We booked a weekend here for the xmas lights turn on after seeing good reviews on here. We booked the best double room at the top of the house.As far as I could tell the only thing that made it a 'superior' room was the fact that it had a DVD player, not really what you need for a weekend in the lakes !! The first problem was the room, especially bathroom, had a very fusty damp smell. Even though it was quite chilly we needed the bedroom window wide open the whole weekend. The company we booked through failed to inform us it was only a continental breakfast, now the choice for a continental breakfast was good. but come on people are away for a weekend, break out the bacon and eggs !!. And why are the biscuits on ration ?? 2 people in a room, 1 packet of biscuits on the tea tray !! that and a hole and badly worn room carpet is why I dont think its really a 4 star !, its clean, its pleasent, its not cheap and if it is sooo nice surely the owners would live there!!! Oh and finally....the jacuzi bath....very relaxing, until the next door room use theirs, then its like you are in a cement mixer !
