We had a lovely welcome when we arrived all our cases were taken from the coach and whilst we waited to be issued with our keys our luggage was taken to our rooms and waiting for us. Room was large and inviting spasious wardrobes plenty of drawer space TV hair dryer iron and board and a good shower as well.
As we was a large group we had our evening meals in the crystal room well laid out and inviting the staff were friendly and efficient meals were well done and hot (well done to all in the kitchens and waiting staff) so nice to have a meal that is still hot. And the choice was good as well, and the afternoon cake was wonderful both the black forest gatueax and the carrot cake were both lovely and moist.
The breakfasts were served in the Huttons room buffet style but toast and tea coffee was served at table the only downside was that we was such a large group you had to wait for a table (maybe we should have had our breakfast in the crystal room as well) again all the staff were helpful and friendly.
We did find that the bar prices were a bit steep but it is a hotel after all.
On the Friday night we had a very wet windy night that put the TVs in the rooms one side of the hotel out of action and unfortunately no engineer till Monday so not able to wind down with a bit of telly before bed.
This hotel is a spa as well and I booked a massage for the saturday evening after a trip out I had to fill a form and discuss any medical issues that I might have and then went into a treatment room where I was asked to choose the oil that I would like and then left to uh undress and lay on the bed ready for the young lady to come back and I will say it is the best 45 minute massage I have had in a long time as I have a lot of shoulder issue she did very well and relived a lot of my pain for me (thank you for the best nights sleep in a long time normally only get 2 hrs because shoulder wakes me up) no pain that night. Only wished I had longer there to maybe have nails/pedicure and other treatments.
We would stay here again well done all.
