Checking in no information given on where the restaurant was despite booking a table and no information given on breakfast times. I Confirmed the room type along with name (and had done this previously with email) and when going into room it was the wrong room type! This was fixed quickly enough although when following the receptionist back to lobby... More

Visited during lunchtime and it took some time to get eye contact from a very busy waitress who did her best despite obvious understaffing. Considering this she did a great job. Will go back but will reserve a table in advance next time

myself and my partner decided to go there for a night. Our room was immaculate, very friendly staff and we got a great deal on breakfast and dinner! Food was tasty, nice range of desserts. We had a late check out too which gave us a bit more time to explore in the morning.

Stayed in the hotel with my two daughters aged 7 + 5. Very impressed with everything especially the swimming pool. Two little alcoves (with bubbles) in the main pool which the girls loved and where they could take a break from the big part of the pool. Food was lovely, we had one evening meal and breakfast every morning. Only... More

Myself and my family stayed here for one night last weekend! While our room was spacious if a little dated the service left a lot to be desired. We arrived for our 3 o clock check in to be told our rooms wouldn't be ready for at least another 45 mins. We had some vouchers for cocktails so decided to... More

I was at the hotel for a meeting and wasn't involved in the booking process. I assume it went well. My colleague who booked it said it was a reasonable rate. The website is clear and I got the information I needed about getting there. I didn't get to see the grounds or any bedrooms. Good points: The foyer is... More
