Poor 2.0
We had an evening meal and breakfast. I complained about both. I was promised an email from the manager. I am still waiting.

Reflection Stay!
The hotel is in a great location; the rooms are very comfortable and the service first class. We were a little disappointed in the standard of the evening meals and the limited choices. Breakfast was cooked to order as well as a buffet, and this was great.

Exceptional 10.0
Fabulous hotel and staff
Fabulous stay. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by Sarah who welcomed us and gave us a tour of the hotel, and then showed us to our room which was a free upgrade on our original booking. Really nice touch. Breakfast was brilliant, lots of choice. Great service from everyone and very polite. The hotel itself was very clean and gave off a relaxing atmosphere. Outstanding stay and would definitely stay again. Stefano on check out was extremely helpful and along with Sarah really finished off what was an outstanding stay. Very very pleased with everything.
Peter, gb2 night trip
Good 6.0
A 4 star hotel which can't feed its guests and sends them down the road to a pub for a meal does not seem very 4 star to me! Such a shame, room was lovely, setting was great, breakfast was excellent but after driving for 7 hours, being told you have to get back in the car to get something to eat just made it all very unsatisfactory!
