I attended an event at this hotel. It has been about 5 years since I was last there. Even though it is under new management, the service and food has not improved. Check in and out continues to be an issue. The setting of this hotel is wonderful, there is a great spa and pool area - great for a... More

I found my experience truly shocking. After over hearing management bully a member of staff, finding hair in my food, I soon realised that I was dining in the equivalent of a local pub. I found one member of management very unhelpful and point blank rude. Completely looked right through me. I have dealt with better customer service at the... More

Very impressive and small enough to have a homely feel. My wife and I took advantage of a facial for her and massage for me both of which were an hour and cost around £45 each. Good quality spa and nice pool area. The rooms were large and comfortable ( I would suggest the view over the golf course rather... More

Stayed overnight here. Had specific dietary requirements and Adam the restaurant manager was brilliant. Couldn't have been more helpful. Was very friendly and funny too. Great hotel and pool too. Thank you.

My wife and I decided to spend two nights at this hotel and we couldn't have made a better choice. The hotel staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and the hotel setting was breath-taking. It lived up to its expectations!! The room was very spacious and well equipped and the bed albeit very large was very comfortable. The swimming pool... More

Stayed for one night as a treat away. Very impressed with the setting, lovely sitting out on the terrace overlooking the golf course. Room was comfortable and clean with amazing shower. Good breakfast, asked for poached eggs as extra to the buffet which were served quickly and hot.

We stayed here for one night whilst we attended a friend's wedding and it was really special. The reception area is really pleasant as are the staff, we were quickly checked in and able to drop our luggage off in our lovely 1st floor room. We overlooked the car park but I suspect the rooms overlooking the golf course are... More

We stayed 2 nights mid July, paying £102 per night via Hotels.com. 2 rooms too. Bizarrely one night was B and B, one not. We think it was overpriced seeing prices others paid, but to be fair that might be hotels.com not the hotel. Stranger was that our booking wasn't in the hotel system, despite being made the same day,... More

Good points - very quiet, excellent service (specially Chris and Elita, both in the restaurant), beautiful setting, good food (bar menu was good, didn't try the restaurant), good size 18m pool, well equipped gym with helpful staff (Clay), biscuits in the...

This was booked by my boyfriend for a birthday surprise for me earlier in the year. The hotel was having some building work done to the front of the building but nothing that caused interference to guests. I had heard good reviews of the spa but as we arrived a little later we didn't get to use them but they... More
