Arrived Friday afternoon,asked if we could have coffee by the lake, "no not until 5pm" Room with lake view very lovely. Mattress on bed very uncomfortable, bath mat wouldn't dry the dog with it. Had to stand on bed to put main light on, one bedside lamp not working. Bedding old, and room needed decorating but clean. Bathroom old, water... More

All the staff were helpful and friendly and the situation of the hotel on the lake is beautiful. On the whole everything was fine, but the hotel "felt" tired and dated. I had a very large room (Room 2) but was very plan and the spare "bed" looked more like an army surplus bed. A nice sofa bed and a... More

There's not much to write home about with this place, it did the job but we won't be coming back again. Rooms aren't great, service is sub par but the attitude of staff is the worst. There's no structure with loads of guess work going on all the time. I think the worst thing though is the atmosphere of the... More

We stayed for one night whilst travelling and we thought it was perfectly adequate. We enjoyed dinner ,we enjoyed our night cap from the bar which we took outside by the lake, felt our room was ok and breakfast was very good. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful and we would happily visit again in future.

Food takes for ever to arrive,An hour wait till sandwich was cancelled,We were told the new chef could not cope.They require immediate payment on any food ordered ,not possible to put it in your room and pay when you check out. Breakfast we got was one slice of ham and cheese,and a small piece of bread. Never stay here again... More

I feel your review is mainly based on the fact you couldn't charge food or drink to your room. You were told by our staff that in order to charge to your room, we will require a swipe of a card to open a tab due to your room being paid for by someone else. Your reply was that you... More

We spent three nights at this hotel so we could attend our granddaughter's wedding. The view of the lake from our room was splendid including all the wildlife that went with it. The room was very spacious and in fair condition. The food was of a good quality (also thank you Wendy for your daily interest, you are an asset... More

Stayed here overnight on a coach trip weekend break to London. It was a bit dated but rooms were very clean and comfortable. The evening meal and breakfast was adequate in spite of us being referred to as "the coach people" by some of the staff. It was very quiet and peaceful even though there was a wedding reception going... More

The rooms are very spacious with good facilities, however the decor in the rooms is a little tired and could do with being freshly decorated. The bathroom badly needs attention. The WI Fi was not working when I arrived and was still not fixed until the morning, this caused me problems as it was a business trip. The food in... More
