Great find

Liked: The property was just perfect for our stay .The staff were all exceptional, attentive & very helpful.The room was tastefully decorated, great shower & good products.The breakfast was the best I?ve had whilst staying in hotels , great choice and the portion size very generous.An added bonus for me was the electric charging points for my car

Pleasant

Liked: The restaurant was definitely the highlight of our stay great food and drinks.
Disliked: The rooms could have been cleaner and in better condition.Payment is taken a few days prior to your date booked.They then reduced the room rate!.....so I?d advise booking last minute as you get a better room and rate

Overpriced

Liked: The room was recently decorated, loved the decor. However simply did not justify the cost of 350
Disliked: The room still had a strong paint smell and out of the hot tub jets only 1 of these worked. The lights did not work, and it?s not very private.

Lovely stay

Liked: We booked a hot tub suite room that?s wasn?t recently refurbished. Altho nice it was a little tired, then the hot tub jets didn?t work, which wasn?t ideal but luckily ones of the newly refurbished suites was available so we got moved (thank you) Wow so much nicer, my advice pay the extra 60 for that standard room it?s beautiful. The food and cocktails were amazing!
Disliked: Service at times a little slow, but very friendly

Poor

Liked: Good location
Disliked: The room I booked was not what we got. I booked a suite with hot tub and we got a small dark pokey room with a hot tub. The description of the room I booked had a lounge seating area but our room had a SMALL table and only 1 chair. I also booked a room with a bath but there wasn't one. No wardrobes as manager said they took yhe wardrobes out of the LUXURY room as people only stay 1 or 2 night so obviously that means you don't need to hang up your clothes. ?There is only a small shaving mirror in the room, nothing big enough to do your hair or make at.The room itself was very dark as not much lights natural or otherwise.. bathroom window couldn't shut hence lots of insects flying in. This is not luxury in my opinion.Manager Louis was not interested in listening to my complaints. He implied I should be lucky as they upgraded my stay but I feel cheated as what I booked was so much better than what I got. Its is very expensive but this was a special treat which we were so looking forward to and felt so let down. We did not even get a proper checkin, we had to ask for the key to our room and was given no other information on what to expect from our stay. Had to ask about times for breakfast and where we needed to go for it. Breakfast was a shambles as the dippy eggs were half cooked but once again the manger said that's the way they do it. Asked for marmalade and was told there was none. At dinner the night before asked for Cranberry sauce with roast chicken and was told that's only for Xmas. For a 4star establishment, we got 1 star service. Having worked in proper 5 star hotels in London, the service was appalling. Would definitely not recommend especially with the current manager in charge.
