Last minute booking for one night, booked direct after checking on comparison site. Very friendly staff who went oust of their way to help, room with ensuite, clean and spacious, good supply of coffee and tea. Only had breakfast as needed to book for evening meal, good choice of cerials, porridge, cooked and toast. Staff attentive to your needs.

We stayed in the annexe, which provided very poor accommodation. The rooms had stains on the carpet and furniture that had not been replaced since the 1980s or earlier. But the main problem was that the building was extremely noisy. Creaking floorboards, banging doors and noisy water pipes meant that a good night's sleep was nigh on impossible. Staff were...

I didn't realise on booking that Sidholme is a Christian Guild Hotel offering a variety of 'themed activity breaks' and 'stay as you please' options. The Georgian mansion set in 9 acres of landscaped grounds offers a warm welcome and daily prayers in the magnificent music room with its gothic style organ if you choose. It's very much a do...

We felt it was well past its “sell by date” and in serious need of redecoration! We felt we were in an institution with lounges akin to an old peoples home. I had to search high and low to get a decent WIFI connection. Our room was at the back and suffered from noise and smells from the kitchens so...
