“Beautiful Old Building & a Great Nights Sleep”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

I was in town for the rather dull task of renewing my passport in an emergency and needed somewhere to stay. I paid little attention to the hotel I booked (through a last minute booking site) and headed off for the night away from London.

On arrival I realized very quickly just how nice a place I had stumbled upon.

It is an old staging house (I think!) but is clearly very well looked after and is immediately welcoming and architecturally beautiful. Almost like an old stately home or castle.

The staff on arrival were incredibly helpful and made me feel very welcome, I was even upgraded to a bigger room as it was a quiet night in the hotel.

The food was lovely, I ate in the restaurant area downstairs. Kind of a gourmet pup food fusion... very good food and very good portions!

I didn't get to see any of Peterborough, but should you be planning a trip there I would heartily recommend The Bull.

10 out of 10

Room Tip: I was on the first floor overlooking the street, but it was perfectly quiet all night.

Stayed in Peterborough for a relaxing/romantic weekend. We got more than we expected for our money at the Bull Hotel. The experience was very enjoyable. The hotel is very clean and quiet and the staff is phenomenal. Very friendly, the restaurant has amazing food with a very romantic atmosphere but without the high prices. Highly recommend this hotel!

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.
