Service and Staff
Property condition

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service

Lovely character and good. Good service from staff but very chilly. Our room radiator had been turned off and we had to open valve to get any heat. Only 1 fire going in bar and cold every time door opened. In the Restaurant staff left outer door open twice during dinner and my husband had to get up and close it due to -2 outside so cold draft on his back. The room itself very nice, but I had to put big jumpers on for breakfast. On 2nd morning they did add some electric heaters.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Traditional genuinely atmospheric hotel. Good breakfast was great.

Stayed 1 night in Oct 2019


  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

When we arrived the way to reception wasn’t obvious. Other guests were checking in & we weren’t acknowledged by staff whilst we waited, a simple “hello, I’ll be with you in a minute” would have helped. The check-in desk is in a tight area right by the bar which had a lengthy queue & we felt in the way with our bags. We were staying in the Lovell room. As described on the website, cosy cottage style with beams, a very large bed & various amenities. The room was dark due to only a tiny window but this was understandable given the age & design of the place. There was noise from the restaurant & garden area & a strange humming every few mins. The main room issue was the faulty loo. We reported this & unfortunately it couldn’t be fixed & maintenance were not available as it was a bank holiday. Staff offered us another room just up the corridor with no fuss. Wynchurch was a nice room with the same set up however there was a lot of noise as the bathroom seemed to be above the kitchen/outside store area & the bedroom faced the road. Our stay coincided with the Minster Lovell beer festival hosted opposite. This meant lots of people & cars around & really loud live music until after 11. It was disappointing this wasn’t flagged to us at booking, check-in or dinner. We were hoping for a quiet, relaxing English cottage experience & this was tainted. It didn’t help that we had to keep windows open at night due to the heat, so it felt like we were at the festival! Overall okay.

4/5 Good

    Great location. Chocolate box appearance. Food good. Bathroom claustrophobic, grubby,difficult to manoeuvre in and out of shower over bath. Mattress was squishy. White wine not sufficiently cold. Only solution was to put an ice cube in glass, I refused, and waited for bottle to chill. Next glass wasn’t cold either. Didn’t drink either, charges for both. When mentioned at checkout was told they might need to look at fridge settings.
