Very helpful receptionist arranged for us to book in a couple of hours before the official time. Much appreciated as we were attending a lunch party at the hotel. Great views from hotel of the golf course and countryside. Room predictable, but absolutely fine. Lunch was superb but continental buffet breakfast was disappointing (for example, only 2 bowls of fresh fruit, no spoons to serve it with, they forgot to put out the napkins, we weren't asked whether we wanted white or brown toast). Sitting by the log fire in the reception lounge area, we were entertained by all the comings and goings of those attending the parties and functions at the hotel. Not the place to sit for a quiet evening! At 9.20 p.m. we wanted to order food but were told it was too late so we went to bed hungry.
