A number of us stayed here as we were all guests at a wedding at nearby Doxford Hall.
Staff were helpful and friendly enough as we arrived early and our rooms were ready. Even managed to book us a taxi at short notice which was extremely helpful.
The rooms are definitely a little tired and need refreshed. In particular the bathrooms - grout on the tiles all round the bathroom was messy, there was grime surrounding the shower area and the shower head itself didn't stay in one position (kept pushing itself to 1 side?!). The floor for some reason was also sticky. During our stay, the weather was also on the warm side, and in the evening, it was hard to sleep as the room felt humid. This may be stretching the mark a little but air conditioning would have been a god send!
Also, an ATM would be handy here, albeit there is one at the garage a short walk away across terrible ground. First time in a long long time I've seen an ATM that charges £2 for withdrawals though, so be warned!
We didn't try out the attached restaurant/bar but did venture into the cafe which is on the pricey side, but considering the whole place doubles as a service stop I suppose it is to be expected.
Overall, okay for 1 night, but don't think I could have stayed any longer.
