“Not a good experience - won't repeat it”
Reviewed July 21, 2007

Stayed for one night on business locally. Wish I hadn't. It was very impersonnel and because of an event being held, very noisy. Around 2.00am a football was being kicked up and down the main staircase which helped! The hotel is very sprawling with no lifts. I was left to find my way past the bar, along past the kitchens, through several hallways up a further set of stairs and finally reached the room. A woman on my own with a case, I would have appreciated some help. It was also intimidating past the bar area. I did not bother with breakfast as it was too far to walk down and back in time to leave at 7.00am. Breakfast is only served from 7.30am anyway, and there is no room service. Large, lovely grounds, but if there is a conference being held, forget it! Will stay elsewhere in future.

We just celebrated New Year at Theobalds Park at a murder mystery event. The hotel has an old part shown on the official photo with a new building attached to it. It is a clean modern hotel and the rooms were adequate. The lighting is rather dim in the rooms which I personally find annoying. There are free coffee stations situated around the hotel - a great touch. Smoking is allowed in one bar only, unfortunately our event was right next to that bar. Staff were friendly but not very well organised at breakfast but it was New Years day so perhaps I should let them off. The hotel has leisure facilites which we didn't use but they looked nice. Food was excellent. It looks like the hotel specialises in business conferences as the breakfast normally frinishes at 9am and normal check out time is also 9am which is a bit early if you are looking for a leisure stay. (There was a special late breakfast and check out for New Year thank goodness!) Anyway this is a very nice hotel with beautiful grounds and the friendly staff did their best. The old part of the hotel has beautifully renovated decorative ceilings and mosaic floors and we loved the peculiar looking lion statues at the entrance.

  • Liked — Fresh contemporary design and free coffee
  • Disliked — Smoky bar
  • Stayed December 2006, traveled with friends
