An old Listed building that needs modernisation but very friendly. The rooms were large, breakfast was good and it had a large bar. It had a magnificent staircase and the place was very clean. It does not do Evening Meals. Located 2 minutes from the Town Centre. The adjacent car park is huge but you need to get a free...

Built in a time, mid 1800 when Ashby was a spa town with a new railway station to bring visitors. The spa building long gone and so have the visitors. The hotel is grade 2 listed, so my sympathy is with the current owner. The place needs major investment to restore it to its forma glory. However at 35 rooms...

Didn't choose to stay here but as the only place in town with availability it was thrust upon us. At £60 including breakfast I wasn't expecting and on arrival it was clear this hotel hadn't seen any royalty for quite some time nor alas a painter and decorator. To put it politely this hotel is a little 'down at the...

Crikey... Booked for one night business trip as the business was close by. Extremely dated, tired and desperately needs a refurb. The place is ancient, not dirty but seriously not seen a hotel in this shape before. Car park is pay and display but you get a card to display from reception. Breakfast was poor, luke warm and cold cooked...

Didn't bother to stay the night booked. Horrified by the two rooms offered!! Beds,deco and furnishing could have been retrieved from a skip, at best!! Staff looked embarrassed, but were obliging!!!! Nothing more to say Booking.com should not be advertising such a down trodden accommodation!!!
