If you read the other reviews a really consistent theme emerges and I agree with it. Staff who are good and deserve somewhere better. The menu looked laughably ambitious, but surprisingly delivered all it said it would, really well. But you do wonder if the management have been to a good modern restaurant and noticed how things are done these days: a jug of water without having to ask. Condiment sets that don't remind you of a cheap cafe, etc. Bedrooms are old fashioned and just adequate, will stay if company pays but not on my own money!

The car park, location and staff are all good, the restaurant food is of a high quality. My room was upgraded to Standard (glad I didn't experience a sub standard room! Shower in room 26 was very poor - cheap bathroom fittings incapable of delivering hot water in high volume, ventilation fan noisy and loo cistern takes an age to noisily re fill. Decoration is tired, overall - adequate

The hotel is tired: the shower was over the bath and powered by the two taps instead of a single control, bathroom decor similarly average and the bedroom and hall carpets were stained. The adverse comments end there. The breakfast is good with generally quality ingredients (could do with freshly squeezed orange juice rather than concentrate), the bed was very comfortable and the staff were professional, friendly and helpful. The price of a room is competitive, compared to surrounding hotels and you don't pay for parking, but we paid extra for a large double, ended up in the new extension and didn't think the extra was worth the money.

Room Tip: Try to get an upgrade into the Clarendon Suite building.

I decided to go for dinner with a friend at Marsh Farm's Glasshouse Restaurant and I was not disappointed. I had a lovely a 3 course meal and an amuse bouche, as a little extra upon arrival at the table, which was a great touch and very tasty. My starter was superb; a Stilton and mushroom pasta with strong and beautiful flavours, me and my friend both opted for steak cooked to our liking, presented perfectly on a board and finally the prettiest dessert I've seen. No complaints!! lovely food, lovely setting and great service. Will return soon.

My husband and I got married here this weekend and can honestly say that we are extremely grateful to everyone in this hotel.

The hotel is in a beautiful location with a great function room. I would highly recommend the bridal suite (room 38), which is beautiful with a four poster bed, walk in shower and huge bath. The food was delicious and all staff were friendly, professional and made our day so special.

Staff were friendly and helpful but the double room was very small - perhaps okay for one night but not the two we were staying. Luckily we were out most of the time as I wouldn't have liked to spend much time in the room as cramped. The pillows were also very flat and need replacing. The room we had was in a annexe and the stair carpet needed cleaning. More the feel of a motel rather than a hotel - probably better in staying in the main building perhaps?

First morning cooked breakfast was order at the table and then served and the sausages were over cooked. Second day the cooked breakfast was buffet and again the sausages were wrinkly and overcooked so no taste. The leatherette chairs in the dining room need replacing as worn.

With a little work this could be a nice place to stay as the staff were welcoming.

We have been here twice for afternoon tea both on the off chance. Both times we were greeted & treated very nicely seeing as both times were after funerals! The afternoon tea's have been brilliant & although quite pricey, the quality of the food & cakes is of high standard. It is the best for afternoon tea in my opinion in the area.
