The room comfy/clean and grounds lovely
Other Comments
The room was comfy and clean and the grounds lovely.The food was poor to/very average.There was no organisation in the dining room some diners being left for a good hour before being served ordered food. We kept having to prompt staff so we weren't also left . At breakfast I asked for a vegan breakfast and was served mushrooms, tomatoes ,vegan sausage and a fried egg.No hash brown or beans ?.The dairy free spread was a concoction put together by the staff ,I have a photo of congealed fat of some description with dairy free milk poured into it. Surely due to the high profile deaths from allergic reactions in the press lately , food allergens should be a health & safety issue.

The hotel is in need of repair and decoration. It is very tired in appearance and is in need of redecoration and new upholstery and furniture.

The prices in the bar were average, the reception staff member 3pm on Friday 10th was very professional and friendly. The grounds were perfectly kept and tidy. The views were amazing.
Other Comments
Rooms were dated not as shown on travel zoo, the pictures of the food on travel zoo showed to be fine dining not pub grub. The bed creaked at slightest movement and hotel was further out than expected.

Room was good apart from the bath needs replacing because of a chip out the enamel and strangely the wc cistern fills with hot water. Facilities were good especially the gym and the pool.
