I concur with the other comments
5.0

This is a great place to go with plenty of cars and bikes to see, drool over and/or buy. Their events are terrific too.

Comfortable, friendly and scenic
5.0

I stayed here some years ago. It's a good location for a quiet weekend near the coast. Plenty of walking (and driving, of course!). The roads nearby are a bit narrow, but that's Cornwall for you. A good honest hotel with a good carpark.

Tucked away in central Bristol!
4.0

I was surprised to find this place, so near to Cribbs Causeway area of Bristol and yet seemingly in the countryside. The road leading to the hotel is a bit bumpy/grass track but the venue's parking was fine and the afternoon tea was great.

Lovely location and facilities
5.0

We stayed here for a tour of France & Belgium. The town is picturesque and sits along a river valley with lots of cafes, bars, etc. Our satnav took us a weird route to get to the hotel (I think a good old fashioned map would have been better) as our way out seemed a lot easier than our way in! Parking was plentiful and the hotel comfortable with a good restaurant. It was a big old house that now has a modern annex attached where most (all?) of the bedrooms are located. I'm not sure how easy it would be to walk to the town as we just stayed here overnight and then were on our way the next morning.

Impressive Place
4.0

I've been here on a few occasions for car events, golf and conferences. The important thing is that your car won't be hit by a golf ball, with the exception of the drive from the main hotel to the '2012 Clubhouse' (so take care here). This place is not cheap but it is impressive and has great facilities.

Easy to fine with great parking
5.0

Having stayed here a few times I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. It's easy to find, being on a main road junction, but traffic noise is not a problem if you get an 'inside' room. I haven't yet had an outside-facing room but I don't think the road is so busy as to keep you awake at night (especially after a long day's drive and a few beers). It has a few restaurant choices, a bowling alley and a feature pool that's connected indoors and outdoors. The walk to Assen town centre is about 25 mins and well worth it.

My car was safe here
4.0

I agree with Mrs GP's comments. The hotel was quite busy when I was there, but I had no problem finding a safe spot for my car. It's also got a lovely frontage for taking a photo on arrival. Quite convenient for Silverstone which is why I was there.

Great car park
4.0

It's an Ibis so you know you're not getting a 5-star hotel, but the car park is 5-star! I parked my car in a bay with walls on both sides so it was like a garage without a door. Perfect for fettling (if a little dark) and not worrying about anyone bashing the side of my car.

Comfortable and Impressive
5.0

We stayed here a few months ago. It's an impressive looking place with a golf course outside (so take care when approaching). We spotted some famous footballer type but don't let that put you off! Room was comfortable with a good view (although we couldn't see our car) and the breakfast was excellent. Would be happy to go back.

Great Car Park
4.0

I picked this hotel because of the car park. Not only is it big and flat, but there are some tucked away spaces too. It's on the main road and so part of the car park is visible to traffic. The hotel was comfortable and the breakfast good.

Ideal location and good parking
5.0

We stayed here during a car tour. The hotel is situated in a dead end so there's no passing traffic. It's easy to walk to the nearby town centre restaurants, etc. The car park is large and mainly flat. We had no problem parking and had a great view of the car and the countryside from our room.

A good venue
5.0

We stayed here overnight during a car tour. It's an unassuming pub with friendly locals, good food, good service from the landlord and comfortable, if fairly small, rooms. The car park is opposite the pub and mostly hidden behind a hedge.

A quiet and impressive place
5.0

This is a traditional country house hotel that we've stayed at on a few occasions. They have some impressive rooms and a cosy bar. Afternoon teas are popular. Good quality restaurant. No worries about parking.
