First impressions were great, not far from the A45, and easy to get to. Parking was very close to the hotel.
We got a warm welcome at reception, and were quickly checked into our room. No problem getting about the hotel, all rooms easily signposted. When we got to the room, it was in very good décor, typical of what you would expect of such a hotel. The king size bed was really comfy, with very comfortable pillows! Both of us slept very well, no problems with noise in the night, we had a room overlooking the car park, but this wasn't an issue at all.
We'd booked treatments in the spa, which was a very relaxing treat, and we would definitely recommend!
Ate in the Zest Bar in the evening, a little pricey for what we ate, but to be expected. Food was good quality, especially the desserts! (The Crème Brulee was excellent!)
Breakfast was fab, good selection of cooked breakfast, with cereals and patisseries. One downside was that I got bacon that had been out for a while, and was swimming in fat, but that was the only problem.
Nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff in the hotel, from receptionist, concierge through to the waiters and waitresses during our meals. The location is ideal to have a feeling of "getting away from it all"
We will definitely be returning to the hotel again.
