Guy's Thatched Hamlet
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Bilsborrow
Reviewed 1 July 2015

Stayed here for four nights in this quirky but thoroughly delightful hotel the rooms are situated in blocks of thatched cottages by the canal . Either overlooking gardens or the canal. Really interesting location suitable for both an overnight or longer stays. Rooms well appointed with one of the most comfortable super kingsize beds we have slept in a hotel, The food in the italian restaurant is excellent with a wonderful selection and a daily changing specials menu offering wonderful seafood . Staff are friendly and efficient.Breakfast excellent using high quality produce.Will definitely stay here again.

I have stayed in all of the different types of room but definitely think it's work paying extra for the deluxe executive room with en suite bathroom, large spa bath and TV, bed was very comfy and room nice and clean, really enjoyed our dinner and evening meals in both owed nells tavern and the restaurant but been disappointed with the breakfast each time, buffet style served on a small dresser, not topped up regularly, nearly broke a tooth on the black pudding we now go to Barton grange for a lovely breakfast if we stay here

Room Tip: Worth getting the deluxe executive room but think there is only seven of them so best to book early...

Went with our friends and our dog for drinks and food all I can say is fantastic food. We have been a few times for just drinks and it's always been lovely there is a great atmosphere and always seems to be busy. The food seems to be freshly prepared and didn't take that long to arrive either will be going back again very soon.

We stayed on the Sunday saver for my daughters 30th birthday, fantastic value, we booked 3 rooms which were so spacious, clean and comfortable with lovely views of the canal side marina, we ate in the restaurant and the food, service and ambience were second to none, and very reasonably priced (especially with the £20 per room voucher off the bill) breakfast was included in the Sunday saver price also and that was delicious and great choice of hot or cold buffet, we all said we will visit again very soon.

Did i miss the point here? Me, the hubby & two pre-teens took my fun-lovin' mum who came to nights out here years ago & loved it. Her face was a picture! we've roughed it plenty but this place was quite awful, the once quaint fake frontage of the alleys displayed weeds poking through facades, holes in the thatch, broken windows, rotting timbers & fading signage. It can't be due to shortage of money, as we strolled past the smoking shed, the heater was on full blast in the middle of a lovely sunny day. Once inside Owd Nell's we were stared at in bewilderment for asking about morning coffee & the possibility of a table while we drank it. Every table had 8-10 reserved signs on in case you missed the first 7. Coffees served-actually very good- 3 staff chatting behind the bar who could all have easily found cleaning or replenishing to do but instead carried on chatting while they all chipped in to serve me. 2 of our group played pool, 1 played the hoop game-lots of fun- the last 2 hovvered. The place was starting to fill up for Sunday lunches by the time we used the loos-ladies old fashioned cute & reasonably clean but apparantly the same can't be said for the gent's. What could have been a delightful stroll along the canal was ruined by thoughtless dog owners who don't clean up & as the path is narrow you need to step off it to let prams etc pass... at your peril. All i can say is the food must be good as people were flocking here as we left, all dressed up too like it was a special occasion...bizarre. The menu stated too many "Guys famous... what-evers" for my taste. Famous where exactly?

Room Tip: if you still want to go, book a table, loads of others do!

We visited last year and had to come back, the staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and tidy, the bed oh my gosh are so comfortable. What can I say about the food, Beautiful very tasty. And sticky toffee pudding is to die for.
