We stayed here on a Sunday night using their Sunday stopover deal - breakfast, dinner and a bottle of wine for two were included in the price. They kindly agreed to putting a travel cot in the room for our 2 year old and we just paid extra for her evening meal. A double room would have cost £69 for the deal but we upgraded to a premium room (the deal cost £99) which included a very first floor large room, views over the garden and extra toiletries, drinks and snacks. Our first floor room was stunning, although there was no lift. Ground floor rooms are also available.
The setting is beautiful, large green grounds (perfect for running around) outside the beautiful grade 2 listed building with an impressive staircase and stunning stained glass. The building, especially near the leisure facilities, was a little tired in places but this had no impact on our visit.
Use of the leisure facilities is included, children are allowed to use the pool 7am to 7pm and there are also adult only jacuzzis, steam room, sauna and gym. They provide towels and locker keys free of charge.
The kitchens are very accommodating in their provision for toddlerdom and pregnancy, although we ended up not needing amendments. We were very pleased with the standard of food, especially given the price, and enjoyed the bangers and mash and child meal. The included wine was also surprisingly ok. Breakfast was particularly good, extremely friendly staff with a great range of continental and cooked breakfast. And a great music soundtrack including Bros!
This isn't claiming or trying to be a five star setting, but it offers a great value calm and pleasant setting suitable for business and leisure visitors alike, and completely suitable for families. Staff were unerringly friendly and interested, highly recommended. less
