Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Had to cancel one night due to work commitments as we are both key workers, this was agreed by both Expedia and the Hotel, when we arrived there were no rooms available and we had to go to a sister hotel which was diabolical, the room was tiny, the bed was the size of a postage stamp, only one pillow and the most uncomfortable bed I’ve ever slept in, every time you turned over I’m the night the whole bed shock and moved away from the wall. The breakfast was freezing cold and of poor quality. Our view was a skip. Poorly designed room, old and needs knocking through and updating! Terrible communications with the booking/reservation team not letting anyone know of our change! WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE!!!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The staff were wonderful and the location very convenient. Has a look of a tired American model from the ourside and the layout is similar inside, however there's nothing much the owners can do about a dated exterior desgin and what they have done is very good. The rooms are nicely decorated with a lovely bathroom and the corridors are pleasant with good quality carpets. All the staff without expection were lovely, and always smiled at you. The only read downside was breakfast, which actually was one of the nicest breakfasts I've ever had in a hotel for the quality of food (no fat on the bacon, tasty sausages etc), the only problem it was stone cold, not just luke warm, it was so cold it could have just come out of the fridge. I assume they need to invest in some new heaters to keep the food warm! All in all a not visually spectacular hotel made up for with good maintainance, good housekeeping and wonderful staff

The view over the lake was lovely. The staff were outstanding - helpful, friendly, courteous even when stretched. However, one girl on the reception team needs to be better trained so that she knows communication is paramount with the guests. We had to ask about two things, no soap at the sink and safe instructions that were incorrect. She never came back to us, although the duty manager did about the safe - eventually.
