Excellent. We stayed on a 3rd party deal over a Sunday and Monday night. Very good value. Very high standards of comfort, cleanliness and hospitality. Food delicious. Absolutely no complaints and would recommend.

I have been to this hotel three times over the past few years and can honestly say that the service is terrible. I would never have returned after the first time but a young member of my family plays in an orchestra there once a year and I go to support her and the other young musicians. Taking into account...

I always think people are really picky when leaving reviews and always take them with a pinch of salt as I did here. There is one point however I would agree with and that is that the resort is not very well signposted ! We arrived about 8pm and drove around in the dark looking for the reception. Eventually found... More

It took forever to check in and the hotel couldn't find my other guests on the system, even though I had sorted it when I was checking in. The other room wasn't set up properly and it took another 15 minutes of waiting until I could speak to reception to complain. The receptionist couldn't get my name correct so I... More

We booked this hotel for a relaxing family weekend away. Upon arrival i was advised that the pool and spa would be closed on the Monday,with no apology or explanation as to why i hadnt been told this either at the time of booking or in advance of getting there. On top of that the pool was very cold and... More

We stayed for a second time in the Woodland Lodges - three bedrooms and three bathrooms. However for a weekend break I would suggest that you look elsewhere as you will barely get a full day there as the check in time is 5pm and the check out time 10am, even on a Sunday. You therefore arrive in the dark... More
