This was such a wonderful place to come and relax! Greeted by happy, calm staff who are extremely helpful. Hallways and rooms are clean and modern! I loved all the added touches such as White Company shampoo and body wash. All these things just add a little something! The room was spacious and the bed; the comfiest I have slept... More

Massive executive room with enormous bed, evening meal in the Winepress restaurant was one of the best meals we have had for a very long time with wonderful service.. The pool and spa facilities were fantastic although pretty busy on the Saturday! Altogether... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on our Wedding night 23 years ago when it had only been open for about a year, so returned to stay for our anniversary last week. The Hotel has changed a lot since then (we have been to the Hotel many times over the years), but the service and facilities remain as... More

Wonderful weekend away with friends, very good value, top class spa and pool. Restaurant was busy and could be a bit hit and miss at times, but on the whole good service and food. Buffet breakfast very good with so much to choose from. Rooms were clean, large, modern and very comfortable.

Staff are lovely and helpful, the food was delicious and we checked in at 8pm and they were able to accommodate us for a very late dinner at 10pm. Only complaint is the sound proofing in our bedroom was pretty abysmal, we were on the ground floor by reception so heard everything and sadly that night there was a hen... More

We have just spent a family get-together last weekend, the staff worked so hard looking after us all, from food, drinks, rooms, golf, spa, pool - couldn't complain about anything, even when the hotel was busy with a Proms night and a wedding to manage.

From setting foot into reception to leaving not one member of staff passed by without a smile and a "hello". So right from the start of the experience the staff were doing their piece. Our room was an attic style room on the 2nd floor which, on our stay, with the weather being hot was rather on the warm side.... More
