We came here in early December and it had just been refurbished. The whole place was spotless and perfectly equipped. The carpets were plush, the bedding lovely, large four poster beds, the bathroom was huge with a large jacuzzi bath and a walk in shower and two sinks, we had a kitchen that was well stocked with crockery etc, all the essentials if you wanted to cook.
The garden led onto the lake and the view was fantastic, the gardens were beautifully maintained as was all the exterior furniture.
There was a guests area with a large tv, dining room table and chairs, a courtesy bar and full size snooker table.
The breakfast was wonderful and all the staff were friendly and helpful.
All in all a great stay. This hotel is a little out of the way but worth the effort.
