IF this establishment wants to improve it's ocupancy levels and be competitive it will have to up it's game by putting the guests first, provide better value for money and not rely on it's park-like location & exisiting ever-returning loyal senior guests.
Meal time serving windows of 75 minutes for breakfast and a mere one hour for dinner, whilst no doubt is convenient for the management and staff, is very inflexible for guests, During our stay a fellow guest complained that by eating dinner late, tables were being set for breakast at all around them and the cheese board was not available. The coffee dispenser is removed from the dining room moments after the last diner has served themsleves and the empty coffee cups just as quickly collected so that staff can go home and the hotel effectively shut up shop for the night.
For a 2 star hotel the food is 3 star and excellent with a good choice, delivered to your table very quickly and with immense politeness. You have just enought time to catch your breath between courses.
The bedrooms are generally far more austere than the website or the tired photographs in the entrance display board would have you believe. Bathrooms are immaculate though.
But for £73/£88 per person per night it's too much - there are 3 star hotels not far away that charge near enough this, and even offer better deals than a night free when booking 3 nights. Even older people Google search and are more price savy these days!
Hunters Moon closes in January then charges £71 per night D B & B in February - compared with a local 3 star that charges £49 D B & B for a minimum of 2 nights.
Peaceful pleasant and very middle class Ye Olde English which is lovely but the world has moved on and to survive so must the Hunters Moon, not so much as to spoil the ambience but to
remain viable and competitive.
