This is a wonderful "resort"...not actually a hotel...much better. The buildings are old England with steam heat and the walls are thin. But, what a wonderful stay we had. The buildings are very pretty, there is a health club named "Stables"...and the logo is the bust of a horse...naturally I thought this was an actual stable and maybe we could rid horses...LOL...was I ever surprised.
The staff was wonderful...the restaurant breakfast was "perfect"....Sunday was the buffet and what a selection. Monday was menu, but seemed to have everything that was on the buffet. The sausage was great...the bacon, well bacon in the UK is different than in the USA...these were like little ham's and WOW they were tasty. Poached eggs on toast were flawless.
We would welcome the opportunity to stay here again....I am certain you will also.
We had our wedding reception here almost 10 years ago. Now admittedly that's a while back, but they did such a great job I thought it was worth letting the world know! When we booked the venue (8 months in advance) it hadn't actually been built, so it was a bit of a gamble: but we needn't have worried. The staff were very friendly and the venue itself was, of course, in immaculate condition! There was plenty of space which was useful as we had lots of kids around and the children's entertainer we hired was able to do his entertaining in a separate room. The food was excellent too, which was good as one or two of the guests had quite high standards in that department. Unfortunately I can't say I'd use the place again myself simply because I don't intend to get married again! -- but I'd certainly recommend it for anyone else based on our experience 10 years ago.
I came here for a wedding- room was good, but drinks extortionate and some staff were less helpful than id hoped, given the reputation and price paid.
