We rarely return anywhere but we had stopped here Easter 2012 and wanted to take my husbands elderly parents for a 50th wedding anniversary treat. We knew they would like the traditional room and food so rebooked to come back late May this year.
We had booked independently so I emailed the hotel before travel - they sent back a lovely response and gave us a table in the convervatory overlooking the lake. They also did a cake for my husbands parents which they loved.
The table you are allocated is your table for the duration of your stay - breakfast and dinner. We found the food very good although we were only there for 3 nights. Breakfast is fine with adequate choice and the dinner in the evenings was freshly prepared and of a good quality. I don't think for the money you can complain about the food. The coach parties are seated in the proper restaurant next door so the noise level is not too bad
The bar is fine and the drinks good value. You get little nibbles with the beer and wine and biscuits with coffee and tea!
The rooms are large and we had booked lake view which is lovely. They are quite dated but very clean and have all you need. Shower is very powerful although there was a small issue with the water temperature in the mornings - i think all the coach guests get up and ready at once and so it puts pressure on the water system!
The hotel is on a busy road but in an elevated position so you are not disturbed by traffic noise and this does enhance the view from your room and dinner table.
I would say that if you stay here you do really need a car - public transport is limited - a car will give you freedom and flexibility and there is ample free parking at the hotel.
Staff are very friendly and will do their utmost to make your stay comfortable and pleasant
This was an ideal choice for us
