My Dad & his partner treat us both to an afternoon at the castle inn when she saw an offer on Groupon for Afternoon tea and use of the facilities.
On Arrival the hotel was very quiet, it was a Saturday. We made our way through to the fitness suite where we my only disappointment of the whole day was the unfriendly and quite rude lady on the reception desk of the leisure suite (not to be rude, her shirt was also filthy,covered in bleach stains all over front and back) which i was shocked about as the lady in the general hotel reception was so polite and lovely.
The pool, gym and sauna area are well used, but the gym has some good equipment and they are all clean and tidy.
After getting changed we headed through to the lounge area where we were served our afternoon tea. There was a selection of sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, and a selection of cakes ( scones were warm, and we asked for plain scones and no seafood) .
Couldn’t fault the food at all the staff were lovely, and the chef even checked all was okay with our food.
I would definitely re-visit but hopefully next time, the lady on the leisure reception could be a bit politer and maybe add some music to the lounge where we had our afternoon tea and in the gym. less
