      Individual guest reviews

        The grounds, nice and relaing

        Rooms small, cobwebs, ripped pillow case, no remote control for tv, difficult to adjust hot waterFood too expensive to eat in restaurant when on business we only have a limit of £15.Bar food very little choice - if staying more than one night you woul dhave to have the same meal.

        We stayed at this hotel as a family wedding was being held here. Nothing was to much trouble and the staff were excellent.

        Our bedroom was on the small size but speaking to other guests ours was average size but some were bigger.

      • Single
        5.4

        Clean room and free wifi.

        Staff were a little abrupt - wasn't even offered assistance to my room...it was just pointed at..paper thin walls (could hear every single word from the next room!), and very cramped - would get more space / comfort at a premier inn! Cooked breakfast was cold when I had it, so much so that I went to starbucks the following day instead. Was unimpressed by the fact that there was a very loud group of guests at an event there on the saturday night - I was kept awake for hours and my relaxing stay was not very relaxing. Wine bottles and pint glasses on the grass outside my window the next morning as well. Other guests should not have to put up with this if it is an event venue. Overall for what you pay, you would be better off staying at Prem Inn - at least they ask you how your stay was when you leave!

        It is really close to the new harry potter attraction and is a good base for going to thorpe park .also the gardens make for a relaxing walk.

        Nice surroundings otherwise little else to recommend it.

        Very small rooms

        The hotel was beautiful, pool was lovely. People had said on the reviews about the corridors, but they were beautiful, full glass with views of the grounds. We had a wonderful time and the staff and food were great

      • Couple
        8.8

        Beautiful location and very clean, it was tasetefully decorated. Good price too.

        The room was very cold and even though I switched the radiator to # 6 but it didn't get warm and the bath water was luke warm.

      • Couple
        8.8

        The room was comfortable and reception friendly. The food was very enjoyable too.

        The service wasn't quick. We had an issue with our TV that was not fixed in the two days we were there even though we were told someone was coming.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The location was perfect and the surrounding of the hotel was very peaceful. Breakfast was good too

        Did not like the noise overnight from the next room the soundproofing does not work. The sobbing and shouting was very very annoying especially as our stay was for a funeral

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        Almost everything, right from arrival to departure the experience was great and the staff very helpful, the rooms where slightly on the small side but suitable and well decorated, felt like staying in a 4-5* hotel complex abroad, after 11 hours journey time it was great to arrive, check in and get settled quickly, staff where polite and courtious.

        2 major issues, first was the other guests appears there was a weddinging party and I believe 2 doors down they where celebratign well into the night / morning, very loud and inconsiderate (hotel management immediately apologised and re-located us, also recieved complimentry breakfast in the morning so service was excellent!), second issue was the heat, we where located in the block above the swimmingpool and I can only assume this was the source of the excessive heat in the rooms as we had the window open full and a fan on all night trying to keep the heat down, both rooms #27 and #5 where the same, this would have been great in winter!

        The weekrnd was just perfect staff and venue.

        9.6

        Clean and modern, with a lovely swimming pool, the free tea,coffee and cakes in the bar was great, beautiful gardens,good location for harry potter tour as its minutes (by car)

      • Couple
        7.8

        The price £109 was worth every penny as facilities and location ideal for what we needed that weekend. Would always now look to stay there if ever going back that way.

        Missing a spa, but you cant always have everything though. This is just minor though and would not stop us staying there again.

        Great reception staff helpful and friendly including night receptionist clean room comfortable bed enjoyed our stay

        Breakfast good value for money however wheat free bread should be available as limited my breakfast choice .
