Fantastic hotel in a quite location. We booked a standard room but was upgraded to a bigger room which was lovely lovely shower. Breakfast was good
Food poor, my starter garlic bread came as we were finishing our main meal. The volume of peas on my plate was more than the rest of the meal. No Jacuzzi,
The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The bar food was expensive and the quality did not match the prices. Homemade beefburger did not appear or taste like one.
The hotel has beautiful grounds and a relaxed atmosphere. Staff very friendly and room very comfortable and well decorated. Would definately recommend to friends and family,
Good leaisure facilities. Pleasant and helpfull staff
Room was very warm, hard to get comfortable temp.
Extremely friendly, helpful staff who should be commended on their attitude to guests. Pleasant room with beautiful views. Very good swimming.
Quality of first courses for evening meals, though all other food was very good.
The cleanliness, friendly and efficient service and the overall very peaceful relaxing ambience. The breakfast is great as it suits all age groups offering both deliciously healthy and traditional hearty choices something for everyone and the hotel offers ia great introduction to friendly but formal, civilised dining for well behaved good mannered children! The leisure centre is so welcome after an energetic walk and is a real plus but we think a few peaceful adults only slots might be welcome during busy school holiday times?- ttiming if these were offered would be important !
The comfortable and relaxed atmosphere present throughout the hotel.
Staff were very pleasant and the facilities were good. Also the hotel was situated in a good area
For the price the food was very average.
We booked a double room, but had a nice suprise when we arrived as we had been upgraded to a family room, which was like a small apartment with large bedroom and bathroom and a sitting room.The views were lovely over the lake and hills . A lovely place to getaway from it all .
friendliness of staff, good food, good facilities for wet weather!
Great location if you like peace and quiet; our room had lovely views
Everyone was very friendly and helpful.The food was also very good and the room also very nice so it is hard to choose one thing.
Helpful & Friendly staff
Menu limited in variety offered for dinner
I enjoyed the ambience; the varied sitting areas and the friendly, helpful (but not intrusive) staff. We prefer off-season periods as they are quieter and this enhanced our enjoyment during our stay.
