“Nice hotel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Stayed for two nights with my partner. The room was standard, nothing special, but nice and warm, clean with a comfortable bed. Most of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The grounds of the hotel are nice with pretty views and just a short walk to the hotel. Best thing about the hotel was definitely the food in the bar - delish!! And good value for money too. The leisure facilities were just ok, and thought it was a bit mean that guests have to pay to even use the thermal suite in the spa even if they do not want a treatment. Overall we had a nice stay, but probably won't go back.

My daughter and I stayed at the hotel over the New year, the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The facilities and the pool were excellent and adaptable to our needs. It was a relaxed, friendly place to stay which provided just the right atmosphere and environment. We would definately stay thier again.

Stayed for a night away with my partner, room was old and shabby and dark, poor room service, reception friendly and helpful, nice spa, bar was full of children running riot and so we left to a much nicer local bar, breakfast was busy with only one waitress, food was average.

Having been to this hotel 3 times in the past,we had an idea of what service to expect.Till now my rating would have been 4 star but as TripAdvisor doesn't give half stars I downgraded you to 3 star.Once you have a car it is a very central location for several visitor attractions.The reception staff very helpful,Library Bar at times not enough staff so left waiting and then we had incorrect food served and had a further wait.When we complained we did get apology and redress but that's not the same as getting the experience you set out to get and pay for.We also had a heating issue in our room which was settled by giving us a convector heater.I applaud the efforts being made with environmental issues being tackled but not to the disadvantage of your guests. Both Gary, and Monica did a lot to resolve our issues but unfortunately didn't succeed fully. We had one meal in The Restaurant where Monica attended to our every needs she was attentitive without being overbearing,well done.We do hope to return in the future when we look forward to redressing your star rating.Thank you.

Just back from a very nice weekend staying at the Brandon.
The staff are amazing and no request seems to much for them, the hotel itself is charming with a nice mix of the old and new - the open fireplace in reception and the Library Bar are a nice place to relax after a day exploring the area (highly recommended) and the numerous pieces of art throughout the hotel are a very nice touch.
The Bar and Restaurant are top class, the food is amazing and they have a very decent wine list.
The rooms are spacious with daily housekeeping (towel changes etc) and the bed's very comfortable and big.
The Leisure Centre on site was a nice surprise, a decent pool, steam room, gym etc.
We didnt try the spa, but did have a look inside and I must say it's very well presented - something for our next visit here.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to explore this area, it's perfect for couples and families alike and they are sure to make you feel welcome whatever the purpose of your stay - would definitely come back here.

The website makes this hotel look like its in acres of rolling land but its not. Nice, but not a country getaway. The breakfast is very tasty and the staff are lovely.

The spa costs money though which is surprising.

Had recent visit for family event. Our room was standard double and was fine except for some cleanliness issues. Unfortunately our sleep was interrupted by a stupid guest smoking in the room which caused alarms to go off . The restaurant was excellent and food was very well presented. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Some areas of the hotel could do with a makeover
