Had two long weekends for business at the end of January/beginning of February. Comfortable bed, reliable broadband, and (on dinner, b&b rate) generous meal allowance giving access to good food.
Four points I would raise with the hotel (and did on their online survey!):
1. Litter out in the car park area (and hotel litter that has blown over their gates towards the lake) needs attention.
2. Friendliness depends on who is on duty! Some of the reception staff might have made me turn away!
3. Some breakfast staff were better than others. One morning I was just waiting to be shouted at (because they forgot my coffee); also, watching two overseas waitresses talking about the guests in their own language made me glad to be a polite guest who got a smile from them (they forgot that we might not know their language, but they still have body language!).
4. I was in the hotel for the 2012 snow and again for the 2013 snow. I might have expected more of the paths/parking areas to be gritted/salted.
Overall, I am rating the hotel well, simply because the vast majority of staff have been super throughout.
