We have visited this hotel for the past 5 years and it is still one of the best. The room was spacious, the bed was massive and it was lovely and clean. There are lots of nice touches like the wine glasses, water glasses and bottled water. The bathroom was a little worn with loose tiles but this did not upset us as we are aware the rooms are being upgraded where required and it was all cleaned to a high standard. The view was over the lawn, boats and lake, it was spectacular as the window was the width of the room!
We had an evening meal and breakfast, these were lovely the breakfast was a buffet style full english and you can request poached/fried eggs and black pudding if you want as these are not on the buffet. All the staff were found to be very helpful and polite they even parked our car and brought it back when we requested it. A great place to stay.
