“Slept like a baby!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

The most important for me when it comes to hotels is how I sleep. At Bishops in I slept like a baby, even though the bed was a little too soft. Ordinary breakfast, the soft boiled egg was always soft. The hotel is located next to the central station. The bar downstairs can be noisy, specially the outdoor place..

Stayed for four nights while on business. Great location. Straight across from the railway station, but never once heard a train although I did had a room at the rear. Tea and coffee in room. No phone in room. Food was excellent. Far better than normal "pub grub" Over 300 beers and same for whiskeys. Good job I was working! Very friendly attentive staff. Rooms very clean and comfortable. My room had thermostats on both radiators. Water pressure good and a great shower.Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

The fact that you can only get in and check in after 4pm is the only negative thing about it though. Having said that I did manage to get in and was given a room earlier.

Hotel is comfortable, no temperature control in the room. The en-suite had a shower cubicle, which is very small. Water pressure is very low.
Bar is excellent if you like your liquor. layout is odd. The bar is in the middle in the ground floor, between breakfast room and rooms. in the morning if your room is on the ground floor, you have to go up the stairs across the passge (to bypass the bar), and down again. Same journey back to the room. There is no lift.
Location wise it is directly opposite Kristianstad central station.

Room Tip: avoid ground floor rooms.

Hotel in conjunction with fabulous English styled pub/restaurant, serving great food. It feels however, that this is a restaurant with a hotel rather than a hotel with a restaurant. The exterior isn't very hotel looking and there is no reception as such but instead you check in in the pub bit. Breakfast great with good choice and a very pleasant member of staff. The church bells opposite our window started at 8am and went on for 5-10 minutes which was obviously out of the hotel's control but ruined my much needed lie in. Would book again.

I stayed for 5 nights on business. The hotel is directly across from the train station so you can't miss it. But don't be put off as there is no noise from the trains. The hotel has a great bar built on an english style pub, so for me I felt at home! The staff I have to say are exceptional, very friendly, welcoming and eager to ensure you have a great stay. The rooms are a good size, clean and modern, however for me the beds were a little soft. Breakfast has a good choice. The bar has some excellent ales and a small hearty menu of typical english dishes, Fish & Chips etc. I asked to change rooms after two nights as I was first put in a room at the top of the stairs and the constant door banging was annoying. They were happy to do this for me. Accordingly, avoid rooms 218 and 220. A good hotel with top staff, definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 218 and 220. Ask for 200 - 209 which are at the back and away from the stairs.

Stayed 2 nights B&B.
Checked with the hotel before I went so wasn't dissapointed as there isn't a pool/fitness centre (it says it has on the trip advisor filter)
The room was clean and tidy, Hotel is directly opposite the train station but you can't hear it even though I had a room facing that way.
Staff were friendly & helpfull.
We didn't eat in the hotel, other than the breakfast, but the evening meals looked good.
