Spent a week at The Manor House with three teenagers. Everyone had a great time. The staff are young and from all corners of the planet, all of them (bar one local girl on the hydro spa reception, who could learn a lot from her European colleges ) were friendly , Polite, helpful and made us all feel welcome . Some of the rooms are being decorated and upgraded , but this all takes time and money. A few of the rooms are a bit scruffy , but this won't spoil your holiday . You won't have time to sit in your room criticising the decor . During our stay here we played crazy golf, ten pin bowling, archery, yoga, Pilates , swimming , hydro spa, badminton, deep relaxation class, painted porcelains , made candles , has massages and facials , bought reduced price tickets for The Eden project ++. The food is fine, plentiful and always piping hot , buffet breakfast and lunch with hot and cold choices . Plenty of choice for dinner too We had a coeliac in our party , but this wasn't a problem as every day there are gluten free options.
If you want 5* boutique and cordon bleu menus! If you like moaning and think it's okay to be rude to waiters! then don't go to the Manor House. If you want to have a busy week and try lots of activities you haven't done before, want value for money and a relaxed environment that caters for every generation then I can highly recommend . Mostly everything is included , between four of us we spent under £20 on crafting extras in the whole week
