I was sceptical anyway after reading the reviews on here! We were bought this as a gift, although I wouldn’t give this as a gift to my worst enemy!
It started with us arriving and waiting at the reception desk whilst the staff stood in the bar area and occasionally stared up at us and walking off. We decided to ring the bell to which a very rude man shouted at us “can you just wait a minute” he was clearly very busy standing there doing nothing! A lady then came and dealt with us, nothing friendly about the service here! A very large man then strolled up to her and they talked between them and he didn’t even acknowledge us being there. She told us our room number and said we could eat between certain times and that was that. I had to ask where our room was and she pointed towards the woods across the car park! The room was ok, nothing special, the majority of the light switches didn’t work and the way they had wallpapered over the plug holes was especially nice!
We decided to attempt the afternoon tea. We were brought over a plate each of stale sandwiches, pre-bought cake and a scone that had been heated in the microwave, we knew it had been as the condensation was still on the plate and my fiancée enjoyed a luke warm cup of coffee. This came with some rather face churning “bubbly”!! It doesn’t help when none of the staff seem to speak much English or even know what’s going on! After enduring this for just as long as we could stand we decided to leave, we didn’t stay for dinner or even the night! Overall it was terrible, the nicest thing about the experience was the drive out of the car park! How they can advertise this as £161 I don’t know, I wouldn’t pay £1. If you still stay here after reading all the bad reviews more fool you!!
