We stayed here as part of a group to celebrate a special birthday of one of our friends. We were booked in overnight and had also booked the cabaret. evening- a Motown tribute group called The Supreme Dreamgirls.
I'll tell you about the meal and entertainment first. Could not fault either. The portions were generous to say the least- one of our party ordered a cheeseboard as his dessert. I have never seen so much cheese on one plate in my life! So much so that at least four others enjoyed the cheeseboard as well as their own choices. I had a chocolate hazlenut brownie- huge chunk of choclately hazelnutty deliciousness. If I was being picky- and because this is a review I feel that I should, perhaps a few more vegetables could have been served with the main courses. The entertainment was excellent. The group sang a selection of Motown Classics and interacted with the audience in a fun way. Following the live act there was a disco- during which I hopefully danced off the chocolate brownie! Bar prices are what you would expect from a hotel. A pint of Carling costs £3.90
We stayed in a double room- no complaints apart from the towel rail that was blasting heat out like a furnace. Made the bathroom quite warm. We had tea/coffee making facilities, a hairdryer, iron and ironing board in the room; complimentary toiletries in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. We stayed in Room 9- some of the other ground floor rooms are quite a hike from reception. If you have any mobility issues I would suggest asking for one of the lower numbered ground floor rooms.
Breakfast is seved in the restaurant which has a lovely outlook onto the very pretty, and well maintained, gardens. It is completely self- service- coffee tea, fruit juice, toast and cereal are all available as well as traditional cooked breakfast items. Again, no complaints about anything.
Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and would be happy to stay again and recommend to others. less
