“Good food, but just misses top notch”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Excellent canapes and starters, thought that main courses and desserts were good but not excellent . Yoghurt panacotta certainly didn't work, very grainy end product.
Service rather slow between ordering and actually sitting down to meal. Staff very friendly and helpful

“I hope you read this before you book!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

We had an offer for a stay here, an evening meal breakfast and a couple of treatments. The price appeared reasonable given the deal so we booked up. This included booking a specific slot for the treatments too at the time of booking which was nice so we could plan our day.
Turned up on time for our treatments to be told they had no record of us making a booking.
Spa were apologetic and suggested I speak to the owner of the hotel about the cock up. Spa could only book us in the following day which was very inconvenient to us but it was that or no treatments.
**The important bit**
Spoke to the owner who wasn't particularly concerned and offered us nothing as a gesture of goodwill for spoiling our day.
Now call me old fashioned regarding customer service but we were offered nothing at all. I wasn't expecting a free trip but maybe a sincere apology and a couple of drinks ? Too much to ask?
In summary I wont be going back and I wouldn't advise anyone else to go either in case they cock it up for them too.
In todays climate of rightly expecting exquisite customer service it appears this place don't care. As there is plenty of alternatives I suggest you look elsewhere.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 1, 2010

We were staying at the hotel for a weekend break and ate at the restaurant both nights. The food was superb, easily worthy of a Michelin star and so reasonable - £38.50 p.p. for four courses.
