This was the wedding venue of a family member, we booked in for a 2 night stay. We arrived the after non before the wedding & originally booked to have dinner on the first night, then after reading the restaurant reviews on trip advisor, decided not to dine in the hotel dining room, this turned out to be sound advice, some of the wedding guests did and all told us it was expensive for such small amounts of food, tasted good, but not worth the money, we had the club sandwich & chips in the lounge, not the best we have eaten but ok, still pricey.
Our room was the Fuchsia Suite, at £165 per room per night B & B for 2, not bad value, the room was a large ground floor room in the East wing, clean, nice furniture, with chairs & sofa area, with a modern en-suite, with walk in shower & bath, which we had requested, twin beds comfortable, but not great pillows, we brought our own anyway, nice touches of sweets & biscuits & bottled water in the room. Also Free Wifi in the room & it worked.
Breakfast the next morning was very good, good choice well cooked, nice quality ingredients, but if you want black pudding with your breakfast, order it when you walk in, mine eventually arrived as I finished my breakfast. Staff are very nice and willing to help.
The wedding breakfast was superb, yes small portions, but delicious.
The evening buffet was also very nice, with unusual choices, very good, but we were all still full from our late lunch.
The grounds are beautiful & large, which I never got to walk around, here's why!!!
So what's with the POT HOLES, well outside the door to the East Wing, (we didn't know we could access this wing from inside) we were shown to our room, via the external walk, the Tarmac is very worn away, & full of deep pot holes, it was pouring down with rain and they filled up & you could not see them, ( no signs of warning) I sank into one, twisted my ankle, it blew up twice the size, I was only wearing low heeled shoes, thank goodness, but that put an end to my dancing at the wedding, shame, we had a fantastic band to dance to, Richard the wedding manager was very concerned, I didn't want to make any fuss so he came the next day to complete the accident book, after 2 days with my foot up, much better now, but it did ruin my day really, as i had to sit when all about was having fun dancing. They are having all the drive Tarmac re-done shortly, doesn't help me does it, I will expect a bouquet of flowers from the Hotel Manager.............
