“Very pleasant place to stay”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

We stayed at this hotel to enjoy the local towns of Solihull and Leamington Spa. The hotel is situated in the countryside but not a million miles away from civilisation. On arrival, we were greeted by Philip, who (after checking in) took our bags and showed us to our room. What a lovely guy he was. He told us what was in the local area and even put the kettle on for us! The room was very clean, modern and spacious. The pool was excellent and larger than most hotels we've stayed in. Again, the pool area and changing rooms were very clean. Breakfast at the hotel was also very good with lots of selection and all food was hot. The service was excellent too. We would definitely recommend this hotel and will return without a doubt.

Room Tip: Recommend the golf course views.

Treated my 34 week pregnant wife to a weekend which included a stay here. Before we arrived we received friendly service when making contact with the hotel, the staff made every effort to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Nice clean rooms, good breakfast and nice sunny feeling. Even though there was a wedding reception and a big party we were not disturbed and managed to have a nice rest. The 'party' rooms are located away from the rooms. The free spa facilities are clean and very nice. We went into nearby Coleshill for the evening where there is a variety Indian restaurants to choose from. Great stay, lovely location. Special thank you to Chloe and all the staff.

Just returned from a two nights stay and had the best time . Very relaxing, and possibly the best food I've ever eaten in a hotel restaurant ( the duck was sublime although my partner would vouch for the scallops!)
Great bar area with fab sofas and wonderful grounds - saw loads of local deer on the golf course......
Really enjoyed the stay . With thanks to all the staff who were helpful throughout .
Only let down was the charge for wifi ( unless you paid for room upgrade ) - think that was a big negative & a bit of a cheek !

Room Tip: Ask for golf view room . Wonderful views !

good rooms, great location, but staff at breakfast on both days were rude. Even when I told them they were being rude there was not even an acknowledgement. Rooms are very clean and modern. The layout of the hotel means it is not suitable for people with mobility issues, as the rooms can be quite far from the reception area which is the only way in and out.

Room Tip: High rooms facing out onto the golf course are best.

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend away at this lovely hotel. Having missed out on our aniversary weekend a couple of weeks ago, we were hoping it would be special, and it was. The staff were attentive, without being in your face. Service was really "SPOT ON". so much so that we are planning our next weekend there as soon as possible.
The food was exceptional, we stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast package, and there was no conpromise, the menu was extensive, great value for money and top quality fine dining.
The room was clean and spacious, with all the comforts you would expect from a quality chain like The Marriot.
The spa and swimming pool area, whilst not state of the art, where certainly good enough, clean and inviting.
The surrounding countryside, walks, golf course and external amienity's were great. No complaints. A wonderful relaxing weekend, we will be back. Special thanks to all the good hard working attentive staff.

I loved the white linen tablecloths and the proper table-settings. We were 5 friends having a relaxing lunch and being welcomed and looked after by attentive staff. The 3 course Sunday lunch is self service with a Carvery. The starter was a selection of cold meats, fish, salad or soup. The main, a selection of turkey or roast beef with (over-cooked) vegetables or a choice of two vegetarian dishes. The dessert and cheese selection was good and varied from fresh fruit to rice pudding. Coffee and chocolates were served at the table. It was a nice experience, so why not 5 stars? The food was not really all that tasty and the starter selection was poor. I am disappointed when the gravy is the same for all kinds of meat, there just is not enough flavour! Prior to the meal, we had a drink in the bar. I would have liked a glass of sherry but they do not stock sherry! My friend would have liked a tonic with Angostura Bitters, but this was not stocked either. So good, but not very good.
