How does Marriott let things get this bad?Dinner awful, cooked breakfast poor. Service hit and miss. Queued in the Elite members section but got ignored so ended up going to the back of the regular queue for check in! This is a nice setting a could be really good. Management should be ashamed really. No attention to detail.

Arrived early and was able to check in straight away. Room was lovely and clean and the grounds were gorgeous. Everything is easy to get to if you drive and it is very peaceful were it is located. Would definitely stay here again if traveling back up to Birmingham

We visited the hotel for our works Christmas party. First impressions were lovely, great setting & good location. We had received emails from the hotel that check in for the group would be at 4pm but we could come earlier to use the facilities (there was over 100 of us). On arrival at 2pm we were told the same thing... More

This hotel is set in lovely surroundings which includes a golf course, the exterior of the building is attractive and promises much, but that is where the glory ends. The interior of the hotel is old and faded with little charm. The bedroom I stayed in was nothing special and the bed was uncomfortable. I was most unimpressed with the... More

Could write a very long review but will keep it short and sweet. Décor and appearance is like a throw back to the 80's early 90's. Not very cosy and not very appealing. Needs a lot of money thrown at it in my eye. Bar area not cosy and not a very welcoming wow this is lovely feel and lots... More

What is actually a very good hotel and lovely rooms is so let down by the poor customer serivice throughout the hotel. The noise and smell (sweat) in the bar areas from the people who had played golf was overpowering and made thise areas unpleasant.

It's a lovely drive into the Hotel and from the outside looks quaint. Disappointed that on arrival at 4pm, that my room wasn't ready and I had to take a seat and wait. Inside the decor looks tired, carpets look worn and some areas look barren, plain walls and lack of furniture/decoration. My room had peeling wallpaper and dirty marks... More

Location : Tranquil and beautiful. About a 20-30 minute drive from Birmingham even though it comes up on the Marriott website as being in Birmingham. Not a place to contemplate if you don't have your own transport as it's located down some country lane. Staff: Polite, pleasant and helpful.
