“Nice bar area, rest of hotel is tired”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2012

Stayed here twice on business. Rooms & hall areas are tired and could do with refreshing.
Lobby & bar restaurant areas are nice and modern though.
Food is good. Breakfast ok unless you love big fry ups.

We stayed one night for a wedding reception. The room was beautiful, as is the hotel. The buffet was very good, but the bar prices a little high, but that's hotels I guess. Service was friendly and efficient. We'd definitely stay again.

i attended a wedding at the potters on 22-9-12. the Hotel organised everything. It was excellent. every thing ran like clockwork. The staff (all staff) were helpful friendly efficient (even helped us put our button holes in). The food was excellent. the Wedding co-ordinator Andrew was very good as was the entire staff. many of us stayed over night the rooms were very very nice. the breakfast was lovely. The service we received was 5 star+. Everybody at the wedding had a great time and are still talking about it as it was so good many saying it was the best wedding they had attended. Many thanks to all the potters staff especially Andrew and Nina. thanks for a great /marvellous day.

Room Tip: found all rooms good but loved having a balcony.

Was a bit concerned after reading reviews about this Hotel, but we found no problems at all. Our room was clean and the food and service was excellent. I can only think that the people who complained must be very hard to please.

I treated my extended family to a last meal before I returned home to the states. Although a little expensive the quality, cooking and attention to detail of the food was fantastic. The portions were just right and the wine list was pleasing.
What impressed me most was the speed of service although the hotel was full and obviously very busy with weddings and several large groups, the Chef still found time to accomodate my sisters request for gluten free bread and dairy free pasta (both not usually readily available in most hotels!)
As to regards the staff although most were young they seemed to be well trained and highly briefed as to whose meal was whose and nothing was to much trouble. As a "YANK" i usually tip 10% but on this occasion it did not seem enough!
I am looking forward to returning next year when I visit the UK.

My daughter's wedding was held here last weekend & I would thoroughly recommend it for any occasion. The food & accommodation were excellent, the staff friendly & helpful & the setting perfect for the wedding photographs.

Room Tip: The Club rooms are on the 1st floor, but not all have balconies. Corridors are very long, so ask for...
