“Surprise anniversary break”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We had a deal booking for our wedding anniversary. Saturday night dinner, bed and breakfast and a free bottle of wine. We were concerned about the negative comments raised on this site, but we need not have been. Reception at the executive centre was fast and efficient, the receptionist being cheerful and helpful. This is a large hotel set up for corporate training, events and weddings. Our room was in the Wellington Lodge and it was lovely. It was clean, comfortable and reasonably spacious. The only negative was the kettle didn't work, which we did not find out until the morning when we wanted our morning cuppa. Too late to get it fixed. This block is about a 10 minute walk from the executive centre where the swimming pool and restaurant are which was ok as we could drive there if necessary.
Pool was ok, but very full and partially roped off for a private swimming lesson. Did manage a swim until a family decided to throw a rugby ball from one end to the other. Someone should have stopped that. Jacuzzi a bit small but nice, sauna ok but could not find the steam room. Changing rooms had no lockers so leave your valuables in the room.
Coffee pods everywhere which have nice coffee out of a machine as well as tea and milk, all complementary.
Our evening meal was in the Steam, Bake and Grill which was very nice. It is buffet style and was delicious with plenty of it. Staff were friendly and helpful. The bar was lively in the evening and it opened onto a patio with plenty of seating. Breakfast again buffet style and plenty of it. No excuse for going hungry. All in all a very nice weekend.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

stayed here last week for our family get together/golf break. Having read many reviews i was a bit nervous as what to expect especially as we booked through a golf agent. However, we had a fabulous time, the break was to celebrate my fathers 70th with 2 nights and 2 rounds of golf. The proshop team were outstanding, my fathers trolley broke and he would of been unable to play, the golf pro gave us his own personal power trolley as they were all booked out and the guys could not of done more for us, i wish my own local club had a golf shop like this. The other plus points were the course, breakfast and a comfy bed. My wife had a couple of issues in the bar with very slow service and being a landlord we were not impressed with the staff in the bar at all. a shame the pro shop dont run the bar. all in all it was great value, great weather and very enjoyable, would certainly recommend to golf groups . Mike

Room Tip: dont use the bar in the conference area when its busy

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times now. I fully suggest upgradding to the Mansion House where the rooms are truly beautiful (and free fruit is included!). We often go back for a spa visit, everyone is friendly and there is free buscuits and sweets everywhere! Great surroundings... there is also a beautiful pub just around the corner which would be amazing in the summer - sadly we were there in the winter but it was still very cozy. Hotel has everything you will need. Sadly, on quiet weekends the breakfast doesnt have a wide choice and is not always buffett, but still good quality. Fully recomend staying here, fully recomend a Spa treatment too. Will be back soon... Amazing team too.

Room Tip: Mansion House are the best rooms... they include free fruit!

We had made a late booking for this hotel, but managed to be housed in the Mansion House. Our room was pleasant had good views over the golf course. Our evening meal was very good and we found the service to be good, as was the food. We took a walk over the complex later on, and felt that we would have been disappointed if we had booked into the main complex. Breakfast next day was also good. The tea and coffee facilities near to reception was a pleasant surprise.

Room Tip: We got the impression that the rooms in the Mansion House might be better than the main complex, alt...

I have stated a Wokefield a few times before but have never walked around the grounds which were superb. Really pretty. Just eaten in the restaurant and the staff (chef who served us and waitress) could not do enough for us. My Son loves the free milk in reception and the Apply Mac's. A great place to stay and excellent value for money. We will be back soon!

Room Tip: Ideally stay in the main hotel but the Wellington Lodge is really nice.

Ive stayed here regularly and this is the first time ive used the spa. The staff in the spa are all amazing and i couldnt fault anything. I loved every second of it and cant wait to go back.
The rooms in the Executive quarter are basic and very outdated, in need of TLC but the rooms in the Mansion house are great and very clean and modern.
When booking packages the food served in the restaurant is horrible, buffet style which is understandable but not very edible. I found it bland and tasteless. (puddings are the best bit) I now when booking packages always tend to opt for eating in the bar, food so much better.

Room Tip: Mansion House rooms definitely worth that little bit of extra money

I arrived late at night on a late booking. I found the room to be quite nice with what I expected of a DeVere hotel though I'm not sure what the difference is with it being a Venues.

Sadly the tv didn't work even after the night porter intervened. At least I had the internet which was free.

The English breakfast was not great as it was warm at best.

The grounds and outside look fantastic and although it wasn't a great experience, it wouldn't stop me going again.
