I recently attend an Institute Dinner at this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was pleasantly surprised by the food that was served at the dinner, as quite often at these type of functions the food is only of average quality BUT on this occasion it was very good. I enjoyed every course especially the tomato soup and the sea bass main meal. The only down side was that the menu also included coffee or tea at the end of the meal but this however never appeared. Also had a little difficulty parking not enough spaces but I think there was another event on at the hotel apart from ours. Would I go there again. Yes I would. Collapse

I've just returned from a one night stay and can sadly say for sure that I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. When I arrived I had to wait nearly 10 minutes to check in as the only member of staff was on the phone. When I was finally acknowledged I was simply given my key and sent on my way - I understand the receptionist was very busy but I was expecting to be shown where facilities such as the "spa" and restaurant were. The room itself was comfortable and clean but not what I would describe as executive. It's pretty small and I'm fairly certain the bed was a double and not a king size. I can't imagine what the difference is between that and a classic room, other than the bathrobe. It was really hard to get through to reception downstairs because the line was busy but I eventually managed to order a homemade burger and chips from the room service menu - it was soggy and fell apart when I tried to eat it, although I can't fault the taste. I had a very comfortable evening, the wifi connection was great and tv was a good size but sadly when it came to getting some sleep there were several noise issues. Firstly the corridors aren't carpeted so you can hear every footstep outside. Then I was woken by the sound of kitchen staff wheeling trolleys around right outside and then later by a member of staff talking loudly on his mobile phone. They should really be more considerate bearing in mind it was after 11pm and the windows, from what I could tell, are only single glazed. In the morning I was woken around 8am by the fire alarm. Breakfast was ok, nothing to write home about but plenty of space and very comfortable seating. Before checking out I had booked a massage in the spa. I'd gone down dressed as I didn't want to walk across reception in a bathrobe and one wasn't offered to me in the spa until I asked for it. The therapist asked for my preference pressure-wise and initially seemed to understand that I'd said "light" but half way through I had my arms bent behind my back and her elbows being dug into me and this was the final nail in the coffin for my stay at Needham House. I'd arranged late checkout till 1pm but decided to leave before 11. When I explained the issues to reception staff, along with the fact that I'd booked the stay as a treat to cheer myself following a recent bereavement, they were really sympathetic and discounted my room and I really appreciated this. Having read other reviews it seems like we're all feeling let down by the same things - small rooms, corridor noise, being made to wait at reception, uninspiring breakfast and bizarrely, the fire alarm. Therefore I really hope management will be able to address these things as soon as possible for future guests. I would not class this as a 4* service. Collapse

I was put in here on a corporate rate of £85 - some of the hotels around this area are ridiculously pricey. Ok, I guess, the positives were nice location, good menu, reasonable breakfast selection, lovely staff, reliable strong wifi, loads of car parking. Negatives - massive potholes in the driveway and car park, very noisy (door to corridor was locked open and crashed everytime anyone walked through), paper thin wall so I could hear my neighbour snoring. I sense this is more of a conference and wedding facility - would stay again but would ask for a more remote room. Collapse

I went to Needham House Hotel for Sunday lunch with my family and none of us were overly impressed. The service was terrible - repeatedly asking for things (water / starter / dessert) and he food was mediocre at best. It was all very highly seasoned and very buttery. The coffee after was also not nice. It's a shame as it's a great location and the gardens are nice. I wouldn't go back if I could help it Collapse

We were coming over from Belfast for the weekend to visit a friend nearby and got this for a good price. Arrived on Friday evening and checked in quickly. Nice first impressions of the quirky decor in reception. Our friend joined us for a nightcap in the bar before leaving us for the night. 3 drinks were £20.90 - certainly not cheap!! During our drink, the fire alarm went off for a minute but there was no fire. Our room (314) was of a good size with a lovely view, a good size wardrobe, tv etc, small narrow bathroom but I liked the decor. I had a shower before bed and the water ran from hot to very hot so I had to step outside the stream when it was too hot. I used all the small toiletries provided and assumed they'd be replenished the next day. They were not however, which was a shame. Room was quite dull, not enough lights and could've done with a full length mirror. Also, no biscuits at all provided with the tea making facilities and I'm not sure the tea bags were replenished next day either. These are the little things you'd expect to be automatic in a hotel. Bed was comfortable enough to get a good nights sleep but both nights there were weddings so we did hear noise into the early hours from music / guests / doors slamming. Luckily for me I had ear plugs with me, unfortunately my husband did not. We didn't eat at the hotel as we were spending time with friends so cannot comment on that. On departure Sunday morning we had planned a lay in before check out but once again a fire alarm went off early am, seems common after reading other reviews. Also the cleaner had taken away towels and only left one so had to phone for another one. (Had to call 3 times as no one answered phone) This time the shower was unfortunately lukewarm so not the best end to our stay. Overall we were happy enough as we'd got a good deal but if we'd paid the usual hotel rates I wouldn't of been impressed, sorry! Collapse
