My friend and I booked a 2night Spa break and arrived on the spectacular lake setting full of optimism. This did not last long. The reception area was shabby(to say the least)and we stood for a good 5 minutes while the receptionist was taking another booking-even though we could be seen from the office no one offered to help us. After check in we went to The Tavern for lunch-big mistake. Took them 25mins to bring the worst coffee I have ever tasted(machine in pub broken) mediocre food. We then decided to check the spa-it looked about 100 years old. Our room, which was terrible, made us decide to leave. We were offered another room which we turned down and in all fairness to the Manager he did offer free accomodation(in view of how far we had travelled)but obviously we refused as did not want it to seem this was our aim. The setting of the hotel is superb but unless, in my opinion, the issues in this hotel are addressed it is all wasted. I have re-read some of the reviews from other guests as well as re-checking the website and actually feel I must have been in the wrong hotel!!!
