A mixed bag- helpful staff, cold rooms on arrival

Posted Jan 26, 2015
Pros: Appearance of rooms, interaction with staff.
Cons: Remove little things that niggle - small credit card charge on bills, WiFi personal data capture, chef sending out undersized portions,
For the price in the location with the amenities on offer I had high expectation for this hotel. Checked in on a winters evening (2 rooms) Both small windows wide open and room heating off - we had to stay in our coats for a while. During freezing weather someone could have realised guests might not want to check in to a fridge. The corridors are also very cold. Rooms are a good size and nicely decorated. Free WiFi at a price - you have to enter lots of personal data which you then have to agree can be used for marketing purposes, if you choose to progress. Dining room was very cold even when it was busy - but the staff worked hard to provide good service. Breakfast - two of us ordered fish at a supplementary price. Someone in the kitchen decided it was appropriate to send out piece of haddock the size of small goldfish. It went back and an appropriately sized portion eventually arrived. After a few niggles when we got to check out we found there is an additional charge for every credit card transaction. We payed by debit card and left.

Whistling through the night

Posted Dec 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very comfortable and situated in a quiet area but close to useful locations at the same time. Unfortunately the room I stayed had windows that did not close tight so all through the night there was a whistling sound from the wind which kept me awake. Otherwise it would have been a great night.

Lovely hotel and setting spoilt by terrible service. Reception understaffed. Bar staff over-stretched and unhappy.

Disappointing for a Macdonald hotel

Posted Oct 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
Slow service, overpriced, overhyped menu. Pillows awful, bulb not working in key lamp in an already dimly lit room

Calm, relaxing and luxurious

Posted Sep 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
We were returning from a tour of Snowdonia and a relaxing contrast was in order! We found the parkland setting delighfull and the public rooms stylish and comfortable - but the bedrooms were definitely 5*. When they allowed us to charge our Electric Car - it instantly became our preferred stop, in all of Shropshire!
