Our friends had their wedding here at the beginning of August, so we booked a room to save traveling. The wedding was fantastic, the day was seamless and everyone had a great time. The room was a fair size, the bathroom was a little dated. We couldn't find the mini bar for the life of us! We were woken up... More

(4.50 a day/ 9.00 for 2 days) check in nice and easy (no lift) so those with mobility issues please call ahead to ensure you have... More

Stayed one night - despite it being busy in the country park we parked in pay and display easily. Room comfy buildings dated. Restaurant basic pub food not brilliant and service for desserts took ages. If you have allergens evening menu clear for these but nothing clearly marked in menu for breakfast

Room was lovely and although we was not facing the lake we did have a balcony and being really hot it came in useful to have door open however they might want to invest in table and chairs for the balconies so u can actually sit and relax on it. Breakfast was horrible. Stale bread. Pre cooked bacon and sausages.... More

An upgrade created noise however we had some other inconvenience. Our first room had no air con so week were moved. Next room had electrical issues. We were then moved to new refurbished room. This was good however a bit stressful overall.
