I went to this hotel for a valentines weekend, firstly it has to be mentioned when you come up to this hotel and approach its sprawling landscape it looks amazing. Also when you enter it is very impressive with friendly staff and a large oak living room with a roaring fireplace. What is interesting is that the rooms range from a 2 star to 5 star hotel. I think in the past this hotel must have been amazing hotel with fewer rooms but now it has put a room almost everywhere. We had one of those special deals an agent found for us but that pretty much puts you in an average size room in what seemed to be the basement which now had an extra 30 rooms. This would be like taking a flight on a more expensive concord jet only to find out the seat and service was exactly the same as any other plane. Overall the stay was great, close proximity to the town center, and the food the night we ate in was very good, actually better than I had expected. I highly suggest paying a lot extra for a premium room to be "wowed" or else you might be in an average room you could find in any number of hotels there for a lesser price.
I would definitely go again if I was planning to use the spa (they were fully booked the weekend I was there) or have a golf outing.
