This hotel is in a great location over looking the sea. On a perfect sunny day you can sit outside and enjoy the views. If not you can sit inside the many areas and enjoy the views from a table or a comfortable sofa. The staff were accommodating to all of our needs and fully catered for our small dog. Our room had a beautiful sea view which was great to wake up to in the morning. The bed was huge and the bathroom spotless. The food in the bar was delicious and so were the freshly made sandwiches we had ordered to our room late in the evening. All in all we had a great stay and would definitely come back to this hotel. Highly recommended!
We got married at the Walton Park Hotel on 03rd June this year, and I’ve been meaning to get around to writing a review ever since! I actually found the hotel a bit by accident – looking at another Best Western hotel in the area online – and they happened to have a wedding fair on within a couple of weeks so we went to have a look around. One of the major reasons we were interested in this venue was that they allow dogs not only at the ceremony but also to stay in the hotel (we have 2 border collies) and it had been near enough impossible finding another venue in the area who allowed this! We were both really impressed at the wedding fayre – the hotel is quirky and characterful with an amazing view across the Bristol Channel and I couldn’t quite believe the prices, it seemed so much cheaper than everywhere else we had looked but didn’t feel like a cheap venue at all! We booked our wedding date at the fair and visited the venue several times between then and the big day with our friends, having lots of lovely meals in the bar area (as you can take doggies in there) and getting to know several of the staff quite well. The wedding coordinators changed part way through planning our big day but both were very friendly and helpful, and as I say I couldn’t really get over how much cheaper everything seemed to be there compared to other venues we had looked at previously. We both love the character of the venue – it’s like an old hotel Poirot or Miss Marple would stay at, with lots of little quirks such as the old fashioned (albeit tiny) lift with metal shutter doors and corridors swathed in textured walls! Sam, the coordinator who handled our wedding towards the end, was so helpful and stayed in touch with us regularly – asking us to bring certain things such as table decorations, table plan, etc, a week before the big day which was really nice (it got them all out of the house and meant we didn’t have to panic last minute that we’d forgotten anything!). As rooms were so reasonably priced (£35 per person per night including breakfast for wedding guests) we, as well as about 15-20 friends and family, all stayed the night before the wedding and as there were no events on in our ceremony and reception rooms the night before we were able to setup various things (my partner was doing the music for our wedding and I made our wedding cake) which was lovely as I’d expected I’d have to get up early on the day to do things. We all had food in the bar and it was lovely that everybody was able to socialise together and that we were able to have the dogs with us. The day itself was absolutely perfect – I woke up really early which was lovely as I was able to watch a beautiful sunrise over the Channel, and everything went so smoothly. We chose not to stay in the bridal suite as the bed was a little small for us, but the room we had was gorgeous – it was directly above our ceremony room which was lovely, and was the perfect size for me and my bridesmaids to get ready in. Some of the other guests rooms were considerably smaller but that’s the quirks of an older hotel – the rooms are never all going to be the same! Sam told my partner if she packed her things and left them in her room they would move them to my room during the day for us which was handy (although my partner seemingly forgot this and moved her stuff to one of her best men’s rooms anyway). Sam decorated the ceremony and reception rooms beautifully – we had hurricane glasses with candles in the middle surrounded by sand and shells, but also loads of spare shells which she’d scattered very artistically around the bottom of the cake stand and on our card table using her own initiative. The chairs covers and sashes were included and we’d been given a choice of sash colour and napkin inserts (we picked blue) which looked beautiful together and she had just set everything up so nicely on the tables such as our place cards and sticks-of-rock wedding favours. The food was good, the staff were wonderful, and I couldn’t imagine having had our wedding anywhere else! Because we booked the suite of rooms downstairs (Avon and Waverley Suite) we had our own private terrace leaning out towards the water, and were tucked away from the other hotel guests which was nice. The morning after it was lovely to have breakfast with our guests who had stayed the night, and both the morning of our wedding and the morning after they had reserved tables for us in the breakfast room without us even asking which meant we were all able to eat together – such a little detail but just really thoughtful. It was just generally perfect – I can’t think of one criticism of either the hotel or staff for our whole experience with them, and we will definitely be going back still for the occasional meal and probably our anniversary too. Can’t recommend enough!
what a great hotel just off the cliffs ,fantastic views very friendly staff ,great food and drinks ,ideal location ,fab walks ,there is so much to do, the rooms are spotless and well decorated , ,fantastic stay as always
A beautiful location, with lots of character, this hotel is fine if your not expecting all the frills. The rooms were clean and well equipped, the staff were helpful, but the breakfast was lacking. I was staying on business so it was fine, not sure I would want to spend a week here!!
We booked a room at this hotel last September so frankly to get the room that we did was very disappointing. It faced a noisy road and was very stuffy despite being able to open the windows which then became a security risk. The room was quite small and the lights over the bed too dim to read by. The shower was not easy to manage and as it was over the bath it was difficult and dangerous to get in and out of easily as there was nothing to hold on to. We were at the hotel to attend a function which involved a set meal which the main course was reminded me of school dinners many years ago especially the over cooked vegetables..broccoli and carrots and greasy roast potatoes followed by a tasteless dessert. This is a quirky hotel in a beautiful position so should have provided us with a pleasant experience however it fell far short of that in so many ways. The receptionist was helpful when it was needed but not welcoming or friendly on arrival. Management need to tackle the negatives in a positive way to enhance guest experiences.
The first thing to say is that we did not stay the night. The hotel is huge with stunning views of the Bristol Channel. Idea for weddings as you can have it indoor or outdoor. Drinks are very expensive, i paid just short of £22. for a very average bottle of Pinot Grigio,totally overpriced so i'd hate to think what the mark up price was. The hotel is in need of some TLC but having said that it does have a lot of character. To sum up i would say if the drink prices were more reasonable, Procecco £28 a bottle, too much, it's in a nice location with great view, that's if you have a sea view, and is close to Bristol, Portishead, Weston-super-Mare and many more attractions. such as Noah's Ark Farm and Tyntesfield to name as a few.
stopped over night dont expect the sort of experience you get in a modern hotel. our room was small the windows wouldnt open no air con so borrowed a fan. the bathroom is tiny with no shelf space to put a toiletry bag.the shower was not good with poor controls.the furniture is very old.as you walk down the hotel aisles the floor creaks under your feet.a lot of the best western hotels have this sort of feel but this hotel is dated.the lift is quirky i guess original which goes with the old feel.the bar was nice as was the location .one disabled parking space but other spaces available.if we had been stopping a few days i think the very basic room would start to feel stressful.i cant really feel annoyed because it is a very oldy world hotel it is what it is just dont expect a modern hotel spec because its not. hope this is useful.
I booked to stay here on Friday 04 August and having been delayed in a serious traffic incident on the M5, called to advise my late arrival. We arrived at 11.45pm, extremely tired having been in traffic, relative locally, for six and a half hours. We were made instantly welcome by Chris at reception, who kindly arranged personal room service, having not dined since breakfast. We slept comfortably and enjoyed an excellent breakfast before departing on Saturday morning. Outstanding customer service and good value for money
we have just had a lovely stay our room was quite small but very clean the bathroom had plenty of towels and other complimentary bits and bobs if you chose to use them the shower cubicle was a bit small and got very slippery the staff are all very friendly and helpful we ate in the bar the food was absolutely wonderful my boyfriend had the beef and mushroom pie which he said was the best pie he had ever had and not bad prices either also would recommend that if you do stay book a room at the back of the hotel with a sea view as it can be a bit noisy if your room is at the front around midnightish when people are leaving the wedding receptions that they hold there we would definitely return and would recommend it to anyone hope if you do stay here you enjoy it as much as we did
Left feedback at the hotel but also wanted to warn people not to stay - the WHOLE place needs a refurb. Dated is an understatement - there's a difference between historic and dilapidated! Our room was tiny, struggled to open the door whenever we used it and had to cram into a corner of the room to even get in as it opened into the desk that took up a good portion of the room. Window was a massive health and safety risk - an old single pane window that you had to throw your whole weight into to open; which opened by sliding up which you could easily have fallen out of. View was rubbish; when I knew we had a hotel over looking the sea I expected a sea view, not a road. Bathroom seemed bigger than the bedroom yet was cold and had a constant weird smell with mould. As for the rest of the hotel, the only thing I liked was the old fashioned lift with the grated doors that you had to slide open yourself. I enjoyed using that for the historical touch, but also to avoid the stairs as they were the creakiest staircase I've ever walked on - felt so flimsy, worried that we were going to fall through them at any moment! Breakfast was okay, lovely view of the sea but a good portion of it wasn't available. Receptionist very unhelpful with our check-in - we had a wedding that day so needed to check-in early and leave our bags there for the big day. We'd called ahead to check we could check-in early, all okay, but when we arrived at 12pm we were told we couldn't check in until 3pm and could leave our suitcases in the reception by the wall 'at our own risk' as there was a wedding going on in their hall. We weren't impressed by this and called the rest of our group to inform them of this when 15 minutes later the receptionist told us we could now check-in if we wanted to as the room had just been cleaned. Should have been told this in the first place; but we eventually got our keys to our room to leave our bags safely. Receptionist only seemed bothered about the wedding they had on later that day and the other wedding guests checking-in. Wouldn't return, unless they fully refurbished it as the view was beautiful across the sea atop the cliffs - but that is the only thing they seem to have going for it. £75 a night for a room like that was ridiculous - lower your prices or provide a better room and service to meet the price you are charging.
