Stayed here a couple of nights ago while up on business. The chalet style en suite bedroom was very spacious and better than staying in your typical Hotel room with noisy corridors and banging doors, and they're all on ground floor, (they even have an Iron and Ironing board which is a must for me). The bath towels are proper...

Excellent venue for the wedding. It was very well organised for the accommodation, day of wedding, wedding service and evening. Breakfast only until 9am so missed second morning, which was a shame as it was lovely the first morning with cereal and table service for cooked breakfast, coffee/tea and toast. Staff were amazing, especially as we noticed they do everything...
