      Group review with 250 people staying

      In general: This was an organised weekend for an Association with 250 guests, a prominent guest of honour, black tie dinner. Location and surroundings: Location ok. Golf course fairways good greens and bunkers poor. Service: Service was poor throughout with employees not able to speak English properly. Service at the dinner was below average to very poor for a gala type dinner. Dining: Food at the main building was fine, but the dinner on the Saturday night gala dinner was basic. The main course was advertised as beef and ale pie, it was but, like a basic pucker pie you buy in Tesco with a spoon full of mask and carrots. The coffee served to the guest of honour was presented to him in a paper cup! Sports and leisure: Golf ok as above, not value for money. Room: Very tired in the mansion house. Shower over bath was loose and sprayed everywhere. Only one towel resented when they were changed. Shower gel and shampoo not replenished until asked for. Useful tips: Don't bother, this was very poor for a supposed 4 star hotel. Not good at all, they need to up Thier game by 200%. Unfortunately I did not take any photos of the hotel, food or golf course. Wine price for 175mm glass was £5.50 first day, £7.50 next day, then £8 for the dinner. How does that work? The bar ran out of lager the first day and beer the second night. Not impressed.

      location, the main house,

      We really wanted to stay in the main house so booked it, was given a ref for the main house but when turned up wa told no.

      Very helpful reception staff, a problem arose with the room bookings but was quickly and amicably resolved

      Executive block can be rather noisy when full

    • Older travelers
      5.0

      Absolutely nothing! Not suitable for independent travellers

      Business hotel . lots of conferences going on. Foyer was called "the street" and was like an airport departure lounge.

      Excellent value for money and close proximity to the venue of a family wedding.

    • Family with children

      The swimming pool and gym. It was great to be able to get tea and coffee at all times.

      There was not a lot of vegetarian options in the restaurants. The morning scrambled eggs were very rubbery.

      Location was ideal for us. Due to family in the area.

      One of your hotel staff who brought us our room service was very inappropriate in the way he put his foot in the door and and entered our room without being invited, while I was placing the tray on the side and collecting payment for him. My partner was extreamly distressed as she was not decently dressed. He made us both very uncomfortable as he violated our privacy...........

    • Family with children

      Very picturesque setting.

      We were attending a wedding reception and where our room was located was where all the business meeting/conferences were taking place. It would of been nice to of had our room where the rest of the wedding party were staying (mansion house).It felt very business orientated in the main reception area and the reception staff seemed more interested in the business people than with us when checking in.

      large green setting to included the golf course. tranquil

      noisy corridor as was on the ground floor. The coving in the bathroom fell down just as i got out of the shower - a near miss

      An attractive building in a pleasant location.

      My Tom Tom directed me via very narrow lanes to the back entrance.

      The attitude of reception staff was terrible.

      3.8

      The outside area was nice to walk around

      Dinner in the restaurant was awful it was a buffet so food was dry and lukewarm and cost a lot for what is was.Room was small and dingy, have stayed in better travelodges

    • Single

      Surroundings, location very beautiful. Good selection of TV channels

      rather old interior, couldn't use kettle as dirty and green stuff growing in there... too many people for my comfort, didn't feel suitable for business stay, more like a camp feeling. Dinner order was missed, I then wanted to cancel - the receptionist was very friendly and apologized - the kitchen delivered 1 1/2hrs. later with the excuse that they were busy.... no pen and pad in the room (I forgot my pen at work and really missed it)

    • Older travelers
      3.2

      Very unhappy with the first room we were given. After complaining we were however given a much better room. I think that you get the impression you are staying in the old part of the hotel which is not the case at all. Not a very good experience and we will not be returning.
