A one night stay at this place was one night too long ! Booked due to its location for a business meeting for me and a colleague. Check was tediously slow - mainly because the man on reception couldn't find the booking of the 3 gents checking in before us ! 20 mins later we checked in but my colleague...

We had booked through booking.com sadly and when we arrived, they couldn't find our booking. The man handling the booking treated us as if it was our fault. We were given a room which was adequate but not great as it was tatty and smelt awful. We kept the window open but unfortunately the smell didn't go away. The bed...

Have used this hotel for the last nine months. Not a bad place to stay, staff are great, sometimes take a little understanding. Rooms are basic but clean. Parking is ok and safe. Not bad for the money.

We visited this hotel with Strathmore Travel in May and if we hadn’t travelled with them before and known what their hotels are usually like, then we wouldn’t ever go back with them. The hotel bedroom was fine. Large space with desk, table and 2 chairs, plenty of drawer space and hanging area. Large bathroom with bath & shower with...

Attended a wedding at this hotel. Everything was well directed and set and it really is an awesome place as the grounds were well maintained. There was sufficient parking, lovely location and very scenic and peaceful. Good to stop here for drinks or food too.

I have stayed here quite a few times for business. Have to say that not all the beds are great but the rooms are clean and well looked after. Most of that staff are welcoming and attentive. Good parking and easy to get to.

I recently visited the Watermill Hotel for a wedding. Not only was the venue stunning with a lot of greenery and water running through the hotel, but the staff were so hospitable and bent over backwards to make sure our needs were accommodated for. I have to give Plosca Petrut Daniel a personal mention because while waiting for a taxi,...

This was a lovely experience. We have been before and I have to say this tea is consistently good. The staff are lovely and the food and the service was first class.
