We had high hopes (in September 2012) but sadly they were not met. The staff on reception were helpful and well trained. However, when ringing up for room service, the staff were less than polite. The room (in the Coach House) was clean and of a high standard however we had to endure the smell of paint fumes and the noise of maintenace work throughout our stay. Plus the bar was closed and the hotel didn't think to warn us beforehand or apologise. The food was at best, average. The menu stayed the same the three nights that we stayed and we had the worst pork sandwich we have ever had (all fat and grissle). Breakfast is definitely the best meal of the day but ridiculously expensive. Worse still, my boyfriend was trying to propose to me throughout the trip but was thwarted time and time again by workmen pumping the lake, the church being closed and trays full of empty and dirty plates and mugs etc on the cricket pitch. It was so romantic when he finally found the right moment, in the dark, in the grounds.
The highlights were the tennis court, the pool (but only at night as other members and their children ruin it in the day) and the spa. Highly recommend the 'Mud for Two' and hot tub and the massages and the staff there were exceptional. Otherwise, we feel completely ripped off.
