I would appreciate if someone would reply to my 2 emails that I have sent to the hotel manager regarding my stay at your hotel last weekend, there was no heating in our room we reduced the thermostat down to 21 as advised but still did not work,the guy on reception provided us with a small heater but we had to turn off after a while as it made our throats very dry and obviously these heaters are not designed for room use,we were absolutely freezing and barely slept as we were so cold, I informed the guy on reception at checkout of this and he said he was only authorised to deduct 20% off our room rate but would inform the manager of our very disappointing experience,I feel this was an unacceptable gesture as it totally ruined our stay and feel very upset as this was a very special occasion.

Lovely staff

Happy P. Families - 15/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed here for a couple of nights after attending our son's wedding. Staff looked after us very well despite having to adhere to strict Covid restrictions (never eaten so many 'subsrantial' meals in order to have a celebratory drink!) Room was in the stable block and was very comfortable with a beautiful bathroom and great shower. The heating could have been turned up a notch and you definitely need curtains on the window as there's no privacy during the day when the blind is up. All in all, a great stay over a very special weekend. Particular thanks to bar & restaurant staff. We would return again without hesitation.

Covid Restrictions Made the Experience Poor

P. Couples - 15/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Cold, no atmosphere, no music, lack of communication with the booking team and no resources to make our stay a good one. We would have preferred not to waste our voucher here!

Dining room very cold as was the breakfast.

Everywhere very clean, staff very helpful, our room was good and the bed comfortable. But, the restaurant was very cold and the very nice breakfast barely warm. Shame as the breakfast was well cooked.

Well located hotel for Harry Potter

Customer review rating 3.6/5

Candida B. Solo - 12/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

This time I travelled by myself for my Harry Potter trip. It was good to see more staff available at reception and that they are easy to locate if needed. I had a room upgrade which was warm,clean and comfortable. We had to wait in a cold corridor to be seated for breakfast as there were no staff available. A hotel guest went to reception to ask for help and the waitress then came out from the kitchern area. I feel that maybe to have two staff members at this time, as they used to have, one waitress does not appear to be enough for the breakfast rush. I still miss the breakfast buffet, my breakfast arrived and I enjoyed it all. Another great stay at this lovely hotel.

A great stay again for my Harry Potter trip.

This time I travelled by myself and went to Harry Potter. I was pleased to note that there are more staff at reception and they are very easy to locate if needed. I had a room upgrade which was a wonderful suprise. My one night stay was great and my room was clean,warm and comfortable. We had to wait in a cold corridor before we could be seated in the dining room for breakfast as there were no staff present. Another guest went to reception to inform them of this and then the waitress appeared from the kitchen and seated us. I still miss the bufffet breakfast, but I didnt have to wait too long for my breakfast to arrive. I enjoy walking around the grounds of the hotel and a great hotel to stay for visitng Harry Potter.

Many thanks for your fantastic review. I am so delighted to hear that you enjoyed such a great stay. We do hope to be able to return to a full buffet breakfast offering in the New Year once restrictions are lifted but I am pleased to hear that you were able to enjoy all of the usual full English options plated from the kitchen and that this was delivered promptly. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back to Hunton Park very soon. Best Regards, Ian

Desmond Couples - 08/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Where do I start. Normally give the benefit of the doubt. Had read reviews which were not too good. Room was very small although we upgraded Holes in the wall Bed frame was visually ripped It took hours to get more toilet roll. Had to call reception numerous times The list continues

Over charged me. Zero customer service.

Andrea Business - 07/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was misinformed of the hotel I was booking. I arrived to the hotel where I didnt have my reservation. The lady told me to cancel my booking and I would get a refund and to pay again at reception although it was more expensive. The next day the reception told me that they had no idea and that they couldnt refund and it was up to the other hotel and that he will double check with his colleague. In the end I had to get booking.com to sort this out which they did kindly and efficiently unlike the staff at this hotel. Never staying again.

Shelby M. Couples - 04/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very difficult and unsatisfactory experience. I booked via email, and as requested, I called up to provide my bank details. I was told I would then receive confirmation of my booking, but this was not received. I called on the day of the booking and after initially being told by Reservations that they couldn’t find my booking and being on hold for 10 mins, I was able to confirm my booking. On arrival, I was told they didn’t have my card details? That was just the beginning. Room service was overpriced considering it looked and tasted like frozen meals just put in the oven (pizza, and salt and pepper squid). We had no hot water on the second night - we were told there were issues with the boiler in the morning but it should have been fine by the evening. It was not. There was no atmosphere in the hotel. Dinner in the bar was ok, except for the news on the television downstairs competing with the bar music. We were told we needed to book a 50 min slot to use the pool - we were assured it would be just us and they used the 10 min between bookings to clean the area. We were therefore very surprised when we turned up for our booking that there were two other groups in the pool at the same time.

Disappointing

Anonymous Families - 02/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The photo on website shows beautiful old house. We were put in a souless, unwelcoming COLD annex. No lift which made it difficult to carry luggage when you have bad knees.

Good location & pleasant stay.

Harry P. Families - 02/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

After our long drive down & a fantastic afternoon at the Warner Brothers studio. We arrived at the hotel around 7pm & there was plenty of parking. Staff on reception were very friendly & helpful. Rooms were a good size, clean, nice size bathroom & a pleasant comfy bed. In the morning we went for a swim in the pool, which was clean & decent size. Got back to our rooms & enjoyed our late checkout before the long drive home.

Superior room far from superior

Customer review rating 3.6/5

Emma Couples - 28/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed on Sunday night, specifically booked a superior room as it was a treat to be away from the kids, the room we were put in was the same doom I booked last year as a standard. It was freezing cold as the window didn’t shut properly, the bed was a tiny 4ft 6 double, the carpet was full of stains and there was nowhere to sit other than the bed. We asked what made this room superior, we couldn’t get a satisfactory answer, we asked to move to be told all superior rooms have sold out (although still bookable on the website at that point) the duty manager offered to move us to a standard room and refund the difference, we did move and the room was much nicer considering it was supposed to be a downgrade. We have still been charged the full price for a superior room not happy. Shame as we have stayed regularly in the past.

Excellent Stay

Mick Couples - 26/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

This was a previously cancelled booking for April, due to Covid-19 lockdown. But from extending our voucher, to rebooking and staying at the hotel, this was a fabulous experience. The room, though a little on the small side, was very clean and well equipped. We made use of the pool twice during our stay through a booking system, which meant we had it to ourselves. All of the staff were first class, professional, helpful and polite. The dinner and breakfast were also of a very high standard and the service exemplary (with particular praise to Natasha our waitress). We would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again and would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you for everything.

Anniversary stay

Amanda V. Couples - 25/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a one night stay for our wedding anniversary and it was lovely. Room was clean but a little on the small side. We had the swimming pool to ourselves for an hour which was lovely, shame there was no jacuzzi. We had a 3 course evening meal which was lovely and so filling.
