Business stayPosted Jun 25, 2015
Pros: Convenient location and good price
Cons: Bathrooms need refreshing
Nice hotel in lovely grounds. Downside was that my room was not in the main building. Room was small but bed was comfortable. Bathroom was a bit tired and in need of re-tiling and updating. Staff friendly, but had to ask for coffee to be served to me at breakfast!

De Vere Venues Highfield - Fir TreePosted Jun 10, 2015 on Hotels
Positives : Room, clean and comfortable, a little small however as in the roof of the building. Quiet and peaceful. Negatives: Bathroom was the let down, no shower curtain, only a bath. TV was useless - only 5 channels available. Phone in room was useless.

Early morning business meeting.Posted May 21, 2015
Cons: Would be too long to list in only 150 characters.
My room was in a separate block about 300m from the hotel reception. As there was no parking available near the reception I parked in 'additional parking' carried my luggage 200m to the reception and found out my room was near where I had parked, so had to carry everything back again. The room I had was tiny, on the second storey of a building that could not originally have been built to accommodate hotel guests. The building sloping roof, reduced the space available in the bedroom which just accommodated a double bed, half height wardrobe and desk and chair. The bathroom was comical, as it was impossible to stand up to use the shower or comfortably use the bath. I waited 30 minutes after ordering a bar meal of pie and veg to arrive, the pie pastry was so hard I could hardly cut it with a knife and the pie itself very poor. There was a large party staying at the hotel and I was woken several times by the noise of doors slamming until 2AM. When I checked out a lady guest was also complaining about the noise, (she may have been staying in a different part of the hotel to me). This is possibly the worst hotel in that price range I have ever stayed in, (I have stayed in other De Veres hotels, several times before).

Keep Away, Expensive and Uncomfortable Rooms.Posted May 18, 2015 on Hotels
Keep Away, unless you wish to knock yourself out in your room. Rooms are very small and have a beam going across them. Beds are also short, and not comfortable. Breakfast price is exorbitant (£15 per person) considering how expensive the SMALL rooms are. Hotel location might be nice, but I was not planning to sleep outside, I paid a high amount to get a comfortable room which I did not get. Very disappointing.

Find alternative accommodationPosted May 11, 2015 on Hotels
Could've been a better stay if my room was of an adequate size. Not at all big enough for even a solo business quest. Room service brought my order to my room but it was stone cold. I had to leave my room and go and ask for condiments at the hotel bar as there wasn't any delivered with my meal which kind of defeated the object of room service. Plus I was over chsrges as a tray charge was added despite the room service menu stating no tray charge for orders over £15. Staff were very abrupt and lacked curtesy. Never again especially for the price they charged.
