We had an overnight stay in one of the stag rooms which have to add was lovely but a few issues could have made the stay so much better. The initial wait on arrival to be checked in wasn't really what you would expect from a 5* establishment the lady asked for our name then disappeared what seemed like a good 10 minutes taking a phone call and leaving us standing at the bar with our luggage not a good start! When we finally got shown to our room however we were very happy with it the hot tub being the highlight and we were in it most of the day. When getting ready however it was a struggle drying my hair due to the lead not reaching the mirror very well! I got over it but it was frustrating. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant food was cooked to perfection. Breakfast was also good however on checking out we were given the bill and adding 10 % service charge to food and drink is absurd. I am happy to pay the charge for the meal and drinks I received in the restaurant that is standard practise but when I am ordering drinks at the bar and taking them myself to my table/room what service am I getting for that? I have never come across this before and have stayed in 5* hotels all over the uk and it has left a sour note on what could have been so wonderful. So all said it is in a fantastic location , it has a wow factor on the interior design of the bar/restaurant. The hot tub room is nice especially for a special occasion but be prepared and take your flexible friend!
