1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Staff & service
Awful attitude from the staff. We did not stay. I booked for an employee and they refused a room without my card, even though I had paid in full for it. Refused to speak on the telephone with me when I spoke to my employee. I had to ring the hotel. Rude, unfriendly and very unwelcoming. I book multiple hotels every week and never have I encountered a hotel with attitudes like this!

2/5 Poor

Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Never again
Quirky, time warp or simply run down - you decide. The bar which included the lounge seating was closed. Drinks were supplied to rooms meaning no chance to chat with other guests - or be comfortable. Breakfast was good, evening meal was very odd with Michelin prices. Eat up the road! Easily walkable. Lovely dining room, but cold in February! I was not given the option to review my account, the extras had already been charged to my card. I did get a receipt emailed later.

Lovely peaceful location
Quiet and peaceful location but close to the M4 junction 16. You get a very friendly welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms could use a little updating but they are warm, good size and clean. Would thoroughly recommend.
