We recently attended a wedding at Rushpool Hall and stayed overnight in a room on the second floor.
The grounds are nice and it was lovely to see the wildlife. The staff were friendly and did a great job in assisting a guest when she required medical attention.
The food at the wedding was okay, although the main meal was cavery which each guest had to leave their table for. I am a fan of puddings and had the choice of two however did not rate either of them! The canapes, or lack of them were not great. Unfortunately by the time the waiter greeted us with the canape plates there were not enough canapes to go round.
The room was 'standard' in terms of the layout and the decor and bathroom were slightly outdated. We did not use the shower as it was over the bath and look unappealing having found three hairs upon our check-in to the room. Before breakfast we made a cup of tea and upon reaching for the one packet of biscuits in the room, a biscuit flew out the wrapper! The cleaner from the previous check-out had clearly not checked the tea tray and found the half eaten packet of biscuits!
The buffet breakfast was warm and half of the breakfast items were inedible. We hate waste however ended up leaving half of our breakfast. There was plastic found in an egg and sausages and beans tasted cheap. The bacon, mushrooms and hash brown were fine. We didn't touch the cereals as the majority of them had been poured into plastic containers which puts me off!
The room was fine for an overnight stay and for the minimal duration we were in there. I would not recommend the room for a romantic getaway.
The venue could be great however it appears that all the little touches are missing. The venue could do with some money being invested into getting it up to scratch in terms of the decor and making the grounds have that bit more 'edge'. The hotel reminds me of a hotel from the Best Western chain.
