Visited again, but this time for our wedding anniversary. We had a huge executive double room no. 219 - It had a massive comfortable bed and there were two sofas and a table and a lovely en - suite bathroom all of which were spotlessly clean. This was in the main building.
Our stay was for two nights bed, breakfast and evening meal.
The food was fantastic and there was- as last time- plenty of it ! All the staff in the hotel were friendly polite and helpful. Ben the assistant manager was excellent - so keen to please, he is very caring, genuine, and happy in his work.
Two things we need to mention that could be improved - the corridor upstairs leading to our room, did not have any heating on and and neither did the restaurant both in the mornings at breakfast or in the evening. As we were wearing indoor clothing to sit and eat ( it had been only 2 degrees outside in the morning !) so we did feel quite chilly.
The other thing folk planning to stay, need to be aware of is that the main meal offered is the carvery and although they have all the different choices of meat and plenty of it ! They also have two or three alternatives on the blackboard. But if you are planning to stay more than a couple of nights, you may not want a carvery every day ! They do have a bar menu too for residents only but they tend to keep quiet about this so you have ask for it. It seems they really only want to promote the carvery.
We must stress again though that all the food served in the hotel restaurant was superb! less
