Fair 4.0
Not very clean, had to move room twice before we got a clean room. On the third room we had to ask for the bathroom to be recleaned. Breakfast wear was also not cleaned properly. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel needs to be decorated. Nice pool and spa. Good location

I was very disappointed by the hotel. The girl at reception was very pleasant and efficient but the standards in this hotel very very poor. The room was shabby and very basic. Thankfully there was wifi as my children could watch netflix as all the tv had to offer was bbc stations. The corridors smelt musty and sad to see a fire escape with furniture stored in the stairwell. There were other reasons as to why i would not return but I have emailed the hotel with my complant and await their response.

Our double bed... springs gone in double bed room 3027. Wife had to stay in single bed with one of the children. Also when we went to go to bed the key room wouldn’t work..., we had to wait 55 minutes at 23:30 because night porter couldn’t fix it. Have stayed before but rooms weren’t to standard and breakfast wear was filthy

Wont be going back!
Everything was fine into the early hours of the morning. Gang of lads in bedroom opposite decided to carry on their party in the hallway. I put up with it for a while then had to tell them to be quiet. Opened my door to find the lads moving a bed from one room to the next at 3.45am! They carried on partying until well after 6am. Got no sleep, very disappointing as we were only staying the 1 night!

Swimming pool seperate from hotel not ideal in winter as cold and wet heads. Food in house terrible better foods in the woods part. Food and drink expensive and not great choice. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beds very comfy. Great loxation for families but cost if eating makes a stay expensive.

Well it got off to a bad start due to a mix-up between the understanding of the booking and the type of room. However managed to solve the issue when I spoke to them. Kamal the hotel front desk manager did all he could also to solve the issue. Unfortunately the first room had zero Wifi availability which really hampered my remote business dealings. The next day we changed rooms and wifi was then okay. Breakfast was good plenty to choose from and staff were very helpful. All in all a comfortable stay

Great hotel but need to upgrade mattresses!
Great hotel, lovely staff, food & entertainment for families. Only problem was that in our family room the double mattress was so uncomfortable! We stayed in room 3027 .There was a hole on one side which meant we both ended up on the one side of the bed no matter what way we slept! My husbands back has been really achy & painful since! It was a pity because otherwise its a fabulous hotel which id highly recommend to our friends 😊
