Started with the EFL receptionist not hearing my surname and trying to book us in ...but she had already booked someone in as us and so we were upgraded.....result. Our room overlooked the car park but this wasnt a problem . recently upgraded room I would say . Lovely bathroom with complex shower system. Only niggle I didnt find the make up mirror. Informed reception on checkout ( we were onlt there one night ) and they said would sort it. We were attending a function at the htel. I had emailed to say I was gluten intolerent. Starter came with g free bread. MAin was adapted and good. Pudding mediocre ( the official was profiteroles...I had meringue with a poor ice cream ). Breakfast was very busy and we had to queue to enter dining room as a lot of groupon clients . Lots of choice of fruit etc. When I went to hot buffet ordered poached eggs and gluten free toast. Must have been a bit of mix up as got 2 lots of toast and eggs after abit of wait....bacon had gone cold. Very obliging gut on reception on exit....ask for car park ticket and you dont have to pay....

Room Tip: Agree with all other comments. They are building next door . We werent troubled as Saturda and we were at function in function room

Dear Mathsbaker,

Thank you for posting your review of the Majestic Hotel and really pleased that we dealt with your dietary requirements well.

It did tickle me that the the queue for breakfast was because we had a lot of groupon clients ! Surely its just many other guests have a leisurely breakfast at the same time.

Glad you had a good stay and hope to welcome you back soon.

Kind regards, Vince

myself and partner stayed two nights on a business convention and enjoyed our stay. the massive building was old, and shabby in places but beautiful and the rooms were large and well equipped. the staff were hardworking and pleasant, and the breakfast was great. the only reason i haven't given a five is that the whole building was hot enough to grow tomatoes, which nearly saw off some of the older guests at the dinner dance.

Thank jason f

Dear Jason f,

Thank you for posting your review of the Majestic Hotel. I'm very grateful for your 4 star rating and sorry that it was a little hot for you.

It is very difficult as Winter approaches as the temperatures have remained milder than usual without the morning frosts we would normally expect. I'd always rather be too warm than too cold though we are due to be at freezing tomorrow !

Kind regards, Vince

Hotel not bad looking but service leaves a lot to be desired!!! No soap in room to wash hands yet asking it did not arrive! Shower head dreadful and needs replacing!!! Works Christmas party supposedly drinks reception yet we never received ours despite telling 2 members of staff who were rather abrupt and walked away!!! Not impressed with the service at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a magnificent building; grand and imposing. I got to my room (405) and sank into the comfort of it. Lots of space and considerate touches - bottle of water, lovely toiletries. No noise - bliss!

She's a little frayed at the edges but nonetheless there's a charming degree of opulence like the sweeping staircase, deep carpeting, chandeliers and general décor.

The room book about the hotel dates from 2000 and is outdated/old-fashioned in it's tone and celebration of celebrities from the seventies: Bucks Fizz, Freddie Starr - really?! There are clear opportunities to revise and modernise the way the hotel and management presents itself. Some hotels provide a couple of glossy magazines for both sexes; I saw plenty of younger guests staying here on shopping trips.

It's only a short walk/taxi trip from the town which is beautiful and the nighttime Christmas decorations with lights in all the trees is a magical sight.

I didn't have an evening meal here but breakfast was good in a surprisingly very busy restaurant at 10a.m. I had a good swim in the smallish pool. A little smartening-up needed.

It appears popular with people on 'group on' vouchers so is a busy place. Great customer service and I can definitely recommend.

Overall this is a lovely building to stay in and my room was a fantastic size. The whole hotel is just very tired and in need of new beds, bedding, bathrooms and heating. Also beware you will be charged for parking at the hotel even when paying for a room!
Having said that the staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was fantastic.
