The route to the hotel is quite tortuous (winding and very narrow roads) in fact once at the hotel you feel reluctant to go out at night as returning in the dark could be quite nerve wracking.
The outside space is good with a fair sized terrace offered lovely views of the countryside. Owing to the proximity of the M5 there is a constant road noise which can also be heard inside, perhaps the double glazing could be improved.
I booked a standard room for one night, the room was satisfactory, comfortable bed with a good sized bathroom. However, as stated above the noise from the road is constant, you will hear it even with the windows closed.
The evening meal was quite pleasant made even better by the entertaining couple on the next table, they said it was like faulty towers, the wine list is rather lacking (no red wine from France) and my personal dislike screw tops on wine.
The breakfast next morning was plentiful, although I do prefer to have a breakfast cooked to order, the buffet was nice a hot, and I was enjoying the experience until we were joined by a very large wasp, there were quite a few around the hotel
I found the layout of the leisure area quite disappointing. You have to walk through the gym to get to the sauna and steam room, the very small changing room is behind the reception desk, I really think this was an area were some changes could have been made. The swimming pool could also do with an overhaul. Broken grills with algae growing around, I did wonder if the filters were working properly. This area could also benefit from a toddler pool as the main pool is quite small.
I have ticked the very good category because it did represent good value for price paid. less
