Purely functional hotel with little charm. Entrance and dining room nicely decorated and modern. Check in and out was simple and easy. Room was large but disappointing with stained carpets and paint dropping off the ceiling. Breakfast was full english and was OK.
We arrived and were very happy with our room it looked comfortable enough and had the bonus of a stunning view across the lake. The room had a welcome fridge. It advertised free internet in the rooms don't be caught as the connection is for a dial up which went out with the ark. The internet is available on the telly for £5 per hour. So this was very disappointing. They were a bit mean on the extras, like 1 teabag, 1 biscuit, 1 hot choc, when they were filled up it was only with green tea so take teabags with you, the chamber maids don't understand a lot of english so they can't tell the difference. We stayed in one night for a meal and i have to say it was very good, they have a proper chef who cooks from scratch, not freezer microwave plate like most places. The grounds and the rest of the buildings were very disappointing as they were very run down, even gutted in places, balconies held up with acro props so not very encouraging. Asked if the place was being done up and the lady at the desk didn't know but seemed to be programmed to say very little. Seeing the disrepair of the place it made us very nervous to go out on to our balcony as we could see the wood there was rotten in places. This is such a shame as it could be a stunning hotel but it needs a lot of money spending on it. If they turned the lights out on rooms that were gutted they may save a little money and start doing much needed repairs. Would like to go back next year but i fear it will not be open.
Found the hotel lovely, room clean and comfortable, staff helpful. We where visiting family so didn't have time to see or use hotel facilities so can't really comment on them. But hopefully we will be back and can try them next time.
"Lovely hotel, lots of activities and great surroun"
Lovely hotel, the perfect size, cosy and clean. Although we were a little disappointed to find out we were not staying in the mansion house. All but one of the pictures on Expedia's site are of the mansion house or of the surroundings so that's where we were expecting to stay, however at check in we were told we were in the executive suite instead. This however wasn't a problem, just a little disappointing at first.
There is lots to do within the park if you are sporty - crazy golf, swimming, golf and lots of activities run by Unique Outdoors. We did the wall climbing and archery which was great fun and would definitely recommend. Fortunately it was a quiet afternoon so we didn't have to take it in turns at the archery and got a lot of shooting in - all round a good stay.

Great location, as you are located right in the centre of the town, with a 5 minute walk to the train/bus station. The hotel itself while a bit basic, was clean and tidy and a decent price. While the shower in my room was poor, this one con was made up for by the staff who were outstanding; friendly, helpful and understanding.
The staff couldn't do enough for my partner and i last weekend during our stay for his 40th birthday. We can't wait to come back in the Autumn when the view will be even more spectacular. Next time we will make sure we book to have dinner in the restaurant too. The best hotel I have ever stayed in, in Enlgand.
