Loved it

Customer review rating 4.4/5

It was very pleasant. Staff was lovely and very welcoming and helpful. Room was gorgeous

Nice dog friendly hotel

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Roy Business - 29/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Due to circumstances my dog had to come with me, this simply wasn't an issue for the hotel & staff. Friendly towards me and my dog, nothing was too much. Strange thing, the executive rooms don't have a bath but the lower rooms do. It's the opposite everywhere else! Room 447 for the best castle view (or that side anyway)

Ok But Bit Frustrating

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Couples - 25/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Check in staff lovely and initial standard room was good but couldn’t connect device to TV to watch Netflix etc and tv itself had no on demand and only a few channels. Asked staff who switched it off and on but it wouldn’t function at all after being switched off, so we were moved to a different room and given a free upgrade to an executive suite which was very nice. However after a few hours it became apparent that the toilet was broken as it flushed continuously. Staff member moved us to a room down the corridor, but by this stage it was 10pm and it felt like our evening had mainly consisted of unpacking and packing. Swimming pool and gym were great. On packing up to leave, noticed a used face mask under the desk which wasn’t ours, which is a bit worrying re cleanliness. Felt a bit understaffed as in the evenings they only had one staff member for the reception, room service and sorting out any other issues so she was rushed off her feet and there was a bit of a wait for things.

Great stay

A very enjoyable stay in a comfortable room. Very COVID-19 secure. Delicious evening meal, lovely swimming pool, ample breakfast with homemade toffee cake. Superb central location, with car parking available. Staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Thank you!

Morgan L. Couples - 20/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our hotel room was absolutely outstanding, one of the best rooms i’ve stayed in. The staff were tremendous from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. The pool was amazing, gutted we couldn’t get into the jacuzzi. The food was good, although again gutted we couldn’t sit down and have a meal in the restaurant due to covid but will hopefully be returning once everything is back to normal. Couldn’t fault them, amazing stay!

Lovely hotel

Given Covid restrictions I felt very safe. This is a lovely budget hotel. Obviously operating with a skeleton staff who were nothing but pleasant and helpful. Delightful stay.

Disappointing

Nice hotel , friendly staff

Janie B. Couples - 14/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Really enjoyed our stay but we were slightly concerned when we found a cork from a bottle under the bed on arrival as we expected the room to be deep cleaned due to virus. Other than this it was a lovely stay.

Not as nice as we’d hoped

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Fiona S. Couples - 12/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was really cold and we couldn’t get it to heat up, so had to get a heater from reception. The toilet does lock. It has a mirror on the back of the door. The sink is in a different part of the suite. The shower is partially see through. The carpets were quite worn down and stained. There was cobwebs in the corner of the room. The TV was incredibly slow to use. We were told there would be a Nespresso machine in the room but there was only a kettle. No robes provided.

Reasonable but not amazing

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Solo - 11/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel was well situated and nothing was bad about it but it felt a little down at heel. My bath filler was broken and I couldn't cast my phone content to the TV. Nothing serious but it just felt like the place had seen better days

Well located

Mr D. K. Couples - 06/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Disappointed that me and my other half needed a night away! We were told on phn restaurant was open which wasn’t true we had to eat dinner in our room with 1 seat and table other person dinner on lap!! Also room was freezing cold we contacted reception they brought a very small heather which did take the chill out the room but room was still cold my other half had to sleep with her cloths on and was still up 4/6 times during the night as she was still cold!

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Business - 03/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stayed for a few nights during the week at the end of November. My room was excellent: clean and tidy with a comfortable bed and a great shower. The staff from start to finish were incredibly friendly and helpful, explaining everything from how to order room service to booking to use the pool. Room service itself was great, with ordering done through WhatsApp - something I found incredibly useful and convenient - the meals were promptly delivered and tasted great, unlike other brands I’ve stayed at it’s good to see a hotel not using the pandemic as an excuse to cost cut and compromise on quality. That conveniently brings me to breakfast - a hot buffet served by a member of staff which was delicious and had a good variety of items. Whereas other brands have decided to temporarily remove hot food at breakfast citing “covid restrictions” it was nice to instead have something which felt as close to normality in these times. All in all an excellent experience and a hotel I would throughly recommend.

Fantastic stay very friendly staff

Joe W. Couples - 01/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The stay was first class, staff could not be any better. The COVID restrictions were well implemented but did not remove anything from the stay. The pool experience was fantastic, well done to all your staff.

Great Location, friendly staff.
