We enjoyed one very pleasant night in Briar Court Hotel even though our reason for staying in the area was not so pleasant. We were attending a family funeral nearby and booked one twin room and two single rooms for our party.
The rooms had obviously not long been refurbished and were fresh, clean and done to a very good standard. Although the rooms were quite small they were more than adequate for a short stay. All three rooms that we used were very acceptable.
The beds were very comfortable. Some of the best beds we have had in a hotel. The mattress, pillows and linen were of very good quality.
The bathroom was a good size with enough fluffy towels. I read in another review that the shower was not too good but we found it to be OK.
There was everything you could need in the bedroom including a good sized wall mounted TV, a hairdryer, a well stocked hospitality tray and even a trouser press. There was ample wardrobe and drawer space too.
The breakfast was very good. Can't think why anybody would find fault with it. There was plenty of fruit, cereal, pastries and juices. The tea was served in a pot and, yes, the coffee was served by the cup but the staff were quite quick to refill on request. The Full English Breakfast certainly was a challenge. They certainly don't skimp and it was good quality ingredients. We were well satisfied.
Our rooms did overlook the car park and the main road but then it would be difficult to have a view from a hotel in that vicinity. It was quite quiet at night even though we had a window open.
If we needed to stay in the area again we wouldn't hesitate to book in this hotel. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend it.
