Stayed in this hotel for a 1 night dinner, B & B. We were a bit early but were able to check in right away and our room was ready. We were pleasantly surprised to find our room on the 5th floor, to the front, with great view over the surrounding countyside and roundabout. The room itself was extremely comfortable, well furnished with lovely bathroom. About an hour later my DH and myself headed down to the leisure area for swim. Again we found this to be impeccibly clean and well kept. Its not exactly a pool for serious swimming as its more laid out for children. But we enjoyed our "dip", our jacuzzi, steam and sauna and we passed a pleasant few hours there. It was not too busy either.
We had been told on booking that the restaurant would be closed on the Sunday night and we would be eating in the bar. However, we were led to believe that they would be serving the dinner menu in the bar. This was not so and we choose our "dinner" from the bar menu. I didn"t particularly like the Red Bar; one half of it had high stools and high tables and the other half had sofas and low tables. IMO not really suitable for having a meal. Aside from that small quibble we found the food to be excellent with great service.
We made use of the leisure centre the following morning before breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast as a result.
The only downside for me was the heat and stuffiness of the bedroom. We like our fresh air at night but the window only opened a tiny bit and the aircon did not appear to work. Its only a small thing as I feel it would have been worse had it been too cold!
Overall really enjoyed our stay there and would go back if we got the chance to do so!
Found staff to be friendly and efficient.
