The Best Western Hotel at Orton Hall is a spectacular building with pleasant grounds and an overall wonderful atmosphere. The hall has several historical features and it gives an impression of grandeur.
The service was professional and friendly and the reception staff were especially helpful.
We asked for a room which was easily accessible owing to mobility concerns, and we were given Room 004. The room was very spacious, tastefully decorated, and in good repair. The bed was very large (5' 6" wide) and had a medium hardness mattress. The room looks out over a courtyard, and the bath/shower combination was clean, and had good water pressure and lots of hot water.
The sleep quality was generally good (with the very comfortable bed), but the noise levels were not as good as might be hoped for, the walls being fairly thin, and hallway sounds also being loader than might be expected.
The breakfast offered all of the usual continental offerings as well as a cooked buffet. The buffet was very well maintained and when new items were brought out, the leftovers were not spooned on top of them, but returned to the kitchen, leaving only fresh offerings. This was well appreciated and added to the sense of being valued as a guest.
Overall a super stay, and a 4.5 rating. less
