We recently visited the Haycock with a gift voucher, for afternoon tea. We had some lovely sandwiches, and 'finger' cakes and treats. Plenty to eat, was stuffed, and we had hardly eaten before hand. The tea was very good quality, a 'bag' but still a fine quality tea. The cakes were lovely. The chocolate one was amazing chocolate and the lemon one was very very lemony. The scones were warm and really soft and light. I asked for a coffee after as well, and it was part of the package. I am very fussy with my black coffee.Most places don't do it strong enough for me, but theirs was divine. I would certainly recommend them. At the time it would have been £17.95 each. Service was also very good. Very smart people, and lovely surroundings too. Collapse

My husband and I booked one of their feature rooms (the one with the mezzanine) to celebrate our wedding anniversary.. It was £168 for one night (breakfast was extra) so we expected a little bit of luxury. What we got was a tired and dirty room where the furniture looked as it it had all been bought at a charity furniture warehouse (no disrespect to charity furniture warehouses). Nothing matched and all were in poor condition with scratches to surfaces. The headboard on our bed was so loose that we could move it back and forth easily. The bathroom door wouldn't stay shut. There was a ceiling light overlooking the dark corner where the kettle was. We looked and looked for the switch to operate it - eventually we found it IN the wardrobe! Who the hell puts a light switch in a wardrobe? There was also a ceiling light in the wardrobe but that didn't work. The window overlooked a flat roof where the vent from the kitchens came out. It looked a mess as it seemed as if someone had taken a sledgehammer to the unit. The smell was also pretty bad so no open window and it was hot in the room. On the plus side, there was an air con unit so full marks there. Unfortunately it was pretty noisy so couldn't have that going all night. Another thing was that they were hosting a wedding that night and our room seems to have been on top of the celebrations, at least that's how it sounded and felt. No mention of a wedding taking place was mentioned when I booked the room. I was hoping that it would end about midnight and must have eventually drifted off shortly before then only to be woken by the fire alarm going off at 12.20am. Desperately struggling into some pjs we came down from our room into the courtyard to find it empty - where were all the other guests? After a few minutes the manager came to tell us that one of the wedding guests had been vaping in the toilets and set the alarm off. Not the fault of the hotel but just one more annoying thing. As we fell back into bed I thought at least it will be quiet now as the wedding is over - no such luck. The thump of the base started up again and eventually finished at 1pm and was then followed by lots of car doors slamming and people shouting. Ok, I could have complained then to the reception but I hadn't spotted the phone on the small table tucked away in the corner (don't they usually have the phone by the bed?) and didn't feel like making another appearance in my pjs. Apparently no one else complained about the noise. Maybe it was because the main hotel rooms were across the courtyard or maybe it was because most of the other guests were at the wedding - I don't know. My husband by now had found some ear plugs and had managed to nod off and I eventually joined him. At least I can have a lie in tomorrow morning, I thought. No such luck as the kitchen vent came on at 6.50am and woke me up. I got up and noticed that a note had been pushed under our door. It was from the hotel management apologizing for the false fire alarm and thanking us for our 'corporation'! There was one full stop in the letter and it came in the middle of a sentence. We got ready to go and asked the manager to come to our room to address our complaints. He just stood there listening and going bright red in the face I almost felt sorry for him. 'We could have complained about the noise last night'. True but I wasn't thinking straight at the time and didn't spot the phone. The room was due for a refurbishment. Overdue, I would say. Eventually he asked us to meet him back at reception in 5 mins which we did. He offered 25% off our stay or a free return stay (no chance matey). My husband suggested £100 for the night, which he immediately agreed to. I'm sure that he couldn't wait for us to go and we couldn't wait to go either. We won't be going back. Collapse

The room we were in had not been cleaned properly, when they re cleaned this it still was not done properly. The room did not have a lock on the bathroom door and would not stay shut. In the bathroom there was no where to hang anything, so when you got out of the shower you had to walk across the room to the radiator which. Was the only place for the towels. We had afternoon tea booked and I feel that the bread used for the sandwiches were a little stale, the experience was not that good really. For the price of the stay I would expect a lot more it was very dated and in need of a big redecoration and upgrade. The carpet in the room was very stained. Collapse

We recently stayed at this hotel for a wedding reception that we attended. I had to book 2 seperate rooms as their disabled rooms do not cater for families. So my sons had to have the room next door (without an interconnecting door for us to check on him). The disabled room we were given had twin beds, was very small, the bathroom smelt and was not especially adapted for disabled apart from some hand rails. The room keys were like regular house keys with a huge tag on them (not easy to put into an evening bag at all). The beds were extremely hard, the walls extremely thin (we could actually hear another guest urinating in their room - without flushing after). For us to access our room (with wheelchair) we had to walk through another wedding reception. So apologies for whomever the bridal party was in that room. The drinks were extremely expensive (3 drinks costing £15), the breakfast in the morning wasn't nice - the scrambled eggs were sloppy, the toast cold, the bacon needed more cooking. The parking was a joke - how are wheelchair users supposed to get across gravel? In summary I would never recommend this hotel and I certainly will never go back. £210 for one night stay for 3 of us, which none of us had any sleep - not worth it. Collapse

On arrival at The Haycock,we followed the signs to the disabled car park,only to find a delivery lorry blocking the entrance and with no driver in sight,we parked opposite.It was difficult for my husband to push his walker over the gravel,but we made our way to the entrance.We passed the disabled bay and were disappointed to find only two of the cars parked there ,were displaying blue badges.There were plenty of places in the area where we had parked,so no excuses.We were welcomed as we entered and shown into the bar area ,to our table.We were offered a choice of teas and coffees,before our tea arrived.Our selection of sandwiches and cakes arrived on a slate plate, comprising of four sandwiches and four cakes each.Ifelt a little underwhelmed,as I expected a more colourful selection ,presented on a tiered stand.The selection of fillings was good,but the bread was a little dry.The cakes lacked colour and the scones ,again a little dry.Overall,the experience was disappointing ,as was the outside area.With the grounds The Haycock stands in ,it has so much potential ,but it lacked the colour a few potted plants and flowers could have given.Overall,The Haycock inside looked tired and in need of refurbishment.
