Arrived for a two day break on Sunday. First contact was very positive. Waited for our room, not long, had a coffee. Room was overlooking the golf course, it was lovely. Dinner was first class as was breakfast. The staff were some of the best I have come across. Very friendly and attentive. Would definitely return to this relaxing hotel.

Visited during half term holidays, reception were very welcoming and efficient, we had a spacious family room with stunning views of the golf course and hills. Booked under the 2 night DBB deal, ate in Renwicks restaurant both nights, food was superb and service wonderful. The children's menu was varied and the children's 'large' plates were a generous portion size....

Booked DBB for my wife and myself through Myhotel.com and chose executive room for small additional payment. Was not aware that we had chosen school mid term holiday time. But, although the hotel was very busy, the staff dealt admirably with the rush. From our first contact with Clare at reception until our next day checkout, our stay was perfect....

What is wrong with this hotel?? Where do I start... • Arrived and people are kicking about in reception with bath robes after a spa • Facilities way too small for the amount of people, they are putting tables more or less in reception to extend the dining room as it's far to small. • Pool area, changing room doors...

The Hotel is set in Beautiful surroundings. The staff were friendly. The Food was generally Ok, but serving food to the Bar areas was very slow. The Hotel has at least 3 Bars but only 1 was open regularly. therefore had to use staff to take orders and Do Not drink the Draft Beer. It was the worst Lager visually...

Arrived on Thursday at 2:00 but our room was not available until 4:30, which was a bit on the late side. Couldn't leave our room open for charging since we had no credit card with us - it was explained that Company policy stopped them using the debit card we offered. Couldn't give us dinner until 9:45 which is too...
