I never have written a review before the end of my stay but on this occasion I am delighted to make an exception while my mind is fresh with so many praises for this place.
I learned that Mary "Queen of Scotts" actually stayed here the night before she was executed. The Hotel has heaps of history surrounding it which makes it that much more of a special place to stay for me. It would be great if you could include some historical information about the hotel in the guest information booklet as I'm sure many people would be fascinated by this.
My wife and I are staying here on a living social deal. Because my wife is a wheelchair user we asked for a room with a wheel in shower. We were given room 201 which is in the lodge and I have never been in a room so large and comfortable. It even has 2 bathrooms. One for wheelchair users and another large ordinary one which has both a bath and a shower and a seperate toilet too. The rooms are very cosy and are furnished to a very high standard. I would say more akin to 5 star standards. The rooms have a large TV and "quadriga" multimedia system with facilities for in room conferencing, Internet, Movies, Just about everything you could ask for. It even has a keyboard for surfing the internet.
We dined in the dining room on both evenings and we were very much impressed by the quality of the food. Absolutely Excellent. Well worth the £17.50 for the three courses. They even do an excellent Bar Meal menu.
Breakfast is waiter/waitress service and there is an excellent variety to choose from. They do both English or Continental and have alternative options such as Haddock with poached egg which is delicious, or oak smoked kippers, 3 egg omelet with a choice of fillings plus an excellent variety of cereals and fruit juices.
If there was one thing I would say to the hotel about the accessible bathroom it would be to provide a couple of grab rails on the wall where the shower is but having said that, my wife did manage but it would be nice to include this next time you refurbish.
All the staff here couldn't do enough to help make our stay a memorable one. You can't beat good old fashioned friendly sociable service. There is a happy aura among the staff here and this is oozes out to guests. They know exactly how to treat people and are always happy to help.
Without a moments hesitation, we would stay here again and I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a base to tour the Peak District, or visit Alton Towers or Chatsworth House. Burton-on-Trent itself is a quaint market town and has a market running every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
I would like to finish with a personal note to all the hotel staff by saying a big "Thank you" for making our stay so very pleasant and memorable. We are looking forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future.
