Only stayed here for 1 night however the hotel was excellent. This was our first stay and we booked a luxury room which was superb. This is a newer room and had a lake view with its own small terrace. The room itself was large and very nicely finished. Could not fault the room at all.
We had nice lunch in the huntsmans lodge which is a great space overlooking the lake and the food was good if a tad pricey for the sandwiches we ordered. The breakfast was also very good and there is plenty of selection. We did not have dinner in the hotel.
Staff all seemed very helpful and pleasant from the moment we arrived to leaving.
The only negative point was the main bar which was quite small and lacked any sort of atmosphere as there was no background music. On the Friday night we were the only two in the bar at 10pm although the drinks were not the cheapest (£5.50 for pint of beer) therefore maybe this explains why it was so quiet as there is not much else closeby.
Overall, a very nice hotel and would definitely consider staying again.
