Our last visit to Powdermills was 14 years ago! At the time we had two large dogs and took them with us and they were made most welcome and loved the walks in the woods. We saw the Travelzoo offer and thought we must return. It is a delightful hotel but it has its quirks which I feel add to the enjoyment. Let me get the negatives over first. The food was excellent apart from I chose the duck for dinner which I had to leave some of it as it was chewy. The waiter asked if there was a problem and I told him it was chewy. He said he would speak to the chef.......nothing whatever happened after that. After dinner my husband was looking forward to the real ales, requested a pint of draught...."sorry it's off. It will be back on tommorrow". Not much good that evening plus they had run out of bottled real ales too. My husband was not happy. From entering into our room we tried to get internet, were told they had changed providers and would give us a new password. In spite of endless trips to reception we had no internet during the whole visit, which was important to my husbands business.
Positives, the hotel is in a stunning location surrounded by lakes and woods which really are a delight. The room was spotless and the food apart from the duck was excellent.
The hotel has an outdoor pool and in spite of us visiting towards the end of May, was being used by guests. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room and included in our deal was a lovely cream tea with home made scones. Delicious.
We had gone on a Travelzoo deal and so didn't want to make a fuss about the three negatives but were asked at the end of our stay if we had enjoyed it and had we filled in the questionaire. We told them there wasn't one in our room and they said "oh".
I would love to give this hotel 5 but because of the three negatives, I have to give four but I did feel it was value for the money we paid.It was not enough to stop us visiting another time as the location is second to none and so peaceful.
