Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    The courtesy of the staff, the internet access and the comfort of the rooms.

  • Family with children

    The pool was very good, not to crowded and open to adults only at some times so quiet at times

    Chlorine in whirlpool, made our eyes run after about 30 seconds, really strong and unusable from our perspective

  • Group of friends

    very friendly staff, good rooms with views over the exellent golf course, lovely filling breakfast.

  • Older travelers

    the staff, the rooms were pleasant, tea and coffee good, and the prices were reasonable

    you have to check in at the pay desk in the over stocked sports shop at the entrance to the sports centre

  • Single

    Nice comfortable room & bed, quiet. Friendly staff.

    Hotel reception is teamed with the leisure reception so it doesn't seem like a hotel. Accommodation is in a separate building from the reception, swimming pool & restaurant. Restaurant itself is more like a café belonging to a gym and the food is ok but nothing special.

  • Single

    I liked the surroundings of the hotel. I also liked the staff, they were friendly and always on hand to help. I like the design of the hotel rooms. I wanted to go away to a countryside, for relaxation and quiteness. That was excatly what I got. This time I did not drive up there, but next time I definalty will because to get anywhere in the area you have to drive and there are beautiful villiages to pop into close by.

  • Family with children

    This was all about the location for us as we were visiting family who live nearby, the hotel was clean and staff friendly. We were very impressed with the swimming pool/spa area!

  • Older travelers

    we liked the relaxed style of the hotel,it is nice and informal.the meal that we had in the pulse bar was lovely and the inclusive breakfast was exellent.the swimming pool and leisure facilities are all included in the price.

  • Couple

    Very good views and venue. Great value for money.

    No cash point to draw out money and didn't do cash back at the bar. They can take card payments tho.

  • Older travelers

    The use of the facilities and good vegetarian breakfast

  • Single

    3rd Time I have stayed, very good value for money, I thought the food choice was more varied and better on the specials menu this time.Staff are very friendly and efficient. Minor gripe the bathroom extractor fan only worked intermittently.

  • Single

    Quiet, good value for money, convenient

    Television did not have bbc1 or bbc2. No discount was offered for incomplete tv channels

  • Family with children

    Sofas in the vestibule

    Receptionist did not give enough information about where the pool and restaurant were, also restaurant staff need much more training....I Did not get my breakfast though I ordered it and was charged...however I was refunded

  • Single

    Have stayed here a few times, excellent stay as always, great location as part of golf club, if a little remote. Lovely rooms and great to use the swimming pool. Nice to see a new menu in the bar, some good meals

  • Group of friends

    Quality rooms great golf course and gym

    More choice on food menu
