Our family of four stayed for two nights in two rooms in separate sections of the hotel. My lake-view room was pleasantly decorated and homely, perhaps a touch small for the price. The bathroom was also small, but the power shower made up for this! As other reviews have noted, there is a busy road between the hotel and the lake, but this didn't disturb us particularly, and there's really not much that can be done about it! The wooden furniture needed attention - squeaky bed and sticky runners in the chest of drawers. The wardrobe was bizarre - a normal double size but with the rail running front- to-back, so that the first item hid all of the others!
Our children's room was in the annexe - not much of a view but larger and with a bath. It was much blander but they were quite happy there.
Breakfasts were excellent, and the staff very courteous and helpful. We ate dinner in the "Cafe del Lago" in the leisure complex - basically a pizzeria, but the food was fine.
The gym is outstanding - high quality machines that looked brand new. The pool was a bit on the small side, but ok, the sauna and steam room small but in excellent order, and the outdoor hot tub a real bonus.
Given the terrible weather, the Low Wood was a real find. We sailed during the one day's respite from the rain (good value boat hire), and used the leisure centre intensively while it bucketed down! Without all of the facilities we would have had a pretty miserable time.
We were there on a 50% discount, which made it pretty good value; I'd blanch at paying the full rate.
