Had a lovely 2 night DB&B break here last week in a deluxe bedroom. After reading some of the recent awful reviews I was feeling apprehensive about our ‘romantic’ break, however, they were well and truly wrong. The hotel was clean, warm and welcoming. Our room was spotless as was the bed, bedding and towels. The breakfast was hot and plentiful and our evening dinners were perfect. Service throughout the hotel was excellent- efficient and friendly staff. Thank you to the staff that made my partners birthday a little bit more special. Collapse

Stayed for 2 nights DBB. Room was all we could have wished for, clean, very warm and cosy. Food was amazing. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Parties were on, but we never heard a thing, and it certainly did not affect our lovely stay. Beautiful situation by the river and lots of walks nearby. Highly recommend. Collapse

This was a free evening as a PR exercise with local businesses. Overall it was a good night out with free food and drink but the service needs to be refined somewhat. Food was brought out according to what it was rather than what the whole table had ordered so that one person had her meal, then a couple of others were served their dish etc. there also seemed to be quite a lot of surplus as waiting staff were seen heading back to the kitchen with untouched dishes. But it was a fun evening and a lovely venue. Thank you for putting it on. Collapse
Understaffed and complaining falls on deaf ears.

Nice room , clean and cozy. Stayed for 2 nights DBB in October 15th. Hotel lounge and Bar area severely understaffed and having to wait for over 10 minutes each time you wanted a drink as the bar staff struggling to serve drinks for waiter staff serving restaurant and bar guests.. Wedding guests also using bar area despite wedding being in Tent outside , spoke to some wedding guests who said they were in for a heat as wedding venue was cold, this resulted in mass queuing again for drinks. Due to Queuing at bar went to room and phoned reception for drinks and they said phone the lounge bar which we did but no answer, I then went back down for drinks and witnessed the bar phone ringing but not being answered, not answering this phone is normal as they are too busy and understaffed.Served a warm bottle of beer on Saturday at lunch time and when I informed him it was warm the foreign barman informed me they had just started their shift and had just filled the fridges ? Told him to change it and informed him I am only paying for second beer. Service in restaurant was chaotic on both nights, meal orders taken and food brought to table and still no drinks had arrived since we ordered them as we sat down. First night food was Luke warm second night we paid extra supplement for the steak and home made chunky chips, what I got was an over cooked steak full of tendons and vein and frozen skinny French fries which I returned. Severely understaffed and no manager sorting the shambles out. Complaints must be common as complaints were just met with sighs and we are sorry but nobody rectifying the situations.. Breakfast is okay, buffet style, nothing great and again every time a waitress comes near a table everyone is requesting her assistance as they are short staffed. Finally had enough of the place and asked to speak to manager , duty manager looked no older than early 20s and he listened to what’s I had to say and I was informed there would be deduction taken from my bill for meals and poor service , When I checked out on Sunday morning there was no reduction on my bill and girl knew nothing of agreement from duty manager, we just paid full amount £700 ish and left . Actually drove down the road feeling robbed and cheated by this Hotel. Emailed contact email on website asking for return email regarding such a poor weekends service on all aspects and I am still waiting on the reply email.. Worst hotel I have used in years and all the basics they get so wrong, never once made to feel relaxed and welcome. First time I have written report as Hotel was so bad , sorry for delay but been travelling and work abroad. Regards JL Collapse

Booked a two night DB&B deal for family. Lovely welcome - offered a drink - nothing for the teenagers though. Room wasn't ready despite being after the checkin time. Used the pool both days - grounds are lovely . Dinner on both nights good - although the menu was the same both nights. (and it wasn't a big menu) Perhaps alternating menus over 2 days would help? Service at dinner was good and attentive. Breakfast disappointing - service poor, order poached eggs - chased twice, eventually arrived 30 mins later - everyone else had had their breakfast. The buffet was poor - food running out. Need to look at this. Room was very good - looked out toward the front of hotel. Collapse
