“Family Night Stay”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

We loved the restaurant - excellent food and lovely waitress. The beds were very comfortable and the gardens were very pretty. The rooms are tired - but are very clean. Will definately come back here.

I've just spent a wonderful weekend at the Bobsleigh Hotel with several friends. Our room may have been old and in need of refurbishment but it was clean, well maintained and what it may have lacked in those areas was most certainly made up for by the wonderful staff who work there. They were welcoming from the onset and nothing was too much trouble, something which I value when travelling and which many 'higher class' hotels still aspire to.
I thought it was very good value for money would definately stay again.

Yes I agree the rooms are tired looking but the friendliness of the staff more than compensates for this, and the food was of very good quality. Would certainly stay here again.

Having read the reviews after making a group booking I was slightly apprehensive about our stay at the Bobsleigh. I should not have worried. From receiving a very warm welcome to checking out 3 days later we received excellent service from all of the staff, especially Paulina, Jana, Peter and Amy who could not do enough to ensure that all out needs were met.

My room was large, comfortable, clean and well-equipped and well maintained, and although some areas of the hotel are in need of updating, the Acacia Suite was beautifully appointed, the bar comfortable and the gardens well kept.

The food was well-cooked, tasty, plentiful and served on time.

The consensus of our group was that the Bobsleigh offers fantastic service and value for money, and we look forward to returning soon.

Stayed for 3 nights, staff are friendly, room is not briliant, telly must be 100 years old & did not work properly. Didn't eat there so dont no about the food. You have to pay to use wi-fi, £6 for 90 minuets, what a rip of in this day & age.

I made last minute booking for NYE and only afterwards saw what other people said about this hotel. Been quite concerned about going there but...

Only after arrival I realised that AA marked it with 3 starts and, considering this, it was very good hotel and overall stay.

It’s true that rooms are in urgent need of makeover. On the other hand there’s so few hotels in UK that don’t need anything to be done with them, that this should not be a reason to complain.
Four Poster Bed Suite I booked was spacious comfortable and decently cleaned. There was space to sit and relax, Jacuzzi bath was definitely a plus and room contained everything you need in a hotel room for one night. It’s true that choice of tv channels is poor (and tv set itself remembers Margaret Teacher probably) but we did not go there to watch telly.

Breakfast was very good. Nicely presented, definitely cooked and with good quality products on the plate. We did not have to wait for our order log either. Toast’s could have been hot when brought to our table though.

What this hotel is lacking in some areas is most definitely compensated by staff working there. We felt welcomed right from the start, recognised by name by receptionists during the stay, everybody extremely polite and friendly and all requests we had were met in timely manner. Atmosphere staff creates around their guest is rarely seen in other hotels.

Would not hesitate to call them again and book if in area.
