We stayed from Friday night to Sunday morning. It was a birthday present from my partner. The location is beautiful and the hotel is perfectly situated. Unfortunately on arrival we were told that there was an event on that weekend and the conservatory would not be available on Saturday. However, it turned out that unless you were part of the party, the actual conservatory was not available for our entire stay.
The problem is you pay for the view and the location, so not being able to even go into the conservatory meant we could not enjoy the beautiful views while relaxing at the hotel. The party was a wedding and overtook the whole of the hotel, so we felt we were intruding by even sitting in the small bar area. As the weather was bad and we had car problems, we had to retire to our room at 9.30pm on Saturday as there was nowhere else to stay in the hotel. The music was loud (it would be as it was a wedding), but this didn't help us as it went on until 12.30am. Members of the party were outside our bedroom window talking and shouting until nearly 1am. It was disappointing that the hotel took a booking from us, when there was a wedding on, it wasn't fair for both parties.
I thought we could enjoy the view on the Sunday morning for breakfast, but sadly as we were not part of the party again, we were shoved on a table in what felt like the corridor! The breakfast was a buffet style and was average. However, we ate both nights at the hotel and the evening meals were lovely. I would like to stay again, but I would be very apprehensive as having a massive party take over the accommodation, there is nowhere to relax other than your room. less
