I booked a premium room when i arrived the room was small so i checked out other rooms which were no different to the extra £15 i paid so the twin double and standard room are all the same as the premium room so no point paying for a better room because there is not one.
Breakfast was very nice and the staff were very pleasant and helpful just the rubbish room I paid for.
The Dukes Folly Hotel
No food after breakfast (IE).
No bar lunch if you wanted anything in the evening you had to go out.
The Dukes Folly Hotel
Excellent location for anything one wishes to do.
Good value for money and great breakfast thrown in, couldn't fault it.
Poor allocation of our room for two,room 5 was unsuitable for a double.Whilst the Daktari theme was a brave attempt to bring some character,this did not enhance anything.
The so called en suite was dark ,tired and dingy.The shower cubicle was entered with difficulty and apart from the adequate breakfast our choice was marred by our experience .We probably should have refused the room on arrival
Uncomfortable nights sleep
First impression of room wasn't good.
No toilet rolls in bathroom, mismatch of furniture, room was cold/radiator didn't work properly, we found an empty water bottle behind the chest of drawers, shower room grubby and in need of a refit. Windows rattled in the wind and window frame dirty and in need of replacing. We arrived back in room late at night to find heating had been switched off so was now very cold in room and when we retired to bed there was only a sheet and a thin bed cover on the bed so it made us uncomfortably cold throughout the night.
a good value break will stop again
Great little hotel close to main town centre
Stayed for two nights staff very polite .
Room was very clean and the breakfast was huge
Tiny Tiny Box room with aircraft sized bathroom to suit. Certainly not what the sales pics show
Good Bits:- Hotel Is fine.
Social areas are nice clean and well presented. Reception guy was nice and friendly and helpful and Breakfast was good and freshly cooked. Bad bits :- £75 for 1 night in room number 5. An African themed box room with zebra print wallpaper you couldn't swing a cat round in. The Bathroom is exactly 4 square meters which consisted of a shower you have to climb over the toilet to get into and a sink. A z-fold door with more air gaps than door so privacy was non existent. Utterly pathetic lighting with the main room light, both bed side lights (one flickered as its broken) and the bathroom light on you could just about see to read. Then there was the temp ...... no exaggeration it was 84 deg f in the room when we entered. there are 2 full sized radiators in there they where both on full blast, i know its African themed but it was beyond ridiculous.. Upshot of our stay??. I wished id gone with my first choice and booked the other hotel as this was an expensive mistake which i personally would never repeat
Going to Sophie's christening.
To some extent our own fault, but we ended up three flights of stairs up with no lift.
Unfortunately my wife has breathing difficulties so not ideal for us. Helped greatly though by the young man who carried our case up for us. He was very helpful. The new door to the room led us to anticipate a bit more beyond However although a decent size it was a bit tired in terms of décor and furnishings. As evening fell it became quite cold and it was clear the central heating wasn't working properly. However we reported the problem t0 a second man now on reception and when we returned from our evening meal. the problem had been cured and supplementary heating made available; very helpful. Breakfast was lovely but choosing to sit in the conservatory it was really cold since there appeared to be no heating on in there at all.
Dukes Folly jolly good
Room not over spacious but more than adequate.
Shower very good. Breakfast very good. Staff very friendly and very helpful. Car parking quite limited but free
