Customer Rating: Mr Thomas, Cwmbran

Customer Rating: Mrs Sparkes, Crawley I booked a twin bedded room but was told when checking in that none available. Offered a double room with a put u up bed. Declined that so offered a double room and a proper single bed was installed. Staff were very apologetic but said hotel was fully booked - in that case why weren't we told we couldn't have a twin bedded room at time of booking? No robes and slippers in our room as advertised by yourself The food was delicious and staff very attentive The hotel,is very nice and the offer was very good value for money - just a shame we didn't get the room we asked and were told we would get.

Customer Rating: Mr Ranson, Stafford Excellent all round.

Customer Rating: Mrs GREENWOOD, Stourport-on-severn The service was top class, we found the staff very accommodating and approachable. Our room which we had upgraded was fantastic, well worth paying the additional amount for. We dined in the restaurant both evenings and found the service first class and the food was delicious. If we stay in the area again we'll definitely choose to stay at the Lambert Arms. Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so pleasurable.
