  • I am used to going to the grounds in Loondon, where they are 19th Century grounds adapted for the current age. This ground is built for the 21st Century - a great experience. My only criticism is that...  more »

  • Upmarket hotel with balconies overlooking the cricket ground. Watched live match. No swimming just a spa which you had to pay extra for. Restaurant for a special occasion. Breakfast very good. Good links to roads. Would stay again
  • A decent modern facility. Obviously, it is going to cash in on the captive audience (an ODI match on this case) which always grates a bit. On the positive side though, it appears that there is no restriction on bringing your food in. The ground has expanded a bit since my last visit and the changes have been for the better. I hope the open standing areas around the catering are left open for the future.
  • Good hotel with decent sized rooms. As an unexpected bonus I discovered that Sky One and some Sky Sports channels are available on your 42” TV! The reason for losing one star was that I was next to some kind of staff or storage room and its door would open and close quite often which I could hear when trying to sleep. It’s only a minor issue but it’s an issue nonetheless.
  • A great place to watch cricket matches. Getting in and parking was relatively easy, the bus service from the parking lots at the university was quite slow but fast enough to be bearable. A wide variety of food and drinks are available for reasonable prices, there is an entire area dedicated to kids' entertainment: there are bouncy castles, face painting, climbing walls and much more (all included with the ticket). The cricket is great and overall a wonderful day out with a little planning required. My only real disappointment was leaving the stadium, as it took at least half an hour to three quarters of an hour. We got there in the end however and once you go you definitely want to come back.
  • Top notch ground and SOME food stalls at t20 only all food expensive and bottle of coke £2.50 and a mediocre milkshake £4!!! good venue ruined by prices. Oh, in County Championship games ONLY as it's less packed I would recommend to eat in the Arlott Autrium as they do WONDERFUL FOOD if a little pricey.
