The Inn at Woodhall Spa has just undergone a £2m refurbishment, but I'd be interested to see how they spent the money? The wife and I stayed in a Superior Double on a one-night, £140.00 DB&B package, which could have covered our stay at The Dower House had they been free. Having previously stayed at The Dower House in Woodhall Spa and been recommended by them to The Inn, our expectations were perhaps higher than they should have been. The Inn at WS offers a central location in a historic, charming small town. The staff are excellent, welcoming and amenable. The newly refurbished rooms are pleasant, with good beds and new carpet with the en-suite power shower being strong and hot. However, our room was decorated without sufficient attention to the application of paint, tile grout or finish to the bathroom floor tiles which left the floor boards exposed around the edges. Would I apply matt paint around a bathroom? Only if I wanted to highlight water splashes. The sound insulation between adjacent bathrooms was stud/plaster board panel and offered little protection from next doors ministrations. There should have been bottled water alongside the T&C facilities. Menu choice in the carvery was slightly upmarket from Little Chef, but we ate in the Brasserie, where staff, service and food presentation were very good, but I felt that the kitchen skills could do with improvement. Where were the daily specials? Breakfast was cooked by one of the Little Chef chefs.....no wonder they're history! No imagination or choice, but same old, same old! There's a terrific patisserie opposite The Inn that likely bakes croissant, danish and no doubt a variety of breads and rolls...they could use a phone call. Moreover, where was the fresh cheese, meats, choice of eggs or even fresh muesli etc that would raise the game? This is Lincolnshire farming country...come on guys, don't waste that £2 million investment! Would I stay again? Not if The Dower House were free.
