Customer Reviews
Overall Rating 4.5
based on 2 reviews.
Customer Rating: Ms West, ROYSTON The only reason I wouldn't stay again is that we've explored the area. The RHS Hyde Hall entry included in our break was excellent. The hotel was clean and comfortable but there was a wedding on the first night so we couldn't use the restaurant and it was closed the second night as it was Sunday. The food was excellent however, although the service and atmosphere in the bar were uninspiring. The hotel is about to be renovated and it does need it but it was a good stay all the same and good value for money.

Customer Rating: Mrs Hunter, Northampton Although the room was very nice, it would have been good to have a bath and not just a shower
