Positive Reviews

The Extra Mile

Staff are very helpful on arrival: when guests arrived late they served dinner even though the restaurant was about close. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. All the staff are friendly and helpful at reception, the bar and the restaurant.

Do Not Forget Your Swimwear

Free use of the swimming pool was much appreciated, and the spa is excellent Free parking is a big bonus as was late check out.

Sausages to Die For

They are recommended by a guest: “Best that I've ever had in a hotel ”. Free coffee on departure was also well received, and provision of soya milk was not a problem.

Negative Reviews

Booking and Check In Failures

Guests who booked into the hotel six weeks previously, and received confirmation, was very unhappy to be told at 9 00pm that there was not a room available as they had overbooked. Guests who rang on the day prior to their visit to request early check-in had some difficulty in persuading a member of staff on the telephone to arrange it. The coffee was not to Guests's taste and the restaurant area was unappealing.

Breakfast Rush

The breakfast buffet was cleared by 08 30am and there was no breakfast menu available, giving the visitor the impression that this is “Just a conference venue".

Can't Wait That Long?

A visitor found that the lavatory fan in their bathroom was not working. Staff replied that this would be rectified in the refurbishment in 2015. However when asked for an air freshener canister, they said there was none available. To pay for Wi-Fi these days was felt to be unacceptable Guests who returned after a previous stay feels standards have slipped, and found -under the bed- a “you know it's been cleaned” hotel card: a classic case of self contradiction!
