Unexpected as I only found out that I was working nearby a week ago. I like a hotel with somewhere to exercise so The Greenbanks fitted the bill with a 12m pool. The hotel was very clean with a large comfortable room (room 7), some of the best food I have eaten in a while and caring staff. Everything a... More

We stayed a few weeks ago for 3 nights in room 9. The room was lovely, a mini converted barn which was spacious and very comfortable. We found the whole place very clean and tidy and it was lovely to have the grounds and lake to walk around. We did not use the swimming pool and so can not comment... More

It was our first visit to Greenbanks for Sunday lunch, and we can honestly say this was the best and tastiest meal we have had for a very long time probably the best meal out all together! They made us very welcome and couldn't do enough to for us and our 5 yr old son. It's very clean and modern... More

Overpriced at £120/night and this doesn't include breakfast. Only worth £60/70 a night. No wifi in rooms. Wanted to charge us £8 to use travel cot. Had to book to use pool the night before and wear a swimming cap. Ensuite in room like a public swimming pool. A 3 star lodge at best, not 4 star. Restaurant in separate... More

We were a family group meeting up for a nearby wedding. Our party comprised 9 adults, 2 boys and 2 babies so hired the whole barn for 3 days. Once we had seen the accommodation we didn't want to leave it. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and all furniture and appliances were of the very highest standard. My husband and I... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and could not have been more impressed by the we can do attitude of the staff, nothing seems to be a problem, the rooms are comfortable, although the beds are double, we are used to a larger sized one, the bathroom is great, a wet room so big no problems moving around...

My Wife, aged 83 & disabled and I aged 92, were lucky enough to get a ten day booking, when we were exiled during a family removal. We could not have been more fortunate, the service was beyond anything we have experienced elsewhere, and the place itself was beautiful and totally unconventional. The woods, the lake and the walk round... More

Where do I start? Everything about Greenbanks exuded welcome, charm, care and personal touch. Right from walking through the door, to the beautifully decorated bedrooms, set in the most fabulous woodland grounds. Walking outside around the lakes was a perfect 'getting away from it all' experience and the friendly and warm attention of Julie, Alex and Jess made us feel... More
