Disappointing stay
Wanted a short break and a massage in the spa only to be told they were fully booked! No air conditioning in the room

Hot and Cold!
Sent from my iPhone Begin forwarded message: Strengths: Excellent room Food and wine excellent Beautiful gardens Good amenities- pool, sauna, hot tub Elemis toiletries Mo, Nick and Farrel bar staff Not good: Poor welcome and leaving: impersonal, uninterested, wrong information. No ‘hope you enjoyed your stay, see you again etc….’ This reflected the whole stay- individual elements excellent but overall ambience cold, unwelcoming and impersonal. Additionally, we were made to feel odd because we didn’t want a 4 course meal and therefore weren’t allowed to eat in the Dining room ! We were banished to the cold, empty Conservatory where we huddled by a radiator. The 3 staff mentioned above were brilliant but what a ridiculous and excluding rule - only being allowed into the Dining room if you were willing to eat the full wack- in an age of obesity and dealing with older clients, should they not cater for smaller appetites? We were humiliated and embarrassed- and got extremely cold. When we told the manageress the next day, there was no apology or even sympathy. Not interested. It was also my birthday ( which they knew). We always go away for our birthdays and the chefs invariably do a little flourish or something to acknowledge the occasion- not here. Again totally uninterested. We will not come here again- despite its strengths, the ambience is cold and cheerless. Very different from previous ownership. Shame.

A fun and relaxing break
Overall we had a brilliant time; we made good use of all the facilities and were well looked after. Covid precautions were strong but we were relaxed and comfortable.

6/10 Good

The food in the evening was great, breakfast a bit lack of choices (might be due to Covid-19). We stayed in the hotel 4 nights and it was at after the 3rd night they would swop towels, make the beds etc. Understandable this is due to covid-19, but then paying £200 per night is bit stiff.
