We have stayed at The Duke previously,hence it was our choice to go again. We were not disappointed. The room was clean,warm and there were adequate tea and coffee supplies. The staff were warm and friendly and helpful. Excellent value for the money.

Stayed overnight in twin room. Room was clean and tidy. Bed was very uncomfortable bad night sleep and woke up aching from lumpy mattress. My friend in the other bed couldn't move in morning as her back was aching badly. The shower didn't work, only hot water coming out of it and it was scalding. Also wasn't able to turn...

This hotel in the centre of town has no parking of its own and a problem if no space along building is available.Great prices for food ,room and drink but the drunken rowdy darts fans from Butlins did Witherspoons no favours and not a good atmosphere for the other patrons.I was in room 104 and got very little sleep because...

Dear PooleFisher, Thank you for your review, indeed we have no car park of our own but there is ample on street and some car parks close by.

Appalling if I could give no stars I would. Dribble of a shower. Un maintained rooms with chewed up batteries in the remote which didn't operate to. Woken up in earlier hours by screaming shouting and fighting then again at 7 in morning by staff shouting outside door. Couldn't open window to air room as too noisy outside. Couple this...

Dear Bigmoke666, Thank you for your review, I have no idea which room you were in, but can assure you that at 7am all the staff would have been working and none of them would be on the floors. Nor would they have been rude to a guest. Could they have possibly been other guests? I have asked the Housekeeper...

Big family room, cleaned ok, some staff attentive, bar & restaurant service a bit hit or miss. Had to ask for decent pillows that had stuffing in them. Unfortunately the family rooms are above the nightclub exit and delivery entrance. We had 4 nights of listening to reversal beepers on service lorries, high metal cages being dragged over metal ramps,...

Stayed for two nights on a mini break. Room was clean and comfortable with fresh soft towels provided each day. Great location in town centre so could walk in the evening to eat out or have a drink. Hotel food was good value and plentiful. Would stay again. Everything was provided that would usually cost a lot more.

Dear xxnetthxx, Thank you for your review, We are so glad you enjoyed your food, and can only apologise for the delay.

I am rating this on Lunchtime as this is my only experience. A glass of wine with buffalo chicken wings & tempura prawns. A lovely lunch. The Prawns were good but the chicken wings were excellent, the blue cheese sauce being exceptional. Prices are very reasonable.
