We stayed a night over the May Bank Holiday and had a lovely time.
On arrival our car was valet parked and our bags taken to our wonderful room. Big bed and bathroom and a fantastic view of the lake.
The pool and spa areas were great and when we returned to the room and ordered ice it was delivered by room service in minutes.
We had dinner in the evening in the hotel and were given a table in the window which again had wonderful view over the lake and we really enjoyed the food, again the service was swift and attentive.
Although cooked breakfasts were not included it was far more than simply a continental breakfast. We could have eaten breakfast for hours!
Checkout was quick, though we did leave earlier than most.
All in all it was wonderful, we can't wait to get married there in August!
