Disappointing. Poorly sign-posted so we all got lost. Not really a hotel , more like a upmarket hostel with bench seating for dinner and breakfast. Both meals were poor and made from the cheapest ingredients. Room small and dated but clean. Not good value.

This is a 4-star rated resort, but it’s certainly 5-star if you happen to be a shareholder. This is a slick operation that leaves no stone unturned when it comes to squeezing every last bit of profit from its customers. We booked the Xmas party for our company at £50 per head - my expectations of Xmas meals is not high which was as well, as the single-option school dinner was about as basic as it comes, & the table wine, even the Prosecco, was really terrible. We still managed to enjoy the occasion inspite of the fare on offer, although our employees might suffer a hangover if they bought their own drinks, which were exorbitantly priced. (I queried the £5 bill for ‘bar food’ which turned out to be 2 scoops of salted peanuts, which would be complimentary anywhere else). We stayed in the Waterfront hotel which had a pleasant room with a good shower. Unfortunately we stayed for breakfast. If you like a cooked breakfast then brace yourself for a greasy fry-up that would embarrass a transport cafe. You could always opt for porridge, but don’t if you normally enjoy porridge. The coffee tasted cheap & bitter. The fruit & yoghurt option was the only part that I could recommend. All in all, very poor food; zero value for money; but a nice room & friendly staff.

This is the 21st present for my girlfriend it started off well when we checked in with the staff, but slowly became a weekend that I definitely can't call value for money. Food - Lack of options! we had dinner as part of the package on a Friday, we ordered the Moroccan couscous. When it came out the halloumi was stone cold, I politely asked them to warm it up and they took it back to the kitchen. When they brought it back they heated up the rice but the halloumi was still cold. I told them to take it back and asked them for the soup as I was hungry. I then ordered the steak and asked for peppercorn sauce. I asked for the steak rare it was completely blue and the peppercorn sauce was lukewarm. I decided to order another bottle of wine to accompany my steak (that was still mooing at me) because alcohol was the only suitable condiment that could relinquish the thunder cloud slowly forming above my head! I then eat the sticky toffee pudding, not a bad shout can't complain about that part but who can.... its a dessert. Lunch the next day - The decor area and general management were ok, I was expecting a nice lakeside view which we did have apart from the nice can of cider which was planted in the pot but I think i would be picky if I were to say it was not nice. The only problem is the lack of options. One of the desserts was sticky toffee pudding which we had the night before and the soup was amazing apart from it was used again for the evening meal? Frustrating as I felt like I'm forced to pay supplement charges to order nice food as the meals which are included in the package are used in lunch as well. Second Evening meal - The waiter was ok he came out with a complimentary bottle of wine which was nice of him and I decided to order the Moroccan couscous again the rice was warm and side halloumi cold.... again. The cloud was storming above my head and I was going to make it rain on the management but decided against it because it's my girlfriends 21st and honestly, I can't be asked. Spa - The spa was ok we had a good time in there but something had to go wrong. My girlfriend and I decided to go for a couples massage. As we waited I was called out singularly to accompany one of the therapists into the room for a singles massage??. I started walking with her but was confused as I thought my girlfriend would be tailing behind me. I made her aware that she was wrong and I booked a couples massage, she looked at me bewildered like a rabbit in headlights and after an awkward uneasy pause, she made the executive decision to sort the room out for us and TALK to the other therapist to arrange us to eventually have the couples massage. Alas, the incompetence was mimicked by the counterpart therapist as she entered the room and asked for Nadia to come for a massage.... by the way, Nadia rhymes with my girlfriend's name, Followed by another 5-minute conversation on how we booked the wrong massage. This is not the case as I contacted the reception directly and asked for a couple's massage. The actual massage was good but I spent 25 minutes in an unrelaxed state after all the messing around. Equality - I paid a small fortune to stay at wyboston lakes, I booked what I thought would be the best of the best for my girlfriends 21st. Whilst in the spa we were sat next to a lovely couple staying in 299, we were 301. They had a lovely time, as they entered the restaurant the couple gave them free prossecu as a gesture for there birthday, My girlfriend and I didn't. The couple was ecstatic with there stay and said that I wouldn't believe how kind the staff was to them that it was there birthday, they explained that they paid for a superior twin but were upgraded to a deluxe double FOR FREE. They were both so happy with this. They got this because it was there birthday!!! The lovely couple asked us why we were there, I explained our reasoning and the irony that we were here for birthdays too, and did not receive what they did. Their faces dropped, they could clearly see that despite being in a sauna Steam was protruding from my ears but I bit my tongue and carried on with our (not so) lovely stay. Conclusion - What can I say I'm completely put off English Hospitality next time ill spend the same amount of money and take her to a proper spa abroad.

I stayed at the resort for one night. The very clean room was well laid out, but a bit small. Good room service ordered via an Ipad in the room. The breakfast service was very good and efficient. Plenty of choice and nicely displayed. I arrived at 7.30 pm. in the dark, which made the signage in the resort very difficult to read to find the hotel as there are numerous buildings in the large resort

I have stayed at the Wyboston Lakes Resort on a number of occasions. I've stayed at The Willow's Training Centre where I feel about 100 years old, as it's full of kids on training courses and I've stayed at The Woodlands Event Centre which seems a tad bit more mature. It depends on where my company booking people put me. If you are given a choice I would always ask for the Woodlands, as the atmosphere is more adult, there is a better choice of food and the rooms are much more spacious and comfortable.
