"Good value clean hotel but lacks atmosphere."

09/01/2019

The Watermill has a lot of good features, the river running through the hotel complex is really nice. The rooms where really clean and tidy and well appointed. The decoration throughout the hotel is pretty dated and there is no atmosphere in the bar area, no music, no TV. Staff were friendly, so nothing to complain about there :)

"New Years Eve Party"

04/01/2019

We went to this New Year's event two years ago as well, it was a great night out then, but now it has even improved even further. The food was very good, well prepared and served hot and tasty. Table decoration was excellent, and the room also nicely decorated, free glass of prosecco on arrival and at midnight and the drinks on the evening were very well priced, especially the wine. Easy parking, friendly staff, a good disco and it seemed all enjoyed the night. The new management certainly tried hard to deliver and succeeded at a very good value price; we will be going again.

We stayed one night at this hotel when visiting family in the area. The staff were friendly and helpful when required. The room was clean although could do with some TLC (end of the curtain was off the rail) but overall we were satisfied and would stay here again.

Comfortable, clean room, comfortable bed. Despite being on a main road it was very quiet and peaceful thus ensuring a good nights sleep. A good breakfast to set you on your way. Whilst not a 'Buffet' breakfast the service was quick. It is nice to sit outside in the summer and the bar/restaurant area is cosy in winter.

Stayed for 1 night while visiting Harry Potter world. Had room service as my daughter wasn't very well and it take a long time to come but when it did it was very nice. Ciril who fetched our food was very friendly.

"Christmas Party Venue"

11/12/2018

Took a party of 35 people to there Christmas Party Night, with not one negative comment. Staff, amenities and venue all very good. Food very good and bar facilities more than adequate. If you are thinking of off a venue I recommend this one.

"One night at the Watermill Hotel"

03/12/2018

This hotel has an interesting layout, a main building with reception, restaurant and bar plus some rooms and then several 2 storey outside buildings - no lifts and no covered walkway from the main reception to the outside buildings so not so nice in the rain or if you have lots of luggage! I was in a spacious non smoking twin room at the very end of a 2nd floor corridor in one of the outer buildings so it was very quiet and comfortable but the room definitely smelt of smoke although this could have been in the fabric of the room and from long ago. The bathroom had a full size bath with a shower over it so check facilities if you have mobility problems and need a walk in shower. Plenty of car parking available at the front of the hotel and outside each of the out buildings. Arrived in the dark and left in the dark so I didn't get to see the grounds or the river which I believe are a feature.

"Fawlty Towers"

03/12/2018

Wish I'd checked the reviews before booking a room here for two nights to attend a family wedding being held there. Hotel looked lovely but the warning signs were there at check in when the receptionist had problems activating the room keys. We settled into our room which at first glance looked okay until that is we decided to have a sleep in the afternoon (we'd been travelling since 5.00am). When my husband turned over the bed collapsed! On closer inspection one of the legs had sheared off and had been crudely repaired! When we reported this we were immediately given another room but it was obvious the staff were aware of the problem. The new room was certainly bigger than the previous one but after a horrendous night with little sleep and sore backs in the morning we weren't looking forward to a second night there. Things got worse when we went for breakfast. We were asked if we wanted a cooked breakfast to which we said yes but after my husband had finished his cereal. He was half way through his cereal when the said cooked breakfast was plonked down in front of us without us even being asked what we wanted to eat. At this point we decided enough was enough and we managed to get booked into a nearby Premier Inn. It's such a shame that it's run in such a shambolic way as there's so much potential there but it certainly doesn't deserve either the three AA stars or to be part of the Best Western hotel group. The staff don't have a clue about how to run a hotel or customer care. Avoid at all cost!!

"Sunday Afternoon Tea for relatives and friends"

20/11/2018

I organised this as a surprise get together for my Father. Everything went really well and I would recommend the venue for this. The quality and quantities of food were excellent, we had the traditional option. Ensure that all matters relating to the administration of your booking are clear as there were issues around this prior to the event, which were resolved by the manager, but I was very surprised that this happened at a Best Western hotel, and this is why I have stated four not five stars. I would recommend this venue for pre-booked afternoon tea.

"Family function"

3
11/11/2018

We enjoyed a family party at The Watermill and stayed overnight. Cyril on reception was very welcoming, polite and efficient and also had to man the bar which he did admirably. The finger buffet food was ample and a really nice (although carb-rich) spread although none suitable for a vegan to eat (from his experience he had brought his own). The function room was perfect. The toilets were nearby but had no soap provision for hand washing in the ladies and was not acted upon when asked to rectify. Not very good for hygiene purposes especially with a finger buffet and there was no soap provided in the room so we had to use the shower gel for hand washing there. The breakfast was nice and a hot buffet provision with a nice selection of tinned fruits and cereals. Self serve toast, pastries and beverages were provided. The room was clean enough although the surfaces were grubby and I found some condoms in the drawer! I tried not to look too closely! The bath towel was stained although looked clean. For the price it was a adequate provision for a nights stay for the purpose of our visit.

"Dated and Unloved!"

2
01/11/2018

The hotel may sound nice with a watermill running through it, but it's terribly dated with interior brick work throughout, and ancient decor in the bedrooms. My curtains were hanging off the rail, a bedside light didn't work, another was covered in cobwebs and the toilet seat was cracked (and looked about 30 years old...) The room was freezing on arrival so I turned the radiator up, only to find the heating went off about 10pm so I spent the night shivering and consequently got no sleep! I did ask for an extra duvet but was brought two manky looking brown blankets, a bit like the ones my grandma had in 70's. One was covered in stains, though it did smell clean so I gave it the benefit of the doubt because it was so cold! Went down for breakfast at 9am and the food was edible but very bog standard. Staff were friendly but I definitely would not stay here again. Half expected to see Alan Partridge walking around the corridors...it's that kind of place...

"2 day weekend conference at the Garden Suite"

30/10/2018

This is the first time we have used the Watermill Hotel for a conference. The conference was held in the Garden suite, a large room that can be sectioned off with moveable walls. The staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble. Particularly Martin, who was on hand at all times, even coming in on his day off (Sunday) to help out. Organisation was a dream and this helped the course run very smoothly. The restaurant catered for a wide variety of special dietary requirement with no fuss. The food was excellent and service again wonderful. Bedrooms were larger than expected and clean. Overall a great experience, value for money and great service. We will definitely be back again.

22/10/2018

Arrived at what looked like a very nice Hotel,Having checked in we were told room number and nothing else. Only one card to enter. the room which was sparse and the bathroom left a lot to be desired with plugs that did not fit sink nor bath and the tiles could have done with a good clean, when reported to staff they appeared not to understand and excuses were made , but nothing appeared to have been done about it, when checking about breakfast it seemed that no one knew how to work computer to answer questions and the staff command of the English language was poor.to crown it all the window did not close properly and condensation was running down the inside of the same , neither my husband nor I slept for the cold. Suffice it to say overpriced, unhelpful staff, and would not reccommendto anyone

"Day away with an evening stay"

20/10/2018

The room and restaurant very high standard of cleanliness, however think we only had a few words from staff during our stay which didn't make it welcoming. We requester a easy accessible family room to which we were told family room was on first floor and we had to struggle with luggage, one member of our group walking with the aid of her stroller. No lift. Food we ordered was all obviously ping meals pizza was a soggy melted mess on the plate, pie had a cold piece of pastry placed on top and carbanara warm. Breakfast was another disappointment food was a lot better however everything was being cleared away as we were eating cooked so no toast etc available to finish our breakfast even the drinks machine was taken away. A very disappointing end to what had been a lovely day out. We will not be returning

19/10/2018

Originally a flour mill with water running all around the hotel. Many of the rooms looked like a motel with rooms opening to a balcony, we were in the annex and a good sized room, but what we noticed more than anything, was how clean everything was. Bed very comfortable and firm, enough complimentary coffee and tea and a decent shower. We only stayed one night and didn't use the rest of site as left early in morning, but thought it was worth a bit of praise, as we think it was the cleanest room we've seen in the last few years.

"shambolic"

17/10/2018

in short. Staff speak very poor English, the bar is terrible, I ordered a Guinness which was like vinegar, then a Boddingtons which was like vinegar plus acid....... CLEAN THE LINES. I did however enjoy watching the rats frolic on the stagnant lake surrounding the rooms and thrilled at the Managers publicly chastising the staff for not having a clue how to serve or even how enter items on the till. the room itself was ok? apart from the er the road for food dripping toilet which was a nice backdrop to the nearby trains.....................Go over the road for food and drinks!

"Horrendous business event"

1
12/10/2018

Attended a business breakfast event and felt so sorry for the hosts. As a fellow business owner, when you book a hotel for an event you expect a level of service. In fact, ANY level of service would have helped! Breakfast was late and slow, plates ran out, cutlery ran out, tables weren't cleared quickly..... the list goes on. There was no manager on site to help, so everybody was pretty much left to it!!! AVOID!!!!

We have stayed here at the Watermill for the third consecutive week, we are business users and have been treated absolute brilliantly by all of the staff, especially Cyril at the bar and Alina in the reception. These two members of staff should be promoted in our opinion, they are fabulous and a great asset to the hotel. Our trip would not have been half as pleasant if it were not for these two members of staff. Great rooms, great views, amazing food and staff are smashing!!! Highly recommended

20/09/2018

We come away for a few nights and when we arrived to the hotel we was left waiting for ages the staff was very rude and didn't really no any English when we got in the room it was cold and the towels was dirty like they had been left from people before when we told them they said they would bring new and we never got til next day. Then when we went to check out they try saying are payment didn't go thought so we had to pay again which we didn't really have the money so now they have had two lots of money and we have been left overdrawn its a joke had to get police and fraud team involved its taken a lot of my time and effort today and has left me very poorly with my mental health and stuff..

20/09/2018

We come away to Hemel to visit family for a little break and stay at this hotel when we went to check out it didn't go smoothly they said my partners card declined even tho we rang the bank it never so we had to pay on my card which was last of my money for a week to buy milk, nappies and they told me they would put the money back in and to much of are surprise were still waiting and been on phone all day to them and back which has been really stressful and I don't need it, I have a new born baby so need time for him and haven't been able to do this so really upset and angry about this, So we're 140 pound overdrawn so any child benefit I get is gonna come straight out we have now and haven't got a lot of money anyway. Which now the police and fraud team are trying to sort out but until then we're without money. The staff are very rude and couldn't understand me and keep hanging up to be honest it's been a joke... Wouldn't recommend this hotel at all !!!

"Superb again."

18/09/2018

Went for afternoon tea again as had enjoyed it so much the time before. Tea was made strong, just how we asked for it, sandwiches were beautifully fresh, and the cakes were delicious. There was masses of cream with the scones and the scones were the best we have ever tasted. We asked if they were made in house and were told yes they were made fresh by the chef. Absolutely delicious!

"Best bit was leaving!"

16/09/2018

When we arrived in our room the curtains were hanging off the rails which didn't bode well. The windows were filthy and actually had cobwebs on them; the sills were covered in dirt. In the shower the water pressure was a trickle and therefore useless for washing a full head of long hair. The final straw was being woken by workmen in the morning. We would not recommend this hotel to our worst enemy.

"Terrible room, terrible diningroom"

Our room was filthy, drapes hanging on few hooks, afraid they could fall on the floor. Bed cover had tears and holes. Bathrooms looks like something from a construction site. Never again will we stay in such a mess.

16/08/2018

stayed here as we were attending a party here so it was convenient. Staff were friendly and the location is nice with the river however Our room was not good, bath stained, toilet seat stained, The mattress on the bed was absolutely awful it was lumpy and sank in the middle, it definitely needed a new mattress and a bigger bed, it was probably the smallest bed we have ever slept in at a hotel.. talking of hotels it was more like a motel only it was way over priced for what little comforts you got, i did not sleep at all that night. breakfast at £10 each extra was not worthy of £10 more like £4, it was buffet style and not good, for £10 i expect a choice of eggs not just scrambled powder eggs, i expect someone to bring us toast not make it ourselves, we even had to make our own drinks from a machine... will NOT be staying here ever again.

16/08/2018

This was a joint birthday party with band involving over 100 guests included drinks and a buffet together with some accommodation. From the start to the end this event went perfectly and this was due to the pre planning undertaken throughout by Rachel the Event Coordinator. Staff on the day were excellent. The accommodation was again very good and we were given a reduced rate which included breakfast which again was very good. Several of our guests will use this hotel again when travelling in the area. Well done Team Watermill

06/08/2018

Staff were very helpful very polite When we arrived we were allocated a disabled room we did not request a diabled room and we had paid for a double executive room. After speaking to reception they moved us to a double executive room what we had requested when we booked. As we were going to a wedding in the evening in a hotel down the road we were expecting to have lunch at the hotel and sit on the outside part of the hotel where the mill is it is like a decking this was not possible as there was a wedding in the marquee at the property but the decking where people staying at the hotel should have been able to sit was taken up by the wedding guests coming through being offered a drink We ended up haveing lunch at the local pub and going back to our room until it was time to leave for the wedding we were going a short way away Breakfast included in the price we were asked if we wanted full English we had no idea what included and were not asked if we wanted scrambled poached fried eggs a small menu on the table shiwing what is included would assist Could be a good hotel but surely paying guests should not be an after thought

So I checked into the hotel around 10pm and was greeted by the very personable Maria, a lovely manner and very helpful. I stay in many many hotels and never write reviews but just the way this lovely lady checked me in and showed me the direction of the room and her very pleasant but professional approach made me want to write this. The hotel is ok and “safe” for a short stay - does need some money spending on it but the room I stayed in was fine. Message to management: Give Maria a raise, she is a credit to your business!
