On arrival we were welcomed by the friendly reception staff and shown to our room in the annexe. We had thought this might be a modern addition but was pleased to see the accommodation was in the same style as the hotel. Ample tea, coffee and shortbread was a considerate touch. The modern bathroom had lovely illuminated mirror. Situated a... More

Despite the title Of my review we really like this venue having visited some 30 years ago. The only change was up graded bedrooms and bathrooms and a glass Conservatory. They have moved the bar but traffic was quite slow. We did not have dinner as the menu was a little stuffy and slightly expensive, as was the accommodation. However... More

Staff were lovely- very friendly and helpful, hotel is very clean and well cared for, our room was comfortable and thankfully not ridiculously hot! (Just lacking enough tea bags. 2 for an overnight stay seems a bit meagre). Good points- coeliac... More

We stayed here for one night when going to a show at the opera house which is only 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. Check in was easy and quick. The room was well furnished and spotlessly clean. A good sized modern bathroom. We had a bar meal which couldn't be faulted and breakfast also was high standard. A special... More

I was very satisfied with my stay at the Lee Wood hotel, which was both peaceful and relaxing, qualities that are important to me. My room was spacious, clean and well-maintained, as was the hotel generally, and I found the hotel staff welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was excellent and so too was the service. I cannot think of any... More

We stayed the weekend of the 22nd October. The hotel is a nice walk from the town and we decided not to eat in the hotel, as we had seen some lovely restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable, we were in the annexe and when we came back in the afternoon on the 2nd day there was no heating... More
