Friendly, helpful and good food.

Friendly and helpful staff.

WiFi worked fine in the bar and room. Food was very good, both dinner and breakfast. I asked the bar staff for a newspaper which they found and delivered. And since it was quiet they were happy for me to change the TV channel in the bar.

Old World Charm

Loved the hotel, beautiful Minster and well worth a visit.

Wedding at Norwood Park

The location is perfect for weddings at Norwood.

It's about a mile down the road. Beware the lack of local taxis though - there is one company that gets booked up well in advance. This is a lovely hotel full of character.

Full of character and history.

Don't book if you want modern facilities, but ideal for visiting Southwell and like good traditional service and comfort.

Very nice accomodation, lovely staff.

Arrived at 7.30, so a quick shower then grabbed a bar snack - Bangers and Mash, lovely grub.TV in the Bar was handy, (football on) and lady working behind it was very helpful and sociable.

Floor in my room (14) creaked every time I walked around, which probably affected the person in the room below, more than it did me. Spacious, comfortable, with power shower and comfy armchair for watching TV. Missed breakfast the next morning (phone and e.mails kicked off at 7.30, and didn't ease off until gone 9am), and I happened to mention it as I checked out. I was then offered some croissants to take away with me, (which I gratefully accepted) as "compensation for missing breakfast", a very nice gesture!. I would definitely stay here again.

Friendly, affordable, comfortable. Just right.

I spent one night here with my 84-year-old mother as part of a birthday 'road trip' for her.

Our twin room was clean, reasonably priced, and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel is centrally placed in Southwell, perfect for a browse round the shops and a tour of the Minster, with an excellent Italian restaurant (complete with a great Buble-style singer) almost opposite. Breakfast was fine though we didn't sample the Full English because we'd eaten so much the night before. Staff were friendly and helpful despite having a great deal going on including a wedding reception, and a folk festival in the town.

Great stay

Room was very clean, breakfast did have to be taken before 9 but was well made, on the whole excellent value for money and would stay again.
