I was very pleased with the place my sister-in-law was staying. She seemed very settled for the time she was there. We had a walk around inside, and I really enjoyed my visit there.

Lovely accommodation, very caring staff. All residents are treated with sympathy and understanding regardless of their disabilities. The food is varied and excellent and I would happily recommend Simon Marks Court as a very superior care home and happy place to be. I should like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and management for loo… king after me so well and making my stay so enjoyable.

Mom came to the home at short notice in September 2022, and the staff were all welcoming in a difficult situation. She was allocated a lovely room and settled in well. The food was of a really good standard, and Mom stayed with Simon Marks for seven months. The home is well equipped with a bar and coffee area, which didn't always seem to be in use … but was available when needed for visitors. There are also regular entertainment and GP visits to support residents.

The rooms are fabulous, and the staff are very friendly and caring They go out of their way to make everyone feel wanted and safe.

Mum has been a resident at Simon Marks for three months now. From my first enquiry through admission and up to now, I have been delighted with the level of care provided.

Can't fault anything at Simon Marks. The staff have been incredible and so patient with my mum, who can often be very grumpy with them. They are always friendly, and helpful and feel like they genuinely care so much about the residents. They have also been very supportive of me since my mum went there and keep me informed of everything. The home is… clean and welcoming whenever you visit and love the fact that they have visitors to the home to entertain the residents. Every staff member I've met has been excellent and I know my mum is receiving the best care she could get. Other family members have all said the same. So glad my mum was placed here.
