“Great for a short work event”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

We held a team meeting in the hotel for about 20 people. Rooms were adequate although the showers were not great. Breakfast is straightforward and nothing fancy but hit the mark. The lunch menu was excellent - the burgers particularly good. Bar stayed open late which is always a positive.

For a work event, the hotel ticked all the correct boxes and I am sure we will hold another there at some stage.

Me and a work college stayed at The Rugby Hotel for 7 weeks during November and December 2013.All the hotel staff were helpful, cheerful and efficient. They even kept our push bikes there during our stay. We were starting work at 6 each morning to which the night porter would have a bacon or sausage sandwich waiting for us before we left. The food in the hotel is outstanding and the bar is well stocked with quality beers, ciders etc. The Hotel is excellently located close to shops, restaurants and Bars. The rooms do not carry all the ‘mod cons’ of newer hotels but the hotel was built in the 17 century. Overall the Hotel and the staff make us feel very welcome during our stay, 'a home from home'. If we have to return to the area, we would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear of hotel are quieter

My self and my husband stayed here in December as a Christmas present to ourselves, after reading the reviews on here we were a little apprehensive, however we needn't have worried as we received nothing but good service. When we arrived we was told they were having a problem with the heating, our room was cold but we wasn't going to let that spoil our time there. We ate in the restaurant and although we could see the staff were a little stretched, they were very pleasant to us, we did have to wait a while for our food, however it was a particularly busy evening! We enjoyed our stay here and would stay again, I just hope the heating is working next time : ).

Checking in the receptionist was very pleasant. The room was ABSOLUTELY freezing!! No heating whatsoever in December!! The radiator was broken. We asked to have a look at another room and was given a room with NO heating but with the use of a convector until the radiator in this room was fixed. There was a stone floor in the bathroom with NO heating! We rushed off to finish things for my partners 50th birthday celebration that evening. I returned to inquire about the heating and was told it was fixed. I asked for a bottle to be taken up to our room and ordered breakfast for the morning. We returned to the hotel at 4.30 am to find the heating was not fixed and impossible to use the unheated bathroom obviously affected by below zero temps outside. The convector was noisy and l didn't sleep a wink. The breakfast was not up to standard and had been left under a grill or hotplate to keep warm, we couldn't eat it! We returned the unopened bottle of wine without charge and on checkout we did not pay for the breakfasts.
We did not get a discount on the room. Not at all the same standard of hotel l once applied for a position at!

Room Tip: We had a room facing an alley which was quiet but the lack of heating made the stay impossible to sl...

My partner and I had a great night out on Tuesday evening. I got a good voucher deal for 2 courses plus wine for two people.

The atmosphere was lovely, the service attentive but not intrusive and the food was fantastic!

I'd highly recommend this venue and look forward to a return visit soon.

We popped in on a Friday lunch time, we only had 40 minutes and the bar was very quite, so we both ordered a burger and a drink, the burgers took ages to arrive when we inquired to delay were told restaurant was very busy, we explained in a hurry, and the waitress was very helpful and hurried the order up and refunded our drinks without being asked, when the burgers did arrive they were fantastic ( the best I have ever had) would go back, sometimes problems occur, but it's how they are handled, will go back lovely food reasonably priced and nice staff.
