2/10 Poor

Have enjoyed a number of previous stays, but now ! The staff/management seem to have no training and lack any customer service, rude and unhelpful, the hotel is neglected and run down. The food is extremely over priced and portions have shrunk to a pitifully size, not worth the extra approx £80 cost(food only) if you like vegetables with your meal, these need to be ordered as side dishes.The Leasure/spa facilities broken/out of order again, no locker's and close at 17.00, to early to be enjoyed on arrival. Dangerous and unsafe access from car park to hotel reception, no outside lighting, completely dark on winters evening. Shame the hotel has lost all its previous charm. 😥

Back in time
Knoll House is like going back in time, it’s a little tired but it has so much charm. They are super dog friendly but it doesn’t smell ‘doggy’. They are trying to get planning permission to have a complete overhaul and to be honest I think it will lose its unique charm. The views are breathtaking, the staff are lovely and very helpful. The housekeeping needs work. Overall we want to go back soon as it was so relaxing
