We stayed here for 3 nights from Thursday to Sunday having chosen it as we had previously attended weddings here.
When we arrived they were awaiting the first wedding of the weekend. Being disabled I found that the distance to the room was far enough and the 2 fire doors we passed through meant that we didn't hear anything from the weddings at all which was a pleasant surprise.
The room was spacious and well appointed but over warm even without the heating on. The beds were a good size but very firm, as were the pillows and duvet. We had asked to avoid feather bedding due to asthma so this may not be representative of the hotel in general.
Party due to the distance to the Bistro we decided to have breakfast in our room as there was a good table and chairs provided. There is a little sheet to complete to request everything you want for breakfast which you hang on the outside of the door before 2am and this system worked well. The times were listed in 15 minute choices but these seem hard to adhere to especially when there are coach parties taking breakfast. The chaps who brought us our trays each morning were charming as were the variations on what we had ordered!
On our return from a day out, two nights running, after struggling through the wedding parties and guests we found that the key cards didn't work. My elderly mother then had to go back to Reception to have them reprogrammed. The first night this was done with no comment at all and on the second there was an apology and she was told that it must have been kept near a mobile phone. As an experienced traveller I had been careful to keep the cards aware from all electronic devices and suspect from the state of the key cards that they are probably a little on the elderly side themselves!
I was surprised to find most skirting boards were quite dusty as were the less visible surfaces - window sill and bars between chair legs. Again this is something that I begin to look for when I find my asthma is playing up. Other guests may not notice - unless they see where my finger ran over them to check!
There are only 3 disabled parking bays which are quickly taken up when the wedding guests cars fill the car park. The walk from the far car park is quite long as only I could drive the hire car I couldn't be dropped by the door.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay but as others have said it is a little tired.... as were the staff! Three weddings in three days must put a strain on all involved especially with coach parties also booked and perhaps the ordinary guests suffer a little as a result. We did point out these issues at Reception when we checked out and are content that they will be addressed.
We would happily stay here again and at least we learned that it is possible to butter toast with a spoon handle!
