“A Handbasin little bigger than the size of your hand!”
Reviewed 18 July 2007

Friendly welcome that continued throughout stay. Yhe hotel was apparently full and perhaps I was unlucky with my room which was in old Coach House. Room very small with tiniest wash basin I have seen in 35 years of travelling. Room clean but troubled by traffic noise from Roman Road below.
Restaurant welcoming and Dinner well prepared and quickly served. Breakfast in the morning hot,good and cheerfully served. Owners upgrading but need to do something about the room I stayed in.

Stayed here a couple of times with my wife, the rooms are excellent with a modern and clean feel. They are very comfortable. The restaraunt is warm and welcoming and the breakfast is as comprehensive as you could imagine. Not much more to add really, superb accomodation, spotlessly clean, tasty food, picturesque setting and not unreasonably priced.

  • Liked — Rooms comfort and Cleanliness
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask for any special rates which may be on offer

Having had big problems with another local hotel, which had managed to double book, the nice people at Northover Lodge were very friendly and accommodating to my family and I. Price was in fact, cheaper on a B&B basis than the hotel we were originally booked in to and, I suspect, a fair bit nicer too.

Room size was adequate, even when the need for a travel cot was taken into consideration. Furnishing was stylish and modern, which was an interesting contrast to the building and surroundings.

En-suite was shower only, though this was advised when checking in and was perfectly adequate and pleasingly clean, tidy and functional.

Bed was comfortable and had duvet, as opposed to sheets, with both my Wife and I usually prefer, though given it was mid summer and very hot, we had not cause to use... which leads to my only complaint (or rather 'suggestion', which was made to the staff member when we checked out) regarding the lack of cooling in the room. Air Conditioning in such a building is perhaps impractical, but an electric fan would have made a huge difference. Indeed, when this was suggested, I was advised that some fans had been purchased, but were all in use. I'd definitely recommend getting some more!

Breakfast was excellent, with a Full English or Continental available. Both my wife and I had the former, which was prepared to order. There was also a good range of cereals and a fruit salad available. Service from the staff was excellent.

Gravel Car Park was available to the rear of the premises, with a relief car park available on the grass area beyond that .

Overall, a good value, family friendly hotel, which I would happily visit again - particularly if they invest in those fans!

  • Liked — Clean, tidy & comfortable bed. Good shower
  • Disliked — Very hot as result of summer weather, but not cooling mechanism, such as fan or A/C
  • Tips/Secrets — If you are in a big hurry and are partial, the nearby chip shop is handy.
