Second time we've stayed here. First time for our ten year wedding anniversary which was lovely and this time was for a bday celebration for our children. I'd alerted the hotel to this and said I wanted to make the stay really special. I asked for soft drinks in a champagne bucket and a card saying happy birthday. I got what I asked for, and no more, drinks all charged for, tiny card. Fair enough, just thought they might have gone the extra mile but didn't get anything, not even a 'hello' to the kids at check in. Room was nice, great size for family room and traditional style, smelt slightly musty and lots of flies a little off putting but I guess that can happen! Was a little surprised for a 4 star spa hotel that there was no conditioner amongst toiletries? Left me a bit stuck, asked at spa and reception but none anywhere! Maybe my mistake, I must be spoilt! Dinner in restaurant couldn't be faulted, excellent food and staff really put kids at ease. Slept ok although corridor bit noisy, creaky floorboards (fair enough?) and voices carrying. Breakfast nice enough although buffet uninspiring and surprised no baked beans?? Sounds like I'm moaning a lot, we did enjoy overall. Perhaps I was just expecting a bit more for the price we paid (vs other places we've stayed).
