No water in the morning for showering or toilet . Room was very dated, dirty carpet, cobwebs, peeling and marked paintwork, musty pillows and cushions and window seat pad were marked . The room and bathroom was disappointing and needed redecorating and updating . This place has good function rooms but lets itself down where the basics of cleanliness and comfort are ignored . Breakfast was good . Collapse

I arrived at the hotel and booked in with no problems at all. Put my stuff in a very dated room with some mould on the mastic around the bath. Went to the bar and ordered a beer, found the staff very friendly and accommodating. I then ordered my food at 18.00, at 18.50 it hadn’t arrived, after asking twice where it was. I was then told at 19.00 they hadn’t put the order through. I informed them that I no longer wanted it, and to remove it from the bill. I went to the local pub less than a 150 metres away ordered my food, my drink and was out of there in less than 45 minutes. Fantastic food, great service. Highly recommend this as an eating place if you choose to stay at the Haycock. I then finally got to spend time in my room to be greeted by a remote for the tv that did not work. That took another 30 minutes to sort out. I come to these places to unwind at the end of a days work not add to the stress. There are other hotels close by you really don’t need to stay here Collapse

We booked the Haycock Hotel because my partner had stayed there some years before and said it was wonderful. What a shock to find this shabby, outdated hotel instead! I cannot even offer it the romance of faded grandeur, it is just pure neglect. Our room was big enough but gloomy with broken safety catch on the window, unfilled holes in the walls, broken lampshade etc. The bathroom looked like it was last renovated in the 1970's and there was mouldy grouting in the tiles. Outside there were dead plants in the pots at the hotel main entrance, cigarette butts and best of all a used nappy sack on the ground, which was there when we arrived and still there the next morning when we left! Having read some of the other reviews on here I am relieved we booked room only and didn't sample the food. What a shame as this was clearly once a beautiful hotel, with a history that deserves greater care. Collapse

Let me be clear. I am not a fan of the MacDonald hotel chain having experienced terrible service, facilities and food over the years. It was a brave decision out of necessity to try the Haycock for a quick lunch en route north. Initial impressions confirmed my worst fears of yet another underinvested asset as the rooms and WC all very tired. However credit to the staff as they did try hard to provide a warm welcome and friendly service. We ordered tomato soup (£6.50) which was served hot, tasty and plentiful but the bread roll was so hard as to be inedible. The supervisor took these rolls away and returned with chef's apologies and a much better offer of olive ciabatta buns which were warm and delicious. Of course by this time our soup had turned cold but there was no offer of replacement. We followed with a Goats cheese mousse, beetroot carpaccio and pomegranate dressing which was a good contrast of textures and flavours but a tiny helping, Total costs with 2 bottles of sparkling water = £26.47 without any service charge. The real advantage of this hotel is that it so accessible to and from the A1 - otherwise I am sure better alternatives can be found Collapse
Very dated, Very Tired and not the usual MacDonald standard.

It was clear from the start that our presence was a bit of a nuisance. The only question we were asked at reception was - ‘Did we want an early morning call ? No mention of meal times or where meals were to be taken. Our Dining experience was to be in the bar. I asked for a soft drink and I was asked if I wanted a glass - I suppose it avoids washing up ! Our room was supposed to be on the third floor but there was no lift . We were reallocated to a first floor room which could possibly have been a single but I will give them the benefit of the doubt- thankfully I haven’t got a cat to swing! The bar meal was really quite nice but no effort was made to clean the table for us and we could tell what had been eaten by previous table users. Fawlty Towers kept coming to mind and that allowed us to appreciate the situation. It’s a shame really because we deliberately chose a MacDonald Hotel because they are usually so good- this isn’t one of them. Collapse
