Disappointing
When we arrived at the hotel it looked great - the buildings are located in beautiful wooded grounds with plenty of parking. From then on it went downhill. The room was spacious, but was showing signs of wear although reasonably clean. We had an evening meal in the restaurant. It was quite a long wait to order drinks and food, so we ordered both at the same time. Mistake! Appetizers were finished before the drinks arrived, and although the menu looked interesting the food when it came was nothing special. It was then a long wait for desserts - eventually we grew tired of sitting looking at empty glasses so gave-up and found someone for the bill

Still smoking at front doors! Come on management!
The hotel still permits smoking immediately outside the front reception doors which is most unfortunate; it's disgusting to inhale second hand smoke on a beautiful sunny morning when all you want is a deep breath of fresh air! Otherwise hotel is good as ever and I would recommend.

Good6.0
There are a number of basic things wrong. There was no heating in the room but the hotel povided an electric radiator and the shower screen was mouldy. At dinner the first thing you saw was a table scattered with me menus and cutlery. We waited an hour for dinner with no apology. When it did arrive the steak was excellent. At breakfast there were no plates and no teaspoons. All small things but indicitive of hotel management issues. On the plus side the staff were polite and friendly.

Overall stay was OK - Room good however breakfast was an unmitigated disaster ! Often quoted is the line ‘ you can guarantee there’ll be an issue with Kitchen if you can’t get them to even fry an egg properly ! ‘ Why have a help yourself toaster when it either hardly toasts bread or incinerates it on second run through ? Sister Hotel - Hill Valley Golf & Country Club @ Whitchurch is a better choice i m o
