    Location and staff

    Other than main areas, property lacked personal attention and looked run down. Bar was very cold and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time.

    Fabulous

    The spa was excellent, the manageress was very efficient , friendly and helpfull. The superior room was excellent but let down by the lack of anywhere to hang clothes.

    We enjoyed the hotel but we had in fact booked for twol nights and the night before we stayed I was informed that due to some problem a room would not be available, we were offered a rooom and another hotel many miles away but this was of no use to us. I was told that they would offer us one of their superior rooms for the Saturday night and offered a bottle of wine to compensate, I suggested champagne and the girl said ok. On arrival at the hotel we found the receptionist to be not particularly friendly and not very welcoming. In the room we found a bottle of cava instead of champagne, I spoke to the manageress about this and she changed it for us, she in fact was very pleasant and helpfull unlike the fairly surly receptionist.

    Rooms were a good size, staff were very friendly and helpful. Good facilities and location. Food was also good.

    Rooms maybe needed a little redecoration but according to the staff the hotel had just changed management so this will be fixed in the near future.

    Hotel was dated, Room decor was terrible. Not told that wifi connection was not available throughout. Bar was gloomy and poorly staffed. Food presentation and quality was very poor, menu was poor. Staff were sullen and looked like they didn't want to be there. Poor service for breakfast in the morning.

    Good

    Service great , country location, food was good, I didn't use the pool/spa facilities.

    Room wasn't up to expectations for a £100+ cost, its the first time I've ever asked for a different room... rooms were advertised as having satellite TV, they didn't, not even Freeview channels 9 they had Film 4 I think plus basic) the tv was deeper than it was long, a very old model... furniture was dated (fine) but could have done with a layer of varnish, toilet didn't flush properly...I had to lift the lid and reset it myself, bathroom window was full of spiders webs.

    It was comfartable

    When I arrived there had been a mix up with the cost of my room which caused a lot of tension. One female member of staff in particular, although did not directly say, was basically calling me a liar. There were other guests checking in, picking up keys etc I found the attitude of some of the satff far from friendly and all in all check in was an emabarssing experience.

    The staff were friendly & helpful

    My room was not one of those updated... The decor & thus ambience was tired. Not the type of room I expected for the price paid.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Good service, good food, friendly staff and beautiful outdoors, and classic interior that matches the 'castle'. Quiet and calming atmosphere. Love the music playing in reseption-area.

    The beds are too hard!!! No roomservice/ tidying or fresh towels saturday. Hopeless sink with seperate hot and cold water. Poor 'flush' in toilets.

    Good

    Purpose of the weekend stay was to attend a wedding which was being held there so it was ideal to be based at the hotel

    Staff experience and rapport was variable and although it is appreciated many hotels employ part time weekend staff it felt that at times training in dealing with customers was lacking. Having requested specific items from the breakfast menu on our first morning to be told they would go to the shops to get them (cereals and muffins) I had to supply my own the next day as this had not been done and they could not provide skimmed milk, For a four star hotel many rooms and decoration seemed slightly tired (split sofas, dirty carpets, chipped paintwork etc) and given this was the case bar prices etc did not reflect this.
