We booked the 3 night package. It soon became obvious that there were many guests who had been before. At first I felt a bit excluded from the clique. Most of them mature clients who appeared to know the staff and owner.
The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful.
Our superior room was comfortable if a little on the compact side. It was in the linked annexe on the ground floor. Not recommended for light sleepers as the rooms above have creaky floor boards. Also quite a walk for those with mobility problems.
The buffet breakfast was good. Excellent porridge and choice of hot food. Expect to queue at peak times and be prepared to wait for items to be cooked if you want a full English.
The evening meals offered a good choice of dishes for all courses. Puddings and cheese board very generous helpings.
6 course NYE dinner menu was adventurous. I admit I was not keen on the scallops in curried cauliflower. The event was well managed and entertainment by Steve Davis excellent.
One criticism that the wine we wanted was unavailable and it wasn't just one.
The in door pool is small and crowded with more than 2.
Great location close to the town centre and plenty of free parking. More
