Unfortunately, we weren't told a wedding was taking place and had paid extra for a better room. Room 29 was in the middle of the wedding...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, there has been a problem with the Groupon Promotion and we are currently investigating into this with Groupon - we can only apologies for the miscommunication to what was included in the deal.

This hotel needs a lottery win to refurbish this hotel. The receptionist doubles no trebles up as receptionist , waitress, and bar maid. We booked the hotel for our wedding anniversary but could have cried when we went into the room. The wallpaper was coming off the walls and the furniture was out of the ark. Shame as grounds were...

Lovely clean room over looking the farm animals, which the kids loved. Yummy full English breakfast with all you can eat toast & cereal. Helpful staff. The restaurant was not open for dinner but was recommended somewhere to go by a staff member, which was amazing. Beautiful grounds to the hotel.

My husband booked this weekend to surprise me for my birthday. He was so upset as the place was awful. It was like walking back in time to the 1970's. Everything that everyone has said about the place is true. Too hot in the room, leaking taps, awful smell, disgusting carpet in the bathroom. Went to have a drink in...

Stayed there in 2012 and couldn't fault it. Stayed one week ago and was amazed at the change. My room, although clean, was shabby and in need of redecoration. The en-suite bathroom door had a broken handle and would not shut. Inside, the sink was cracked and the bath wall had cracked tiles. There was no anti-slip mat in the...
