“Christmas Staff Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

After a few years of hit and miss Xmas staff parties this year we decided to find a venue that could be exclusive to us and that would give the staff the freedom to mix without being too formal. The Stables Bar at the Hall Garth was ideal and from 7pm - midnight we had the run of the bar for our party of 40. Everything was taken care of before the event and the GM of the Hall Garth provided lots of various options to make it a party to remember. We opted for a Hot Fork Buffet for the catering and for the entertainment we chose the Pig Racing and Karaoke. Also thrown in was the option for some of the team to take advantage of the golf course prior to the party which was taken up by 4 of the staff who had a great game of matchplay in the afternoon. The course played really well and the greens were so true for this time of the year. The food was excellent with plenty to choose from and there were no complaints from any of the staff. Pig racing proved to be a hugh success and brought out the competative streak in most and the Karaoke went down a storm. All in all we had a wonderful time and the staff have already asked if we can book the Stables bar for next years party. We would like to thank all of the staff at the Hall Garth for making this the best Xmas party so far.

We stayed here as part of an Xmas part night.
We all met at The Stable Pub which is part of the hotel complex. We had a few drinks and a bite to eat, the food was very nice.
On check-in the staff were very friendly and efficient.
Our room was small and the bed not quite a double, but the room was cosy nice flat screen telly and plenty of sockets for chargers and straighteners etc.
The Xmas part night was very good, good service food was very hot and tastes.
All in all a really good night would definately return

Dear Starky 63
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am delighted you enjoyed your Christmas party as well as the facilities and service at the Hotel
I note your comment regarding the size of your Double Bed, the smaller rooms do have a standard double bed in each of them and the larger rooms have either a Kingsize or Zip and Link 3" beds.
I hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you again in the future.

Stayed at the Hall Garth this week for two nights. Had a very nice room in the stables (room 11), was spacious and clean. The pool, sauna & steam room were all very clean and welcome after a working day. Breakfast was good, a nice choice and quickly served.
My only concern was being woken in the early hours on my first night by the sound of the pipes screeching and banging very loudly.

I would return to the Hall Garth for a leisure break, staff were all pleasant and I enjoyed my stay.

Dear Ploddy 22
Many thanks for your kind review. I am pleased you enjoyed your 2 night stay with us. I note your comment regarding the banging noise from the pipes, occasionally we experience air in the system, when this happens the Duty staff are equipped with radiator keys to deal with this.
I am delighted the staff looked after you, I will pass your feedback on to the team.

Kind regards

After getting lots of work done on our house my husband treated us to a 2 night weekend break and this really did the trick. It was so relaxing. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the old part of the hotel and were upgraded to a very spacious room with a four poster bed (which was extremely comfortable) and enjoyed a bottle of sparkling rose and chocolates on arrival. We took advantageous of the spa facilities and enjoyed it so much that my husband and I have both become members. We dined in the wine glass restaraunt which was very romantic and the food was delicious. The waiter was very knowledgeable as far as the food and wine were concerned and even enlightened us with a little history of the hotel. We plan to go back again soon and would definitley recommend this to others.

Stayed for a night mid-week and had a really enjoyable time. Was allocated a suite in The Grannary which was massive !
The bedroom was spacious and the bed very comfortable.
The hotel has a health spa. The gym was very well equipped, the swimming pool was fine and the steam room was the best steam room I have ever been in !
We had dinner in the wine glass restaurant and the food was excellent. The staff were are friendly and helpful. All in all a lovely evening in a very nice establishment which is very handily placed for the A1. I would have no hesitation staying here again.

Stayed November 2013, travelled on business

We stayed here for a close relative's wedding at the end of August. The venue for the ceremony was excellent and, because the weather was so good, it was nice to be outdoors instead of in a stuffy room.
We had a very good wedding breakfast and our hotel room really was very nice, including the 4 poster bed.
The morning breakfast was very good and was brought to our table by the friendly waiting staff. The only thing that really spoilt it for us was the attitude of a member of the residents' bar staff; he really couldn't have been less helpful, and was particularly rude to one of the young ladies in our party. You don't expect that when you're paying premium prices for drinks.

I am delighted you enjoyed you overall experience.
Please accept my sincere apologies for the lack of customer service received on the late bar.
I can assure you this is not the standard we strive for here and I spoken to those staff involved and remedial action will be taken.

Had a weekend break at the Hall Garth and really enjoyed our visit. Easy to find not far from the A1, but very rural. Nice friendly welcome and thorough introduction to the hotel. Nice room on first floor in a newer part of the hotel, solid floors with no creaky boards. Went down to stables bar to watch the rugby on the big screen, nice and warm with a good atmosphere, shame we lost! Booked for dinner included in deal and had a very pleasant meal served bu good staff, able to deal with my GF request. Room very warm and struggled to control radiator. Great breakfast slightly spoilt by large family with kids who had finished but continued to sit at a table needed for other and allow their kids to misbehave.
No qualms about going back again. Good job.

Room Tip: can't comment on rooms attached to stables bar, but main hotel was quiet all night.
