Stayed here this weekend. Rooms are very clean, the swimming pool is lovely complete with steam room and aroma room. Didn't get to use the spa! The golf course is great, quite challenging for the husband! The staff here are very good, friendly and welcoming. We particularly like the two wine experts at dinner! Food was exceptional. Will defiantly be...

I stayed here because of a friends wedding. The hotel is lovely, the staff were charming, helpful and courteous. The room was comfortable enough, clean enough and the shower in the bathroom was fantastic. I am sorry to say there are a couple of buts: - Our room was beneath some sort of vent that hummed continuously. No one seemed...

We stayed for two nights over Easter and were really surprised with the high standard of the hotel, restaurant and spa. We had a fantastic value half board offer and the hotel went above and beyond our expectations. We had beautiful views onto the golf course, excellent food and a comfortable stay.

I took my other half here for his birthday. I paid for the Bacchanalian Feast package - 2 nights b&b, plus 2 3-course meals, one with wine pairing. The stay was lovely and relaxing, staff very friendly and even gave my other half a birthday card which was a nice touch. The beds are slightly hard but rooms are comfortable....

I stayed for just one night but the experience was memorable and would definitely go back. Ticks all the boxes for comfort and cleanliness and the service was excellent.

We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of April on the Bacchanalian Feast package which was excellent. The food in the restaurant is superb and the accompanying wines with it were well chosen by the sommelier. The bedrooms are large and spotlessly clean and it's a pleasant change to have a large bathroom with a separate bath and a...

This is the 4th time we have stayed at this hotel and what a great weekend we had. Golf in the morning, racing at Newbury in the afternoon topped off with dinner in the hotel - Food was better than previous. The rooms are spacious and quiet and the spa is just perfect for lazing around on Sunday morning. Excellent.

With such a nice hotel, and such friendly staff; it was so disappointing to receive such inedible food! I wish it had just been me that was disappointed, but even the meat eaters at my table couldn't stomach the food. Would still happily come back, but will be eating elsewhere.
