Reviewed December 12, 2013

the room was ok but not all the lights worked. The early breakfast was poor but the later breakfast on our second day was fine.
the sports facilities are quite good as long as you are outside peak hours, although the changing rooms are not as clean as they might be.
the bar was quiet and pleasant. we did not eat at the hotel.
overall a reasonable deal if you get a discount on the rack rates for the rooms.

We were there for a wedding, and were horrified at the almost complete absence of disabled access for the elderly members of our party. At one stage a small steep wooden ramp appeared, but most of the function rooms are accessed by stairs, and this caused us very real problems. This really does need to be sorted out.

Stayed here last night on business. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Pool was lovely, big enough to get some serious exercise and quiet. Drinks in bar not overpriced. Shower good and bed comfortable.Only complaint was that although not dirty, the sheets on the bed had what looked like oil stains on.

Room Tip: I had room 51 a family room but better quality than those in the new wing.

I was advised to keep clear of this hotel by a work colleague due to the amount of Audi, BMW and Mercedes Benz vehicles parked in the car park! In my opinion, if its good enough for them, then it is for me too!
I have stayed here at least seven times and have enjoyed each stay very much. The rooms are great, clean and very comfortable. My preferred room is Room 11 as this was really huge and comfortable and at the time, was unwell. The large TV was excellent in Room 11, much better than in some of the other rooms but no complaints really.
The bar food menu is a little limited (but great food) and there is something on it for everyone's tastes - I'm a fussy eater anyway. The service is excellent by all staff, including the very friendly cleaners, bar and waiting staff. Wi-Fi is a bit hit and miss depending on which room you're allocated to but it is very strong in the bar area. I haven't utilised the recreational facilities at this venue but from all accounts, worthwhile if you're into this kind of thing.
I can't recommend this hotel enough. It is a fantastic place to stay and it adds something special to a trip knowing that you're going to be very comfortable, looked after in a lovely building that I am always sad to leave. Looking forward to my next visit in 2014.

Room Tip: No preference - they're all good but Room 11 is really comfortable.

Booked a long weekend for a very decent price. We wanted a relax hotel with a spa and that is what it is.
Value for money it would be a 4 star but all over I am sorry but have to give it the stars the hotel actually is, 3 stars.
Don't get me wrong, with what niggling points I write here it's not a bad stay by any means, specially not if you get it for a decent price.
Problem points are the Spa. It looks great in the pictures but in reality it needs maintenance. If somebody could start by scrubbing it thoroughly with a limescale remover it might look a lot better. There is in my eyes neglect. Limescale covered tiles, surround of the pool that needs a new floor due to the discoloration, wood that could do at the bottoms with sanding and re staining, the locker rooms look in a way a bit tired, sauna and steam room look a bit tired. It would be good business sense to close it for a week, get a team in, revamp the place as it does have potential to become nice again. But, we did have a good time bubbling away, swimming and steaming/saunaing.
Hotel, main building does look nice on the outside but a few of the side wings are not in style unfortunately. But it looks well kept. On the inside, bit odd reception that does look a bit, uh, primitive is the word I guess. The hotel is a maze too but you will find your way around eventually. Room, we had the cheapest one and it was a bit tight for such a big building but adequate. it was clean, bit dated in style in certain area's but all over good value for money. I bit more light tight curtains would be nice, we had a room with some sunshine in the morning and it was just too light in the room. Reasonably quiet too, but we had a room near the end of the building at the back so that must have helped. Did not make it to breakfasts so no idea how that is.
We had a bit of a mishap with the door lock that did not want to work up on return and even the crew had challenges to get it to work so we went to the Spa and a few hours later once it was finally fixed they brought us the new keys to the Spa, so, nothing really wrong with the service.
So, how to the 3 stars then? Well, the above all make it just give the feel of a 3 star place. Great location for exploring a bit of Wales, not bad for a bid of relaxation, but not perfect either, it needs lifting up a little bit.

We stayed whilst visiting the Ironbridge museums and found it ideally situated.
The hotel has extensive grounds and great facilities including health club and pool. Staff and food were excellent throughout our three night stay. The only downside for us was the lack of seating in our room and a distinct lack of interior design flair, nevertheless, would be happy to recommend it as a peaceful place to stay situated close to the M54.

We recently spent a weekend at this hotel, built in 1718 it is a very large house with extensive grounds. The house has been refurbished to include modern en-suite rooms. The food was in the main excellent and the staff attentive to ones needs. The cons were the number of stairs for elderly folk, no lift, anyone using a wheelchair would need to circumnavigate the house to a back door to get in, very few rooms on ground floor. The house because of its size was like a rabbit warren. The price for B & B was very reasonable, though the food a little pricey.
