Just returned from a Monday to Friday break at this hotel & have to say it was extremely good.So much to do that my friend & I decided not to go on the two coach excursions that had been arranged by our party.The food was absolutely exquisite & a special mention for the two no.2 chefs 'Scottish Dave' & 'Lee' who gave us a very informative lesson on how to cook omelettes-even jam ones!There are beautiful grounds to walk round and a lovely terrace looking down over a carp lake where it was very nice to be able to sit & have a quiet drink or listen to live music.The room was very comfortable(could do with some new softer pillows though).A lovely heated,indoor swimming pool-not too big, where you can have a quiet swim or get involved in the aqua fun at 5pm each evening.The weather was more than kind to us during our stay so each evening was nice to sit outside until the entertainment started at around 9.30pm.It might be an idea to choose your stay depending on what entertainment is planned because some acts command a younger audience than others.Ours wasn't a themed entertainment week like Michael Jackson or Status Quo for instance so the holiday makers were older than us but it didn't mar our stay.The meal times are a bit regimented-you have to book a slot for the duration of your stay and only between 6 & 7.30pm.Breakfast was 8-9.30am although in some of the literature it reads 8-10.As a result of this we arrived for breakfast the first morning at 9.30 to find that it was all being packed away,however,the restaurant staff were extremely understanding & cooked fresh eggs for the two of us & put us at ease.A very laid back atmosphere & a very enjoyable stay.
