Great spot to stay

Review of Bush Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Mar 2024via mobile
I stopped here for two nights what a pleasant surprise the hotel sits in the Main Street but had private parking at the rear. The place is immaculate my room appeared to be new or at least newly decorated which is unusual considering the problems Covid brought to us all. food was great and the Guinness good will stop again if I travel through here again
Date of stay: March 2024
Room Tip: A lift is available quite a few stairs but lots of rooms

We attended a family funeral lunch on 10 Feb, about 40 people. The lunch was substantial and delicious, with a quick service that was second-to-none. So welcome also was the friendly attention of the staff. We were impressed with the sensitive restoration of this traditional hotel, set in a main street of character in a delightful town.

I've been coming to the Bush Hotel for many years at this stage. It changed owners last year so was concerned that standards might drop. On a visit earlier in the year it seemed that the hotel was, in common with the majority of the hospitality sector, struggling to get staff so there was a slight wobble in the service level in the restaurant. That had me go the the other large hotel in town for a couple of visits but I have to say that the rooms in that hotel were not as comfortable or suitable for working. The rooms in the Bush are spacious and well lit - the desk area has local lighting as well so it's very easy to get work done. Beds are very comfortable - the mattresses were brand new - and all beds have USB charging points next to them. The room had a, decent sized, Android smart TV which meant that I was able to cast to the TV from my tablet and phone (Netflix etc. are available on the TV if you want to sign in). Breakfast was very good with hot and continental options available. There are two EV changing points available in the hotel car park (I was originally told there was a - very reasonable - charge for these but on checkout I was told that they were free for guests - either way it represented excellent value) - a service that a surprisingly large number of hotels still fail to provide. Staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient.

All in all, I was very satisfied with the visit and will, most certainly, be returning.

We had our wedding party here and I cannot say enough for the wonderful staff and experience. Nothing was too much trouble, staff were excellent with our younger guests too. The food was brilliant and served in a very timely fashion. Everything was attended to promptly and very courteously and I’d like to extend another huge thank you to Laura and all the team for looking after us so well.

This is the lowest review I’ve had to give but feel its fair to give this feedback to both the hotel & fellow travellers. We have been coming here the last few years for family occasions as we live locally & food, service & atmosphere was always 100%

Visited on Sunday for another family occasion & we were all disappointed with the quality of the roast dinners, the slow service & atmosphere. It was very quiet yet the food was slow to arrive & was not great quality. The bar was full of empty glasses and the limited staff on we’re working hard as they could. Its very obvious the hotels priorities are with the refugee guests as they can be spotted around the place. We wont be back!

Room tip: Avoid completely
