Stayed here for my sons wedding - booked a double room for two nights. When we arrived we were gobsmacked at the size of the room - we could have coped but the bed was ridiculous for two people it was only 4ft. I did inquire whether another room was available but was told that they were either full or all the beds were the same size!!! many of our party ended up sleeping on the floor was in this day and age is totally unacceptable.
The reception staff try very hard to meet any of your requests but they must be fed up with people complaining about the beds.
This venue is firstly a conference centre who at some point decided to be a wedding venue as well - well i am sorry but you need to decide what you are because it is clearing not working as both.
The wedding itself was a great day (wedding room is tatty and stained carpet with holes in) but we were only looking at the happy couple. The food was a bit of a shambles - even though they had our pre order and a table plan the waitresses still wandered round various tables asking who had ordered what.
Come on Lydiard spend some money and upgrade your accommodation, wedding room etc - needless to say we wont be staying here again :-(
