Stayed here as part of a wedding party - the hotel was fully booked so was a little anxious especially after reading recent reviews that if the room was dreadful I couldn't ask for a move.
The room was fine - sash windows, one of which was blocked open so the room felt a little cold at first - quick 10 mins from the heater took care of that. During the night though the room was boiling and there isn't any air-con or fans. No mini-bar either, quite a suprise.
The layout in the hotel isn't very well signposted (even the main reception isn't that clearly marked) - you come to plenty of corridors where there are no signs indicating what goes where - so don't try wandering in heels.
Shame there's no leisure side to the hotel aside from the golf, pool and gym are surely the next necessary addition for the non-golfers amongst us.
Wine was £5.20 a glass (250ml) or £15.95 a bottle, can't recall the last time it was cheaper to buy wine by the glass.
Breakfast was ok, plentiful selection - as I said the hotel was full but didn't feel like a school canteen.
Staff were very helpful at all times, although the layout even seems to confuse them - they politely held doors for us only to find they were taking us to the wrong floor.
