Posted 03-Nov-2014

Location: in the country but close to tourist attractions such as alton towers and the heights of abraham
Booked night before through expedia very pleasantly surprised. Good value breakfast as much as you can eat. Very friendly staff. Only downside was the cleanliness of the room in particular the bathroom but for one night wasnt worth complaining

Pleasant hotel

Posted 03-Nov-2014
Pros: lovely character
Location: lovely surroundings
the hotel was nice, however we weren't given much information prior to our stay, for example we weren't aware of the free activities such as the use of the pool and gym. The pool was a communal pool, and swimming lessons were being given to children which was not very relaxing. The room was not what I expected I had paid extra for a deluxe king room and it was not the room that I thought I was getting.

Clean, comfy and spacious hotel.

Posted 01-Oct-2014
Pros: the views were amazing and the cleaniness and the express checkout service - very handy.
Cons: It would have been nice to have had a fridge in our room.
Location: Hghly recommend the McArthur Glenn Shopping Centre in Darby.
Recently stayed here to celebrate my partners birthday. The room was clean, charmingly decorated and very spacious, and the views over the golf course were stunning. The staff were very accomodating and they took it upon themselves to kindly leave a birthday gift in our room, which was lovely. The bed was absolutely huge and extremely comfy and my partner rated the spa/spa staff highly. We didn't eat at the hotel, so cannot comment there, but overall our stay was fabulous and I would definately recommend it to friends and family. Thank you, Laura and Andrew.

Posted 15-Sep-2014
Pros: Location/Grounds. General accommodation was appealing.
Cons: See comments above.

Disappointed. Noisy guests partying at 2:30 AM was a problem. Bed Pillows too soft. Noisy automatic front door opening disturbing.

Nice Relaxing Time

Posted 28-Aug-2014
Pros: Staff is really co-operative and warm welcoming
Location: Nice countryside greenery.. good for a walk and jog
Perfect place for weekend break. We enjoyed bank holiday weekend... the plus point about this location is if the weather is nice you would be laughing and even if weather isn't good, you still got plenty of things to do within the hotel.

Slow service, dated & small rooms. Over priced.

Posted 26-Aug-2014
Stayed August 2014 as couple. This hotel is not as advertised - our room was nowhere nr the priory, but a concrete building out back, facing car park. It was dated, small and the sink tap flowed brown water. The bed was really comfy though - it's only saving grace! The staff are few, and service is slow. They've clearly taken on too many wedding bookings at other guests expense. Staff are mostly friendly once you get hold of one! Lovely grounds, gardens pretty but room service food is poor quality. Restaurant food better. Overall, not a great stay. Would not recommend and wouldn't stay again.

overall can't complain.

Posted 07-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
Stunning hotel and lovely little village near by. Most of the staff were very helpful and friendly. My only two points to point out. Nearest cash machine is a few miles away although the hotel accepts credit and debit cards a cash machine would have been helpful. My hotel room. View and room in general can't and won't complain just one thing I weren't too impressed with the toilet looked like someone had been sick and it had not been cleaned up. It took a few flushes of the toilet to get rid but just some of the attention to detail. Other than them two minor details amazing experience. Pleasantly surprised at the price of the bar too. Definitely recommend.

Relaxing break

Posted 06-Jul-2014
1 night stay in July. Room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Staff polite and attentive. Lovely meal in Priory restaurant followed by coffee and drinks in the lounge. Beautiful grounds, hotel well maintained. There was a wedding and a golf group in the same evening as us, but this did not disturb our romantic getaway as functions and groups were hosted well away from the main restaurant / lounge and our room in the old farmhouse, would definitely recommend the hotel and hope to return ourselves

not quite there

Posted 30-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
very nice hotel. Good facilities. easily 5* - The bad. Tiny meal portions for evening meal. I dont expect to leave a £50 3 course meal hungry. Charging for internet is poor. Even Holiday Inn give that for free - £6 an hour is ridiculous. And the only real ale in the tempo bar was badly kept and served too cold. - wouldnt return. better nearby for the money
