I was passing and need to catch up with a supplier, we had a good meeting and the food was not bad. The staff were helpful and all in all a very pleasant visit I will make a point of staying over next time.

Planned my visit on watching the F1 and doing some work after a busy day. Was told on check in that you can't stream anything as it will just kick you off, but the fact of the matter was that the Wifi was none existent. Yes they tried to get this fixed by contacting someone in Ireland, but this was not working for my full visit. What happened to just resetting the router manually? If you want to you this system fine but have as system so that an engineer can come out and fix it if and when required. The telephone in my room didn't work but this fell on deaf ears from the receptionist. The same man on reception told off the very nice lady waiter that evening in front of guests for briefly talking to her colleague, the bar man, I'm sure if this was such a big issue that it could have been handled more professionally? I wad told that my room had been refurbished but the sofa seat was stained and the mattress was of poor quality. Breakfast was ok and when I arrived the hot Buffett was being put away as it was too dry, fair enough but then when I ordered from the grumpy waitress I was only served what had just been removed as the bacon was rock hard. I am a diamond card holder with BW and can honestly sum this hotel as one of the worst I've stayed at sadly. Please realise that wifi for people working on the road is as important as anything else ( not just a convenience ) and you really need to invest in this.

Good transport links being on edge of M42 - great for us visiting Donington. Room was average, smelt of smoke upon entering, shower head very low down, reception called us at 11 to say its time to check out (although in room paperwork suggested 12. Only little issues really. All round good value and would stay again.

My partner and I booked a two night stay through Wowcher and had our little girl with us. We had our breakfast both mornings and an evening meal. The room was an adequate size and had all the amenities we needed, however it was a very hot few days and with no air con we asked if they had a fan, the fan we got wasn't very effective because it was very dusty but we managed. We emailed ahead to check the hotel had a high chair and travel cot as if not we would bring ours. On arrival we were charged £10 hire for the travel cot. We found this quite cheeky considering they didn't tell us this previously and we if we'd have known we'd have brought ours! We felt that charging for the travel cot was unnecessary because at the end of the day we stated we had a baby at booking and so presumed this would be in with the price of the room. The breakfast was nice and service was good. On the first evening we were served by a waiter that seemed like he didn't want to be there, very lethargic, but then we were served by a young lady who couldn't do enough for us or our baby which was much better. Overall a good stay but could've been improved

We recently stayed at this hotel for 2nights whilst attending a wedding, the hotel and ground were well maintained and perfectly clean. The room was a good size with a comfortable bed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also great. We will definitely return when back in the area and recommend to friends.

We recently stayed at Best Western Appleby Park Hotel when visiting the area for a friends wedding. For the price we could not fault the room, it was comfortable and welcoming. The staff were great and happy to answer any questions that we had whilst on our stay. Would stay again if in the area as very easy to get too and practical to get into the town centre :).

Friendly staff, clean room and perfectly situated. Stayed to attend a fabulous wedding. Would stay again as hotel is in such an easy location. Breakfast was great and staff more than happy to answer any questions or queries.

We booked here as a couple with one child as we just needed a place to sleep after going to a party up the road. We checked in before the party and informed reception that there was no sofa bed in the room for our son to sleep on. The receptionist was very helpful and promised it would be done immediately, we reminded him again on the way out a bit later as it still hadn’t been sorted. On our return later that night with a very tired child there was still no sofa bed. The person on duty was very helpful and found us another room very quickly and came himself to make up the sofa bed but it wasn’t ideal to then have to move all of our things and a tired boy late at night. The room was also extremely stuffy and hot as it had been a glorious day and no windows had been open. The bed was awful (far too soft and a bit like sleeping on a waterbed it was so wobbly) but not much we could do about that. Breakfast was perfectly fine with the usual options available and the location was ideal for what we needed as we were also able to have a visit to Twycross Zoo just 5 minutes up the road before heading home. However, when you book a room for 3 people you do rather expect there to be space for 3 people to sleep…

Excellent hotel well worth staying in. Very comfortable and clean. Highly recommended. Could not fault the room or the breakfast. The welcome by check in staff was excellent and the same can be said for the departure. Would highly recommend this hotel.

My girlfriend and I recently stayed and found all of the facilities to be of a high standard and the situation of the hotel to be perfect for us to be able to attend a close friends wedding and also explore the surrounding area using the hotel as a base.
