            • Group of friends
              5.0

              It's location and facilities also good décor.

              When my booking was lost, the lack of pro-activity of the staff to find me two alternative rooms was very very disappointing even though I showed them my booking confirmation.

            • Couple
              6.2

              I liked the spa, I thought the massage I had was lovely. Breakfast was nice as well.

              I was shocked to see people older than me, 35+ guzzling beer and downing champagne in the public pool area, they took up the whole space leaving no room for me and my boyfriend to relax. For an executive room I would have expected a little bit of food/drink other than water in the fridge. The reception staff were friendly but one lady was quite abrupt when I had a few questions to ask. The holes on the golf course were very poorly signposted so everyone kept playing the wrong holes! Plus was hugely congested on the saturday. I won't be returning.

            • Couple
              5.0

              Very little

              The staff were of little assistance. You would expect taht if teh checking out time is 12 o'clock then the (suite - on 3 of them) rooms should be ready by 2pm! The receptionist was particularily unhelpful, we had a meeting at 3pm and managed to get into the suite at 2.45pm. The advise would make checking out at 11am and give the cleaning staff time to prepare the rooms. We were one of amny couples waiting for rooms.

            • Single
              4.6

              Quiet environment

              dust in the room, weak minibar.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Spa and lesiure centre is excellent, good equipment, spotlessly maintained. Rooms are acceptable 4 star standard.

              Staff and service levels are poor, getting attention at the (empty) bar was difficult. Restaurant staff were intrusive, even while we were still in the bar, to the point of ignorance. Overall we felt the service levels could do with major improvement. Restaurant food was acceptable, but not at all memorable.

            • Single
              6.2

              Quality SPA facility; clean & luxurious rooms

              Expertise of the personnel, WIFI is extremely slow, breakfast personnel always makes mistakes

            • Single
              9.6

              Very helpful receptionist and bar staff

            • Single
              6.6

              Comfortable rooms

              Useless, slow and unreliable internet and they did not really seem to care I think these hotels need to realise that the internet is no longer a nice to have but with on demand SaaS business applications its a necessity.

            • Couple
              7.0

              Good location, comfortable, functional room.

              We wanted to extend check out time by half an hour so we could use the Spa - this was not accepted and was told we would be charged. A little inflexible I thought considerig the cost of the room. Depsite the brochure talking of a mini bar - there was no mini bar. The steam room in the Spa was broken which was disappointing.

            • Couple
              5.4

              we liked the bathroom and big bath. room was spacious

              golf course view is actually right outside thw window. too close.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              Spa facilities excellent, as was decoration.

              Dinner started at 7 pm and by that time my young daughter had faded. Would use the Spa lounge to eat earlier next time. Dinner was quite expensive.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Well run and clean, in a good setting. Very impressive Spa/Treatment facility

              Do not feel that a separate charge for breakfast is warranted, and bar prices are extraordinarily high.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              New modern clean and friendly staff. We recommend to others

              Suppose to offer spa facilities but this was really just a swimming pool. When we attended full of noisy children and hardly condusive to a relaxing spa break.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Nice big room, good restaurant, great swimming pool!
