The hotel is verty isolated, which for us was ok, they are trying to make this a high end hotel and in many ways thay have achieved this, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and would do anything to please, the rooms are very high class and give you that wow factor, and you could not fault anything about them. There is a bar but it is in the reception area and just does not feel right and lacked atmosphere, although there were not many guests staying that night, it still felt strange, it deperately needs a seperate bar area.
We ate in the very plush resturant but unfortunately the lamb shanks we ordered arrived in a nano second and as we expected were micorowaved, but not for long enough and were still frozen in the middle!!!!, for the price paid (£12.95) you dont expect micorwave meals!!. that said the breakfast was excellent. The hotel desperately needs a pool or something extra to do as it just has something missing.
To sum up, the hotel is set up for weddings or large parties at the cost of couples or small groups when it could easily cater for both, our stay was a stop off while touring and it did what we needed, but thats all, if your looking for a romantic break and dont intend to leave your room much this this is perfect for you, but if your looking for that extra unfortunately this has not got it, if there was a pool and a seperate bar area and then they put the microwave in the bin this would get 5 stars and somewhere you would go out of your way to stay but until then ......
