Stayed with another couple for golf and spa. Nice hotel in lovely setting, room was comfortable and spacious. 2 good golf courses especially the Premier course and our wives enjoyed the spa treatments . Dinner was ok but wine expensive. Breakfast was average. Our biggest concern was the cost of drinks, felt ripped off! Overall, an enjoyable stay but take... More

Stayed on a dinner bed and breakfast deal. Found the restaurant and food very good. Hotel was clean tidy and well maintained, spa or golf not used. Impressed with the quality of room, spacious and cleaned with great attention to detail, well done. Staff friendly and helpful. Drinks in the bar a bit pricey. Would stay here again.

Check in was courteous and our room excellent with a large bed and a well appointed quality bathroom. We went along to the spa and were greeted by a... More

The room was beautiful and spacious. Better than any hotel I have stayed in. The bed was really comfortable and I loved they had big heavey curtains with black out... More

We had a suite which was nice, no air-con though so room too hot. Drinks were very pricy, more so than normal hotel prices. We had a package which included dinner. This had a £25 allowance, this was only just enough to get a main course!! We had the smoked salmon to start, and it was just smoked salmon &... More

Arrived Saturday afternoon, had time to chill out before dinner. I had already booked our table in advance, meals were both beautiful and quality of food was excellent. We enjoyed our three course meal. The following day my husband took to the golf course and I spent the time in the spa. Had a wonderful treatment and enjoyed the relaxation... More

We found this hotel last minute while in the area researching gardens. The price we paid was amazing given the quality of the hotel. Everything was perfect for us. The room is excellent, everything worked and the spa was open late so we made the most of it. There are a number of different steam rooms. The only small grip... More
