                    10.0

                    A very relaxed hotel where the guests come first. We will revisit in the future.

                  • Family with children
                    8.2

                    It was local to us, cheaper alternative evening meal next door

                    Family room wasn't very big. Wasn't enough room to move around and was a little pokey.

                  • Older travelers
                    8.8

                    Friendly helpful staff. Nice rooms, although beginning to look a little tired. Comfortable bed. Nice fluffy towels.

                  • Couple
                    7.4

                    Hotel staff were curteous and helpful

                    Room service menu is pretty poor after 9pm, just soup and sandwhiches, though they were quite tasty.

                  • Family with children
                    7.4

                    Good range of facilities.

                    Lack of variety on dinner menu and brakfast service a biot slow

                    4.6

                    The trip home

                    The hairs in the bath, the inability of the receptionist to listen...

                  • Family with children
                    9.6

                    Great hotel good location with excellent spa facilities, the pub adjoining the hotel offered good food at reasonable prices in a relaxed atmosphere

                    Didn't eat in the hotel as thought prices for a family of four were a little expensive therefore would suggest an inclusive rate for breakfast for this type of stay.

                  • Older travelers
                    6.6

                    Good service and facilities with the higher end rooms being extremely comfortable. Staff always very helpful.

                    While it may be marketed as a luxury facility it is very expensive. Nearly £8 for tea for two which came in a pot large enough for a builders yard tea break with cookies that were not requested or required.

                  • Older travelers
                    6.6

                    comfortable hotel helpful staff on site facilities.

                    busy other than hotel activities, wedding fayre etc.

                    8.8

                    Large comfortable suite, good food, use of Spa pool, parking

                  • Older travelers
                    6.6

                    Pleasant and comfortable reception and bar area. Spa looked attractive but we didnot have time to try. Bar staff were friendly but not 100% au fait with menu.

                    The bedrooms and bathrooms just beginning to look a little tired, especially bathrooms.

                  • Older travelers
                    8.8

                    The staff were polite and helpful.Breakfast very good

                    No real complaints...but staff nearly apologised too much for short waits in service

                  • Group of friends
                    9.6

                    A very friendly hotel, all staff made us feel very welcome

                    Breakfast was a bit overpriced

                  • Couple
                    6.2

                    Staff extremely pleasant and helpful - really good. Rooms pretty good (a bit small for two). Food in restaurant, bar, and adjacent pub all excellent.

                    Seems the hotel cannot cope with occupancy peaks. We arrived on a Bank Holiday weekend with several weddings under way - there was no-one to help with baggage from the car, ten minutes to check-in, and a further ten minute wait for help with baggage to the room. The wireless internet is poor at best, but for 95% of our time there it was so slow as to be almost unusable. Although there is a wired internet socket in the room, Reception were unable to provide a cable to connect to it. Spa facilities also seem to suffer when the hotel is full - the swimming pool, although large, was regularly very full resulting in almost no room to swim properly. I can imagine all these issues may be better when the hotel is less full.

                  • Older travelers
                    9.4

                    Relaxing nature of the hotel although there was a wedding my husband and I were not aware
