Stayed here last year on business, this time to get married! Had the ceremony and wedding breakfast. My future wife and I decided we would stay the previous night, both upgraded our rooms, plenty of space for haridressers, make up ladies etc - not for me! The whole day was fantastic, Richard Gray, Master of Ceremonies was on hand all day and evening, together with all the staff that were on duty, every detail was attended to, nothing was a problem. Many of our guests remarked how beautiful the civil ceremony was, "the best we've ever been to" was said many times. We were most fortunate with the weather, clouds in the morning parted, the sun came out as the service finished, we had lots of photographs in the gardens, guests enjoying catching up with family and friends. The Wedding Breakfast was served promptly, and was enjoyed by everyone. Tables were cleared, and the room was made ready for the evening, again, everything was done as requested, we have the most amazing day! The following morning, the remaining cakes, table decorations, flowers etc had all been placed on tables ready for us to take away. Thanks to Sophie, our Wedding organiser, from the very start, Sophie organised, made suggestions to make our day so memorable, thank you!
The children chose this as part of their stay, play and explore break, overall the experience was fine, however, there were areas that the Hotel was looking tired, the Leisure Centre Staff were not the friendliest, when reminding us more than once that Children needed to vacate the pool before 7pm. The shower also had issues, it enjoyed having water flowing out of it a bit to much and any excessive manhandling of the lever to apparently stop this resulted in some dangerous wobbling!!!!! Breakfast included a wide selection of items to cater for varying diets.
Not the best wedding venue food awful and staff miserable especially the head waiter on the wedding day very rude and abrupt ! Certainly wouldn’t recommend for either a stay or wedding venue . Extremely overpriced for both the room and food and drinks so don’t be rushing back there
We came to celebrate my wife's graduation and the staff were so helpful, kind and friendly. The service was spot on and the food was excellent. Everybody complimented the food and agreed that the selection was good, as was the price. Ollie and the others looked after us really well!
The hotel looks ok, the bar area looks nice, swimming pool, jacuzzi/ sauna are ok, rooms are spacious. But why on earth would you allow all indoors areas to be swarmed by mosquitoes? I mean, every room was full of them, including the restaurant, bar area, corridors and rooms. I have been to outdoor restaurants abroad and was able to eat my food without being surrounded by insects. Sort this out guys!
Had two nights bed and breakfast here recently, the reception was warm and welcoming, and I was given my room key, my room was an attic room up in the gods, with a view of the outside seating area. The ceiling was a risk to my head ( I am 6’ 2”). It was a nice modern bedroom with air conditioning. It had a nice bathroom and a rain forest shower. I had a problem with the air con as the room was roasting, however reception came up and sorted it out for me. I chose to eat out on both nights and the small centre of Hinckley is a 25 minute walk away, with a collection of nice pubs and restaurants, a lovely walk on a pleasant summers evening. Breakfast both morning offered a comprehensive selection of hot and cold snacks and some nice fresh fruits which was nice. Pre cooked poached do not work for me as they become like golf balls freshly cooked in much nicer. Only a 3/5 I here you say. For a 4 star hotel certain shortcomings cannot be ignored, on arrival I was told they could,get me a newspaper, so I ordered the times, the following morning it had not yet arrived, so I asked them to keep it until I returned in the evening, sadly no where to be seen. I expected better, I have stayed in an HI where they would pop out and get a paper if you asked for one & it did not turn up. A 4 star hotel should be capable of providing daily papers to its customers, there were no complimentary papers in the bar for customers to read again poor. My room overlooking the outdoor drinks area desperately needed net curtains, so when I prepared for my bath I had to shut the curtains as people could see straight in. My bath temperature did not get particularly hot and neither did the shower, which was disappointing. The WiFi was the worst I had experience in a long time, when it did eventually connect it took a ages to load pages. There a long winded logging in process which only allowed 4 hours, so in the morning you needed to log in again, it was rubbish so I did not bother.
So at first glance the hotel appears to be a well maintained and attractive venue. The lobby is very well set and has a calming approach to it. Further up is the main bar and restaurant area which again is well maintained and offers a wide range of seating and lounge options. The staff at reception check-in and in the bar were very polite and friendly and this is commendable to see such nice service. The rooms however are very varied and it would appear that parts of the hotel have been refurbished whilst other parts remain old and rather unattractive. My room was on the 2nd floor but it took me a while to figure which side of the building it was on. During this time I had the pleasure of being in a rather old grotty lift and walking through the creeky corridors in the old part of the building. My room was clearly the newly refurbished type and was classified as a junior suite. The first thing that you notice is that the room has lots of space and almost appears to have some furniture missing. This is obviously not the case and it is just a large room, but it amazes me to think that they can classify this as a junior suite. The bed was very comfortable and spacious and the bathroom offered a separate shower and bath which is great to see. The parts of the visit that clearly did not offer any satisfaction were the basic repairs that have been neglected. These would include the wobbly toilet seat and leaking shower head pipe. Overall I would say the service is great here as are the pool and spa facilities and as long as you don't Mind the odd broken feature then this is a pleasant place to stay.
Would not recommend! We were due to stay two nights and checked out after one stay. Woken up at 5am by people walking down the stairs next to our room then woken again at 630 to the sound of the room next doors tv! We did not get the robe and slippers ordered and were not booked for dinner even though booked online. The manager was rude! Insinuated I was a liar as ‘no one was in the next room’ do not stay in 135, 134 was not booked, 136 was! We got an alledged upgrade to try and fix the issue with noise and were given a room which didn’t have sockets by the bed, the shower was a third of the size of the lower grade room, one of the lights didn’t work, you couldn’t watch tv from the bed and the view was a roof and a wall (104) so we checked out early, absolute waste of money and waste of a well needed break away! I was so upset by the rudeness of the general manager on checkout I actually cried (I do not cry lightly!). Definitely would not recommend at all and will be making a formal complaint.
Booked a room for 2 and was presented with a room with two single beds made up and simply pushed together. Beds are on wheels so simply separate when you roll near the center. Rooms are clean and pleasant but beds not properly made with mattress visible under pillows. WiFi is weird and for some reason times you out after 4 hours do you need to log back in allover again.also weird rule about having to carry my room key wallet around with me in the hotel or I may get disallowed entrance to the facilities. Isn’t my room key enough? Parking is ok and staff are pleasant enough but can’t really recommend.
We booked a 2 night stay including breakfast and evening meal through Great Little Breaks which turned out to be exceptional value. The room was advertised as a contemporary junior suite but was more like an executive room, however, the hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly. The weather was excellent so we took advantage of the patio/terrace which was very pleasant. There was some confusion over our dinner reservation on the first night which was resolved by a young waiter called Sam Bower? who impressed us with his charm and professionalism. On the second night we were entertained by an excellent singer/guitarist call Dan who also worked as a waiter at the hotel. We didn't take advantage of the leisure facilities on this occasion but we had an enjoyable stay and would recommend this hotel.
