Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Room was lovely and spacious. King size bed very comfortable. Breakfast a huge disappointment for a 4 star hotel. Limited choice. Poor service. For a hotel of this calibre would expect better quality. I know we are going through a pandemic but have stayed in other 4 star hotels during this period and have experienced much better quality and service. Previously have dined at this hotel and had no complaints, good food. However, they are letting themselves down with their breakfast. Feel I could have purchased similar at a local cafe for £5 and enjoyed it more so!

Great hotel, but very much geared towards Weddings
Easy check in, very good service, and great room. Bar was taken over by a wedding, as was the restaurant, so that was a negative. Very much a wedding Hotel. Jeep that in mind. No gluten free effort made whatsoever in the bistro. That was a disappointment.
