We stayed at this hotel to celebrate my wife's birthday and asked for a quiet four poster room. When we arrived the reception was extremely busy but due to the efficient receptionists we were quickly booked into the hotel. Our room 316 was on the ground floor at the end of the corridor on the opposite side to the bar and restaurants and the patio doors opened directly onto the golf course so it was very quiet and private.
The room itself was very spacious, spotlessly clean and complete with coffee/tea making facilities, bottled water, biscuits and good quality toiletries. At the entrance end of the room there was a big modern bathroom with separate shower and dual hand basins and at the opposite end of the room a lounge area with a sofa and coffee table. The four poster was central with plenty of room to move around and was extremely comfortable. The décor was modern with plenty of lamps around the room.
The hotel in general had a very nice ambience and the restaurant which we choose was really nice. The service and the food were excellent (presentation and taste) and the choice varied. We opted for the two 8oz steaks with a free bottle of wine offer which cost a reasonable £32. For starters we chose local crab and tempura prawns which were delicious.
Breakfast, which is taken in the carvery restaurant, was a buffet style breakfast and was again excellent with a choice of cereals, fruit, breads and cooked traditional food i.e. eggs, bacon, mushrooms, sausages etc.....all very fresh.
The final checkout was again efficiently handled and we left as very satisfied customers.
