A beautiful stately hotel, but a bit tired.
Posted Mar 20, 2017
This is a majestic property in a good location not far from the M1. It has all the facilities but requires some major investment to bring it up to a high standard. The public areas are pleasant and the pool is nice enough - there is a little note to say that there is a new jacuzzi on order. Overall the hotel is adequate as it is and it was very busy when we stayed. The food is fairly good, staff are very friendly and welcoming. The room was fine for us, a family room with a double bed, a single and a put up bed and it was spacious. There was a tv in each room, tea, hot chocolate and biscuits too. The bathroom is very tired, although I believe it has been slightly updated, however it needs completely ripping out and redoing! Days of in consistent water temperature and a dangerously boiling hot tap ("only use the cold one"!!!) are no longer acceptable.
