Would not recommend - poor poor organisation and ineffectively managed hotel. - booked a golf & spa break which included dinner and initially seemed like a good deal. Too many faults n let downs right from the booking stage which was done directly with hotel. Repeatedly asked for booking confirmation to be sent and did not receive. No instruction on... More

We stayed overnight on Sunday 24 August and couldn't fault the hotel. We had a lovely room which also accommodated our little dog. Everyone was very friendly and the food lovely in the lounge and breakfast. We will definitely return. I made use of the spa which was lovely.

We looked forward to having an exceptional stay as we'd heard of the Macdonald Group. I've got to say we were a bit disappointed with the room. It was dated, tired and one of the windows didn't close which meant we were awake most of the night with traffic toing and froing along the main road which is very close... More

I visited recently (16/8/14) for a wedding which was held at the venue and stayed over night. The welcome from reception was excellent and the staff throughout were extremely friendly and accommodating. The reception/bar area does look very modern and up to date compared to the banqueting suite and rooms from what in could see but nothing to overly complain... More

Recently visited the hotel for a short break with my husband. We arrived at 1.30pm, and were greeted by a lovely young lady on reception, who informed us our room was ready (even though we were an hour and a half early). We were really chuffed to be told we had been upgraded, as on my booking request I had... More
