Good 7.8 From 674 reviews

Fair 4.0
Hotel very tired, room grubby, stains on carpets, skirting boards filthy. Cracked tiles all around the outside swimming pool with no bar service/any service at all around the pool area which is certainly not expected of a 5 star hotel.

Poor 2.0
Nothing like the pictures!
The hotel that I stayed in is very different to the pictures. First room smelt of damp and complained. The next room bathrooms smelt. The rooms are very low quality, very tired and worn fabrics and furnishings, nothing like the pictures. The bathrooms are very worn and grubby looking. Breakfast was poorly cooked, lack of choice very basic. It was like staying in a 2 star hotel. The staff were nice enough

Great Stay
Had a lovely stay at the MacDonald Spa hotel, staff are very friendly and they are all following the Covid guild lines, and a lovely breakfast with plenty of choice, hotel is set in beautiful grounds which is lovely to walk around
Beverley, gb2 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Lovely hotel, clean and comfortable. Downside expensive drinks which take 20 minutes to turn up, bar supervisor who served us was miserable and the breakfast was well over priced for the amount of food you get, i wouldn't pay more than 4 quid for that breakfast down a cafe

Fair 4.0
The weekend was about having some us time whilst we had no kids the mattresses in the room were really uncomfortable too soft also u couldn’t open the window and the air conditioning only went to 16 so we were in an uncomfortable hot temperature the whole time.going down to the restaurant for dinner we had an allotted time slot and we were told to wait 15 minutes after that time slot then it took ages to be served also the food is very over priced not worth the money especially for the steaks we both had breakfast again was disappointing it was so tasteless overall very disappointed in this spa hotel you would expect more we have been to a few and this is by far the worst

Wish I had read the reviews first!
The person checking us in was very unhelpful; did not give any information on the facilities like where the bar is, where breakfast is, how to use the pool etc, what th covid safe measures were, so we missed out on using facilities and didn't feel confident that the hotel had adequate measures in place. We were told that the only time for breakfast left was 8am - not much of a relaxing Sunday - and that we would need to pay for a tray charge if we wanted it in our room! We were then told that because we didn't book directly, we were not aware of things like this - we would not have paid extra for breakfast had we known. We had to chase round the hotel to find bar staff to order a drink, and then had to argue again with the same person on checkout to get the service charge taken off. I am so disappointed in the service at a supposedly luxury hotel- staff seemed to go out of their way to ignore us and to add extra charges at every opportunity. Considering we paid well over £300 for a small room for one night it was awful value for money and will not stay again.
