Negative Reviews

Food is not a highlight

Included with each stay is a full English breakfast, and guests have the option of staying in and buying dinner at the hotel restaurant However, many have commented on varying issues as to the food quality and generally lacklustre offerings.

Walls don’t keep out noise from others

While guests will find the five acres the hotel sits on to be a quiet haven, the same doesn't always apply for inside the hotel Noise travels frequently through the walls and during events this can be a particular nuisance.

Glass en suite doors don’t provide much privacy

Doors on the guestroom bathrooms are made of glass, which isn't even frosted according to reviews This causes a lack of privacy when using the facilities and makes some guests who are travelling with others uncomfortable.
