Melton has a limited amount of hotels and I was looking for somewhere where I could host a meeting for a couple of hours in the evening. When I phoned the staff were very helpful and arranged a free meeting area for me on the basis that we were going to stay there.
On arrival the staff were very friendly and efficient - the meeting area was sorted out for me without having to ask and me and a colleague were checked in quickly and easily.
You can park right outside the hotel for an hour but the hotel has it's own big carpark located at the rear.
My room was warm and comfortable - a little noise from the main road but not enough to bother me. The bed was comfortable, good TV and a clean, basic bathroom. Had a nice hot shower in the morning, so no problems there.
The breakfast in the morning was good - had a traditional fry-up with coffee and orange juice.
In the evening I spoke to the owners and they mentioned some of the poorer reviews they have got.
Basically, yes this is a bar/hotel but at £50-60 for a night I thought it was good value. It's not necessarily a romantic break place (and you'd probably expect that at the price) but we were well looked after and had a good laugh talking to the staff.
The main bar in the hotel had a good selection - it had some lovely real ales and we tried a couple - top marks. We didn't eat at the restaurant but it looked like it had a good home cooked selection.
I stayed over on a Thursday night and there is a farmers market in the old Cattle Market on a Friday morning. The market had a really good range of meats and vegetables and the chance to stock-up on the town's famous Pork Pies and Stilton.
I would stay at the hotel again, based on the price, welcome and generally comfortable room. The free Wi-Fi beats a lot of the chain hotels.
Thanks guys for making us so welcome!
