Yes, but, no, but....Posted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: New decor-eye catching.
Cons: Tired bathroom
Location: Excellent setting in a nice village, handy for golf or exploration.
This is a difficult one to rate as the hotel is undergoing a lot of refurbishment. The imposing Edwardian external facade (which requires a massive amount of work) belies the degree of modernisation of internal public areas and bedrooms. Acres of dark wood, mirrored panels and striped carpets in the reception area worked for us, as did the aesthetics of the spacious bedroom with black and gold design wallpaper panels matching the curtains, contrasted by the neutral colour of other wall areas. Furnishing & lighting was excellent and if you like your TV there was a monster fixed to the wall, so there was no craning forward & squinting at poor pixelated images! The bathroom was another matter, however, with a new shower unit incongruously gleaming in a tired setting, typical of work in progress. Tired can be applied to corridors also, but everywhere was clean & tidy. The dining room was more subtle in its decor, easy on the eye, but "on trend" with unusual crockery framing a very good cooked breakfast. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our short stay was pleasant, but I'm not sure the cost represented good value. Perhaps visitors making use of the spa facilities during a longer stay would disagree. In the future, as refurbishment progresses, this has the potential to be a very nice hotel indeed, with imagination hopefully extending to the extensive garden area also.

Comfortable place to stayPosted Jul 23, 2013
Hotel is clearly in the middle of a refurbishment programme - the room was very modern, but the corridors were in need of some TLC. Staff were helpful, but clearly inexperienced. However, when asked a question they did not know the answer to, they took the trouble to find the answer and contacted us as they had agreed. Overall, the experience was good.

Great stay, nice rooms and good breakfastPosted Jul 22, 2013
Pros: Stylish room, great shower
Cons: Under refurb so corridors are tatty, but not a problem
Me and my husband needed a hotel in Woodhall Spa as I was competing in the triathlon. The hotel is in the process of refurbishment, but don't let that put you off. The reception area and bar areas are all recently upgraded and very nice indeed. We had a newly refurbished room which was very stylish, clean and comfortable, with a really nice bathroom and a good quality shower (all too rare in my experience) and a huge plasma TV. The corridors are tatty but there are signs up explaining the refurbishment. The staff were friendly and helpful - they stored my bike securely with no fuss, and gave us extra pillows when requested (I need plenty as I have a back problem). We didn't eat dinner at the hotel as we had a reservation with friends elsewhere, but the breakfast was good quality and the service attentive. Overall a very pleasant stay with no complaints at all.
