Park Head Hotel & Restaurant
Nice hotel
Every thing was very good

Park Head Hotel & Restaurant
Budget Hotel
I stayed in this hotel with my elderly mother to visit family. A no-frills hotel that has so much potential. The staff and service were excellent, although a little disorganised at times. The evening meal and breakfast were good. The decor throughout was tired. All areas are desperately in need of a refresh. We booked a courtyard room. The windows were in poor condition and the shower hose leaking. The room, bedding and towels were all clean. There was an iron, hairdryer, tv and tea making facilities. There seemed to be a large group of contractors staying which meant there were often large groups of men in the courtyard area and on the two nights we stayed they were up drinking in this area until quite late. Whilst it was cheap and functional I don't think I would book this hotel again.

Find a diffferent hotel
I stayed here because of the good reviews on this site. Not being disrespectful but they cant have stayed in many hotels. This was not a good hotel. Needing major works and decoration. The courtyard rooms with drafts blowing through gaps in doors and badly fitting windows was shocking. Dread to think what this is like in winter. Food poor. was clearly reheated and not cooked from fresh. Wifi poor. My phone was faster. The premier inn would have been better

A must stay
We stayed outside in the courtyard chalets which were very spacious and clean. The hotel is very reasonably priced. The food in the hotel was lovely. Would definitely stop there again. All the staff were very helpful

Park Head Hotel & Restaurant
Great place for the price
Very comfortable beds. Could use new carpeting and lino, and, like most UK hotels, more electric sockets. On the other hand, the service is outstanding and the staff are friendly. Always stay here when I need to be in the area. 😊
