Were lucky enough to have booked our 'Summer Mondays' break in one of the hottest weeks of the year and never imagined when I booked we would be utilising the outdoor pool and sunbeds!!! This is a most impressive looking hotel which overall lives up to expectations. Reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were allowed early access to our room which was a nice surprise, but we immmediately took advantage of the pool and spa. Lovely to have the opportunity to use an outdoor pool and spa, but it was too hot outside to even use the hot tub!!. Indoor pool nice but not overly large. Changing rooms clean and well appointed. Cream tea was included in our package and it was ok, but have to say if I had paid separately at £9.00 per person I would have been very disappointed. The inclusive evening meal, though, was superb. My fiance even had the opportunity to try frogs legs which were yummy!!! A special mention must go to the waiters who were absolutely superb...a credit to their mentors. Breakfast the following morning was also good - although let down by VERY slow staff serving coffee. I have seen this mentioned on previous reviews so the hotel REALLY needs to address this as it is obviously an ongoing problem. Our room was adequate although sadly we had a view of the car park which was a little disappointing but we really did not spend enough time in there to worry too much about it. Have to say the air con in the room was MOST welcome!!! The bed was extremely soft and not what we are used to, but actually was surprisingly comfortable. As part of the deal we had 2 tickets to Warwick Castle so this made this deal excellent value for money which for this reason I can highly recommend.
