“Nice building from the outside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

I have now stayed here twice. And both times, wished I hadn't. The food is good and that's where it ends for me. Both times my rooms have been very out dated and crusty. Cracked toilet, rust around the bath, ironing boards and irons that need replacing. No air con in the this room, so it was either to hot or to cold. My bed sheets had blue ink like marks – these where big, so the housekeepers would have seen this while putting them on the bed. TV was way to hard to work – first night I had 6 channels by the end of my stay I had 3. The night reception guy is lovely and friendly, but the morning lady – not so much.

Stayed here for a wedding. Plenty of FREE parking on site. Room quite spacious with sofa and large bathroom. Air con was noisy though. Overall rooms seem to have been nicely redecorated and represented good value. Emily on reception was very helpful as were F&B staff.

Room Tip: Room at rear of building as away from busy Doncaster Road

My wife and I were recently married at this place. And the months of planning we have received amazing service and care from Amy and Sharon who did everything they could to help.

The rooms were amazing, our suite where we stayed the night was spacious and beautiful.

All the guests at the wedding said it was the best food ever at a wedding and I have to agree!!

Thank you for all your help!

Deluxe Room we had was nice but lil outdated but still nice none the less. Arrived on a warm July day and their was this loud annoying noise which after calling reception we were told was the air conditioner system as there was a conference on, was so annoyingly loud but I guess we were right next to it. Went to open windows to let in some light and windows looked out to this absolutely tiny hexagon shaped courtyard thing which looked UGLY and other rooms all looked out to this also. So I soon closed the curtains down again one cause of ugly view and two didnt want other rooms seeing in.

Bathroom spa wasn't 100% clean had lil scum around plug hole so washed before use.

Booked with room 2 fully cooked breakfasts inroom, but would have been nice to be told at check it, that we had tocall and order what we wanted in morning and between what times as almost missed out waiting for it to arrived as we guessed it was set meal. And when food arrived it was cold like many others have stated

Manager on check in was rude barely gave us a look in and was to busy doing what ever he was doing to really even speak to us.

Very good location if you are attending something in that immediate area. We had wedding near by so was only reason we booked there. Would have stayed someone nicer with lovely view for price we paid.

Room Tip: Food maybe hotter if you eat in restaurant and not have room service!

Thank you for taking the time to review Beau Monde International and I am so sorry your stay was not up to our usual high standards. It was disappointing to read your comments about the spa, your feedback has been passed onto our Executive Housekeeper and I can assure you that all spas are cleaned daily. I hope we are able to welcome you back to our hotel again in the future.

I stayed in a deluxe room (number 26) and enjoy the spacious room and peace and quiet the hotel had to offer. The bathroom is large with a big corner spa, with a shower over the spa (not my favourite, but nothing major to complain about).

The room service menu is restricted, with fairly average fare (dim sums, vegetarian pizza, chips, ham and cheese sandwich) and the food was quite cold when it arrived.

Check-in and out was quick and the staff are pleasant.

Room Tip: Room 26 is lovely.

The building itself is stunning but the rooms interior a bit outdated. The reception girl was cold and without a smile. We also purchased breakfast offer which was advertised as 50% off, but then found out that their kitchen was being renovated, so all we got was toast and jam pretty much, which would of been sill fine with nice coffee. But the coffee she offered us was cold! When my husband asked if we can please have hot coffee, she when to get it but failed to meditation to us when it was ready so we waited for the coffee, by the time we realized it was ready we had to go. It would of been nice, to hear "sorry, and here is the hot coffee for you". Would never stay there again.
Oh and in the morning you hear all the traffic and the windows do not have proper blinds, so you wake up with sun in your eyes!

We stayed at beau monde for a weekend away from the kids to celebrate our anniversary. Room was spacious and comfortable with everything we needed. It was a special romance package and the staff made sure everything was ready for when we arrived. Didn't eat in restaurant, but room service for dinner was nice and the staff even sent a nice glass of sparkling for us! Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask about packages for special occasions
