We came for a weekend getaway. It was wonderful. Staff were friendly and professional on check in. We were greeting by a rather dapper concierge with top hat and tails. The uniforms are really rather good! Our room was beautiful. We paid an upgrade for one of the Suites and I must say you certainly get what you pay for.... More

The cream tea was good as was service, however, it was a little awkward that we had to email the voucher during our tea. Would of been easier to let us know it needed to be printed or emailed before arrival. We used the spa facilities which were OK but not overly clean, the changing rooms were far too small... More

I cannot recommend this hotel. Our experience was horrendous. The hotel messed up our booking and despite having 2 rooms available, decided we could not have these. When we asked very calmly what the issue was, we were shouted at in the Foyer! The service was deplorable as was the follow up from the Front of house manager. Met another... More

"sinawill77" is correct, they cannot recommend this hotel as they quite simply did not stay here. "sinawill77" booking reference was very clear, their reservation was for the next day and they subsequently tried to check in a day early. The hotel had been fully booked on the Saturday they tried to check-in on for over four weeks and "sinawill77” booking... More
