Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went there yesterday, myself and some friends. Really lovely food. Friendly staff and a good range of drinks and cocktails. Lovely variety of Mediterranean Food but they do steaks and pizza aswell aswell. All the food looked and tasted lovely. The prices were very reasonable as well. I highly recommend a visit.

Exceptional Sunday lunch. Didn’t know what to expect when we arrived with the decor (leopard skin walls etc) but the food and service was amazing. Ramona our server was excellent, food outstanding and highly recommended. Calamari is the best I have ever eaten. Halloumi amazing. Could not fault any of it.

On arrival we were given upgrade. That's great if the upgrade is clean very dusty . In fact all the landings were dusty carpets ... just attention to detail would be great . We chose not to eat . Area not the best of areas broken into van on car park was worried about leaving car. Very close to train track . And very noisy . Receptionist on leaving was very abrupt and not what you would expect from customer service . Only booked because of going to match .only good thing really was large bath. Toilet seat came off on lifting the lid 😩and dirty hinges .

Sinead , Sam, Debbie and last but NOT least Vibha who won the day by making me Frenchtoast as we make them in Pakistan and India , not to mention Chris and finally not to forget Hucksby who outdoes us being 4 legged and an adorable puppy make this place a special, friendly , loyalty rewarding home away from home. I asked for tap water and Debbie brought me nice bottled water with a glass and brought it to me upstairs . I believe the lovely lady who took my booking on the phone the first time was Chloe but I could be totally wrong about the name was also very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend this hotel situated in the High town 7 minute walk from the station. Looking forward to Vibha s French toast again tomorrow. It's not on the menu but if you ask nicely she ll oblige! They taste nicer the Pakistani way with sugar beaten into it and as Vibha is from Mumbai she knew exactly how to make them! Thanks everyone at Leaside whom I am yet to meet!

I have been different times at The Leaside Hotel for business trips and each time was better than the previous. Wonderful people, they make you feel home. Very tasty food, big portions and a huge variety of beers and gin. Fresh cooked breakfast each morning. 😍 The hotel is very close to the airport and the train station, very good location to reach London and all the connected city around. PS: Parties every weekend 😉

On driving down into the car park, you do wonder what you are going to stay in, however the rooms are good, the food excellent and the staff amazing especially Debbie and Romana. There were 12 of us having a family weekend, we had read the hotel would have loud music until late and the hotel rang to warn. It actually wasn’t too bad and could not be heard in the Coach house suite. The staff couldn’t do enough for us, the restaurant is very quirky and the quality of the food very good.

Awful service! We generally go there once in a while for a drink it use to be a place we loved going for any special celebrations. Today we were made to feel so bad for going their by the manager stating they were too busy and we shouldn’t have come. The waitresses were very kind and kept their cool But the manageress was really quiet rude which she didn’t have to be. If they told us at the entrance by 9am they were not accepting anyone we would not have visited. Disappointed to see such a service level.

The hotel is tucked away in a secret garden. It is very quaint. Rooms are clean and nicely laid out. The room we were in was updated and had nice furnishings as well and amenities. The shining star of this place is the funky restaurant. It has such a cool vibe and our server Ramona was amazing!!!! She introduced me to a new drink and it was the best one I had on our 3 week Europe vacation. The food is delicious too! When we checked in the girl who checked us in (sorry did not get her name) went over and above not only helping us carry our luggage to our top floor suite, but also walking us out to the street to make sure we had the correct directions. The staff is incredible!
