We went for the New Years Eve meal with a disco and overnight stay. We stayed in a garden room which was perfect for our dog as it has a lovely big garden right outside the door! It was a good sized room and clean. On arrival the room was cold and we couldn't get the radiator to get hot,...

We had our firms Xmas party in this hotel. It was £26.50 per ticket and was quite frankly not the best experience in the world. The starter was a goats cheese tart served on top of a very limp rocket salad. The actual tart had spoonful of cranberry sauce in the bottom with only a couple of slithers of goats...

After reading the mixed reviews my expectations were not high but I was pleasantly suprised. I stayed here on Monday 11th Nov for one night's bed and breakfast plus I also had dinner as I'd had a long journey and the menu looked okay. I felt safe, important for a woman when travelling alone. From start to finish I enjoyed...

Was in poor condition in some areas, the restaurant smelt of urine, like a pub toilet which automatically put me off. Had a look at the menu and was very overpriced. The accommodation was very dated, my Nan's standard back in her day. The tv wasn't tuned in and had no remote. The plus is that there was a bath........

Our youngest daughter lives in the village of Bovingdon, and I am disabled (wheelchair bound) and she has no downstairs bathroom/toilet. The Bobsleigh has rooms suitable for disabled persons and the time and trouble taken by the entire staff was remarkable indeed - well trained and well led, congratulations to Macdonald Hotels in general and the Bobsleigh in particular.

Just as well we went wearing our wedding attire. The organization of the wedding was very good and as far as im aware ran...

Stayed for a short mini-break rather than fighting the m25 on a Friday night.... Myself and my partner paid for bed and breakfast and got a good deal. As the weather was pretty unpleasant we had dinner at the hotel too and were pretty impressed with the food, although the prices are not cheap, the food was well presented, tasty...

This hotel is kept afloat by it's staff and there tremendous efforts to make up for the building shortfalls. MacDonald's Group need to make up their mind in respect to this hotel i.e. knock it down or invest in a major overall and through refurbishment what ever their chose the amount of work needed will require the building to be...

Just spent a Saturday night here after attending a wedding on the premises during the day. The food was reasonable and the staff were ok. The room was clean but really tired with peeling paint, cracks in the ceilings, worn carpets and a run down feel. The view from the room was a flat roof with some air conditioning units....
