My wife and I stayed at the Weatherford (est'd 1892) for one night on our road trip of June 2014. We had been to the Meteor Crater, and en-route to the Grand Canyon. This hotel was in the perfect spot, and was recommended to us by good friends.
We booked several months in advance, and all it took was an email. The hotel did not want even a credit card number to hold the room - I loved that level of trust.
We had been advised to select one of the premium rooms (there are three), and we chose number 42. This is a great room, and we recommend it to you. The only extra we would have liked is a shower curtain around the four-legged bath. Water was everywhere as we tried to shower.
The hotel is easy to find, and there is parking (free) round the back. There were some extension works going on while we were there, and the builders compound and fences blocked a little of the parking areas. We were fortunate the find the lady owner (who introduced herself as 'Sam') supervising the works and she guided us to a parking spot.
Check in was easy, and we were given coupons for 2-for-1 appetizers and 2-for-1 breakfasts.
If you are looking for a squeeky-new Marriott, don't stay here. This is a historic property, and has been / is being refurbished sympathetically in keeping. We had an iron bed, and a period stove in our room - we though these were really charming. As I mentioned, the bathroom has a free-standing iron bath.
We had dinner on the surround-balcony, and watched the sun set. Food was simple, but reasonably priced and tasty. The bar serves a variety of real ales. The town has a number of breweries, and we went for a walk later to sample them - highly recommended.
There was some noise in the morning as the builders were getting back to work, but we were up by that time. Breakfast was nice, and we used our coupon.
If my review has helped you, I'd appreciate your "Helpful" vote - have a great trip!
