This is a lovely, clean and well-maintained hotel. These characteristics are the ones of which I am most conscious — while being in my room or when reading or writing, relaxing in the lounge space* etc. The room service is clearly evidently of high standard, as you do not notice the heavy film of dust, that is so frequently present...

We were lucky enough to get a deal on Secret Escapes of £50 a night, including half board for two days, wow! When we arrived we did not like the room as it had no view and was cold. So my wife called reception and asked if it was possible to have a different room. We'll blow me down they...

Paid for a single room, but given a free upgrade while booking as no single rooms left. Sweet! Very polite, helpful and friendly book-in and reception staff. The room was as one would expect from a 3-star. Bit tired, but acceptably clean. Fairly quiet room and soft matress (not my preference) but decent nights sleep nonetheless. The pool is not...

We stayed here between xmas and new year 2016/17 We arrived early but were allowed to leave our car onsite whilst we went for out for a few hours. Upon check in, the staff were most friendly and professional. They all had appropriate dress code and their manner was excellent, as expected in a 'proper' hotel. Initially, we were disappointed...

I was amazed at how our party night was organised, food presented and friendliness of the staff. Our event for the Ladies Club in Dorset was a Christmas party night and it was a success down to the hotel support and attention to detail. Thank you.
