We booked the Ivy Hill Room at this hotel for my 60th birthday several months in advance. There was a Robbie Williams Tribute Night being held the same night and we asked on three occasions if this would interfere with our party and were told no, there would be a buffer room between us. On the afternoon of the event... More

A group of us enjoyed good food in a very convivial banqueting suite where the staff went the extra mile to ensure an excellent time was had by all. The entertainment was ok and encouraged dancing to give the event an excellent atmosphere.

Stayed here a number of times & it gets better with each stay. Receptionists are lovely & the rooms are just beautiful. Cannot believe it's only a 3 star, definitely deserves 5. Free wifi is excellent & the grounds of the hotel are gorgeous.

The staff are charming, the rooms are very well furnished , comfortable and spotlessly clean and there is a very good restaurant Bartellas which seems to be run by separate management. This is a deservedly popular venue for parties on a Saturday night although the venue is separate from the bar and restaurant. What isn't separate is the noise. I... More

This occasion was my wife's 80th birthday at the end of October. The hotel was very cooperative about keeping the event a surprise, going along with my wish to confirm all the arrangements by text or private email.

Lovely hotel with fab room. The hotel staff were really helpful and polite. The room we had was beautiful and the facilities were just what we needed. As we had our children with us they were also well catered for and overall we were really impressed. The quality of breakfast was first class, food was lovely.
