After a three hour journey from Cheshire, I was looking forward to staying here and using the spa, but there were various disappointments. The spa could definitely have done with a facelift as the ceiling looked like it was rotting away. The food in the restaurant was stodgy, badly cooked, and overpriced, and the staff therein not very helpful at...

Stayed here on business, there is plenty to do if your energetic and the rooms are clean, tidy and modern. I'd recommend a stay if in the area although if you like a wander in the evening there isn't much else in the area.

The hotel location is very nice and the view from the room over the golf course was lovely. The staff were helpful & friendly. We ate in the restaurant, which I would describe more as a glorified cafe, but the food was good and the portions huge. The only criticism I would have, is that the service at breakfast was...

I was concerned that the prices may be expensive as it is a hotel.... However we were so pleasantly surprised! The prices at the bar were very...

My partner and I spent the weekend here as we were attending an event held at the club. From the moment we arrived at reception we felt the staff was very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast and dinner during our event were fabulous and the team couldn't do enough for us. We had a couple of treatments the day after the...

Overall very nice, had a great weekend, all staff very friendly and polite, clean rooms and very comfortable, but ..... We had a 'spa' stay and the pool was being used for swimming lessons, with parents watching from the viewing area! There were only 3 beds around the pool, and there wasn't a relaxing atmosphere with people 'viewing' the area....
