We’ve stayed at the hotel a couple of times and both times have been fantastic. The hotel and the grounds are beautiful, the staff are friendly and professional and the food and service are excellent. We’re looking forward to coming back again some time and would highly recommend it.

The only word that can explain our trip is complete chaos! The hotel itself is stunning, in beautiful grounds and we had a very nice room (we did get a suite.) But the whole process from start to finish was a shambles, firstly the swimming pool wasn’t in use, which was the whole reason we chose the hotel, as it was my mums birthday. They gave us 1 limited drink voucher for the inconvenience We then had a table booked for dinner at 7.30 and waited 45mins before we could order a drink, we had two kids with us and by this time it was way past their bedtimes. After ordering the drinks/food we received drinks 1hr later. At 8.40 still no food my kids were crying and asking for their bed, so my husband took the kids to bed. I asked if could cancel the kids food and order them some chips instead so it would be quicker, each time I tried to speak to the waitress, she walked off before I finished taking, and I had to call her back 3 times before she would listen. (She was extremely rude) Finally chips arrive at 9pm and then food shortly after. I asked for sauce for the kids and they managed to get it out onto the side and walk off and leave it there so I helped myself to it. I then had to take the food and drink up to the room for them, and then again for my husbands tea!! They did give us money off and some free pudding to apologise, but it ruined my mums birthday meal and she was absolutely gutted. That night I thought, at least I can get to bed and have a nice rest in the lovely large bed… but no.. of course not! They had a Christmas party and down under our window is what I can only presume was the smoking area. It was soooo loud, adults shouting laughing and swearing above mine and my kids windows. At 11.30 I called down to reception as I had enough. And they said they would investigate, nothing was done. I called at 12 no answer, at 12.30 no answer, so I had to get dressed and go downstairs and find a member of staff to help. By 1.15am a man who worked there closed the area off and I could finally sleep, until they managed to all get out there again at 2am!!! At 2.20 It sounded like they were told off and pulled back in. The noise continued inside with the drunk party stumbling past the doors till around 3.30. And I finally fell asleep at 4am. Breakfast was again a shambles, loads of staff doing nothing and others running around like they are on fire. 3 people it took to work out our room number and booking. Yet nobody cleaning the tables… Again on leaving, check in, overnight, and during the day, there was no receptionist, so we had to wait yet again. The whole stay was the worst night away I’ve ever had, and considering the beautiful location, it’s a real shame. Certainly won’t ever stay or recommend this hotel to anyone, keep clear!!
