We stayed at the Best Western Marks Tey Hotel for one night. It was a special offer which was cheap and including breakfast. What a brilliant stay. The room and bathroom were clean and had white fluffy towels (new not thread bare!). Every where in the hotel was clean and inviting. We used the bar (very helpful barman). And the restaurant. Excellent. Thank you.

Hotel well placed off the motorway, due to working didn't see many staff, but had a friendly welcome from receptionist (blonde girl). Special request for our booking was met and a personalised letter given to us upon check in. Some may say the hotel is dated, but it's a hotel with character as Best Westerns are. Hotel has access to gym and pool until around 7pm. Room was clean and spacious. Also we had a welcome gift in our rooms upon arrival.

No one in the bar to serve, no one in the restaurant as it’s closed for an unexplained reason, no one in reception to ask. People sat in the bar complaining about the food they did get. The menu says Room Service menu in the bar. Manager seems to be dressed as a builder.

Such a poor hotel, rooms shabby dated and not serviced! Staff surly, inexperienced and couldn’t care less attitude. Bar staff very poor long wait to be served and bar often unattended for several minutes. Tables in bar area dirty! Hotel is a COVID haven! Food is actually ok but waiting staff on evening extremely poor and even attend tables chewing food to take your order. Would never stay here again and certainly would never recommend!!! Just awful awful awful
