Myself and my partner stayed here in December as it's where her company Christmas party was being held.
First of all, good luck finding the place without satnav. We were heading down muddy single track roads until we were brought to the entrance by the wonder that is TomTom. The approach down the drive is impressive, but once you get inside you'll realise this is really the epitome of corporate conference boredom.
Think shiny suits, think flip charts and The Office, think trying to stay awake in a life-sappingly dire seminar, and you'll have Wokefield Park.
There's even a BMW training centre by the reception, in case you too want to sell 3-series to slimy estate agents. You can learn all about the different types of alloy wheels and paint finishes.
The room was standard mid-range hotel fayre, complete with Corby trouser press and iron chained to the wall. Utterly characterless room though, which sums up the whole place really. Downstairs there's a bar that is trying very hard to be chic with brown leather sofas. The restaurant is OK, and does a good cooked breakfast, although if the quality of the Christmas dinner we had is anything to go by, I wouldn't expect too much of a proper meal there.
It's obvious this place caters to the corporate conference market and that's exactly why you should stay away, unless you are forced to stay by your boss.
