Weather helped (we had two glorious days) but room (Classic Twin) was very good (very well appointed and good size), food (Market Menu) although limited choice, was excellent quality (with very good...

Something I cannot put my finger on prevented me giving 5*s. We went for a two night stay and my first impression was not good. Front of office staff in reception and especially in the restaurant were very austere. This might have something to do with their all black uniform but Could have been friendlier. Restaurant menu was very expensive... More

Second time visiting this hotel, and stay was just as great. Had booked a classic room but was given an executive room, was lovely spacious, comfy bed, very large room came with a safe and a fridge. Only fault was that that the pressure on the shower wasn't enough for us, we like a power shower ha. The spa at... More

Took 7 friends for an overnight stay and a couple of rounds of golf. After a particularly unpleasant start with an obnoxious little madam on reception who has clearly made the wrong career choice ( hospitality ), we went on to have 2 great rounds of golf, an excellent dinner ( served by the cheerful and helpful Moses ), an...

This was my second time staying here as the local office is close by. I checked in, and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. I was given room 110 which, as I discovered once I was in the room, was a disabled access room. I really don't like these rooms and I really dislike being given one and not... More

Let me start by saying the hotel itself is really good. The hotel has a grand feel to it, it's spacious and the outdoor areas are really well kept and beautiful. The food was good and the bar had a great atmosphere. But this is where the positives ended. The room we stayed in, room 401 completely let the stay... More
