Country House

Posted 22-May-2017
Pros: location
Cons: catering, management and maintenance
Location: small market town, important historic battlefield (Bosworth) nearby
The evening 'meal' was deplorable. Only a choice of gammon (which I don't like) or a single 'fishcake' which my partner said was tasteless and dry or, "steak & kidney pie" (ha ha) which was obviously pre bought (like you would get in a cheaply branded supermarket) consisting 95% of a casing of pastry with 3 minute cubes - 2 of meat, one of kidney about the size of a pea - in a teaspoonful of gravy. We fought for, a got, a refund. The fire alarm was obviously faulty - regularly going off throughout the morning at breakfast time and finally going off at 11pm when we were asleep. We and the other residents learnt to ignore it; which is not a healthy habit to get into. What if there was a real fire? How would we know?

Setting is beautiful but overall disappointing

Posted 15-May-2017
Pros: The swimming pool and jacuzzi
Cons: They could offer a continental breakfast as well as a full English in the dining room. Ensure the bikes are in working order before hiring them out.
Location: Market Bosworth is a picturesque and quiet village, ideal for walking and cycling. Lots of lovely places for afternoon tea and dinner.
The room was clean but very basic. The dining room at breakfast was overcrowded, very hot and we had to wait quite a while for food to be topped up. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were clean and spacious. We hired bikes and from the six bikes available only two were operational and one of those had a slow puncture so we had to return earlier than we would have liked.

I booked a hotel and stayed in a old people's home

Posted 02-May-2017
Pros: The building and the grounds
Cons: Everything it needs a complete renovation
Location: The village nearby is lovely we had a nice meal in the Red lion just 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
Booked a cheap hotel near Mallory Park, was not expecting much but this was very poor. The hotel room smelt of cheap bleach like a hospital or old peoples home it was quite small tired and also a bit damp. We got a free upgrade to a much nicer room with a lovely view but it still smelt of a hospital in the bathroom. Wi-fi is not much and to charge for it is a joke. £8 for two coffee's and two cookies was very steep. We paid for breakfast which was not very good at all. The hotel was full of OAP's, coach loads of them it really was like staying in a old people's home. The building and grounds are lovely. This hotel needs a great deal of money spent on it in all areas.

Very good indeed

Posted 13-Mar-2017
Pros: Pet friendly, we had 3 small dogs with us and they had the run of the hotel with no problems. Very important to us.
Cons: Interior and furnishings a little tired, could do with some upgrading, but this did not deter from an enjoyable stay
Location: Excellent location with a 2 minute walk to the town centre with a good variety of small specialist shops.
Excellent facilities, beautiful surroundings, friendly helpful staff. Good value food. Will certainly come again.

A Hotel with potential

Posted 15-Feb-2017
Pros: Gym and Spa facilities.
Cons: Car park, entire inside of the hotel and the staff
Location: There was a fantastic gastro pub called The Horse & Jockey we went to for dinner, would definitely recommend going there, was around an 8 minute drive
In all honesty from the outside the hotel looks great though you can tell it has been neglected as soon as you drive into the car park with the number of pot holes everywhere. For a building that looks so grand from the outside the inside is a massive disappointment, everything is very dated and it looks as though a lot of maintenance throughout the hotel has been neglected for a long time. There was a foul smell as we walked into the hotel all the way through to our room which felt like it was more of an after thought than a purpose built hotel room. The facilities within the room were average at best, the air conditioner was attached to a very thin wall and didn't look particularly safe, our room had an adjoining door to another hotel room and clearly the walls are a lot thinner than they need to be as you could hear every noise from the rooms. The breakfast was once again at the very best average. The only thing that salvaged at least some of this stay was the gym and spa facilities which were better than most other hotels I've stayed in. Other than that I would say the hotel needs a lot of work doing to it and perhaps to employ a better standard of staff. I will not be returning to this hotel or recommending it to anyone.

Cheap stay

Posted 13-Feb-2017 on Hotels
The hotel is very dated and the interior is now quite shabby. The room amenities were basic. We stayed on a half board basis. It needs to be clearer on the booking that half board means you eat in Jenny's carvery and NOT Comptons restaurant. We tried to upgrade but couldn't be accommodated. The carvery was not good. There was not much choice for the carvery. Staff were nice. The local area is very nice and I recommend eating in one of the nice pub/restaurants in the town. I would not recommend this hotel to couples looking for a nice weekend away. It is cheap and this is reflected in the hotel quality.
