If you want a nice shower and if you want a decent bed, DONT stay here. Bed consisted of two mattresses on top of each other. Could feel the mattress frame and springs in my back all night long. The bed sank in the middle, and if you moved, the bed rocked from side to side due to the frame...

I was met at reception but Grandma who struggled with the computer but she was pleasant enough. Daughter sorted it quickly enough. I got the feeling they were going to sell the business fairly soon from the conversation they were having. My room was small but clean and perfectly fine for what I needed it for....Sleep!! It was situated on...

I stayed here before an early flight from Stansted which is a half hour drive away. I booked through hotels.com and got a single room for £38. Not expensive but given the room quality not good value either! I had room 6 on the 1st floor. The cheaply done notices on every door and wall was a signal of what...

My business colleague stayed here 3 nights whilst delivering a course within the local area. The rooms were booked by 'laterooms.com'. I know you get what you pay for but.... the hotel needs a total refurb or condemned. As he stayed there his thoughts were .....did not complain as when I arrived there was no one to complain to, at...

Stayed here before going to UK Bike Skills for a day Mountain Bike Training. Only 3 miles from the venue. Very glad I did. The staff were very welcoming. You can either have dinner or breakfast in the deal. I had the latter. Really great food. Set me up for the whole day. The room was ok. Overlooked the fields...

Looking for something different I decided to visit the Woodhall Arms Papillon restaurant for supper. It was like stepping back 40 years. More reminisce of seaside package holiday hotel in the late 1970's. Many of the other elderly diners seemed to be quite at home. Food wise the daily set dinner would cost you under £14.00. For me I tried...

Stayed here visiting family over a weekend. Rooms are what you'd expect. Maybe a little tired. But you get what you pay for and can't complain at the price. Went out for dinner on Friday night and came back at 9:55 expecting to be able to get a drink in the bar and the whole place was shut up -...

We have been to Papillon a few times for dinner. The staff are outstanding, so welcoming and friendly. The menu is varied and the food is very good value for money. It has always been served promptly and we have never had any issues. Last year, we stayed on Valentines day. The rooms are very basic and tired but were...

I have never been here and had a bad meal. As always it was excellent Service was very quick and efficient. You cannot fault either the food or service, however the place is really in need of redecoration, it's not dirty just tired. I have been informed that the owner wishes to retire and wants to sell up. I do...

Second stay. Again room ok, clean, comfortable, but in need of an update. Food again very good. Served hot, on hot plates, and well cooked. Very tasty. Had a starter and a main, but struggled to eat it all as both generous servings. If you need a basic room, comfortable bed, and good food then this provides them all.
