My goodness what can I really say??
We have stayed at this hotel a few times this past 12 months and have never had any grumble - Yes the hotel rooms need a decorate (who'shouse never does??) but they are still good quality (maybe a new mattress or 2 would help!!).
We arrived on 18 Decemeber 2008 to leave our car for 10 days over Christmas and I picked up a leaflet in reception about a 3 night gala over New Year which we chatted about and then booked - HOW GLAD WE WERE.
The hotel transfers are as told when booked so how can anyone complain!!!!!!!!!!!
The hotel grounds are very spacius and the walk along the river bank is well worth the effort - especially as I tentitively asked THE question as we walked!!
What more des anyone really want from a hotel?? We had a lovely meal on the night before we flew and were offered either the carvery or the full menu - we opted for the latter and the food was very good (albeit the sauce was a tad watery!! but sorted out very quickly)
When we arrived back for the New Years break it was 3am and we were told that the hotel had double booked our room and that we could change what they had given us the following morning if we needed. DEFINITELY NOT NECESSARY.
The following 3 days and nights were top notch - the food, the entertainment, the price of the alcohol etc etc etc.
Our New Year was really made by the staff who work tirelesssly, and made the whole experience totally A1 - they were unbelievably friendly, joined in etc and never stopped.
Maybe we have low level of appreciation of such places but I can honestly say that this is one Christmas and New Year NEVER to be forgotten
Don't get the feeling that this is perfect - where could be?, but for the price this was unbeliveably spot on. The hotel, the staff, the entertainment, the food - EXCELLENT.
I really have no problems with this hotel or its facilities and will definitely be reusing the place in the future.
How do we rate it - 4 star
