This hotel is good but could definitely be better. The good: The rooms are lovely (choose ground floor facing the golf course if you can... lovely landscaped grounds and beautiful sunsets you can watch from the little patio just outside your room). Bathroom was big with a great shower, deep tub and good lighting (for make up purposes!), the bedroom was big, the bed comfy, and generally clean and well decorated.
The reception staff were varied in friendliness: most of the ladies were lovely but there was one lady who was generally unhelpful (we asked if there was a cash point or a shop anywhere nearby and she just said "no, sorry" ..?!?)
The bar staff were all clearly just there for the money - I can kind of appreciate this as I work as a waitress at a hotel restaurant and it's a huge bugbear of mine when staff can't be bothered to even appear as if they care about what they're doing. I stood at the empty bar waiting to be acknowledged for a good two minutes while 4 staff members did their best to look busy and ignore me. And when when I was served, I felt like I was just a huge pain for them.
The breakfast! Apparently they have an award for this but the brekkie in the hotel I work at is much better and we don't have any award! It was a simple cold and hot buffet. There was a good selection of cereals, fruit, croissants and toast, but the hot buffet was so standard and all a bit greasy and just kept warm. If the brek was a bit more adventurous and made to order, I think that'd be much better.
The breakfast staff however were lovely. When my boyfriend set a croissant on fire, and we asked for copious amounts of butter, coffee, and for eggs to order, they were all very accommodating (and forgiving).
Overall, the Lanhydrock is in a lovely place, the staff are generally nice, and because we saved about £100 on our booking due to a promotion we were happy, but I wouldn't pay full price without expecting more attention to detail and the bits where the hotel fell down to greatly improve.
