The grounds were extensive and well kept. The rooms were clean and comfortable
Other Comments
The public areas were cold as the air conditioning had not been reset for the lower temperatures outside. The food at breakfast time was not hot and served on cold plates. Staff were attentive ONCE you managed to get their attention. A distinct lack of customer focus as their prime business appears to be coaches and conferences.

Although we like this hotel, service at breakfast was very poor. The buffet dishes were not checked and refilled - always had to remind staff. Had to ask for coffee, not offered it. Plates were cold.

Value for money
Other Comments
We paid £69 for one nights stay, a bottle of wine and a buffet breakfast each. We also used the swimming pool, Jacuzzi and steamroom/sauna. I haven't stayed anywhere better for the price and the food was worth the money too. The rooms were clean and a good size, the staff were really friendly and the public areas/facilities were well presented and tidy. I have stayed at a lot better hotels but have paid a lot more money so I am taking this into consideration when giving this review

Modern,well designed hotel with spacious bedrooms set in well maintained grounds far from the madding crowds. The normal 'English breakfast' was set apart by the quality of the food offered, well cooked and with good service. good service.

Lovely hotel with great leisure facilities. The only niggle was the lack of choice for the restaurant evening meal. Also the tv in the room was tiny and had a very bad signal so couldn't really watch it. But all in all I would go back as a lovely hotel.

V busy on Sat night so staff stretched and service slow. This venue is in my opinion, primarily a conference/wedding venue with coach parties overnighting.
