Went for a surprise party with 48 people in our group. Accommodation is 5 star and you couldn't fault the cleanliness and quality of the rooms. The carvery meal was put out promptly but the children's meals were served 10 - 20 minutes after the adults serve-your-self meal was put out. The breakfast service was very slow with some servers...
