . Coffee and buffet lunch ( way too much food) was supplied for an extra price but extremely good.
It was served by really helpful polite staff.
We needed photo copies making and the lady on reception was happy to oblige.
A great day, and all the team were very positive...we are opening a store in the area and will certainly be using this hotel again.

The staff were universally responsive and helpful. We had a pleasant spacious room, well furnished with comfortable beds. Everything worked except for the wi-fi. The restaurant was airy and spacious with comfortable tables and chairs. The quantity and quality of the breakfast was highly satisfactory and the evening meal also of high quality from a varied menu. We also found the central location - much quieter at night than we expected - and the car park particularly convenient as we were able to gain easy access to the main facilities of this attractive small town. The bus station is very close to hand and the railway station is about 15 minutes' walk. We would strongly consider staying here if we wished to visit Leominster again.
