Staff far too busy doing 'stuff' to notice customers. Tracking down staff in a 5 start hotle to purchase a drink is not customer service. The 2 nights stay was littered with a huff and a buff waiting for staff to be available to serve us. Some tried but these became overwhelmed at times.

A good hotel which looked beautiful in excellent weather. Slightly let down by a few 'tired' touches Breakfast good, but the evening meal, which as a group meal was only average Beautiful location alongside golf course

This was our first visit to this hotel although not our first stay at a Macdonald. The hotel is set in delightful surroundings with easy access and parking. Staff were friendly and helpful making for a very enjoyable stay.

What a beautiful setting for a fantastic relaxing hen weekend for my friend. Ideal suite for all the hens to get together! Food was great in the evening and a good selection to choose from for breakfast with as much coffee as we needed! Spa treatments excellent, staff were helpful and friendly.

Very enjoyable break, with friendly staff. A lot of the staff were quite young, but were eager to please and they all worked hard. Very impressed with bedroom, which was large, had sofa, chair and king size bed. The mattress was a bit too hard for me. Lovely bathroom with large shower, bath etc.

Location, rooms, spa are all very good, little maintainence needed in some, ie: shower heads loose not holding position. Staff are great, they talk too you if thats what you want, but a little more training, or some experienced hands about would help.
