We discovered this gem almost by accident after my youngest daughter started to feel unwell on our recent holidays, booked on the last minute to find us a bed for the night we didn't really have much in the way of expectations, and were very pleasantly surprised.
The Main building and grounds are very imposing and the staff were incredibly helpful even providing us with cleaning materials after my youngest had thrown up in the car. The accommodation blocks did feel a little "basic" compared to the main building but once in our family room the interior was fresh and modern, and the kids beds were already set up for us despite the 20 or so minutes notice we had given them of arrival.
If I had to criticise the room, it would be the flat panel television was lost on the wall it was mounted on and could have been a bigger size. The hotel swimming pool looked inviting, but I didn't get around to trying it. The breakfast was a comprehensive buffet, and was absolutely top notch, with very good quality sausages and bacon. Although the hotel seems to target business conferences, it is a really nice place and we will happily return again in the future.
