Nice room, room for improvement at the restaurant
Beautiful setting, room offers everything except minibar and hair-dryer.
Restaurant: slow service, food ok; breakfast: slow service and a certain sloppiness in serving and clearing away
Booked at short notice, room was spacious, well appointed and clean.
The leisure facilities were a welcome bonus, and breakfast was great, very tasty and served efficiently.
Such a nice treat
This night away was very pleasant.
Dinner in the restaurant was very good with superb service and fine food. The room was large and very comfortable,all finished off by a very relaxed breakfast. All in all a very nice treat for my partner and me.
Was not informed on booking that two weddings were also b ooked in.
booked a table in the restaurant, had to wait over an hour for our meal to be served.
Stayed here before and would definitley stay again
This is a lovely hotel.
I've stayed here before and will stay again. The staff are super efficient and very friendly. I recommended this hotel to friends for a weekend break and they really enjoyed it too.
First of many business trips to Meriden, Birmingham
Nailcote Hall is a rural, historic hotel.
My room (12) was very nice - large bathroom, king sized bed and dual aspect windows in the old part of the budding. Being away on business I'd been over fed at corporate events and wanted to use the gym. I have to say I was very disappointed. The pool is lovely, with a steam room on poolside. The 'gym' is a cupboard with one treadmill, one treader and one other machine, some free weights and a couple of yoga balls. All were occupied - in future I'll only plan to swim.
The entire time I was there the toilet didn't flush, despite me reporting it. I would stay there again because of location, but bar food, gym and bathroom facilities were poor.
After reading some of the other comments, I wasn't expecting a brilliant stay, but I am glad to say I was pleasantly surprised.
The hotel itself was beautiful, my room (especially the bed) was clean and very comfortable, the food was very good and the service excellent. I'm sure I'll be returning.
Blast from the Past
Gueridon Service at the table, not seen that for years.
Ordered Whole dover sole, which was served at the table on the trolley, boned for me and then put back together and served with some nice veg. Trolley then went onto next table to cook their beef stroganoff and finally another table for crepe suzette, well done though. Nice room, big, comfy bed and clean. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced, old world charm. All a little bit stuffy and in danger of being too kitsch without meaning to be.
The cheap(!) £75 rooms are not worth the money
So, the Nailcote Hall Hotel does that nasty trick that several larger hotels (where not all rooms are of the same standard) also employ – if you book a discount room on Laterooms (or equivalent site), you are not getting a great deal on a lovely room, you are massively over-paying for a rubbish, in desperate need of refurbishment room.
Apart from the room size, which was quite large, I could have been in any £30 a night bnb, yet I had chosen the Nailcote to deliberately avoid the variable quality that can be found in an unknown bnb. My first thought, apart from that I had been ripped off, was that at least the room was adequate and everything appeared in working order. I should be so lucky. The bed (really soft but also lumpy, as if it was made up of many different cushions) and bedding (sheet, blanket and very heavy and unmanageable throw) was so uncomfortable that the only reason I was able to sleep is that I was exhausted. I did complain on check-out and they seemed very surprised, yet they must know that the older rooms are poor quality. The hotel as a whole appears to have great facilities (that I did not sample apart from the restaurant at breakfast, which was very nice) and I presume the new rooms are of a suitable standard. So, the moral of the story is do NOT stay here unless you are prepared to pay the full price, and even then I would check that you are in the newer part of the hotel. Otherwise, for £75 you could easily get a decent chain hotel (Holiday Inn, Ibis, even Travelodge) with modern facitilies, new furniture and that oh so recent invention of a duvet.
