We arrived in the middle of an international golfing tournament so the hotel was full but we were given a lovely large room with sitting area.... More

From the word go all the staff were polite and friendly especially the breakfast staff who were particularly so. The hotel is big and airy with an impressive reception, plenty of parking. The rooms (we had 219) are large, well appointed with an excellent bathroom. The massive bed was very comfy and we had a lovely view. The evening meal... More

I have been staying in the hotel for the last few weeks doing some on going training. And without fail there is someone on the reception desk to greet you with a smile.

Just returned from a 2 day golf stay with my wife at ESN.

We would recommend to anyone wanting to get away for a short golf break. Didn't use the health club or spa but looked nice. Evening... More

We attended a wedding in the area and stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. The lobby is impressive but the rest of the hotel is a letdown. The food in the bar and restaurants is ok but nothing amazing. We had to open our own bottle of wine during lunch which was shocking! Why am I having to tip... More

We arrived on Saturday 9th September and checked in. We were not informed about the key system and when we arrived the doors to gain access to various areas of the hotel did not open.

We stayed for a golfing weekend 9/10 August 2014. The golf on both courses was fantastic even after the downpour on Sunday morning which resulted in both courses being closed for the morning.
