Absolutely adore the scenery around the Island, I've been here a few times and enjoyed my visit each time, I've not stayed at the hotel but me and my family have come for food and drinks which were really nice although I wasn't really fond of the chocolate milkshake as it didn't really taste chocolatey? Our friends are having a wedding here on monday hopefully all will go well!

Stayed at this hotel as part of a wedding party. The setting was gorgeous, rooms clean and with good facilities. We stayed on the island part of the hotel and so were placed in rooms overlooking the water which was beautiful.

I would definitely recommend this venue.

Good choice at breakfast from cooked options to fruit salad and cereals.

Stayed at this hotel for one night in June 2014 for pleasure. The location on an island in the middle of a lake is simply stunning and although I've travelled the world, there is nowhere quite like it. As the hotel literature said a gem in a hidden valley. It is best to travel by car or get a taxi if necessary, as it would be difficult by public transport. For a romantic destination this would be hard to beat. My room was an extremely comfortable double ( there are no singles) and had every comfort. The icing on the cake was the view over the lake from the balcony. However, I was over the disco, and was warned that should there be a wedding on these rooms can be noisy. Breakfast was taken in the main restaurant and was delicious. There was a wide choice. My Horst breakfast was cooked to order and served at the table. All service throughout the hotel was first class - friendly but professional. A real bonus is the fabulous swimming pool and spa also on the island at the back of the hotel. The pool has full lake views. All in all a great experience and one I hope to repeat soon. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: Be careful of rooms over the disco in the main hotel ( there is an annex) on the main land. If ther...

Stayed here on a business trip.
This Hotel is in lovely surroundings and the Hotel itself is lovely, the rooms are lovely (in the main building) and all have their own style about them.
The main restaurant serves lovely food and the service is excellent.
The surroundings are beautiful and the access to the main building is across a lovely bridge, surrounded by ducks and geese and baby goslings.
This Hotel is perfect for a wedding venue as the surrounding area offers great photo opportunities.
I love this Hotel and would 100% be back on business or pleasure love it !!!

We stayed at the Waterton Park hotel for one night for our wedding anniversary, as it was close to a concert venue we were attending. Having found the hotel online it certainly looked good but we didn't really know what to expect. We already want to return as we were very impressed.

The location itself is stunning, being surrounded by the lake, the golf course and the pretty well tended gardens which we found contributed to a very relaxing short stay. We had been concerned that being a wedding venue we may be ignored or overlooked by the staff but this wasn't the case. All the staff we encountered were efficient and friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble.

We had room 7 on the second floor of Walton Hall and felt sure we must have been unknowingly upgraded. We had mentioned on booking that it was our wedding anniversary and were met with a complimentary box of chocolates and hand written card which was a really nice touch. The room itself was much larger than we had expected with two tall sash windows, complete with window seats overlooking the garden and lake. The decor was luxurious in style, with a sofa, table and chairs, tv, tea and coffee making facilities and a large bathroom with separate bath and shower.

Breakfast the next day did not disappoint either. There was plenty of choice of the usual pastries, cereal etc and complimentary newspapers but it was the little touches that made all the difference - carefully laid tables, excellent waitress service, unlimited drinks and toast and a plentiful tasty full English. Again we wondered if we had made a mistake in the booking believing that breakfast surely couldn't be included in the price we'd paid.

On checking out, it transpired that the price we'd paid was the price charged for an executive double (we paid in advance) and did indeed include breakfast. This really is excellent value for money! Overall, we had a wonderful stay - this is a very romantic location, very relaxing and as good if not better than it looks.

Room Tip: Great value for money to be had on the rooms booked in advance in Walton Hall (Exec Double) - room 7...

Stayed at the hotel with my wife with one night in May whilst visiting relatives in the area. Strongly recommend it. Delightful hotel set in splendid grounds, with a golf course (for those who golf) literally surrounding the lake.

Very friendly and helpful staff.

The dining restaurant is splendid. Food quality was very high.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more for a dulux. The rooms are huge.
