Booked in for our wedding night, turned up @ 1230... Would have been expected to have been shown to our room not given general directions.. As it was obvious it was our special night in our wedding clobber... And told where breakfast was in the morning... Better service in a travel lodge

We went for an early Mother's Day lunch in Charlie's Bar. The restaurant is not open for lunch at the weeks due to weddings. The house is beautiful and the staff very helpful but little things let the place down. Dry chicken in the burger, cold vegetables on cold plates, ginger ale passed off as ginger beer. Empty tissue boxes...

This hotel has everything, spa, gym, pool, restaurant and parking. The setting and scenery are stunning. Whats more it is behind a security gate which gives it a very safe and secluded feel. My room was perfect, extremely clean and made up each day. The staff were very courteous and friendly and I loved the fact that they had free...

We stayed in the manor house part of the hotel, which is on the island in the lake. It's a lovely historic building in a beautiful setting. The staff were friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our short stay. Plus points were the pool and hot tub, the great views, a four poster bed, and a very good breakfast....

Late check in, hadn't familiarized myself with the hotel appearance so just went on the sat nav directions which brought me straight to the hotel entrance. It was late and very dark when I arrived and somehow tried checking in to the golf club which is part way down the driveway to the hotel! Perhaps some lighting near the signs...

It is the first time we've been to the hotel and it really is beautiful. The views from the swimming pool are wonderful. The afternoon tea was scrummy! I couldn't eat all the cakes. We will definitely be back.

I stayed here for 1 night on a business trip as I needed to be in Wakefield first thing the next day. I arrived in the dark, and whilst fairly easy to find it's not the easist experience to arrive in the dark, a bit of forewarning about the single track approach would have been useful. After parking in the...
