“Fantastic Meal ”
Reviewed 20 December 2013 via mobile

My partner and I had a great night out on Tuesday evening. I got a good voucher deal for 2 courses plus wine for two people.

The atmosphere was lovely, the service attentive but not intrusive and the food was fantastic!

I'd highly recommend this venue and look forward to a return visit soon.

We popped in on a Friday lunch time, we only had 40 minutes and the bar was very quite, so we both ordered a burger and a drink, the burgers took ages to arrive when we inquired to delay were told restaurant was very busy, we explained in a hurry, and the waitress was very helpful and hurried the order up and refunded our drinks without being asked, when the burgers did arrive they were fantastic ( the best I have ever had) would go back, sometimes problems occur, but it's how they are handled, will go back lovely food reasonably priced and nice staff.

We were staying in this hotel and when we returned in the eveing there was a rowdy crowd of people blocking the entrance most of them seemed to be smoking, they were attending a function held in the hotel, on trying to enter the hotel we were totally ingnored when asked to be excused so we had to push our way in only to invite snide remarks, this was very intimidating. I felt sure that the receptionist was well aware of people blocking the entrance and certainly must have been aware of the noise.

We stayed at the Rugby Hotel for 2days the 27/28th October,we were their to attend our nephew's wedding.The hotel was very nice but on the day of the wedding we had no hot water,we were told that the cellar was flooded,we had to make do with boiling the kettle and having a strip wash the following morning there was still no hot water,at check out the receptionist apologised and said she would deduct the cost of the breakfast,on checking our bank statement they have not done so.They are now saying that the water was not off for that long,but I can honestly say there was no hot water in our room or in the room of our relatives.

Rugby H, Guest Relations Manager at The Rugby Hotel, responded to this review, 17 November 2013
Dear Patk1949

Thanks for your feedback, and I am sorry that you had no hot water during your stay at The Rugby Hotel. We did indeed have a problem with the hot water boilers early in the morning which, when noticed, we called our engineer out who corrected the fault within a few hours.

Upon checkout you did mention to the reception team about your dissatisfaction and as a good will gesture we did take breakfast off the bill. On a separate note, the hotel was fully booked on both days and we received no further complaints about lack of hot water.

I also believe that I have been communicating with you away from tripadvisor to arrange the above refund and to arrange a return visit to the hotel in the near future to show that this is not our usual excellent standard we offer all of our guests.

If given such an opportunity we hope to welcome you back soon.

Recently visited this Hotel on a Groupon deal for a meal only. We both had the mussels in white wine with garlic as a starter which were very good indeed. My wife had the pan fried sea bass and I paid the extra for one of their steaks. Both main courses were extremely good also as was the service. This establishment is under new management and the staff could not do enough to make our visit a memorable one. Considering our visit was on a Friday evening the place was extremely quiet and including us two there were only six people dining. If the quality and taste of the food continues we will certainly become regular visitors.
