              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

            • Older travelers
              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.

            • Single
              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
