The hotel is somewhat hyped up in the literature but a disappointment in reality. We stayed there over New Year for 3 nights, and to be honest, the celebrations were a little bit flat. They managed to conjure up party hats at the NY Eve meal, but the food was pretty much the same as the other two nights (glorified Toby carvery in Christopher's restaurant) and not much effort was put in to the meal side of things. The disco was OK, but again, could have been any old disco. Best part was the room in the Pavillion building which was very good (and peaceful). We had stayed in a hotel in Kikby Lonsdale (Whoop Hall) the previous New Year and the food there was excellent compared with this one - they really put an effort into the celebrations with fireworks afterwards, and it was cheaper there. Service in the restaurant was slow at this hotel and they left dirty plates on your table whilst you were having the next courses - not good. Overall disappointing and would not recommend if you want to go somewhere special - OK as a run of the mill place though.
