This was my second visit to Kenwick Park, My plan was to stay in Grimsby for my business meeting there, but when looking at room rates it turned out that the best rate for a superior room at KP was cheaper than the best rate at the purple chain. My room was huge with 4 poster and 3 piece leather suite, as well as a new very large bathroom with walk in shower (no bath). The carpets in the bedroom were a touch tired, but the free wifi was superb.
Even though it was a damp and grey early January day I went for a run through the woods and thoroughly enjoyed myself. There are lots of footpaths in the area, too, so if walking is your thing, a 1:25k OS map is definitely worth packing.
I had a decent local pint of Bateman's in the somewhat characterless bar but enjoyed my seafood risotto for supper.Breakfast was also good with a hot and cold buffet style service and espresso available if you ask for it.
My only criticism was that the water pressure in the shower was a bit feeble, which given that I'd got very muddy indeed on my run meant a longer time under it to get properly clean, Overall, an excellent value and relaxing hotel and I will definitely return. The new health centre being built next to the hotel looks spectacular and apparently is due to open in April. I'll be back at Kenwick Park to check it out.
Be aware that if busy the hotel will book guests into its woodland lodges which are about half a mile away down an unlit road (no traffic). Might be an issue for people with mobility problems or need wifi. (See my previous review). less
