“Good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed for one night on way to York. This was a good location for us as it was just off the motorway and easy for us to break up our journey. Our room was spacious and bed comfortable. We enjoyed our evening meal, there was a good reasonable priced menu. Breakfast was also enjoyable. Friendly staff.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

Have stayed here before and been fine fine but last night we were in room 1. The noise from the kitchen extractor plus the heating was appalling, worst nights sleep ever. I did complain to the receptionist but he really couldn't have cared less. It's a pity because the function was excellent, the food great and the breakfast was also good. Spoiled a good night.

Room Tip: Do not sleep in room 1

Hello and thank you for your review of your stay with us at the Appleby Inn Hotel. It is with great regret we read of your disappointment regarding your stay with us, our aim is to leave all guests departing with a smile after a relaxing stopover in a homely atmosphere we apologise if you felt this was not the case.
In regards to your comment regarding our Kitchen extractor we can, and did, assure you that the Extractor ceases at 10.00 along with the closer of our kitchens, although there are few other fans located at the rear of the hotel they should not provide substantial noise to disturb you for the room you was in, neither should the kitchen extractor when it is in use. Since your comments we have had our maintenance team inspect all fans and extractors to ensure they are running efficiently and quietly, we have also checked neighbouring rooms bathroom extract fans to see if this may have been the source of noise as Room 1 is quite a commonly used and requested room. I am reluctant to go into detail regarding the heating as your comment is quite vague and I am unsure as to what your issue with the heating was, all rooms do have a thermostat on the radiators so guests can alter the settings to adjust the heating to suit.
As the gentleman on shift received your comments as comments whilst departing and of quite a concise nature he was of the opinion that you were unreceptive to a conversion regarding the matter and made the comments as a leaving statement, he assures me that he was keen to resolve any issues that had arisen but also needed to discuss the issues with you in greater detail and liaise with the maintenance team to do so.
We apologise that any noise may have affected your stay with us and upon inspection there doesn’t seem to any further issues with noise, we have used the room since and have had positive feedback so we would again apologise and see this as an isolated incident but again are regretful that you did not enjoy this visit to us. I would also urge you to elaborate on positive experiences as well as negative, although guests are free to express their views on experiences they wish I am disappointed that an isolated incident has clouded such a well received evening dinner function, as you stated briefly you had a pleasant evening along with positive past stays in the hotel. We host the function yearly and are honoured to do so, we have booked next years date with great pleasure and look forward to delivering another quality meal, we hope this experience does not alter your view of us here at the Appleby Inn and assure you of a warm welcome should you return next year.

We stayed for 2 nights in September in a spacious family room on the ground floor. This place is very accessible just off the motorway but secluded enough to give a great rural feel. Check in was quick and staff where very welcoming. The room itself was located on the ground floor with outside access, the beds comfortable and the room very spacious for three adults with all facilities you could need. TV was a little on the small side and hard to view from the far end of the room although on holidays the TV is not a big priority. Plenty of parking to be had which made our room even more accessible with our luggage. The restaurant had an ample menu and the food was very nice pub food. Service in the restaurant was very good, prompt and with a smile most of the time. The Inn was in a good location for what we wanted which was access to the villages around from Netherseal to Overseal and into Ashby for our very own version of "Who do you think you are..." Would recommend this to any other relatives uncovering their roots.

Thank you for such a positive review of your time with us here at the Appleby Inn.
Cleanliness is a major priority of ours and continuous feedback of a spotlessly clean hotel and restaurant is a glowing compliment to our housekeeping staff who pride themselves on presenting a welcoming homely bedroom for guests.
A choice of cooked breakfasts, fruits, cereals to suit all our guests delivered fresh to your table is what awaits all our guests in the morning of their stay, we are glad you and your daughter enjoyed your Full English breakfasts.
Immediate plans to return to the Appleby Inn Hotel speaks volumes for us as a company and we already look forward to hosting you for what we aim to make a Happy Birthday for you!

Just got back from an overnight stay at the Appleby Inn and was very happy with our experience. Had adjoining rooms for the wie, two boys and me, which were nice and quiet. Had meals at the hotel in the night which were great, staff couldn't do enough for you and were happy in their work. Been to other hotels in the past where staff appear to resent you being there. This one though was a joy. Book out in the morning wasn't until twelve but we extended for an hour as the wife was there to do a run and we needed the shower after. We also had Sunday lunch as we were there, wonderful carvery which the young chef had cooked and presented. This was excellent but we were the only people there! They really do need to advertise this place better as it is just off the motorway, although you wouldn't know it and the food and staff are superb. I would highly recommend.

Hello and thank you for your review of your stay with us here at the Appleby Inn Hotel.
Your comments are received with great pleasure. We aim to provide maximum comfort whilst away from home at a competitive price and we are glad that we could accommodate you and your family in this manner.
Our enthusiastic, friendly team of staff reflect us brilliant as a company. We are a proudly independent family run hotel and restaurant and pride ourselves on the personal touch we provide. Creating such a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere is a credit to all the staff and the owner and also reflects in their approach.
Late check outs at no extra costs when we can facilitate are welcome amenities to guests for varying reasons. We try to be accommodating and as helpful we can be to reflect the nature of your stay. I am sure a shower and a good meal was certainly what your wife required after her run!
Our restaurant is another vital arm of our business. We have built a fine reputation for high quality meals at affordable prices. A restaurant of this kind at your pleasure whilst staying with us gives you a welcome option in dining.
On the weekend you came to visit us our occupancy was not as high as usual, our main occupancy comes Monday to Friday and then a weekend will be dependent on private hire functions held with ourselves or even locally when we offer preferred accommodation for many local businesses and tourist attractions.
We are very pleased you were so satisfied with your stay and if you return to the area and require accommodation we would be more than happy to welcome you back to the Appleby Inn Hotel.
