The hotel was very comfortable and in a superb location. Our main grouse was there was a long wait for a a table at breakfast times and the service yen was very slow. It seemed that there were insufficient room for all the guests staying especially when coach parties were there.

Hotel and facilities were very good but vastly inflated bar prices spoiled the experience. This hotel would be no good for families as the prices for tea coffee soft drinks wine and beer are so excessive

Loved the room and hotel and had a lovely massage. Went for Breakfast waited to get seated despite being the only 2 people waiting and a dining staff standing next to us. After being seated requested orange juice to be renewed. Think I was about the 3rd person to ask. Waited a further 10/15 minutes for someone to take our... More

Went for an overnight Spa break with my daughter. Customer Service throughout our stay was excellent. We had an upgraded room on the ground floor Which had a small terrace overlooking the golf course. Would certainly recommend.

Lovey hotel, room was very spacious and clean, the meal was faultless, however drinks were a bit on the pricey side as is with many hotels. Staff were very friendly. We booked this on a deal so was happy with our stay for the price that we payed.
