Park Inn by Radisson Peterborough
Ranked #11 of 27 Hotels in Peterborough
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Stayed over on a Saturday night. Room was booked as a double but the beds were two singles pushed together.

Positives:
Very clean both bathroom & bedroom
Air conditioned
Tea/Coffee making
Car parking free until 12:30pm on day of check out for guests
Comfy beds - great sleep
Quiet (we were on 2nd floor, roadside)
Bright, well lit bedroom area
Good blackout curtains
Hotel staff were extremely friendly - I called reception to ask for a sewing kit and one was brought to the room straight away.
Reception were also happy to arrange taxis for us.

Negatives:
Room was one with a (locked) door to the adjoining room and we could hear our 'neighbours' talking when we checked in. When we returned though and in the morning, there was no problem.
The front of the digital safe was completely broken and therefore un-usable.
Coffee slatters up the white wall - not sure how the cleaner missed it as everything else was spotless!
One of the main bathroom lights out - no natural light so made it a bit dark when getting ready
TV automatically started up at 9am - unplug if you want a lie in!

We didn't go for the breakfast as it was £12 - the city centre is a 2 min walk up the road so no need to pay so much.

All in all, very much enjoyed this stay - the negatives were only minor. Have stayed in other Park Inns, generally receive very good value for money. Would stay here again and will definately be paying that little bit more to stay in Park Inns in the future.

Room cost us £40 on an advanced online rate.

Room Tip: Most rooms are standard, we stayed on the 2nd floor roadside and it was quiet.

Often stay here. It's acceptable. Free wifi is a bonus. No real atmosphere, and the lounge and bar are a bit plasticky.
Easy walk into city centre though.
Breakfast is standard buffet job, nothing to shout about but no worse than anywhere else.
Toaster was broken, which was a bonus because the staff were doing the toasting instead of the usual situation where you have to do your own.
Poached eggs were overlooked, but just about edible.

Dear Guest,

Thanks for the feedback; sorry the hotel is not quite to your liking. The continental open plan of the ground floor is not to everyone’s taste and seems expansive when the hotel is quiet. I note you stay on a regular basis and whilst I can’t do a lot about the fixtures & fittings, if there is any way we can make your stay more comfortable, please do not hesitate to ask even down to having your toast cooked for you in the morning. I am unable to select your profile on here but if you can let me know your name I will add a note to your profile so we are aware of any preferences prior to arrival. Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards,

Staying for 1night at a cost of £45 i wasn't expecting much. On arrival it was hectic and suddenly i was doubting my choice of hotel. However once checked in a and after finding my way to my room i was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't huge and then view was a car park yet it was clean and welcoming. When you're only sleeping in it what more do you want? Suddenly however it got very noisy with the room next door, faced with what i thought would be a sleepless night with a 4 hour journey the next day i went to reception to ask for another room. No rooms available however they offered a solution should it be noisy at bed time. Thankfully it wasn't. The Hotel carpark is very small with only a few spaces and 4 disabled spaces. These were being used by cars not displaying a blue badge. This was most infuriating however i have since been advised the hotel could have found alternative car parking or tried to rectify this. So should it happen, mention it.

I would stay here again should i return to the area. The staff are friendly, polite and will do what they can to help you.

Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your recent stay. I am glad you enjoyed the experience and your potential fears alleviated by the team. We do only have 52 car parking spaces for 115 bedrooms but with our proximity to the train station we very rarely experience any issues with parking but as you mentioned the staff will always try to find a resolve when the situation arises. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Best Regards,

Ray Keogh

As a result of a Groupon promotion stopped two nights in this excellent hotel - from initial contact by telephone to departure met with very helpful staff who ensured we had an experience to remember. The room was well prepared and nicely laid out with a king size bed and immaculate adjacent en suite. We had dinner on our first night which, as a result of a wedding celebration was served in one of the 'seminar rooms' - the service was excellent and the meal very good. The noise from the wedding party was indiscernible in our room on the third floor and by morning the restaurant had been cleared and we ate in comfort - again the meal was good.

Very happy to endorse this hotel to trip advisor users.

Spent the weekend at Park Inn with my boyfriend, and i have to say i was very impressed!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and always answered any questions we had.
The service was also very efficient. We had a 3 course meal, and 2 breakfasts during our stay - the food was excellent!
The hotel was very clean, tidy and well looked-after, with the shops only a 2 minute walk away which was perfect for us!
Overall would definitely recommend Park Inn! And definitely wouldn't hesitate to visit again!
The only thing i will say is that there was a private function on the Saturday night which we were not told about. - but on the whole, a very enjoyable stay!

We have just restructured our meeting, space to accommodate private functions/ Party up to 140 guests, which should eliminate such issues in the future.

We have stayed in several hotels in Peterborough and this is definately my favourite. The room was spacious and immaculate unlike a few of the well known hotels in the area. Staff were extremely helpful and very polite. The breakfast buffet was very very good with a large selection of food to choose from. The only improvements would be to have real eggs in the scrambled egg and we were alloacted an accessable room although we had booked a few weeks ago. This was no problem and the hotel was full but we were not told at the time of booking. Will definately be staying here again. Thank you for a great stay

Me and my girlfriend booked a meal at the Park Inn Restaurant on 26th June 2012 and must say it was some of the best service we have received when going out into the town centre. The menu choice was very good and the staff were happy, friendly and talkative.
The food was very generous in portion size and very tasty, drinks were reasonably priced and bar staff were polite and professional.
I would recommend this restaurant as a must when visiting Peterborough as you will go home full and feel you have had very good value for money.
