Great Stay - would go again
The hotel is lovely. Everything is modern, clean and tidy. The room we had was actually an accessible room which was huge. Modern room and bathroom. The room also had a tablet on the wall to control music for the room and bathroom, really nice feature. All modern lighting. Even the bedside table had wireless chargers built in. I was impressed. The main bar area is smart with plenty of drink to choose from including up to 8 different draught lager. Our only let down was a meal in the Orangery. The steak which wasn't cheap we both ordered. We sent both back as inedible. It is a different kitchen to the main restaurant. I'd recommend eating in the main restaurant. However they did not charge us for the two meals. Lovely lake views. Would stay again.
