“Weekend away”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Very nice hotel in a central location for shopping, pubs and restaurants. The room was very spacious and comfortable with en suite facilities, tea and coffee making, very good hair dryer as in some hotels the hair dryers have been poor, it was very warm with easy to use controls, tv and an iron so short of nothing. Staff very pleasant and helpful. We had a three course meal both Friday and Saturday, Fridays meal was disappointing I ordered medium rare steak which when it arrived was cold I sent it back although it was warmer it was now well done and tasted of a burnt griddle so very disappointed with that. Breakfast was very good with a choice of cereal fruit juice and full English. The only problem with staying in one of the rooms on the front of the hotel it was rather noisy on the Saturday night till the early hours., only tip is ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

Room Tip: A room at the back

Excellent,clean,comfortable room had all that was needed for an overnight stay plenty of hot water and lovely hot fluffy towels breakfast more than adequate with all types of fruit, juices,cereal and full English.
One suggestion is that there should be a pillow menu as the pillows where rather hard. But a part from that the whole place met expectations and I would consider going there more often as it's an excellent venue and worth a stay if you visiting the area

A lovely evening, the room was spotless we had chocolates and rose petals on bed, the room was lovely and warm. The evening meal was amazing, we really enjoyed it, I am a fussy eater and they did me chicken breast for main meal, In the background there was a lady singing and a man on the keyboard who were great, a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

As it was our wedding anniversary, we decided to take advantage of the Valentines Day package of a special 3 course meal and an night in Executive room, followed by a full English breakfast.
We arrived in the afternoon and were delighted with the quality of our room, with rose petals on the bed and chocolates too! After coffee we took advantage of the Queensgate shopping Centre that is only yards from the hotel. The entire hotel is beautiful, with cosy corners, old paintings, huge mirrors, plush carpet and friendly service.
The dining room was decked in red heart balloons and lots of heart confetti on the candlelit tables. The meal was amazing and there was live music that added to the whole relaxed ambiance.
The room had it's own air conditioning, and was not noisy at night. The shower was easy to use and was great. The full English breakfast was lovely with plenty to eat. We both enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for an executive room.

Good location & car parking (used the post code to find the car park, as suggested on the website.) Very good evening meal & breakfast & all the staff were friendly & smiley. Good value for money. Only criticism was that the bathroom smelt of wee especially round the loo; the flooring looked as if it needed a good scrub!

helen642192,
Thank you for your review, I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were happy with the quality of food at both breakfast and dinner, and that the staff were helpful and as you put it, "smiley". Great to hear.
I am however a little concerned that the bathroom cleanliness on this occasion did not meet our normal high standard of cleanliness, this is a very rare deviation , and you can be sure that I will ensure that we pay closer attention to this matter in the future. I really do regret your not bringing this matter to our attention at the time enabling us to put this right before your departure.
I do hope that this will not deter you from staying with us on some future occasion.

Kind regards,
Alan Price

A tad pricey for what it is, but the rooms are clean,the staff friendly and the fish and chips excellent! Their practice of taking the payment as you check in isn't good - sends the wrong message. Just take a swipe and let folks settle up at check out.
The wifi is a bit dodgy, but the ISDN connections are great.................................................................................................ll.ll.ll..........."...............

Dear jules M,
Thanks for your review, I am delighted that you enjoyed your fish and chips.
The practice of taking a preauthorization on your method of payment is fairly standard in the hotel industry throughout the world. It enable us to ensure payment is made, and the method of payment is genuine, as well as most importantly, reduces the inconvenience or any unpleasantness for our departing guests.
I do hope that this will not deter you from visiting us again very soon.

Kind regards,
Alan Price

I stayed here for a night on business, I normally gravitate towards Premier Inn, on this occasion I am glad that I didn’t.

The Bull is in the centre of town, very convenient for the evening. The room I had was extremely comfortable, very clean, quiet – I had a great nights sleep. There were a dozen or so pillows on the bed to choose from.

The car park was a little difficult to find, however parking was included in the price, and I could leave the car there all day.

In all, better value than the Premier Inn – which in my experience is very difficult to find.
