We were in a 3 single bed room (mum, sister and myself) and it was lovely/. Spacious, clean with everything you need. Great view of lake and golf course. Staff were delightful, bringing us a ice bucket full of ice for our own bottle of wine! We didn't have breakfast but did have lunch which was delicious. Very reasonable in...

The grounds to this hotel are stunning and give a great first impression upon arriving. My first impression dropped slightly when there was no welcome pack in my room and I had to ask reception how to call out for room service. I was given the code to dial but no welcome pack so not sure if these are in...

This place is really a golf club/ reception centre to call it a hotel is over stating it a bit. Be very carefully about what you think you are booking. It looks to all intents and purposes on the net that you are booking the main hotel building but on arrival you are informed you are in an out-building well...

We came here with a voucher of 2 Afternoon teas for the price of one. We were able to sit outside under a huge umbrella, which is definitely worth doing, as the views of the Lake are beautiful ( and although it was raining, we never got wet!) We were served by one very helpful and attentive waitress, but then...

Don't be fooled by the glamorous descriptions of the place or rooms. Classic lake view at £127 was well over priced. The 'discount rate' only £13 less - oh and they charge £3 without telling you for using a credit card! Huge room, very basic, the luxury bit is the 1 small bottle of fizzy water!Bathroom was the smallest I...

Stayed the night after a party, on the surface this hotel looks lovely and old with beautiful grounds, lake, Golf etc. However, once in the room after climbing three flights of stairs, with cases etc. No lift and everything very dated and basic for our taste, the place really needs updating with all the mod cons. No Fridge in room...

We stayed recently as guests at a wedding. We were in a lakeside room which is away from the main house. Unfortunately these rooms have wet rooms and the first room we were in also had a wet carpet and a musty smell. This was changed without fuss and we moved next door. The room was a nice size, bed...

We don't mind admitting that to us, this hotel is our spiritual 2nd home. It is where we married, hold large family lunch gatherings, pop up for a drink or bar snack and come when we need some proper relaxation. After a planned trip away went horribly wrong my (lovely) husband suggested we stay here again. That certainly helped improve...
