8 of us stayed here for Belton Horse Trials this last weekend. 4 rooms.The location of the hotel was great. The rooms in the main hotel were good. The rooms in the cottage were under par - dusty, cobwebs and quite small. However, the hotel did knock some money off the two rooms in the cottage, when approached about the issues.
The hotel is dog friendly and the two rooms in the cottage were also taunted by yapping dogs from downstairs, but the hotel did apologise and address this with the dog owners themselves.
We ate in the King's restaurant on Friday night. Table reserved for 8.30. No starters but we finally received our meals nearly an hour later. Some of the meals were good, some ok. The service was very slow. The waitresses were apologetic for the delay, but we did have to chase them twice to see how much longer it would be. The restaurant wasn't full. A few of us had deserts and we were then promptly asked to pay as the staff were waiting to go home - when it took them nearly an hour to serve us our food!
We had breakfast included and on Saturday morning it took between 30 & 40 minutes for our cooked breakfasts to be served - ranging from smoked salmon and scrambled egg to full English. We had taxis booked, and so it didn't start our morning off well as everyone was rushing. Again, the restaurant wasn't full. We couldn't believe it when we were told they only had one person on in the kitchen. Sunday morning was improved turnaround in about 10 minutes, which was much more acceptable.
Given the above, I wouldn't choose to stay here again. less
