We went to Cragwood to babysit for our daughter who was attending a friend's wedding. The room was comfortable, modern and lean and with a huge bed, which delivered a good night's sleep. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. We watched the preparation for the wedding which seemed well organised. The siting of the ceremony itself, outside, was very special and the wedding party looked to have a good time.
We got to eat at the wedding breakfast and were surprised at the high quality of the food and the rapidity of the service. I have been to many mass catering events and the ability to turn out 40 plus fillet steaks all of good quality , is to be admired.
Because the hotel was totally occupied with the function we had to eat the Friday dinner and Saturday lunch from the bar menu. Good chips, but the majority of the choices were fairly humdrum. Breakfast was really good, lovely food and lots of it. Great croissants too.
The hotel is right by the lake and has pleasant gardens.
Wifi was in hotel, but not in the room. Nice lounges, though, where wifi worked.
