We stayed for one night for our daughters Passing out parade at the Prince William of Gloucester barracks in Grantham. We booked a four poster room with evening meal and breakfast and were not disappointed. On arrival, the reception staff were very welcoming, ensuring we knew where the hotel parking was located and the pin codes to operate the barrier. We were informed of the hotel facilities and the directions to our room. The old world charm of the hotel means you need to have an excellent sense of direction when going to and from your room. The room was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Only one small point it was very warm, however from being 'up north', we are used to the cold and so opened a window.
The evening meal was served in the restaurant on the first floor (Kings Room), it gave a feel of an olde world banqueting hall. The menu was varied and the three course meal was excellent. The service by the restaurant staff could not be faulted, polite attentive and not overpowering. After a good night's sleep, the choice of breakfast was extensive, I enjoyed the full English, whilst my wife enjoyed a more continental breakfast, again the service was excellent. All in all we will definitely stay at this hotel again. The car journey to the A1 takes five minutes and well worth a short detour from the A1.
This is a hotel full of character and history, with excellent customer facing staff and worthy of revisiting. It is not a characterless soulless 'boutique' hotel where every room is identical.
