Just like some of the other reviews we found the accommodation block around the courtyard very dated. The room was clean, very warm but so dark. I don't think they would pass building regulations today with regard to the size of the windows. The outside garden areas need some radical work. I cannot name staff but some were excellent and others need some more training. We stayed 3 nights and on each night they had a wedding function so maybe they were stretched. The restaurant area in the conservatory appeared quite pleasant. On the first night we were shown to our table but I could not sit down as spare chairs were stacked against my chair due to another table having swapped chairs for baby chairs. The waitress should have noticed this issue. The next night we had a different table. If you want a romantic meal in candlelight with no other lighting and you need to use your mobile phone as a torch to illuminate the menu then ask for table 18!
There seemed to be confusion about the breakfasts as they had menus on the table but on two of our days they had a buffet running. The last dinner was spoilt by nobody asking want we would like after the main meal. We wanted desert and coffee but having waited 20 minutes we walked out in disgust. The final breakfast was also spoilt by the waitress asking whether she had taken our order - she hadn't! There was certainly a lack of training and things must be improved by management. Also - get those mats cleaned in the restaurant and table 27 was horribly sticky to the touch.
