Reviewed 29 August 2011

I booked this hotel after seeing it booking.com. It had a user rating of 9.3 so I was really looking forward to my stay.

The only really positive thing I have to say about the hotel is that the location was very good and the rooms were clean.

Upon arriving at the hotel we discovered that parking was very limited. We had to drive up and down the street until a space eventually became available.

We tried to check in to our room at approx 6pm and the double room we requested wasn't available. So we had to make do with a twin room.

There was nothing majorly wrong with the room it was just Very basic. The 'flatscreen' tv was about the size of a postage stamp.

The communal areas were very dated. The ceiling in the library looked like it could cave in and
needed some work doing

I thought that the breakfast might
be the saving grace, but unfortunately not. Had to wait ages for any service, there were no menus so choice was limited to a full English. The breakfast itself was awful. The sausage and bacon was very hard and I'd guess they had been cooked hours before and just warmed up. They had also ran out of bread for toasting and this wasn't replaced whilst we were in the breakfast area.

All in all it's very basic, and for the price you could probably get a better quality place

I was hoping that the breakfast would

Only stayed in the hotel for a couple of nights, but I can honestly say that I would certainly recommend it to any family that wants a little more than a 'pokey' B&B.
Obviously there has been a change of owners since the last reports because we could not fault the facilities or cleanliness of the hotel. Nothing was ever too much trouble for any of the staff, who were all very smart and friendly.............especially the receptionist :-)
Looking at some of the prices for hotels around the area, the Waverley Hotel was a little more expensive......but well worth the extra from the stories I heard from other guests who had transferred there. Thank you Waverley xxx
