After previous stay decided t use the conference facilities and the hotel for a business meeting with an overnight stay. The meeting room is excellent with great views over the kale. The room was well set up and Coffee breaks and lunch always perfectly on time. The twenty three delegates all enjoyed their stay and commented on how comfortable and clean their rooms were. The lounge is comfortable and inviting and made a lovely location to meet pre dinner. My comments would be that the bar is a little pricey (I am used to London prices) and the draught lager was flat on both evenings. I also echo the comments from previous reviewers that the bathrooms just require a little updating and modernising. In room 203 we had a lovely big room with separate lounge but the bathroom was cramped to say the least. Probably getting to old to have to stand in a bath to have a shower. That aside, excellent staff, reception brilliant and the conference organisation very thorough. I think we shall all look forward to returning.
