Our family stayed here to go to a wedding. It looked promising as we drove up, peaceful and scenic.
The lady that booked us in was great, very helpful and cheerful. In fact, all the the staff we dealt with over the two days were fine.
The rooms weren't huge but clean and modern. I would say that, whatever that prickly stuff in the pillows is, it needs to be disposed of straight away.
Food (breakfast) was a disappointment. There is a lot on offer, including a variety of smoothies, but the quality wasn't great. I like fresh orange juice in the morning, unfortunately the kind on offer here was awful. I seem to remember many years ago, when proper fruit juice wasn't in vogue, there was a powdered orange juice drink, and this was what it tasted like. Not acceptable when pure juice is so cheap nowadays.
The buffet breakfast items were dried out, but I suppose that is the danger of buffets. Don't get me wrong, I cleared my plate but I wouldn't have been happy had I paid £13 for it. At least on a B & B basis, you don't really take notice of the poor value.
I can't comment on the quality of the restaurant food, although it did seem on the expensive side (£13 for fish and chips). The bar was expensive as well.
In summary though, no really serious complaints and the facilities were good, including a gym and spa at no additional cost, and free coffee machines dotted round so there were endless cappachinos, hot chocolates and lattes on tap. Internally the place isn't exactly warm and inviting, but I suppose it is primarily a conference centre. A bit clinical and not somewhere you would take someone for a romantic getaway. But it does the job at a reaonable price and I would happily stay here on my own if I needed to be in the area again.
