We stayed at Stonelea for 2 nights using a voucher we were gifted. We upgraded to a "luxury" cottage. The word luxury is very misleading here.... This has to be the MOST dated accommodation I have ever stayed in. No TV, original carpet which must have been at least 30 years old, the room had that 'old' smell to it. The cupboard where our mini bar fridge was smelt of mould... and the bathroom had rust/mould too. Real let down in this regard. Would definately say its 2 start accommodation. HOWEVER, having said that, the grounds are excellent! Well kept and simply beautiful! We had a huge variety of activities available to us, which meant we didn't have to leave the grounds at all. There are tennis and badmington courts, a gold course, indoor and outdoor pool (which idn't look very appealing), beauty centre, fishing, bicyles... and I think I covered everything. The food was outstanding! Breakfast was good which good variety! And dinner - all i will say is the best slow cooked lamb I have ever had, and AMAZING deserts!
What is disappoing is that they have allot of facilities that due to lack of maintenance are unuseable. The swimming pools, steam room (which had mushrooms growing in it) and sauna room and not maintained. Very sad as these would be great selling points.
Overall i rate this place 3 stars, as although there were a number of let downs, we had a great time playing tennis, badmington, golf, dinning and enjoying wine.
And the staff were lovely! :)
Would visit again when they spend some money on upgrading the rooms.
