The hotel itself is well presented, clean, warm and rooms and bathrooms were large. The murder mystery package was great fun, but a little basic if you're expecting a full clue filled, challenging mystery. A great way to fill a few hours over a 3 course dinner but nothing too challenging. The bar was brilliant on a Saturday night -...

Dear CharlotteKirsch Thank you for taking the time to review your Murder Mystery weekend. We have found that over the years our guests would prefer a "light hearted" Murder Mystery evening as it tends to be more fun and enjoyable and this is how we describe it but we will certainly take your feedback on board. .

Had a meal with friends. We were put at a table in a dark corner so dark could hardly see menu. It was also quite cold. Starters were just okay - bagged lettuce as side salad! Vegetables tasteless. Chips mediocre. Streak dry and tasteless. No one asked if meal was ok or if we needed anything else during the meal...

Dear Dnsjin I was very disappointed to read your review, however, I realise that without knowing our downfalls we cannot strive to improve.

Hotel is fabulous but what makes this place special for me is the staff. From Reception to Bar, absolutely fantastic. Double rooms are spacious and clean (Towels a bit small though). Quite expensive for drinks but with the service provided it is worth it.
