                A very relaxed hotel where the guests come first. We will revisit in the future.

              • Family with children
                8.2

                It was local to us, cheaper alternative evening meal next door

                Family room wasn't very big. Wasn't enough room to move around and was a little pokey.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Friendly helpful staff. Nice rooms, although beginning to look a little tired. Comfortable bed. Nice fluffy towels.

              • Couple
                7.4

                Hotel staff were curteous and helpful

                Room service menu is pretty poor after 9pm, just soup and sandwhiches, though they were quite tasty.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Good range of facilities.

                Lack of variety on dinner menu and brakfast service a biot slow

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                The trip home

                The hairs in the bath, the inability of the receptionist to listen...

              • Family with children
                9.6

                Great hotel good location with excellent spa facilities, the pub adjoining the hotel offered good food at reasonable prices in a relaxed atmosphere

                Didn't eat in the hotel as thought prices for a family of four were a little expensive therefore would suggest an inclusive rate for breakfast for this type of stay.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Good service and facilities with the higher end rooms being extremely comfortable. Staff always very helpful.

                While it may be marketed as a luxury facility it is very expensive. Nearly £8 for tea for two which came in a pot large enough for a builders yard tea break with cookies that were not requested or required.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                comfortable hotel helpful staff on site facilities.

                busy other than hotel activities, wedding fayre etc.

              • Single
                8.8

                Large comfortable suite, good food, use of Spa pool, parking

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Pleasant and comfortable reception and bar area. Spa looked attractive but we didnot have time to try. Bar staff were friendly but not 100% au fait with menu.

                The bedrooms and bathrooms just beginning to look a little tired, especially bathrooms.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                The staff were polite and helpful.Breakfast very good

                No real complaints...but staff nearly apologised too much for short waits in service

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                A very friendly hotel, all staff made us feel very welcome

                Breakfast was a bit overpriced

              • Couple
                6.2

                Staff extremely pleasant and helpful - really good. Rooms pretty good (a bit small for two). Food in restaurant, bar, and adjacent pub all excellent.

                Seems the hotel cannot cope with occupancy peaks. We arrived on a Bank Holiday weekend with several weddings under way - there was no-one to help with baggage from the car, ten minutes to check-in, and a further ten minute wait for help with baggage to the room. The wireless internet is poor at best, but for 95% of our time there it was so slow as to be almost unusable. Although there is a wired internet socket in the room, Reception were unable to provide a cable to connect to it. Spa facilities also seem to suffer when the hotel is full - the swimming pool, although large, was regularly very full resulting in almost no room to swim properly. I can imagine all these issues may be better when the hotel is less full.

              • Older travelers
                9.4

                Relaxing nature of the hotel although there was a wedding my husband and I were not aware
