“Would have been very dissapointed had we paid full price.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2010

We stayed for three days.
Cons -
1. The lift was out of order for the whole stay (we were on the fourth floor)
2. House keeping trolleys and linen were left in the corridors the whole time.
3. We heard dogs in other rooms???
4. The staff were the rudest and most unpleasant hotel staff I have ever come across, mainly the dining and bar staff.
5. The food was basic and bland with limited choice, by the last night I couldn't face eating another carvery.
6. Dining room draughty.
7. Spa bath not worth the extra charge.
8. Bedroom not the cleanest, found long black hairs!
9. Sheets didn't fit the bed.
10. TV was very dated and only showed 5 channels. Not what you expect from a hotel these days.
There's more, but I wont be too picky!

Pros -
1. We didn't pay full price.
2. Spa treatments cheap and Spa staff very friendly and nice.
3. Nice grounds.
4. Erm??

Dinner service took forever - how can your table be first to get soup then last to get their main course. Then on New Years Eve all bars shut at 2am and we were all told that was it party over go to bed!

Both lifts didnt work and the staircases have not seen a hoover in a very long time.

Although we read the bad reviews, we were not prepared for just how dirty and unloved this hotel was. You would be hard pressed to find a corner that is dust-free. During our 3 day stay, carpets on the stairs, corridors and many other public areas were left dirty. The lovely tiled floor in the foyer was very grubby despite one attempt at cleaning it. Our Exec/spa room was dirty- badly scuffed bathroom floor, thick black hair on carpet by the bed, headboard on the floor, valance too small for size of bed, old furniture with just one easy chair . Thank goodness we were given a cleaner room. The dining room looked impressive but was very draughty, with tables so close together it was difficult to have an intimate dinner. The food varied from inedible to adequate. Likewise, the standard of service was at times rude and disinterested with the occasional smile and a few attempts to be helpful. After the carver dinner on the first evening, we made sure we ate a hearty lunch in town and bought snacks to keep us going. Spending time in the public lounges was unpleasant at times since many of the chairs were badly stained. Such a shame because the setting looked so lovely. So, if you don't mind dust, rundown furniture, poor service, very basic cuisine and the overall air of faded grandeur, then this hotel fits the bill. By the way, the hair we found in our room was probably dog hair!! We saw at least 4 of them during our stay. Not good if you have allergies and the carpet is not hoovered regularly.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2009

Stayed with a coach party on Saturday 5th December and everyone of our party was really impressed with the hotel. Upon arrival we were speedily and efficiently booked in. Our room was very spacious, clean and warm. The carvery meal was excellent from one of the best soups I have tasted to the luscious ham and turkey main meal with excellent vegetables and the choice of desserts. Then on to the bar area with coffee and tea to help ourselves. We had a great evening in the bar area and then on to relaxing night in our room. Sunday morning started with an excellent breakfast - one of the best I have had in hotels throughout the UK. Would loved to have had more time to investigate the pool and spa and explore the grounds of this hotel, but will definitely return. Wonderful hotel and great staff.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2009

after reading all the previous reviews after i had booked this hotel i was dreading staying here, but i really couldn't see what people complained about. We booked direct with Britannia website a executive spa room. whilst i wouldnt have said it was executive room it was very pleasant. It had clean neutral decoration with dark wood furniture, a big comfy bed and lovely clean bathroom.

The public areas are also very pleasant and I didn't see any signs of ripped carpets or shabby fittings. We also had breakfast, whilst we had to wait due to the amount of guest staying at the hotel, the breakfast room was lovely. There was a good variety of fresh hot and cold breakfast items.

The only reviews i would agree with were the staff were pretty miserable...apart from that we had a lovely stay

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2009

We stayed at the Royal Court Hotel for five nights in October. We went away for a relaxing break away from it all and we certainly got that. Ok the rooms could do with a bit of TLC but they are more than adequate, very large and very clean. The first room we were allocated had a broken bathroom door - I reported it to reception and they immediately moved us to a room across the corridor. No problems there. In addition we had a lovely huge jacuzzi bath, plenty big enough for two! The restaurant is lovely and the food plentiful and delicious. When I read the previous reviews I was under the impression that the evening meal was a carvery and nothing more - this was far from true! During the week we had trout, duck in orange sauce, baby chicken, lamb shanks, fillet steak......... It was always fresh, hot and cooked pertectly. Finally we made as much use of the leisure facilities as possible - swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Everywhere was clean and the staff were more than helpful.
Ignore the whingers who knock the Royal Court - we will certainly be back and after showing our photographs to friends they will also be visiting.
