We stayed for 4 nights in the new wing, facing the back garden. Lovely large well-equipped ground floor room, fresh milk for tea at our request. The food & service were excellent, all staff friendly and attentive, but beware -- the hotel is popular with large coach parties who eat their meals in the sole dining-room. Breakfast is served from 7-30 to 10-00 but because the tour parties have a different (and more limited) selection, the full buffet is not produced until after 9-00. You may order from the menu card but this is not the same as choosing your own. The parties can be VERY noisy and turning up the background music only serves to increase the shouting between tables. This is especially unpleasant for the evening meal - hardly the relaxing ambience that the hotel proudly boasts. The wedding parties have a separate banqueting suite but spill out into the gardens (which are inviting) This wears a bit thin at 2am when they are still singing outside the window ! The hotel would be much improved by having another dining area - they seem to be able to cope admirably with large numbers and at no time was service to ourselves impaired. On this point alone we would not return unless we were well out of the holiday season.
