“Perfectly Adequate”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Good family room at a very reasonable price. Décor is dated but it was clean. Very warm room too which we liked. Good breakfast freshly cooked and very tasty. Would suggest you call Best Western as we paid less booking over the telephone than the advertised rate on the website. For what it was we enjoyed our stay and would stay in a Best Western again.

Stayed here on the 15th January through work. On arrival I stood for five minutes waiting for a member of staff to turn up at reception. I have to say the member of staff was very polite and professional.
On entering my bedroom (17.00) it was freezing! I turned the heater to full and kept my jacket on.

The room itself was tired looking with wall paper splitting away from the wall (dampness). It was obvious that the room had very recently been painted as the fumes were overwhelming - gloss paint.

I ran the bath (clean but tired looking bathroom which was also freezing) after having a bath I noticed that my black jacket was covered in white paint particles. These were falling from the ceiling like snow when the people in the room above were moving around - nice!

I had a drink in the bar - very comfortable, great service and a warm welcome.

Left to meet colleague and returned at 10pm. Room was warm now but the paint smell was even more noticable.

Bedside lamp didn't work, noise from the main road and the guests above coupled with the smell of gloss paint kept me awake most of the evening.
Breakfast was great as was the welcome and the service. I would suggest that in future the hotel does not let rooms that have been decorated that day!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the main road.

We merely stopped here for a quick lunch. The main restaurant was full to overflowing (Saturday lunchtime) so we sat in the bar area. Very comfortable and not over-noisy. We both had an individual quiche with home-made coleslaw. The food was presented very well and was extremely tasty - just the right amount to keep us going on our trawl round the antique shops! Good service and good price too, so highly recommended. The building looks a little run down from the outside, but inside it is spotlessly clean and quite modern - very comfortable seating in the bar area, too.

Stayed here for 2 nights with work.
Room (double with a bath) was on the road side of the hotel - a bit of traffic noise but didn't keep me awake.
Excellent meal in evening - good menu choice - meal for under £10 and up to £20 also.
Breakfast was good - good range of foods.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Plenty for comfortable sofas for relaxing in bar in evening.

Stayed on New Years Eve, had dinner first which was lovely..8 of us all enjoyed our meals and we were served by friendly staff..then enjoyed the evenings entertainment with live music by a band called Gingersnap..The rooms were spotless and the only comment not positive was that you can hear any noise from the other guests in their rooms, but would recommend this hotel and would definitely go back again.

Thank you for your kind review of the Admiral Rodney Hotel. Our New Year’s Eve was a great night and it is lovely to hear that you had such a wonderful time. With our live band and a full restaurant there was a great atmosphere around the hotel, and the staff enjoyed it as much as the customers! Thank you for your high recommendation.

First time at the hotel and was very impressed with the very well running of it . The dinner was very good and there was plenty of room between the tables so not sitting on top of very one. There was 5 people in our group and we only had 1 plate of veg for all 5 of us but noticed that the same amount of veg was being served to tables with only 2 or 3 people . I had cheese and biscuits for my dessert it was nice but would have been better if I was asked what cheese I wanted , but these were only minor things. Would book again for a Christmas dinner. The surrounding were very festive and all of the staff were very friendly and happy .

Room Tip: Book in the summer so you don't miss out . Very popular hotel for Christmas dinner
