We picked this hotel as it was roughly on our route back from Loughborough to the south coast and we had 2 days to play with . Also it was in an area we did not know.
The hotel lent us 2 cycles for the day so we pedalled 12 miles each way to Market Harborough on the disused railway cycle route NCN 6, through two 500 metre tunnels - torch essential. MH is an attractive town.
Service was great, bar meals were good value and plentiful, and we enjoyed pre breakfast swims in a very warm pool. Bedroom was fine but could be noisy had it been busy facing courtyard.
The manager came and chatted with us at breakfast.
A very enjoyable stay
