Recently spent 3 nights in a standard twin room with my daughter. We stayed here as we had booked a balloon flight and thought this hotel would be central for us. The room and the ensuite was quite small. The sink tiny and near on impossible not to get water over the floor when

Many thanks for your review Annclare, I was very sorry to read your comments and I would be grateful if you could contact the hotel via the guest relations email so that these issues can be looked into.

Myself and my husband stayed here for the night after our wedding. We were really not happy with the signature suite room we stayed in, especially as we paid £180 for 1 night. On arrival, considering I was standing there in a wedding dress the man did not once smile,

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review Amy, as we explained in our email response to you we do not offer complimentary Champagne for weddings booked at other venues, I am sorry if this came as a disappointment to you. We did however give complimentary upgrades to every member of your party. I apologise once again for the oversight with the dinner tray. Thanks again for the review Amy, please accept the very best wishes of everybody at The Mandolay for a long, healthy and happy marriage.

I went to the Mandolay Hotel & Conference Center for a conference and I also stayed there for the night and loved it. The staff were very helpful and had a wonderful restful sleep. Very nice boutique hotel, it’s a bit pricey and not a great coffee bar, very look warm coffee, but

I’ve been here twice. This hotel is in a great location, handy for town and other eating venues. The rooms I’ve stayed in have been nice in appearance and clean. The bed was comfy. The staff are friendly. A couple of negatives: it seems to be a hot hotel. Even with radiators

Thanks for your review and kind comments, the changeable weather has certainly provided a few challenges recently, not quite 'Four Seasons in One Day' but not far off! We do though have electric fans and heaters for those bedrooms without air conditioning.

From kids running up and down the stairs to men in football shirts shouting in the corridors, this was not a restful hotel visit. The people upstairs sounded as if they were coming through the ceiling. We were unlucky enough to be right next to a staircase so it sounded like a

Thanks Sarah, despite the fact that your comments made less than pleasant reading I am grateful to you for taking the time to leave a review. The hotel hosted a charity event at the weekend and there was indeed some boisterous behaviour, we made every effort to locate guests uninvolved with the event in the rear of the hotel, unfortunately as you booked through a third party website we had no way of knowing if you were staying independently or as part of the event group. Had you made us aware upon check-in or at any time during your stay, we would have made every effort to relocate you to a quieter part of the hotel. The noise you heard at 1.00am was the event equipment being loaded onto a van, again had we been alerted to this disturbance at the time our night management team would have dealt with the matter immediately. The event raised a great deal of money for charity but I can appreciate that this might be of little consequence to you and I offer my apologies for the disturbance.

What time is breakfast served at the weekends?
from 07:30-10:30 I would still suggest ask the reception for any newest updates

The parking at the hotel seems to be very limited. Just a few spaces in the front. They do have a car park at the back with a barrier, which I think is for staff and disabled. Perhaps you could ask if you could park there. Alternatively there is the Pay & Display Car Park opposite, but not sure what the costs are for an all day ticket.

Can they accommodate an early check in?
"Try to book a room with a double bed (even if you are solo)"
"Up grade as rooms at top of hotel are luxurious"
"Avoid Single rooms, very small in my experience."
"Suite other rooms small also no double glazing"
"Don't get the basement rooms"
US$88 - US$177 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
