We stayed at the Sidings Hotel on a 2 night break on 29th June 2014 .We had such an enjoyable stay , we were welcomed soon as we set foot through the door. Every member of staff was so friendly and attentive. We arrived early because we had been staying at another hotel for the night. We ordered a glass of wine each and it was presented in a nice wine glass, I am always fussy about my glass. Our room was soon ready for us, these are original train carriages ,i think from the 1950 s ,so the purpose is to get the feel and experience of sleeping on a train , something different and obviously there cannot be too many changes made because it would take away the true effect of this time period. A few updates are going to be made , some refurbishment , new curtains etc . My attitude is Rome was nt built in a day and things have to work as a plan ,as with any business to be cost affective. We do a lot of travel and every trip is varied to the type of accomodation and this is a train station with a train on each side of it , one being a restaurant ,which is delightful and the other being carriages for bedrooms, we were not expecting a 5 star suite ha ha. This is a feature hotel . One would not go to a five star hotel and expect to be in a train carriage, It is a case of common sense.
The hotel is in a beautiful location and we sat in the garden, it is great all the trains that come past. The food was amazing we dined on both nights and could not fault the food.. We had a lovely time. Bobby the manager is so friendly and we shared some good laughs . We met Sid the owner , again a really nice guy, they do all possible to make ones stay good. A different experience to stay at a train station hotel . Life should be varied. Also fabulous value.
