Lovely building beautifully decorated for Christmas. Well-equipped spa was a bonus although requires some updating. Room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Staff weren't particularly attentive and seemed unhappy. Breakfast was just 'ok'. I don't think residents should have to pay for on-site parking. Overall, a lovely stay though.

Interior of rooms starting to look worn and dated, some of the spa facilities were out of order. When going down for breakfast, long wait to be seated as only one member of staff seeing people to tables

Hotel is lovely, looking a bit dated/tired. Rooms are not cleaned very well, found old reciepts from 3 weeks ago in the wardrobe, cheese and biscuits still in the fridge from the person before, very dusty and cobwebs from wall to curtains. Old bits of paper etc under the beds. Apart from that the hotel is really nice, the swimming pool and spa area are lovely.

The room was a good size and clean but apart from that our weekend away was not a good experience. Arrived to be told there was only one night booked but then they found the booking and we were told we would have to move rooms after the first night, but we refused. We had dinner in the hotel the first night in there award winning restaurant and it was awful. We did not get the meals we ordered and mine was a combination of two meals which were on the menu, which is not what I ordered. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant and the service was terrible, we had to ask for menus at the beginning and between courses and they were reluctant to clear our plates. Don't accept water when they offer it as they will charge you £6 for a large bottle. The breakfast the next morning was again awful,, Anaemic sausages and bacon and dried scrambled egg. We ordered the porridge which was lovely and some poached eggs. My eggs were not cooked enough and the white was snotty, I didn't want them replaced as it put me off. My husbands eggs were cold, he sent them back and the replacements were cold as well. We spoke to a manager and it seems the hotel was full and did not have enough staff. The Christmas markets had just started and they know the date they start every year so why was to not in the planning for staff recruitment and if they were not able to attract staff maybe they need to look at the salary and benefits they are offering. Overall not great.
