Left feeling cold !!!!!!
Arrived at hotel, outside of hotel pleasing and presented nice.
Checked in and given key to room 115. Opened door to room, to find bed un made and dirty towels over bathroom floor. Obviously not been cleaned. Back down to reception, who to be fair to the lady apologised and booked us into the bridal suite as this was the only room left, as the hotel was fully booked. Went to the room, to find no pillows on bed, and missing cup. Again to be fair to the lady on reception she rectified this immediately and bought them up to our room. We left for the evening. I was there because I was appearing at a local venue as part of a band. When I came back to the hotel at midnight I jumped in the shower to freshen up before retiring to bed. No hot water, in shower or sink.....Had to boil kettle to have a wash. Thought perhaps this was due to the hotel being full and no hot water left, Up again at 7.30am, still no hot water. Having read some more reviews at the hotel, this is mentioned as a problem.....will read more reviews in future. Breakfast very disappointing, card on table states cereal, toast and cooked breakfast.....no cereal on offer at all. Cooked breakast barely warm at 8am when it had just been put out. Would not recommend. Stayed at far cheaper hotels and experienced far better service.
The Larkfield Hotel is a quiet place to stay, beautifully clean and with exceptionally helpful and friendly staff.
Good value for money
Hotel was comfortable.
Staff friendly and room spacious and clean.
Larkfield Priory Hotel
Stayed in many hotel and B&B this is the worst value for money.
Comfortable room, but dated furniture
It looked like the room decor had recently been modernised, but the furniture was very dated and left an "old" feeling which let it down.
Generally a decent night's sleep on a comfortable bed.
Very nice staff all was very welcoming and helpful.
No hot water on the second day!
I tried to take a shower but there was no hot water.
I was told that they turn off the hot water every night until 5AM but when I went back at 6:15 to try to shower again there was still no hot water.
Would I go there again?
We entered the hotel via the bar & Lounge and there was a distinct smell of toilets and toilet cleaners as we walked through the lounge to the reception area.
The hotel is a little dated and in need of redecoration. The room was adequate for our one night stay. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. However, I would not recommend eating at the hotel. We both ordered Lamb Shanks with seasonal vegetables. What was served up was a rather small lamb shank sitting on a dried out heap of mash potato with a pile of mixed veg straight from the frozen cabinet. Initial thoughts were disappointing and the plate of food was reminiscent of a school dinner. There was hardly any gravy and the lamb shank was stone cold in the centre. Needless to say I complained and had to return the meal to the kitchen. The waitress kindly offered us a replacement meal, this time we chose a simple meal that could be cooked in a deep fat frier. My husband requested peas with his fish & chips and was served beans, again the plate had to go back and was returned with peas, but now on a cold plate. The whole restaurant experience was a disaster. Sorry to say that I would not go there again.
Friendly staff, hotel bit tired
Was ok but in need of improvement.
Bathroom heating didn't work. In fairness to hotel, we didn't report this as was only overnight stay. Poor quality breakfast. Staff in breakfast room very helpful and couldn't do enough for you but the food really let the hotel down.
Very Good but not very great
For the price it was not a bad stay, it served it purpose.
Staff we're friendly enough, breakfast was warm but not piping hot, overall I would stay there again.
