We were recommended this hotel by a colleague who had been there a few years ago. I think the owners have either changed hands or have lost interest
The Hotel is set in lovely grounds but I'm afraid that's about it! The gardens are immaculate and are very pleasant to relax in with a glass of wine after a day in the office.
Most of the Staff were friendly and helpful however there were a couple of members of staff that let the hotel down. We arrived late and washed up before meeting in the bar. I was a little disappointed when the barman had shut the bar without asking us if we would like another drink. Understandably hotels choose when to shut their bars but as a resident It would have been nice if we were asked if we required anything more prior to the bar being shut.
The decor is very dated and the rooms and bathrooms require some drastic modernisation. The window frames are rotten and this causes some difficulty if you require to open your window for fresh air. It was very hot!
The breakfast was good with a good choice of both continental and full English dishes. The head waiter for breakfast was excellent however on the day he wasn't present it seemed to be a bit of bother to get a warm croissant!!
The wifi was non existent and when we queried the staff about the signal we were told that it didn't seem to be working that day and the next and the next
Overall not a great stay!
