“Friendly Staff Just A Few Niggles”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We stayed at this hotel very recently after our wedding locally.
We stayed in the bridal suite which was ok generally they did accommodate our friends leaving us a couple of "surprises" in our room which were fun.
The room was clean on the whole although there were paint stains on the carpet under the 2 windows in the room and when we turned on the jacuzzi setting on the bath it blew little speckled black bits in to the water but an empty and refill soon had things back on track.
I must say the staff were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble when requested we were particularly impressed with a member of staff who was vacuuming near the lobby early morning, he stopped what he was doing made us a cup of tea and took it outside to the benches so we could enjoy our morning ciggie with a cuppa, thank you
The room was really hot and was surprised there was no air conditioning in a hotel built around 2007 however the windows open all night cooled things a bit but it is a 3 star hotel which is difficult to remember as on the whole the public areas really reflect more

Now for the niggles
Asked for and invoiced for a bottle of champagne however an Italian "equivalent" was left in the room. If I order champagne I expect champagne not just overpriced fizz. I did not mention it at the time as this was our wedding night, we saved the bottle unopened to drink on our anniversary which was always the intention
Upon being served breakfast in our room as requested no tea or coffee was served on the tray until requested as we had a kettle and sachets in our room
The quality of the breakfast could have been better although our request for certain items was fulfilled which is great, the quality of the sausages served was rather poor (chip shop quality) the hotel is surrounded by countryside and farm shops within a mile this could be a golden opportunity to showcase the local areas produce and perhaps give further opportunity to other local businesses
The TV in the room is far too small if you want to watch tv in bed in relation to the size of the room
The paint covered makita jacket left on the back of the chair in the lobby for our entire stay


In summary would I stay again? Yes I would but with the knowledge that this is firmly a 3* establishment and that the customer service is excellent

My (new) husband and I cannot say enough good things about the Sharnbrook Hotel. Ciro, his family and his team worked together seamlessly to ensure we had a fantastic and stress free day. Our guests were equally impressed complimenting the venue and absolutely passionate about the food. Even one, notoriously hard to please, guest was waxing lyrical about the quality.
I would recommend the Sharnbrook for celebrations, accommodation and meals alike, as all areas are excellently presented. This is clearly a family with a passion for customer service and love for their business which they want to share with others.
We are already planning our first anniversary return - with lots of Sunday lunches in between!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent, large and regularly repainted to ensure good quality. Rooms at the rear...

We Recently had our leavers ball here. It was an amazing night, and the venue and service was faultless. Everything was very organised and we had great help in organising extras such as as photographer, and DJ. Would definatley recommend it, will certainly be back in future!!

Our wedding was held at the Sharnbrook Hotel. Ciro was on hand from the day we booked it. He and all the staff at the hotel saw that we had the most amazing day from start to finish. The venue is beautiful and we have had endless compliments on the food that was served. We would recommend the sharnbrook hotel to anyone thinking of having their wedding there.

We got married in Sardinia and wanted a venue to hold a celebration meal and party on our return. From the minute we met Ciro we knew we were in good hands, his professional but friendly manner put us at ease from the beginning right through to the end. The hotel, staff, food were first class and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and evening and many stayed and enjoyed the excellent breakfast. I can't recommend this highly enough for those looking for a wedding venue. 10/10 to Ciro and his staff for delivering a fantastic day and some great memories.

We booked the Sharnbrook Hotel for our May wedding after viewing a few venues, this one stood out by far as a lovely place with excellent staff and surroundings. The lead up to the day was made easy by several meetings with Ciro who kept everything very clear and calm. The day itself was perfect and impeccably well organised by Ciro and his team, leaving my new wife and I to thoroughly enjoy the day. I cannot recommend this venue strongly enough for your big day or even just a visit. The rooms are amazing and the food is delicious.

Room Tip: We obviously stayed in the honeymoon suite but having seen some of our friends standard rooms I can...
