“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

I booked this hotel for my partner as a surprise for valentines day. And upon arriving to the front of the building it looked very dated and a bit unloved. But once inside it was very modernly decorated. The receptionist which I think was the owner was polite and helpful. We had a room in the 1st floor which had a bottle of wine in it a massive bed and television. Nicely decorated modern bathroom tea and coffee making facilities. Chocolate dipped strawberries brought to room. Went down for our 4 course meal and it was all lovely. The best steak we have ever had and cooked to perfection. (Compliments to the chef). The only downside was the slowness to clear plates that we had finished and the amount if time between courses was to big. Had some treatment in the aqua sante spa next day which was a very good massage at a very reasonable price. Would definitely return.

My husband booked this hotel as a surprise for me for valentines and it certainly was a surprise. To start with as you walk into the reception you are greeted by the very friendly and welcoming proprietor, Mina, who was very happy to help and very pleasant indeed. She gave us all the information that you would expect from the front desk and did say that if we needed anything else please ask. The room we were given was on the first floor and when we walked into it, well what can you say, it was lovely, very tastefully decorated.
The bathroom was very modern with a large bath which had a power shower over it. The shower was fantastic.
That night we had an evening meal which all I can say to that was, it has got to be the best meal we have had in a long time. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful.
We had a lovely nights sleep and went down to a great English breakfast, which was again served by friendly and helpful staff.
The decor throughout the hotel is very tastefully done and very relaxing.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and would certainly recommend this hotel to our friends.

I arranged to go to a new years eve party at the hotel and pre booked. My friend who was coming as well was told that we had to pay for the event 21 days in advance. Because of the weather situation and because I lived some distance away I asked what would happen if we could not get to the event. I was told that if this occured all monies would be rfunded. We had a family illness which meant we could not come to the party and cancelled over a week before the event. The hotel only agreed to provide 50% of our money back. Do not go to this hotel unless you live on the doorstep

We had a short break at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The overall atmosphere was friendly and the staff could not do enough to ensure we had a good time. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable and the bathroom had a power shower. The breakfast (choice of full English or Continental) was plentiful and delicious and I was pleased to note that the fried eggs were "runny". We did not use the spa but the prices seemed very reasonable. We intend to return at a later date.

We stayed for a couple of nights between Christmas and New year, and as is usual for our stays here we loved it. Our room was warm and comfy; food was excellent, and the atmosphere friendly and welcoming. We really like this hotel, and we'll be back again. And again.....

We have just returned from visiting elderly relatives near Woodhall Spa. This was done at last minute and this hotel could accommodate our needs of 3 rooms on the ground floor as my mother uses a wheelchair. I did read the reviews and was not sure how we would find the hotel.

Although, I would agree that the outside needs money spent on it, where we stayed all rooms had been renovated and the bar, dining area and reception had been newly renovated. The bar was tastfully furnished in a modern style with a large screen TV. Outside of the bar is a cosy area where you can sit by the woodburn fire and chat and relax.

We dined in the first evening; the service was efficient and the food was superbly presented and tasted good. I asked for a tia maria coffee and the waitress obliged and went to the trouble of having it made. The set menu was very reasonably priced for the standard of food.

As we stayed between Christmas and New Years Eve it was quiet and sadly there was only one other table that was occupied.

At breakfast the selection was not as varied as it could be. However, Jane was very friendly and helpful. Mrs. Patel, the owner was very hospitable and caring towards my elderly mother. It was the little touches that made our stay pleasant, such as I left a room door open and Jane got a member of staff to go and close it so we could continue to enjoy our breakfast.

The rooms were very clean, comfortable bed, warm and welcoming. I hope more people will not take notice of the negative remarks because they are untrue. Furthermore, perhaps the moaners are the ones who chose to have a reduced fee for a room being renovated, not a fully refurbished room as we experienced.

The hotel is set in a lovely prime location to all amenities in the village and when we come back to the area we would not hesitate to stay here.

Debbie Quinn.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 - 3 were in a quiet area.
