“Some work to do”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Internet, unavailable except in the reception and lobby bar.
Noisy ventilation in the bathroom (Room 231) though on other floor levels, starts at 5pm til 8am!
Temporary issues with the Jacuzzi and Steam Room in the spa
Unable to get a reservation for dinner, in a remote country hotel
Receptionists that really didn't 'cut the mustard' or show real interest

So that's the grumbles over with, now the positives

Great location, great potential.
Well equiped rooms, apart from the noisy bathroom ventilation system
Theres an onsite The Tree Bar where the staff are excellent, so is the food (and the Guiness)
Excellent breakfast menu selection and again happy staff help get the day of to good start.

Room Tip: request a room away from the staircase / lift

Executive room, number 8, is a good size, adequately furnished and comfortable but badly lit - equally, the heating is inadequate, but on the plus side, it is very quiet. The Dobson Restaurant is pleasant, dimly lit and the food and service are very good. Overall, the Staff are very experienced and offer very good service. The public rooms are pleasant but again dimly lit which makes reading quite difficult. However, as experienced Christmas Break customers we were disappointed at the offering.

Room Tip: Unable to comment as I only have experience of room 8 which is some considerable distance from the r...

Our stay at Linden Hall can be summed up in two words - massively disappointing. The hotel was freezing everywhere we went and even though a heater was brought to our room it made little difference. In the pub we sat huddled around the table with our coats on and a radiator between our table and the next. The couple next to us were as cold as we were and still another couple we met complained about the temperature too. The food was excellent in the pub and for breakfast the next morning. This was the only positive about our stay. The leisure facilities were grubby and in need of a face lift. The swimming pool was too hot and the jacuzzi was too cold as well as being full of sand and surrounded by dirty, rusty pillars. My wife had a massage in the morning which she said was terrible and the room in which she had it was freezing cold too! We have two young children and as such lead very busy and hectic lives and rarely get a chance to get away on our own. We chose Linden Hall to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary but really wish we hadn't. We will certainly not stay there again.

With 20years experience in the hospitality trade between myself and my new wife, I think we know excellent service when we see it. Therefore Linden Hall had a lot to live up to for our Wedding day, I have to say they did it with flying colours.

Everything was fantastic with even Seamus the general manager popping in to say hello in the morning, (nice touch).

Julia was on hand throughout the day with our every request and did a fantastic job, the food was 1st class and the grounds are 2nd to none!

All in all Linden Hall was the perfect venue for the happiest day of our lives, Thank You all Linden Hall, you now have life long fans!

Went to a Christmas party and stayed night. Lovely place, great rooms. Staff and food great. If you are looking for venues with a difference for Christmas this is the place. The rooms were very comfortable and breakfast next morning was waiter served and top class.

My husband booked a two night stay to celebrate our anniversary - I was thrilled! We stayed 11/12/12 for two nights. The reception area is open the log fire made the entrance warm and welcoming. We spent the first hour with champagne to celebrate our event. Next stop was the Spa - a good place to re-charge batteries, the service and treatments were excellent. We found the service area clean and professional (as were the staff). Excellent value! We are pleased to recommend this hotel for three main reasons: 1) a full wedding and reception and evening event took place during our stay - congratulations to management who ensured that we as guests were not disturbed in any way by the celebrations of the day. 2) All our meals were excellent, including a full English Breakfast and evening meal, quality and presentation-excellent. 3) Our room was excellent with a view of the golf course and surrounding landscape, Above all we congratulate all members of staff who at all times were helpfull, polite and very courteous. ***

Room Tip: Choose a room on the ground floor which has easy access to Spa and leisure pool.
