Very nice facilities.

Posted 21-Aug-2016
Pros: The hotel has a wonderful area with pool, fitness and spa. The rooms are very spacious and confortable.
Cons: The meals are not so good in the breakfast and in the Pub. The menu could be more variable with more diversity of food.
Location: The hotel has a Golf Couse and there are lots of places to visit nearby but a car is necessary.
We staied 4 nights with family in two rooms and we had nice times at the pool, fitness and Spa area.

Why the Plastic "glasses"?

Posted 12-Aug-2016
Pros: Almost everything
Cons: would be good if they could do a Tuna Steak "Rare" as requested rather than well done. Glasses in bathroom please, not plastic ones!
Location: No idea really, use this hotel as convenient for my office
Really nice hotel (although would be good if they could do a Tuna Steak "Rare" as requested rather than well done) Biggest bugbear about this hotel is why they insist on flimsy plastic "glasses" in the bathroom - every other 4/5* hotel I have stayed in have proper glass ones. It's a small complaint and generally the hotel is very good. Excellent gym facilities too.

Good Golf

A popular and busy hotel but everything to hand. The dining room struggled when I was there and it needed more staff and more alert staff. But the food was good.

Our Special Night Away at The Old Thorns

Posted 03-May-2016 on Hotels
We had a lovely stay here, and couldn't fault it at all! Our room was spacious and the bed was huge! The hotel and rooms were very tidy and clean, the grounds were beautiful, lots to explore, and extremely well kept! Staff were very friendly and helpful, the spa and gym were both fantastic! The only small niggle i would suggest was maybe putting all wedding guests/big parties together in one area of the hotel as we heard lots of noise going past our room at night (due to the wedding going on here) but it wasn't a huge problem. We had chilled prosecco and chocs on arrival as requested due to us celebrating my partners anniversary of a brain tumor removal and our stay was made very special at this hotel and we had a great time celebrating! The champagne/cocktail bar was outstanding! Cocktails were amazing, the staff were extremely friendly and attentive, and we had a lovely evening in here. Breakfast was fab! Lots to choose from well presented and a great atmosphere. Check in/Check out was quick and easy, we had a wander around the hotel to find out where everything was and were very impressed! We had food in the sports bar in the evening which was yummy and a great atmosphere, again couldn't fault it! Thank you for such a great stay we wouldnt hesitate to come back here and will be recommending The Old Thorns to all our family and friends! :)

Lovely place with fantastic team !

The hotel is great. Faultless I would even say. But probably the best part is the staff, very helpful and efficient. Food is great in all restaurants, rooms are big,clean and comfortable and the grounds are beautiful and well kept with lots of parking. We stayed at the hotel for the second time, this time it was our wedding we decided to have there and everything was perfect. we can't thank the team enough to make everything happen as we wanted or even better!Special thank you goes to Tiffany, Eve, Justyna, Diane , Jane, Mitch & Joanna.

The hotel reception were excellent, The food was great, selection at breakfast was excellent. The gym, pool were of a great standard. Wifi in the room was very good, only one drawback was the pillows, they were either flat or hard, but I'm sure if we had of said something they would of changed them, nothing seemed to be a problem for all the staff at the hotel. Would most definitely stay again, I am booked in for a long weekend in July for a friends wedding.
