Bar was quite pleasant , expensive , no...

The hotel and bedroom was very clean and the bed comfy, the bar food was also of good quality and very tasty, however the poor barman was run off his feet. The Breakfast was £9.95 extra but honestly worth the money and it was very good and the food fresh - Service was slow and dead flowers in the vases...

We decided to hold our Christmas party at the Old Palace Lodge this year. The atmosphere was brilliant, in very comfortable surroundings. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming as usual. The meal was superb and very well presented. All of our party enjoyed themselves immensely and are looking forward to next year's visit.

After last week's disappointment I have to say the staff and management have redeemed themselves, excellent customer service and the food very good. We will stay again. Lovely room and a nice hot bath, waitress friendly and courteous.

Our local tennis club held a dinner / dance here for 100 members and guests on a recent Saturday evening. The pre event organisation went very smoothly (thanks Sophie) and all our requirements were taken on board. The functions room was laid out as we asked and looked lovely. The food was higher standard than many guests expected and was...

Absolutely shocking customer service. Food a lot later than promised...it's 21:14 and still no food. Miserable bar staff. Cold shower. I'm cancelling my booking for next weekend. I've stayed in many better £85 per night rooms all over Europe. Don't stay here

Stayed here for two nights. The room was clean and fresh, large bed and comfortable sofa. The bar was reasonably priced and breakfast menu had a good range of foods, the staff very willing to make whatever we requested. Only problem we had was the cold water tap, we had to let it run over 5 mins before cold clear...

The whole place has got a 'run down' feel to it. Extremely limited car parking space (ongoing work on the car park it seems). Rather tatty outside, extremely narrow corridors with annoying steps all over the place. Ridiculous lift - FOUR PERSONS???? I managed to squeeze in with a little bit of luggage (that is if you can get in...
