We were spoilt for choice when it came to food and drinks. The facilities are neat although the bed had a bad mattress.

The conference venue was perfect for our retreat. I cannot wait to go back there for another retreat and some extra relaxing time.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled with friends

We stayed for 2 nights as private, international, guests at a time when the hotel was hosting a residential conference and a one-day meeting.
On our first evening it was suggested that we should dine from the conference buffet instead of the normal a la carte menu, although that was changed at our request.
The restaurant and bar areas of the hotel are taken over for conference coffee and lunch breaks. In general we felt that the conference business took priority and we were an inconvenience.
On the positive side, some of the staff were helpful, the room was fine and the hotel grounds are pleasant.
On our final morning, after we had been rushed through breakfast, we struggled to find a member of staff to check us out. The Internet connection was so poor that the card machine would not work, and the staff seemed to have no understanding that this was a problem she should resolve.
In summary, if the Manderson wants to attract private sector guests it needs to look after them better. We will not go back.

What a gem we found. Clean, well kept, wonderful staff and service. The food and atmosphere was great. We will be back. Lovely pool. The gardens are lush and we had such a pleasant stay. Very affordable and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Family room nice
