Good location

Water pressure is an issue for both the shower and the toilet - both poor. Everything else was unique - BUT on leaving there was an issue with our agreed package price and charges were made for items not consumed at the hotel restaurant. Thankfully your duty desk staff were amenable and helpful and adjusted our payment to reflect an honest and true price. All staff were very helpful and friendly in particular the young lady who looked after us in the restaurant.

Will not return

Staff were mostly lovely. Room was unacceptable- there were many dead flies in the window. When we were going to tell someone there was no one around to tell. Menu for food very limited for evening. Breakfast was excellent. Grounds kept well, rest of hotel is shabby and run down.

Great location

Lovely stay at Newton Solney Mercure. Staff so friendly. Very clean and organised. Great meals and very nice room overlooking gardens which were a joy to walk around. Nice and quiet.

Disappointing - friendly, helpful staff didn't compensate for hotel shortcomings

Charles S. Couples - 11/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

All the staff we met couldn't have been more friendly. It made for a lovely atmosphere. The hotel is in a very pleasant village with lovely walks close by. However, lack of attention to detail let down what would otherwise have been a pleasant nights stay. Our garden room had a lovely view of the garden. Unfortunately the room window was filthy which detracted from the view. The grille for the extractor fan in the bathroom was missing, exposing all the fluff that had accumulated around it, which at a time when cleanliness is a priority isn't what one would wish to see. And unfortunately the electric shower wasn't working either. We were also disappointed with the Dining Menu. The item on the Menu we particularly wanted wasn't available - a problem with the supplier that morning - but it might have been more professional to have reprinted the menu for the evening meal so that the guests would not be disappointed.

Well located

Great time with family and friends for a wedding. Rooms need a bit of TLC, and cleaning needs to be more thorough. More staff needed for the bar. Drinks expensive and not a great selection.

Pleasant stay in the Trent Valley

agbird 03/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

We have stayed here at Newton Solney before. We had two good nights sleep, it was very comfortable. To be fair the Hotel itself is looking a little tired. The food was not brilliant, but the Staff were very friendly, kind and helpful. On the whole we enjoyed our stay at the Newton Park Hotel.

Joe W. Business - 02/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Interesting hotel based in an old manor house type building. Expect wood panelling, stain glass windows and maze like layout. Hotel rooms however were modern and spacious with a comfortable bed and feel. Room price was very reasonable but restaurant / bar food too expensive. Short walk to a couple of nearby pubs was in order.

Beautiful building inside and out

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Colin Business - 29/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

An old building, so if you like new build then this isn't for you. If, however, you like a bit of character, then this place is a charm! Parked across the road from the sheep grazing and had a lovely stay here wandering around the gardens behind the hotel. Only complaint is that I'm super allergic to dogs and there had obviously been a dog in my room at some point because I was itchy. I took an antihistamine and was fine, and I feel this was more my problem than the hotel's and allowing dogs to stay is one of their selling points for many.

Pretty terrible

The only positive I can give from our stay is that we were here for a friend's evening reception for their wedding and they enjoyed themselves. Room. Cleanliness was lacking overall. The temperature is the room was stifling. This must have been known as there was a fan in the room.. something more needs to be done than leaving a fan. We had a small child with us and yet we were given a room in the back of beyond, up a few flights of stairs. Bar service. At the event itself there were two younger members of staff on the bar. Who seems like they would rather be anywhere else in the world than there. The lad would huff and sigh after each order. So much so that it became a talking point! The young lady on the bar was very rude. I asked if there was wine available to order by the glass. Answer 'yes'. Okay what kind do you have. Answer 'red and white'. Okay is it just house or do you have a range. Answer 'yes'. Okay can you tell me what types.... Customer service definitely lacking here. At an event where you are looking to get a fair amount of custom on the bar, placing your best staff here would be beneficial. It's actually depressing me having to relive this for your review. There's more to say, however I left a review when I stayed here for my friends wedding back in may and nothing was different. Nothing.

Good stay needs updating

Samantha I. Families - 28/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The stay itself was very good, the breakfast had a good selection. However the hotel was very tired, needs massive improvements. The rooms were like something from the 1970’s, the bathroom stunk of something very musty and had a broken bath outlet. The carpets dirty, cobwebs and dirt at the windows. The bed was however very comfy and clean so that was a plus. Staff were excellent.

Village located, spacious, friendly, need for refurbishment adds to the charm

LeClubMember99 10/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

I have stayed here annually for decades, primarily because the precise location suits my purposes. The hotel, particularly the exterior including the gardens, is in need of refurbishment, but they ae dependant on whatever income they can get from events such as weddings, and from accommodation. The staff are friendly and helpful, the hotel is airy and spacious, the cooked breakfast is one of the best I have had in my worldwide travels. Choose the Garden View rooms as they have recently been fully refurbished. The staff coped well in the context of Covid, my only comment is that serving utensils for cereals, juices etc. were shared - and no guest or staff wore masks . One thing they abandoned a few years ago is the choice of kippers for breakfast - please bring them back!

Dear LeClubMember99 Thank you for your review. Always a pleasure to read that you have enjoyed your stay and I hope the same for many years to come. best wishes

A most enjoyable stay

Mark S 30/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

I really enjoyed my one-night stay at this hotel which has a lot of characer. In fairness, the place would benefit from some investment but it was a lovely location right next to the village of Willington set in lovely countryside. The Hotel has a lovely garden at the rear and it was great to walk around there on a sunny day with a glass of wine.There are lots of period features including wood-panelling and some of the grandeur of the past. The food was excellent at both dinner and breakfast - and there was plenty of it! The reception team was very friendly and helpful - Toby and newly-recruited Kristina(sp?) really took care of me. Mark and Jose on the bar were brilliant as were the other members of the catering team.

Dear Mark S Thank you for your lovely review. Really pleased to say that our team made your stay a great one. We look forward to welcoming you in the near future. with kind regards

Needs a refurb

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

TonyR1726 Family - 10/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

Overall, we enjoyed our stay (and have been here before). Excellent location. We had a good room, and the facilities were generally good. We like it, and will almost certainly come again. Negative points were - restaurant was closed on the Friday evening we arrived, it's in desperate need of a refurb - worn stair carpets, faded ceilings and so on. And we had to carry cases up three flights of stairs to our room - no lift or porterage. But good value at the price.

Not what you expect from a 4 star hotel!!

Vacation17779520545 Business - 13/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

On arrival, I was greeted at reception by a member of staff who was standing in for his colleague and confirmed he would need to get someone to check me in. The receptionist arrived and check in was painless. I have booked an upgraded room. I was allocated room 110 and was directed to the first floor via the stairs. The carpet was threadbare on the nosing of the stair and was well past its lifespan. The corridors are tired and the carpet has also seen better days. The room itself was disgusting the grey doors are damaged and scratched, the room was freezing, the sofa in the room was stained with all sorts and this was supposed to be a upgraded room. I returned to reception and raised my concerns, I was then allocated room 109 which was better. The check out in the morning was painless and all staff very pleasant. I ordered room service which was prompt and the food really nice so no complaints there. I have stayed in many hotels and this is by far the worst hotel by way of condition I have stayed in.The hotel is tired and requires upgrade in the main areas as well as the rooms, no idea how it is a 4 star hotel.

Dear Vacation 17779520545 Thank you for your comments they are very much appreciated. I have taken on board the points you have raised. Kind regards Wilma
