I very rarely return to a hotel twice. Why would I want to when there are so many to experience? However, I now have to make the exception. The Roundthorn was far beyond my expectations in every way. Staying at the hotel was a treat for myself and daughter as part of a spa day at a nearby location. From the offset the car park is great and free! The bedrooms are large and the facilities so clean. The beds comfortable and warm. The breakfast was 6*. As the Hotel is up quite high on a hill I asked the mananagement if the roads were maintained with grit in bad weather. They assured me that there were so as to ensure safe passage for guests. The Hotel provides bar snacks as a service but doesn't have a restaurant on site. The friendly reception staff recommended a local pub for late night food called The Cross Keys Inn. Without a doubt, this proved to be an absolute excellent recommendation. My room had a kitchen. It was hidden away so found it by surprise. Please don't tell everyone though about Roundthorn as this is my secret hidden gem up on a hill with panoramic views. This fusspot who isn't easily pleased with accommodation, definately concludes ' i'll be back' !
