Waverley Hotel

Reviewed 2 June 2014

I have eaten at this hotel with my Husband many times and can honestly say I've never been disappointed. The menu has a wide choice and the potion size good.

This year I had a 10 year celebration for two members of staff and approached The Hotel to see if they could do something a little bit different.
What they did was amazing. We had a personalised menu, welcome cocktails named after the girls I work with and the room was decorated beautifully. Was a great night!

This is a family run hotel which offers a friendly and welcoming service.
Highly recommended for food and to stay. Or if your a local pop in for a cheeky one :)

The hotel was very accommodating regarding our request to check in early and the staff were friendly. The room was large and clean, however, we could smell food cooking in the bathroom, presumably from the kitchen below. The bed was huge and quite comfortable although, there were a few loose springs. Drinks were reasonably priced and food was nice. I couldn't comment on breakfast as it was served far too early for us therefore we missed out. On bank holiday it was 7am-9am, which, in my opinion, is too early. Parking is a nightmare and when we enquired, we were told to park outside, but it's a disc zone so the car had to be moved at 8:30am. We would have much preferred to pay for a nearby car park. There were also renovations taking place somewhere near by so loud drilling woke us. Ovderall, friendly staff, clean rooms but not worth £70 per night.

Thank you for your review we are pleased that overall you enjoyed your stay. We have noted your remarks regarding breakfast times on bank holidays and have now altered our timing to match those of the weekend and now serve until 10.00am. We regret you were disturbed by nearby building work which unfortunately we cannot control.

I have stayed at this hotel on a few occasions in the last 12 months. The staff are friendly, the rooms are always clean & tidy & the food is great with generous portions. Some of the other comments are unworthy of this hotel as it is reasonably priced & a great atmosphere.

Myself and two workmates stayed here last week, and would definateley stay again, the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was great and very reasonably priced ( i would recomend the three course meal for £10.25 ) a bargain and presentation and taste for each course was wonderful. The room we had was a triple and was plenty big enough for the three of us the bathroom was very spacious and spotless. I will be recommending it to all work colleagues.

We stayed last weekend for the one night. Staff were very good. Bedroom had everything you might need. However, the breakfast was honestly one of the best we have ever had. It was a buffet style with plenty of choice and used quality produce. The sausages were excellent, fried eggs just right and the bacon lean and thick!

Room Tip: We had a suite at the top of the Hotel-plenty of room

Just back from a great weekend at this hotel and couldnt fault a thing.Some of the bigger chains should send their staff here to learn a few things about fantastic customer service.

Were to start, great friendly staff, well stocked bar, ( open late) with residents discount, spotless large and airy room, good food at reasonable prices, and a great buffet breakfast with real butchers sausages and bacon, the very thing to set you up for the day.

We were on a groupon deal using this as a base for spending the Sat at the Lakes, and after a day out in the fresh air it was magic just to walk down to have dinner in the bistro area of the bar. ( you can also eat in the restauarant.

The hotel is just off the main shopping area, and really couldn't fault a thing, The also do a set eve menu for £10 for 3 courses and while my wife and I had the steaks, (cooked to perfection) I was glad I didn't take the set dinner as I would still be trying to finish it today such was the portions.

Will def be staying here again next time I am in the area, ( best pint of Guinness in town)
