“Wedding celebration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

Decided at the last minute to stay over when celebrating a friends' son's wedding. Efficient booking, nice room, good breakfast. The buffet for the wedding evening reception was wonderful. Only downside is that some of the rooms are rather a trek to get too.

Dear Sprogsitter,

Thank for your recent feedback on the Bull Hotel.

I am thrilled to hear that you had an enjoyable stay while attending a wedding celebration hosted at the hotel.

I am particularly pleased to hear that you found our reservations department efficient whilst booking with us. I will be sure to pass your comments to the team.

Stayed here for one night to take a breather after Christmas ! What a lovely hotel ! The reception staff were charming and very welcoming when we checked in. Our room was perfect - the shower was to die for ! and the bed was absolutely wonderful. We didn't have dinner, but had drinks before going elsewhere to dine. The staff in the bar lounge were very attentive. Breakfast was excellent, with a great choice for all tastes. All in all a lovely, relaxing night away. We will be returning !

My company used this venue last year and the food was brilliant, this year we all agreed was a resounding disaster,between my table we had the pate and soup tasted, the pate you could have got nicer prepacked in Tesco,the soup was delicious,Main course the samon was left by all after a couple of forkfuls,the Turkey was dry, the Roasted potatoes tasted as if they had been heated several times, the brussels were almost black where they had stood too long, the pigin blankets were cheap sausage not good, the chocolate tart came with no cream so you just had a very a sweet chocolate after a couple of spoonfuls was again mainly left, the cheese cake was ok but edible,the staff were brilliant cheerful, helpful the only saving grace for the hotel ,I have had better food at a road side ,I wasnt paying for it thank goodness my boss was ,hopefully we dont use the same place next year

Dear susan k,

Thank you for your feedback and I do apologise we did not live up to our usual excellent standards we receive praise for.

I am sorry the quality of your dinner was poor. I am however very surprised as we have received very positive feedback from our Christmas parties over the past few weeks. All our meals are prepared freshly on the day, and we do source a high quality produce. Had we been notified during your dining experience, we would have definitely tried to rectify it for you.

Thank you for your positive comments about our staff ‘s brilliant, cheerful, and helpful service. I will definitely pass your comments onto our team.

Please do get in touch with me, should you wish to discuss your review in further detail.


Kind regards,
Karl Wilson

arrived at the Bull Hotel, on arrival was given Pomongrate juice with white wine, fantastic.Our party of 15 had two large tables,and there was other tables as well. The tables had loads of party poppers,crackers,hats to wear.
The food was hot and tasty,especially the cheesecake which was devine,
The Dj was ok, played some good music,but a lot of the music which she played for was for the younger generation, and most of the people there were between 40 and 60..We stayed the night there and the bedroom although the heating was on full blast,we could turn it down or open the windows.Plenty of tea and coffee,also a kettle which was good. A large tv sat on the dressing table.Bathroom and shower were spotless.Breakfast this morning was excellent. Help yourself buffett, from cerals,fruit juice,cooked breakfast,toast, different cheeses, different breads. First class service.

Dear whitespirit13,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Bull Hotel.

I am happy to hear that our festive treats were well enjoyed, and you and your colleagues had a memorable Christmas party.

We have taken your comments on board with regard to the choice of music, as we do try and cater for all age groups that attend the festivities.

Thank you for mentioning our breakfast selection, we have recently changed our offering, and I am glad that it has been well-received.
Our Jack Shrimpton Bar offers an informal dining experience where you can enjoy our traditional Fresh Fish battered in Rebellion beer in front of a hearty open fire.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Season’s Greetings

Dear nicola p,

Thank you for your recent review of the Bull Hotel.

I am pleased to hear that you have found our reception team excellent and enjoyed our breakfast offering. When we do host private functions and weddings we always try our utmost to ensure that guests are not affected. On your next visit, why not join us for a delicious Sunday Roast while listening to the classic jazz tunes from the Rat Pack, Ella Fitzgerald and other famous artists, performed by the Nigel Fox Trio from 12.00 until 14.30 in the afternoon.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Booked into the hotel for an overnight stay following a party in one of the event rooms. The reception staff when arriving and leaving were excellent, welcoming and helpful. I found the room a bit dark and it was cold when we first got in there but it warmed up after about an hour or so.

We arrived at about 3pm and found a few service trolleys still in the corridors which made it a bit awkward getting luggage through. We were on the ground floor and found the door through to reception difficult to navigate due to the ramp which appears to be a permanent fixture to enable the service trolleys access.

The food and service at the party was very good and the meal was tasty. A small niggle was that all the meat eaters on the table were served before the 2 vege meals which left the other table guests waiting before they felt able to start their meal while it was hot.

There was a good variety at breakfast and the hot selection was replenished constantly so nothing looked dried out.

This is our third visit to the Bull Hotel and we will return when time allows.

Stayed here for 4 nights in September with my girlfriend and it was a lovely experience, the staff were extremely helpful, rooms were clean and to a high standard, although we never ate in the main restaurant we had a meal in the bar the night we arrived and it was gorgeous, very close to m40 and easy to find, we went to Harry potter world and it was only a 20 min drive, and I would definitely stay again!

Dear Elliot G

Thank you for your positive review of The Bull Hotel. I am pleased to hear that you and your girlfriend had a lovely experience. I will pass your positive comments onto our team members, who will certainly be as pleased as I am.

We do pride ourselves in ensuring that our rooms are cleaned to a high standard.
I am glad that you mentioned our close proximity to the M40. We are also only a mere 20 minute train ride from Wembley Stadium and 30 minutes to London, should you need to watch the latest football match or theatre production!

I hope that on your next visit that you will dine in our Beeches restaurant as we have made some changes to our menu offering.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future.

Kind Regards
