      Very nice location and very peaceful

      Checked in at 9p.M. initial impression was nice hotel but rather frayed around the edges, check in was simple, female clerk pleasant, went to the first floor to my room (38) to find several spiders/ bugs on the roof of my room and in the bathroom. (Including a very big spider on the T.V. console) did'nt bother complaining to reception as I was tired and wanted to go to bed after driving from 5 A.M. that day, removed the offending bugs, had a shower and went to bed, shortly after going to bed I was bitten on the leg by a earwig that was in the bed ! 8.30 am next morning went down to breakfast (sore leg and all) was seated by a less than welcoming female waitress, she bought me tea and toast that i never requested and there i was left to my own devises for twenty five minutes, no one came to take a breakfast order at all, what i found realy annoying was all the staff had to walk right past my table to get to and from the kitchen, i gestured several times to no avail, totally unprofessional restaurant staff. i decided i had enough sitting around waiting like a dog in a kennel waiting to be fed, i returned to my room, collected my belongings and went to reception to check out, i was presented with a bill by the girl on duty, i enquired was she going to ask me if everything was o.k.

      Free sweets, very helpful staff.

      We stayed in bed one morning so they couldn't make up our room. So we left a "please make up room" (provided) sign on our door from approx 1pm - 6pm, room wasn't made up during these hours.

      Great restaurant and menu selection of local fare with very attentive, but not unobtrusive staff.

      construction taking place but this should be temporary

      The hotel was like a building site. Drinks totally overpriced - £4 for a pint of lager, £3.40 for hand pulled real ale. - utter rip off. It seems that due to its isolated location it decides to charge people what it likes.....

    • Older travelers

      The surrounding countryside and the walk near the hotel lake.

      The noise from the building work. The reception albeit temporary and being booked into the wrong room.

      The executive room was a bargain for £60 for the night. Very spacious and the biggest bed ive slept in. Must have been cheaper because of ongoing building works.

      Staff not very helpful. When asked what was available for the continental and the cooked breakfast we were advised that the continental breakfast has 'things like pastries' and the cooked breakfast was a cooked breakfast. The menu was a bit too 'fine dining' and offered no basic option. Room service menu was limited and overpriced. Breakfast would have cost £29 for two of us so we went elsewhere in the morning. Bath was small for such a spacious room.

      we stayed at the hotel for only 1 night, but the whole experience was wonderful. the attention to detail in the room and cleanliness was excellent.the welcome was warm and friendly as were all the staff we came into contact with. The whole experience was first class in every way and on arriving back home we immedeately looked on the net for other dates to stay.

      Although extensive building works were going on (new spa) the builders ensured all the areas were clean. Two young porters came out to our cars to offer to take our luggage - beyond the norm and rare nowadays. The courtesy continued into the hotel with another very helpful porter. The reception staff were courteous, confident, friendly & efficient. The reception is upstairs to maximise the room downstairs - lovely spacious and welcoming. Fires were lit keeping the public areas very cosy. Our room was well decorated and clean and the wall heater only took a couple of minutes to start heating the room. Crisp white linen and the single beds extremely comfortable. Wedding food lovely. Friends cooked breakfast appeared to have been reheated....
