Needs a facelift
On first impressions,it looked nice, but on seeing our room things soon changed. Room was nothing like the photo on the website,ours was very small, and the shower was boiling hot and took ages to sort out the right temperature. The sandwiches we had were nice, but on eating a hard bit of sausage one of my caps came off my tooth. Was woken up early in the morning by someone shouting at their dog in the hotel grounds. When we went for breakfast, the butter was rock hard, I had to use my lighter to melt it!! Finally,as we were going to the racecourse for our evening out we noticed that it was 12 miles away instead of the 8 miles it says on the website,if we had known this we wouldn't of stayed there. Not worth the£80.50 we had to pay.

Give a miss.
I was told I had the posh room. Would hate to see the others. There were dead bugs all over windowsill and a few on the bed too. I inspected materes and was ok, did find quite a few long black hairs on pillows. The bathroom floor was disgusting the toilet base looked like it had excrement around it. Would not stay again.
