i arrived at the hotel at 1am after my car broke down and 2 long diversions, I was exhausted and Barry, the wonderful man who was on duty, just checked me in with no fuss. He knew I'd had a terrible journey (I called earlier in the day) and parked my car for me so I could just get to...

Comfortable, friendly and reasonably priced hotel. Excellent breakfast included with extremely friendly staff making a noticeable difference to the enjoyment of the stay. Parking is free, but is one of the oddest car parks I've ever seen!

The hotel does offer a swimming pool which would normally be a positive but for some reason there is a strong chlorine smell through much of the hotel. Entering the room you are greeted by loose biscuits and a strange unsealed mini decanter of port, judging by the stained tide mark on the neck nobody is brave enough to drink...

Good evening reviewer, Thank you for your "Strange experience" review, which is in fact "Strange". The freshly baked home-made shortbread biscuits are presented in individual coockery biscuit 'tins' with a lid. The port is presented in a 50cl mini decanter with a fitted glass stopper . Both of these little 'Welcome' luxuries are very, very popular indeed. Our swimming pool...

I attended a renewal of vows at the hotel last night and everything was perfect. The staff were plentiful, friendly and efficient. The food was gorgeous and very generous portions. One little complaint from a few was that the beer in the upstairs room was a little flat? Overall a lovely venue for a special occasion.

I use this hotel for the gym and pool. I just use the swimming facilities mostly. When everything works this is a fine place to use, and I love using the Jacuzzi as it's lovely and warm. There are a few problems though. The pool itself is often very cold, and I've heard more than one person who we get...

Dear Leisure club member, As a valued customer we always appreciate observations on our facilities. Your review title 'Things often break down' is a fact, and frustratingly sometimes more than one thing at a time. We do however endeavour to repair or replace equipment as soon as is practicably possible. Recently the steam room took longer than expected waiting for...
