Clean and warm, however, the bed we had was very low to the floor, made it hard getting in and out off.Carpets could do with a good clean. Overall an enjoyable experience meeting new and old friends. Food good, entertainment good.

Thank you for your review . We are already in contact with Uk Breakways regarding these comedy breaks,as the hotel is given a programme by the Only Fool and Horses team, who are not connected to the hotel, with a breakdown of times they ask us to adhere to for their sketches,These times are set by them,.not the hotel, and we too are finding it is causing issues with timings, and the meal itself is taking a considerable time to serve and the food in the kitchen is having to wait to go out to be served, therefore we are getting complaints from guests re the service times.We are in talks with UK Breakways regarding this issue, as its its obviously not working with the timings we are being set .These weekends are very popular, so we hope we can rectify the situation. I can only apologise about the Sunday morning issues, we had a problem with one of our main hot plates which was out of our control, hence why we had to cook everything to order ,With a buffet service Breakfast it is so much easier for guests and staff, so this is why things were slow on the restaurant.Again we can only apolgise for this . We hope to see you again at The Cavendish as this is not how we like our guests to leave after staying with us.

Very welcoming atmosphere with friendly staff.Room was clean and the daily maid service carried out well. Poor television reception though.Restaurant pleasant enough, but just a little cramped. However, food was good and of generous portions.Will certainly use this hotel again.

have they got a top of the range room , and do they do a full english , and do they serve cider.... hope to see you in july
Some rooms are better than others,I think you should ask when booking 're the type of room you require.they did serve cider in the bar.breakfast is self service you eat as much as you wish to full English etc...Hope this helps.out door pool is heated but only open certain times of year,indoor lovely and warm.re parking it's at the rear and you enter via the rear strait into reception..evening entertainment good we didn't play bingo.
