Lovely Hotel

Very good service
Old fashion British atmosphere, the ground are lovely, so os the building and the park. The service is very good. It’s quiet and relaxing It’s nice to have access to a pool, sauna, gym as well The dinner and breakfast were both very good The only thing i didn’t like was the bed It was fluffly and soft, slighty curved in the middle. And i have back problems and prefer firmer mattresses, more support. The bathroom was quite outdated and small

Decent place, thoughtless check-in
Stayed here one night for a business trip. There isn't much around the immediate area, so the likelhood is (as it was for us) that you are tied to the bar/restaurant offerings at the hotel. Not that it should put you off though, as we found both the lunch in the adjacent sports club and dinner in the more formal surroundings of the hotel main building to be good quality with nice and attentive staff. On arrival, i was informed that due to my expedia status, i was being upgraded to what is known as the honeymoon suite. The room was large and comfortable although somewhat higgeldy piggeldy with a mix of different old furniture dotted around the place. The en-suite looked sizeable, so off i went to dinner. It was only the next morning when i came to shower that i realised the room i had been 'upgraded' to did not in fact have a shower. It has one of those tap extension hoses attached and no shower curtain around the bath and no place to 'hook' the shower head to. Now, a nice big bath may well be the choice for honeymooners but for a businessman wanting to get a shower, breakfast and on the road again, it is a complete annoyance. That i wasn't told about this when i was 'upgraded' from the room i had booked (which promised a shower) is my complaint. Other than that, breakfast when i finally emerged from my act of contorsion cleaning myself, was a very nice, cooked to order affair.

Below expectations
Poor value room, paid for superior to be told on arrival it was superior sized..... neither was true. Poor sized room and stains on the couch, asked to be moved rooms. This was much better

Prested Hall October Stay
All things considered a very pleasant stay.. the room was immaculately presented and the hotel itself is very characterful. It has the unexpected bonus of having a spa, swimming pool and gym facility on site; free to use for residents of the hotel. The staff were very friendly, I arrived quite late in the evening, after the restaurant had closed but the chap behind reception was happy to look online for other options to eat nearby (there is an Indian restaurant a few miles back in the village which stayed open late). I would definitely recommend this hotel both for those seeking a short mini break or for business travellers who are seeking a bit of escapism after a busy day. Looking forward to returning in the near future...
