Well what a let down, Afternoon Tea, the service was extremely slow, waited one full hour after being seated, before our 3 tier plate of scones, sandwiches and desserts arrived. The desserts lacked anything chocolate! and the coffee came in a cup (no pots of coffee) our glass of Proseco was totally overlooked

I visited the Brasserie last Sunday afternoon with my family. There were 3 of us in total. Upon arrival there was no table available and we were invited to wait in the bar. We waited approximately 10 minutes and were shown to our table. We sat at our table for another 10 minutes and eventually had to ask a waitress...

Unfortunately we were only here for the one night, as the range of spa treatments etc. could have given a very good weekend. The room was large and very well appointed, not every place has a Nespresso machine in your bedroom, though they should have ! Bathroom and shower were also spacious and hot water was plentiful. The general condition...

Wonderful hotel that feels more like a home with comfortable drawing rooms and lounges to relax in. Fantastic staff and amazing food from Brooks restaurant! Didn't eat in their newest relaxed dining experience, The Brasserie, but it looked delicious so I will be sure to do so the next time I'm down. Ideal wedding location though you wouldn't even know...

I loved the hotel and the staff were amazing from the Reception to all the waiting staff at the dinner for the hotel. We couldn't find fault with anything. Beautiful hotel and experience. The only issue we had was that our drinks were collected from our tables any time we went to dance. This was upsetting as we had to...
