Lovely overnight stay.

Have stayed here two years ago.

Owners have improved the place considerably since then. Lovely room and restaurant very good too - great if you are too tired to go out searching for somewhere to eat. Staff all very pleasant and helpful. Good value for money.

Stay with dog

Stayed in annexe rooms where dogs are allowed, these rooms not quite up to the standard of the main hotel but this is understood as dogs use the rooms as well.

Rooms cleaned and tidied very nicely each day. No problems encountered having dog with us at all and a nice walk across the fields and into a forest is just across the road. The staff were superb and very welcoming, the bar area is lovely and the restaurant food is very good indeed. Overall a very nice stay......

It does still have the echo of a Motel from the outside but a great welcome, good room, lovely setting and good food dispel the fears.

Room I was in close to dining room so slight noise impact but overall excellent

A 'major' Folly

Having just celebrated our Golden Wedding we were looking forward to a few days break.

We booked the 4star hotel, Judd's Folly, as a good centre for our sightseeing having looked on the hotels website as well as On arrival the park lands were beautiful but the hotel did not inspire at all. The staff were polite and helpful and the dining room we passed through looked very elegant. We had decided to up our room to a 'Junior Suite' at £95 per night, thinking we would have a better aspect & room. Our room was situated on the ground floor overlooking the courtyard which doubled up for a car park and we had a superb view of the waste bins, full to overflowing, each time we stepped outside or looked out of the window. We appreciate that refuse bins are needed but they should be hidden and not near the guests rooms. At the entrance there was a small unclean table & two chairs for smokers with a dirty tub for spent cigarettes, which mostly the staff seemed to use and if we had our window open we got the second hand smoke coming into our room.The carpeting in the passageway was very dirty and un-prepossessing. Our room itself was large, carpeted, with a big bed, sofa, armchair and other tables and chairs with a big roomy bathroom - loved the quirky ducks in the bath. In the blurb we were informed there would be complimentary fruit, chocolates and a bottle of wine; there was no fruit, a box of chocolates and my idea of a bottle of wine did not match the hotels as there were only two 'airline' sized bottles of wine. There was only one set of towels to share - one bath and one hand towel. We don't mind re-using towels to 'save' on laundry but do expect a set each. The tap in the hand basin dripped, or rather ran continuously, and when we told the hotel they said they would fix it but nothing changed. We did not dine in the hotel but the breakfasts were good and plenty of it; but why oh why could the tea & marmalade not have been of a better quality & to have decent bread and not sliced plastic bread for the toast; the cost would be minimal. There was a delightful patio area with a pool and fountain with seating area overlooking the park outside the dining room. The staff were pleasant at all times and smiled and were very welcoming but sadly the overall experience marred our visit and it was very disappointing.

Response from hotel

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review.

First of all congratulations on your Golden Wedding Anniversary. I am pleased that you found the staff pleasant at all times and the room and breakfast overall was satisfactory.

I respond in line with your comments

a) We are NOT 4 Star, Never have been or ever advertised this.

b) We do NOT advertise or state that the 2 Junior Suite we have had good views. They are both located on the Ground floor.

c) The Bin area is located at the back of the hotel, it is unfortunate that this is close to the a few of the rooms and we are looking into fencing the area off.

d) Smoking – The table in question is used by staff and guests, this is again around the back of the hotel, I will ensure it is maintained better in the future.

e) We do NOT advertise Fruit in the package However Wine and chocolates were in your room, this is a gesture for booking an upgraded room.

f) Towels – We supply 2 sets in each room, 1 in bathroom 1 in wardrobe. You were here for 3 days, ??? Surely you would have mentioned that previously

g) TAP - Interesting - You reported Thursday Morning, Washer was changed Thursday. No Drip – You then left it until Saturday to mention this again.

YOU failed to mention you were discounted £25.00 for this, even though we checked the tap and it was satisfactorily not dripping

h) Marmalade is Robinsons and Tea is PG and Yorkshire, Bread is Hovis. Interesting you find these items substandard.

The rate of £95.00 was very competitive for the evenings you stayed and if you were unhappy, I can only apologise,

Lovely hotel

Small, but very nice single room.

Lovely breakfast, but dinner a bit disapointing. First night very quiet, but second night there was a wedding on and music went on till 1pm - would have appreciated a warning when I booked in.

Friendly staff and clean rooms

We had a lovely stay at Judd Folly - the staff we are very friendly and welcoming, our room was a good size, clean and as expected.

The breakfast was nice - we enjoyed the full English breakfast and the choice. Hotel is slowly being done up and you can tell once finished will be lovely, would stay here again, thank you for a lovely stay x

A quirky retreat

So unusual, lots of separate rooms and some in lovely cottages

I loved the chairs and tables outside for enjoying the evening sunshine
