Midweek stint

By

Great service everyone very polite and helpful. We stayed in the village which is away from the main building, was very peaceful but meant after the sauna/steam room we had to go out in the cold before entering our nice warm/cosy room.
The dinner (a la carte) was nice, so too the buffet breakfast.
All in all great experience, we'll definitely go back again and would recommend.

Went for a romantic getaway on valentines night

By

Hotel, grounds and rooms were lovely. The thing that let this hotel down was the food which totally ruined our romantic evening. We chose to upgrade our meal from buffet to al a cart. The ambience was mice and we were greeted straight away, we got our starters promptly and our drinks. Then it all changed, I had ordered a steak medium to well done, but it was served all bloody. I tried to get the attention of the waitress to no avail, we were not given any more drinks that we had ordered and no one came to us for 30 mins. I had to eat the potatoes because I was starving, my husband had a burger which was so salty that he too couldn't eat it. When the waitress finally came I showed her the steak and she took it to the kitchen. They offered us some wine as compensation. I thought that I would also be offered another steak but this wasn't to be. We wasn't even offered a desert. Considering we had paid up front we didn't get a meal and we were even charged the extra for the upgrade. Totally ruined our romantic getaway. We also had bad experience with food in the bar, had ordered a baguette and it was so chewy we couldn't swallow it, this was replaced, which was the edible. On a plus the breakfast was lovely. I would recommend this hotel for comfort and style but not for the food.
