Enjoyable but down to company and staff. Food bland over priced, yet eclipsed entirely buy the price and poor choices of drinks. Almost £30 for what I think was Asti. No prosecco let alone champagne and the house wine was reminiscent of vinegar. Such a poor choice for a spa hotel, can honestly say I've never known such disparity between... More

This hotel is very tired and so were the staff. The evening meal was very good, beds were comfy but room cold and there were no tea or coffee facilities in room. The spa area is in desperate need of a revamp and some of the spa staff were quite rude and seemed bored. Most amateurish manicure I've ever paid... More

My Son booked his wedding at Linden Hall and went to a tasting before picking his menu and was very complimentary about the food. My suspicions were alerted almost instantly when we were served canapés that smelt off. The starter was the only thing that was remotely edible, gammon terrine. The main course lamb was meant to be sliced but... More

I have being using the hotel for a few years now. I have to say that the hotel staff are always friendly and make my short stays very comfortable. I often check in late in the evening and this is never a problem.
