Stayed for 2 nights. Rooms excellent even though a 'double bed' is really 2 singles pushed together. Basic tea/coffee facilities in room (no biscuits provided). Bathroom very clean and excellently lit, small point no soap dish just had to leave soap by the sink. Dinner in restaurant a little on the expensive side but the service and quality of the food was good. Breakfast choice is great however we had to wait a few minutes for a table to be cleaned and ready for us to sit at. The main negative point is the bar. One the first night no charge for a spash of mixer in a spirit on the second night £2.10 for the same splash - the barman was the same on both nights. Bar snacks were offered on a menu however the choice was very poor - out of all items on the menu only a couple were available. The bar staff were very indifferent (completely opposite to all other staff). Car parking prices excessive £14 for the 2 nights and the spaces were limited
Overall a 'not to bad trip' however the Ramside Golf & Car Club and Marriott County hotels are a better option if you can book into them.
Would we stay again - for the location the Premiere Inn offers that at a fraction of the price!
