Avoid this hotel!!

Posted 25-Aug-2014
The hotel itself is beautiful from the outside but very, very dated. Spa wasn't clean, jacuzzi water was murky. The room was small and dark, it was clean however shower was a trickle. Breakfast plates, cups, cutlery was filthy with bits of food stuck to them. Staff were rude too.

A bargain break, that was OK

Posted 25-Aug-2014
Pros: The Location
Cons: It is really tired, needs a Makeover
Location: The town and nearby villages had some fantastic Restaurants and pubs. Great Canal Walks
We booked this break at the last minute, at a bargain price, the Hotel was in a fantastic location, but everything else was just OK. The staff were OK, the Breakfast was OK, the Rooms were OK. Nothing to rave about, just OK, but at a Bargain price

Outside stately home, inside crossroads motel

Posted 17-Aug-2014
Pros: First and foremost the lovely staff. The hotel is also quiet and has beautiful grounds.
Cons: This place needs a lot of modernising to do justice to its beautiful exterior and location.
Location: Market Bosworth is extremely pretty and well worth a visit. Do try Softley's, a local restaurant, which has a great seasonal menu.
This is my first ever hotel review, and I am motivated to write it because of an exceptionally disappointing experience. The gist is: don't stay here if you like a modern (i.e. post-1980s) bathroom, a decent breakfast, or wifi internet access. This place is stuck in a 1980s time warp - think peeling paint, stained shower curtains, separate water taps, chipped furniture. Nothing has been modernised and everything is as cheap as possible. This would be fine if it weren't for the 21st century rates that Bosworth Hall charges. Do you want to have a hairdryer? You will have to ask for one at reception. Are you in need of a shower cap (seeing that the shower heads in every bathroom are firmly fixed to the wall)? Bad luck, there are none. Trust the advertised "wifi access throughout"? Don't, because it only works near the reception. To us (my husband and me) the worst feature were the beds though - rarely had either of us slept on something so hard. At some point during my second night there I seriously considered switching to the floor. The breakfast is sadly in keeping with these low standards: everything is cheap, canned (yes, even the fruit in mid-August), and tasteless. The emphasis on money-saving is very clear throughout. Any redeeming features I hear you ask? The lovely staff. They are all helpful and friendly, and genuinely do their best in all respects.

Okay for short stay

Posted 12-Aug-2014
Pros: location
Cons: a lot
Location: Market Bosworth is a beautiful small town and will definitely visit it again
Was attending a wedding in Cedar Field and stayed here for two nights. Beds were very hard as were the pillows. Breakfast was chaotic and we had to wait 40 minutes for a table. Went out for dinner as the buffet wasn't very appealing with poor choice of food although at £10 you can't complain. On the Sunday the rain was pouring in and there was buckets placed all over the hotel.

Just about okay - lovely looking building

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: breakfast nice, helpfulness of staff, Grounds and the look of the building
Cons: Get wireless internet accesible in every room, a refurbishment and improve reception of TV
Location: Nice village close by with some nice looking pubs
Looks better on the outside and the communal rooms. The room I had was delapdated, The TV had a very poor reception (like watching all programmes with a heavy snowing effect and the internet in the rooms was a joke - it didnt work at all (It was fine in the communal areas nearest the reception. I would have used the swimming pool - unfortunately it closed at 7pm - I didnt get in from work till about 6.30pm

Nice hotel but the food was disappointing

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: The location, we were visiting Twycross Zoo so it was nearby. The facilities - although we didn't use the pool, we would use them if we came back
Cons: The food variety and warmth, and the rooms need a bit of updating.
Location: Twycross Zoo was 6 miles away
The hotel looked very grand from the outside and the rooms were ok, a bit dated though. There was a wedding at the hotel the night we were there. Our room backed on to the grounds where the wedding marquee was so it very noisy until the wedding finished. The food was ok. We ate in the bar as we didn't fancy the carvery. The variety was quite poor and the food wasn't warm. We had breakfast the following morning, and again the food wasn't warm at all and also there several people waiting for a table despite there being many free tables (the clearing of tables was slow). However, as we only paid £49 including breakfast, we couldn't really complain!

Review

Posted 28-Jul-2014
Pros: Location and grounds and closeness to the village.
Cons: Standard of food at breakfast such as fresh fruit rather than tinned.
Location: Battle field and access to leicetser.
The venue and grounds were impressive and we liked the history/Dixie family connection. But the room had a rather musty/distemper smell. The breakfast food was ok but nothing special, not what I would have expected from such a grand mansion.

Lovely setting.hotel needs serious refurb.

Posted 28-Jun-2014
I didn't really mind the poor general condition or the small size of the room but I did mind the shower verging from ice cold to boiling hot every few seconds no matter how much I tried to adjust it. The setting is lovely and my view was of a paddock full of sheep, I even saw a deer walk across the field. The Windows we're sliding sash type but they were pinned so that you could only open them 2 inches. The frames were peeling and the wall paper was similar. The bed was a plain cheep double but it was comfortable. The show a mentioned was the big issue for me. There was a serious water pressure issue I suspect the temperature variation was caused by other people flushing laboratories or turning on their showers. The place is also full of what like pensioners coach parties. Internet was ok but not great and the telly was very old and had only 5 pr so channels not even Freeview. If you get this place cheap then it is probably ok but don't expect luxury.

Great historic building, grounds and spa

Posted 10-Jun-2014
Pros: The buildings and grounds are lovely - a former stately home.
Cons: The furniture could be updated in parts - but it has has charachter. Quicker service in restaurant, and real ale in bar would be good.
Location: Large park and lake opposite. Market Boswoth village has nice little gift shops, small co-op, and nice pubs. Bosworth battle visitor centre nearby
Was nearly put off by other reviews but decided to give it a try. Wanted a relaxing break for the two of us. Booked a good deal via expedia and were not disappointed - the building is a lovely stately home set in beautiful grounds and a 2 minute walk away from a lovely park and pretty village of Market Bosworth. The room we had did have old fashioned furniture (as mentioned in other reviews), but it was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and there were all the facilities we needed including tea and coffee. In the evening we had a bottle of wine whilst sitting in the sunshine in in the beautiful gardens (with our small dog) - it was perfect. We had evening meal in the a la carte restaurant and had a nice meal. Breakfast in the morning also good. We used the Spa pool and sauna etc which added to our relaxing stay.. Had to pay a small fee to enter pool/spa as it was not included in our package. However there were not lots of kids running around as there sometimes are when such facilities are free. There was a good gym and tennis courts there too - altough we didnt use these. Overall the weekend break was great and good value - will go back again.
