Stayed for 2 nights with friends and whilst Wisbech itself could do with rejuvenation, the hotel was excellent. From the moment we arrived they could not have done more to ensure we had a great stay. From the initial checking in through to meals and checking out everyone was so warm and welcoming. Many hotels who charge a lot more...

This hotel is full of character as a building, however the staff lack this character. On check in i was met with a direct approach from a member of staff, even when i asked where was breakfast held and the direction to the room, there was no personal connection. I was given Room 404, which was top of the building,...

Booked two rooms to stay in Wisbech whilst visiting family. The hotel is very old and has bundles of character! I cannot praise the owner and the staff enough ! They dealt with all the problems in the most efficient way. I have to mention that the problems were incurred of no fault of the hotel staff but from other...

I've just stayed for another 3 nights as we use the hotels conference facilities. Despite a change in staff, we were again very well looked after by everyone, particularly Anne who responded to all of my requests. This is an interesting hotel, with lots of history so if you want perfection in a modern, faceless hotel, this is not for...

This apparently used to be the best hotel in Wisbech. Well I have to say it probably was once but it has a few problems now. Some of the rooms had no electric sockets working from Friday afternoon until we left on the Sunday. Some had no hot water for the whole weekend due to a problem with a boiler....

Stayed here last night, room 314. Room clean and tidy and decor was ok. The bed had to be one of the worst ever, so soft, lumpy and uncomfortable. I guess the bed has been there since the hotel was built 1601 !!!. Bathroom clean BUT the shower door was held on by only one hanging roller at the top....

It was last minute and the only room they had, fair enough - but what a horrible room, very basic and quite small. Very strange shaped bathroom with the ceiling beams you couldn't use the shower because you couldn't stand up it was a joke, very dated but it was clean. Would return but would be specific to not get...
