I have visited previously and couldn't help but return with a buddy. the location is perfect with an amazing view over the countryside. With plenty of places to visit within a 30 minute drive, this really is a great place to base yourself for a relaxing weekend away (with or without family!).
As always, the staff are class A, every one of them goes the extra mile to make sure you have a great stay. The food and drink is top notch, I enjoyed a delicious steak and shared a recommended bottle of red with my mate which went down a real treat.
The room was great, very clean and tidy and with very nice amenities.
I used the gym, and wow, for a hotel gym? this is something special, it's recently had a make over and I can honestly say that it is far better than even the most up market independent or chain gyms around. All the equipment is well kept or brand new. I passed nearly 2 hours without thinking I wanted to get out! but with the bar just upstairs, I did lend myself to the bar shortly afterwards for a refreshing pint :D
I can't thank the hotel and staff enough for making every visit special and enjoyable.
I will definitely be returning for many years to come. less
