I stayed at the hotel as a wedding guest, (the actual wedding took place in the hotel). If you are thinking of using it for your wedding, it is well worth considering,( It has a large disco area/bar, eating area and good sitting area with bar - go and take a look).
We booked a room for two plus breakfast for £180 for two nights. This was a special wedding rate and probably the price would be the same but without the included breakfasts at any other time. The outside of the hotel is Elizabethan and well renovated and extended. It stands on a slope overlooking quite sensational grounds - ideal for wedding photographs or an early wake up walk.
Inside the hotel has been carefully modernised and is clean and comfortable. The rooms are not huge but big enough and the bathrooms are quite large. Watch out for the shower though, which is over a bath - the bath sides are quite high, no hand rails or bath mats, so if you have an older member of the family they may have some difficulty. Most rooms have great views but not all - you should enquire if it matters to you. You can have bigger if you are willing to pay the extra.
The food was better than adequate although getting a good bottle of wine was impossible but then the price of around £16 a bottle was about half of what I usually have to pay in hotels. In fact I found the drinks quite good value over all. Unlike the evening meals breakfast was eaten on tables without table cloths on a help yourself basis but I couldn't find anything wrong with the food, except they cook the food as it is required so sometimes there was a pause between courses - but then it was freshly cooked and the staff were friendly.
I enjoyed the whole occasion. You can see in places that they are aware of keeping the overheads down, hence four stars not five, but I have paid a lot more for no better and I definitely have plans to return there in the future - so five stars for value for money!
