            • Group of friends
              6.6

              The golf course and the other facilities were of a good standard

              The organisation in the hotel left a lot to be desired. For example, our booking had not been taken correctly adn i very nearly ended up sleeping on a camp bed. Twice we had checked our booking and it was for a twion room and yet, when we arrived we were told it was a double so we then ahd to accept the camp bed or nothing. Half an hour later, very nearly the tee off time for our round we were moved to a twin.It took a little under an hour to get a cup of tea and some toast in teh morning and when it arrived it was as cold as if it had been waiting to be served for that length of time. Also, another member of our group had booked with dinner included but no space was available at the restaurant for us that evening and he was not refunde

              Comfort & Facilities in rooms.

              Service in restaurant was poor ,tea & coffee arrived after had finished eating, and order was wrong , quality was average at best. Took 50 mins for room service. For a 4 star hotel with abundant facilities our overall conclusion was that we were disappointed.

            • Family with children
              5.8

              The 2 girls at reception were excellent when I checked in, unfortunately they were the exception.

              No fresh soap provided after room clean, waiter tried to tell me that the 250ML Champagne we ordered was the same volume as a 250ML glass of wine when it was clearly just a single flue of champagne compared to full wine glass. Same waiter poured the worst lager I have ever had, thankfully when shown to the off duty bar man he rectified it for me. Swimming pool was closed, which was one of the main reasons we chose to stay at this hotel. Breakfast choice was limited.

            • Couple
              6.6

              We had a very good break here, staff were friendly, room was a little small but was clean, food was really good and the staff in the restaurant were really lovely. Bit overpriced but we had a nice time so we were happy.

            • Single
              6.6

              Quiet location, clean. Cleaner was extremly helpful when I was struggling to carry my bags up the stairs, genuinely concerned and on hand to assist me.

              The food in the restarant was not of a good standard. I had belly of pork and left the whole thing, overcooked. When appraoching the bar for drinks I was faced with an abrupt bar man who did not even look up and instructed me to sitdown to be served. I would stay again, but would be cautious about eating there.

            • Couple
              5.4

              We had dinner in the restaurant on the first night, and the service was very poor. We were one of three tables dining and there were plenty of staff, yet we were offered nothing to drink, and had to get our own water twice. We had ordered the selection of breads with balsamic and oil, but only received a single, small slice of bread once our soup was almost finished - no balsamic or oil. Very disappointing considering the price.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Neat tidy and friendly place. Nice indoor pool area plus good golf course with friendly locals to play with! Good selection of basic bar food in golf bar served on lovely terrace plus restaurant good for breakfast and looked good for the evening. Only stayed 1 night this time but would return for longer

              No jacuzzi. No decaffeinated tea other than fruit or herbal. Reception unable to give permission for a late check out until 7am the next morning when housekeeping apparently came on duty although by then we were already due on the golf course

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Friendly staff especially on the reception desk. Good customer service on arrival-made to feel welcome.

              The buffet breakfast was of a fairly low standard and all the "hot" items were almost cold despite there being another hour of breakfast time left.

            • Couple
              5.4

              its clean.

              for that rate breakfast is not included. Was promissed robes but did not get them for the 2 nites. Booked an excecutive double, got standard twin then standard double!! the fire alarm went at 2.30 in the morning 4 times so of course ran out without robes and disturbed our sleep for a faulty wires. got dirty wine glasses with lipstick on them which we had to wait for 40 minutes for replacement. the aere was a water boiler noise the whole nite. it was very bad experience and was not compensated in any way not even for a lousy coffee/drink/breakfast.

            • Couple
              9.2

              Nice facilities

              Food very slow to arrive in the restaurant

            • Older travelers
              4.6

              Bar area: tables not cleared / cleaned. Ordering diner: funny waiter but couldn't bother to write our order down and therefore ordered the wrong starters. Restaurant: tables around us not cleared / cleaned for hours. The wine we ordered never arrived - we had to chase 3 times to get it. Room: baby next door woke us up at 6 in the morning on a Saturday. Leisure facilities: a guest vomit the night before on the way to the spa and the spa staff needed to tell and show us ! The place were the hot tub used to be was now filled with concrete, only a small pool left. Breakfast: buffet almost empty and we had to chase the staff to fill-it up. Again tables not cleared / cleaned. 4 stars for what ???

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              finding that the food in golfing bar much cheaper than resturant & breakfasts

              10 steps to take a childs buggy and also asking to change room next to my daughter and family and they require an extra £45 per night on a 4 night stay.

            • Older travelers
              4.2

              Room very dated,Television very old fashioned. Bedding clean but very basic. No fridge. We didn't have breakfast because of the exorbitant prices.We were very disappointed with everything - couldn't believe the prices of drinks in the bar!!!

            • Couple
              4.2

              This is a large, overpriced, soulless conference hotel with very little to recommend it. The room was mediocre, the service was generally friendly but inept, and half the facilities were either closed or reserved to conference/stag/birthday/wedding groups who had booked them out. We certainly wouldn't go back.
