The building is amazing however the spa is a very tired looking and the sash windows in our room let in a draft as they didn’t lock. I was shocked to find that on top of the room rate we then had to pay £15 a night to park the car. Not best pleased about that as ebookers did not point this out to us. Also on the website I used the filters to “breakfast included” but when we got there it wasn’t included. The price for this was £21.50 per person which I think is a totally outrageous price. We had a perfectly good breakfast at Bills in town costing £24 for two of us. Overall wouldn’t book through ebookers again or stay at this hotel.

The spa and pool area was excellent, one off the best I have been to at a hotel. Staff on reception and room service were excellent but the restaurant staff were very slow and kept forgetting things. Me and a number of other tables had to ask multiple times for milk with our tea at breakfast and eventually I had to get it myself from the cereal counter. The hot breakfast buffet was quite limited and the scrambled eggs were not nice. The eggs royale that I ordered off them menu however was lovely.

Food st dinner excellent, breakfast disappointing. Parking £15 for an overnight stay on the hotel grounds should be included in hotel price. Room with garden view was beautiful, clean very spacious.

Been here previously and I feel the standards have dropped. On arrival, reception were very helpful and arranged an extra bed for my nephew. The pool was cold, although we were made aware about this. When going to bed, we were woken by security loudly knocking our door, which woke my nephew up. We waited 20min to be seated for breakfast, another 20 to get tea and coffee. After 45min of waiting for our breakfast we asked a waitress to check how long it was going to be, she said she would go and check, she then avoided us and served the other side of the room. Food was nice when it eventually came. On checking out we said about the noise from the room next door and waking nephew up, reception responded that they were aware of it. Did not apologise and brushed it off. Would not be rushing back.
