Great communication during the booking process, exceptionally clean, wonderful location and grounds. Exceptionally easy process to book in after hours due to really good communication. Room was soooo clean and the grounds feel private and serene. Amenities good - loved our stay.

My wife booked a room for the 27/6/20 and we wished we did not! Should have known there was some dishonesty when my wife asked a question 5 days prior to us arriving and they answered when we could not cancel the room. We tried to have dinner but were put into a room with no one else in there, no table cloths, no music just us and they refused to let us into the dining room saying the group in there wanted to be alone but it was ok for us to stay in a substandard conference room. Our dinner all came out at once main, sweet and was told that was they way it had to be served it was like we were in a retirement home or worse it was disgraceful. The whole facility is in need of an upgrade and the service was so disappointing. This was meant to be a pleasant getaway because I only just had to got out of hospital and did not want to travel. They simply made it a disappointing experience and as such we will not only not go back to the place but will warn others not to go! Thank you for ruining our visit, we are disgusted.

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback. We're very sorry that your expectations were not met during your stay. We have only recently reopened to the public and are currently trying to get back into the swing of things. However, that does not excuse your poor treatment. We will be addressing this with our staff this week so that future guests don't have the same experience. Thank you again for leaving a review. While we wish that you had a better experience, it's feedback like this that helps us to improve. Foothills Team

The front of house staff (all three of them) were rushed off their feet when we and another couple checked in. It was the 'flat out' according to one staff member. And it only got worse. As more people arrived to check in. They became more flustered and forgot about customers. When we eventually checked in 30 minutes after our first attempt and got to our room we discovered someone else had been issued the same. Rooms are good. Clean and Spacious. House Keeping are very helpful. The front of house staff require more training.

I stayed here last weekend with my partner to attend a wedding. the room was nice enough though I wouldn't call it luxury... I booked a deluxe king room seemed like any other standard king room to me. the most uncomfortable pillows iv ever had to try and sleep on... pre organised for an extra bed for the last night of our stay and reminded them about it when I checked in... get back after the wedding and hmmm no bed... wen mentioned to them at check out said "oh it's wasn't there why didn't you call reception." um maybe because I was out all day and night got back at 1am... they did refund me for the extra bed but was still very very disappointed.
