    Free upgrade to a lovely suite, pleasant welcoming door and reception staff

    The breakfast room was chaotic and cooked food not to the best standard. Sofas etc in bar are needing a vacuum!

    Breakfast was quite good. Cold food choice a little bit limited. Spa facilities were good and pool was lovely. Staff were friendly and decor was lovely.

    Vegetarian choice on Dinner menu was VERY limited. No flatbread option on either night of our stay so vegetarian option for both nights was risotto. When husband said he didn’t want risotto again he had to ask if chef would make an omelette and fries which was not the type of food expected.

    Nothing exceeded expectation - the location was good for what we needed

    This was our first time staying at this venue, as part of an arranged event, however they were in no way prepared for, or had the capacity to deal with the volume of people there over the weekend. This impacted on wait time for room service, our room wasn’t cleaned on the Saturday and breakfast was chaos! On Saturday morning we had to set our own table before being able to eat, and with that, the food was mildly warm, with lots unavailable. This morning we had a similar experience, and for the price paid, this was really disappointing. Overall there were many finishing touches which were missing - no robes in the suite we were staying in, room service plates left in our room over the weekend etc. And a shower which ran hot and cold. I wouldn’t be recommending a stay here unless you had to.
