“Unusual layout but lovely grounds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Our room was very nice & on the first floor of Anderson block but the layout of the hotel is slightly strange with a utilitarian feel - blocks of accommodation arranged over a fairly large area and it has the sense of a place used on a regular basis for conferences etc - often the case with De Vere hotels. We had chocolates, water & fruit waiting for us in the room & I think our room was bigger than standard with a small seating area in front of the tv.

The restaurant is in a separate block which was a few minutes walk away. We stayed from 28 to 30 December so had to get wrapped up warmly to go for meals. On the plus side the weather was bright but chilly which made it great for walks around the lovely grounds but I wouldn't have been so happy with the walk to the restaurant in heavy rain even though the reception area has plenty of brollies you can borrow. The mansion on the site is very pretty with gorgeous views from its terrace area. I suspect it's very popular with wedding parties.

Disappointingly the beauty spa had closed only the previous week although they still had a display area in reception - I should have checked but thought as it was likely to be a fairly quiet time I'd have no difficulty getting an appointment for a bit of pampering and the spa was still listed on the hotel website.
.
There's not much in walking distance of the hotel as it's in a (very smart) residential area apart from a few shops at the bottom of the hill. We ate all meals in the hotel. Breakfasts were fairly good and the food was fine otherwise - mostly buffet though - but the provision for vegetarians tended towards stodgy & uninspired - baked pasta or veggie burger in the bar. I had a main course salad at lunchtime but it was literally just a huge bowl of lettuce & some grated parmesan with dressing. Some roast veggies or even avocado would have cheered it up a bit. Service over lunchtimes in the bar area was pleasant but not particularly efficient with long waits for some of our party's food to arrive whilst others had practically finished.

If you get a good deal & have reason to visit this area, it's worth a try.

Rooms are very basic. Very noisy with doors banging during the evening due to the poor construction. I could hear the next room and people walking down the corridor outside the room. Needs an overhaul to bring it up to a good standard. Food is ok in the restaurant with most staff being friendly and helpful.

This hotel is so much better than all the negative reviews. The room was spotlessly clean, especially the bathroom. Nice little touches, chocolates and bottled water when we arrived back in the evening. Breakfast was good. The hotel grounds are beautiful well worth a wonder around the lake and down to the outside chess set, the views are amazing.
The negatives are, the floor boards are thin and kids in the floor above kept us awake, we had children with us but we were careful to ensure the children didn't run around the room, maybe families should be allocated ground floor rooms. This was my only gripe. I would say try this hotel, much better than you would expect and it certainly does not deserve the poor reviews.

Room Tip: Better than expected, its a shame it has bad reviews as its well worth a visit

Stayed last night. The building is an old government training centre lots a different buildings connected by a warren of walkways! Different, some might say quirky but it reminded me a bit of halls of residence! The bedroom and bathroom are quite pokey and the bed/mattress was as hard as nails and very creaky! There was also an extra room with a solitary wardrobe and chair very odd! Must have been the filing room in a previous life! The staff are friendly and helpful and the bar food we had last night was good. Breakfast was okay plenty of it but not special. Looking at the demographic in the breakfast room it certainly appeals tp the 18 to 25 year olds. All I can say is there's fundamentally nothing wrong but if you're looking for a bit of comfort, space and a few extras then don't book here.

Great place to have a party! The staff were brilliant, friendly and attentive. I would definitely have another party here, we had 50 guests and they all had a great time! All requests were met. Thank you Devere for your hospitality 10/10! And great value for money too!

I booked here a few months before my arrival as de vere had a £10 per person per night deal so I quickly booked for 3 nights over valentines. After booking I wish I hadnt because I read all the horrible reviews and was not looking forward to staying there. On arrival the reception lady was friendly and gave us all the info we needed and went off to find our room. The room was in the BRIDGES block and was very nice and SUPER SUPER CLEAN the shower was the most powerful shower I have ever used. It was nice to have some water and chocolates in the room on arrival. The first night we went to Loch Fyne for dinner and was only about 10 minutes away (highly recommended amazing food) the second night we ordered room service from verve deli and I think the presentation was very nice (chips etc come in little takeaway style boxes) although the chicken in my bap was horrendously dry but my partners pulled pork baguette was really nice.
A couple of small things we was not happy about was the adjoining door in our room which made it very noisy and on our first night our neighbours were loud and we heard everything. Pot holes in the car park by reception are really bad!! Im just glad we came in my partners car and not my small car as it would have damaged it really badly. We had left a imprint of credit card at reception but then room service and breakfast wouldnt let us charge to the room? I found this quite embarassing and not very good service


Breakfast we had on one day was OK, the cooked breakfast was nice sausages were delicious and so was hash browns but there was no baked rolls, cheese or muffins. I would stay again if I was in the area but not much near the hotel so need to drive all the time.

Room Tip: bridges block seemed nice
