Our experience was great.
The reviews of this property were not great. I was a bit concerned, especially about the restaurant. It was great, the restaurant was especially good. I had the eye fillet and it was very well cooked and well presented. My wife had the lamb and that was perfect as well. The starters were also very good. They had a nice cosy little bar to watch the rugby. I don’t normally review, but thought I should for this place as it deserved some good words.

Absolutely loved staying here..we got a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the lake and it was beautiful..the spa bath is incredible..spent alot of time in there!! The bed was so comfy and big..and the lil sliding window between the bedroom and lounge meant you can lay in bed watching tv which was perfect!! Room service food was really really good..and the staff were super friendly..and the shower was AMAZING!! Would DEFINITELY stay here again..and recommend it to everyone!! Just wish the spa treatments were included in the room charge and that you didnt have to pay extra!!😉

Staff was friendly. Room was clean and tidy. Location was a bit far out from the city centre walking wise, but we had our car. Overall, a pleasant stay - would consider staying again.
