We had a great 7 day stay at this hotel. Stacey at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the pool was a delight to use. We had dinner and room service and both were of a high standard. Even though there were a couple of weddings during our stay we...

Absolutely terrible stay, room is tired and dilapidated, it also had a distinct smell of damp or pee...the bathroom was also falling to pieces and the fan did not work. There was a wedding and a 50th party going on simultaneously, upon returning from visiting family with our sleeping toddler, we were heckled rudely by drunk guests smoking outside the...

My wife and I wanted to treat her brother and his wife to 'afternoon tea', and found The Best Western Hotel at Marks Tey offered a menu that attracted our tummies! We booked a table for 4 around 1.30pm and were taken to a perfect position where we could enjoy looking out the large windows. The restaurant had around 20...

The fitness facilities are great, lovely pool, sauna and steam room and well equipped gym. However it is the gym staff that make it, all so friendly and professional, especially Tom. Nothing is too much trouble and always a smile.

We were so pleased with all aspects of our stay last Christmas when we stayed at Marks Tey that we have just booked again for 2 nights this year. Thank you Kirsty for your excellent customer service. We look forward to another wonderful festive weekend. :)

We had a very whistle-stop stay here arriving very late and then leaving next morning. Staff were great, a lot friendlier and more helpful than a lot of hotels. There was a good choice at breakfast, room was spotless. Perfectly functional. I chose this hotel for location and it was great for us. The rooms were very quiet too.

I really detest writing reviews due to the pace of our lives, however I felt this was a must. If running a hotel was based solely on the Marks Tey hotel then the industry would be in trouble. We recently stayed there for a 40th birthday celebration and from booking to leaving were met with incompetence. My wife booked the...

Our visit coincided with two weddings taking place. As the room was located on the first floor corridor near the main part of the hotel we were woken up many times by wedding guests going back to their rooms, shouting and slamming doors in the early hours of the morning. The hotel should recognise that those who are not involved...

Oh dear, what a disappointment. I rarely feel the need to write a negative review however this was such a bad experience I felt the need to share. Arrived at the Marks Tey Hotel for a one night getaway, had booked it due to its 4 star rating & swimming pool. On arrival the car park was swamped with a...
