Unfortunately I didn’t get to attend this event due to covid 19. Had bought it as a present for my boyfriends birthday. They allowed us to rebook or get a refund which was lovely of them and it was all sorted very quickly. I am looking forward to going at another time.

Good for the price we paid

Me and my mum brought this for each other for Christmas, as we thought it would be something different. We stayed at the mercure in Bristol. The 3 course meal could have been improved it was very small, and mass produced, the actual murder mystery was different, I thought this would happen after dinner and not during. Therefore it was hard to eat, understand what was going on and talk to other guests on the table. The full English in the morning was very good. For something different and a laugh I would say it was good for the money we paid, however I am not sure I would be rushing back.

My boyfriend and I went to this as a Christmas present and really enjoyed the whole evening. The hotel in Harrogate was a great setting and the actors really got into their characters. Food was excellent and the whole event was run really well. Nice big room at the hotel too and good cooked breakfast the next morning. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

The hotel was lovely...food nice but the murder mystery part was just awful. Had no idea at all what was going on...just unorganised chaos....we left before the end .

Arranged as a gift for friend. 10 of us attended, food was great. Murder mystery was fun, the characters mingled with the audience. Lots of fun deciphering the clues and characters. A great evening.

Such a laugh

I've never done a murder mystery before and didn't know what to expect but it was so much fun! It was a popular event and actors were excellent. You soon get caught up in the drama of the event and we were determined to catch the killer... which we did! A very different way to spend an evening and will definitely book again.

Hugely Disappointing!
29 February 2020
I bought this Murder Mystery event as our Xmas present to ourselves and had been looking forward to a special evening for a while. The Old Ship Hotel on the sea front in Brighton couldn't have been a better location. We've always loved Brighton and have driven passed The Old Ship on too many occasions and wondered what it was like inside! The Murder Mystery & dinner was held in a very grand function room of the hotel. As the acoustics of the room were particularly good, I didn't think the professional actors would have a problem projecting their voices, however they decided to use the PA sound system and radio microphones. It became clear to us, and undoubtedly others, from the onset that the actors were of an 'amateur dramatics' level and even clearer that not all of them had taken the time to read up on the script as it was very evident throughout that some were simply filling time! It was also evident that none of the actors had been trained in microphone technique as some were holding their mics in the wrong positions and angles which didn't pick up their voices, so some of the clues were lost, whereas some forgot they had microphones in front of their mouths when they were shouting simultaneously at one another across the function room, resulting in their amplified lines being garbled, unbearably loud and resulting in missing further clues. At first I thought it was just me, but I looked around and witnessed quite a few guests with their hands over their ears! Another person at our table had given up on trying to follow the clues due to the poor, incoherent and shambolic way in which the performance was delivered! As a professional musician, I'm more than aware how poor microphone technique can ruin a performance and sadly,this was clearly evident. This was my first Murder Mystery which has left a bad taste but I'll certainly not let this one bad experience put me off from going to others. I must say that the 3 course dinner was excellent as was the service
