    Waverley castle horrendous hotel

    I acknowledge that the building is old and this restricts lay out. However the use of extension cables in bedroom at head board I consider dangerous and possible fire hazard. The rooms windows restriction meant no breeze air conditioner not available. Room uncomfortable heat excessive, apparently the heat is from the hot water system pipes. I would avoid this hotel at all costs.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Dirty room and terrible food.

    We understood when we stayed at Waverly castle that it was at the cheaper end of the market but this really wasn't up to modern standards expected of a hotel. We have stayed at many premier inns etc...and they are far superior. The room had a huge red stain in the corner of the room that they seemed to be unaware of when we told the receptionist at check out! And it was generally pretty grubby. We were late arriving so had dinner in the hotel which was like bad school dinners. The breakfast was expensive £18 per person for mouldy fruit and dry cooked items. It really wasnt value for money and I wouldn't recommend staying here.

    Nice place & people but needs more cleaning

    Staff were nice. Room was a good size. Disappointed that despite the notices about additional cleaning being done due to pandemic, there was still rubbish left over from previous guests on bedside table and the remote control, kettle (frequently touched items) were grubby. Remote was covered in dust - which made me doubt the cleanliness of the rest of the room.

    Enjoyable mini break

    Really enjoyed our one night stay. Breakfast really nice, evening meal included in the deal below my personal expectations although the sweet was to die for. Would stay again.

    clean and friendly

    nice big room and comfy bed. The hotel is very big and old and some updating on decor required but clean and friendly. Breakfast served late 8am so if on business may mean you have to miss it.
