We were a big party of friends and work colleagues, about 30. Would be easy to get to a five star ���� if they wanted. Gym has far too much stuff in, no reasonable space for floor work, although there are a few light weight dumbells to use. The weight machines are not safe to use while people are walking past, and they do. I. E. The lat pull down machine. Nice pool, clean changing facilities. Hotel clean, bar prices reasonable for a hotel, no where near the prices of five lakes just down the road. Food and bar service excellent, well done f & b staff. Caviat, some of us that had fish n chips were with a dodgy tummy afterwards. They had put the time as 9 for the key card to run out, so we had problems collecting bags after breakfast. Collapse
