We were invited to a wedding here and decided to book a room so we could enjoy the pool and facilities as well as the wedding. The food at the wedding was lovely (we were there for the evening only) but there was soup, great bacon rolls or sausage in buns, everything hot and served with a smile. Bar staff also prompt and provided good service.
Pool and Jacuzzi were fine and not too busy.
We had asked for a room that had been refurbished as I had read that some rooms were a bit tired and our room was large and well decorated. We also asked that it was not facing the front as others had said it was a bit noisy when guests leave late at the front. So our view was over a roof but I had expected that so did not mind.
The things that We did not like were:
- We ordered some food in the room and the chap who brought it up forgot to bring up the wine and we had to send him back twice as there was no salt in the salt cellar. Also the tray was still outside our room when we got back from the wedding reception and the next morning, one of my pet hates in a hotel!
- At about 1am in the morning the kitchen staff decided to empty the bottles from the bar into something else making a really loud noise which must have woken a number of guest with windows facing into the inner "courtyard". Certainly woke me!!
So in summary , an ok hotel but not great. I certainly don't think it is worth the full price we would have paid if we had not been wedding guests.
