Myself and my partner stayed in this hotel for a relaxing weekend away. We were a bit sceptical about going to the hotel after reading some of the reviews, however we decided to try it as we wanted to stay somewhere a bit different and the value of the package was great.
We stayed in a suite which was lovely, and the bathroom had a free standing bath. Bed was very cosy and comfy and the room was lovely and warm. (On the downside, if you are fussy, a paint job is needed, as there are some cracks etc on the walls and ceilings) The bathroom could have been slightly cleaner and the toliet seat needs to be changed. These are only small things. I am quite fussy. The view from the room was lovely and we didn't hear noise from other rooms.
The staff were very pleasant and fulfilled any requests we had.
Like the other comment about breakfast, we got it to the room on both mornings and did not get exactly what we ordered. We rang down and explained this and we got what we ordered delivered to our room about 5mins later. The food was lovely. One of the nicest breakfasts I have had in a hotel.
I was a little disappointed to be told the restaurant would not open on the Sunday evening and the Monk's Kitchen closed at 7pm, so there was nowhere for a proper meal that evening, but the food in the Monks Kitchen was lovely and great value.
Overall, yes improvements could be made, but for the price you are paying this is a lovely place to go.
