    Perfect place to stay for couples or anyone looking for a posh but relaxing break. Bedrooms were extremely clean along with the rest of the hotel. Would definitely come back and would definitely recommend to a friend.

    It is old fashioned and dated, but that is its charm. Rooms are excellent, well fitted out, well decorated and clean. The staff are very attentive. The leisure centre is superb. If you have time try the afternoon tea, it is superb.

    Lots of visitors are saying the same. Ridiculous parking 'fines' for using the hotel and not being made aware of this by members of staff. Recent family wedding netted over £600 in fines from one side of the family as arrived in dark and rain so didn't see signs - management did not warn them before the event or during it. Also, Sunday's charity event was seriously low on visitors and many we asked said they weren't paying to go there! You need to sort out parking management.

    Big signs at reception and the staff clarified and sorted that our car was registered as a hotel guest vehicle. No problems

    I have booked this hotel and finding it hard to find any information about treatments in the spa. Can you book on the day? How is availability for booking on the day? And are the sauna n spa mixed or separate? Thankyou
