Stayed one night. Rooms clean and functional and the view from the room and outdoor area in front of the room lovely. We didn’t have breakfast there but the breakfast room and guest lounge had a great view. I thought the price ( booked direct on hotel website) was very reasonable.

The motel-style accommodation is great; a large, comfortable split-level space with plenty of storage and an outside area for sitting in nice weather. The shower in the bath has plenty of power, although no shower gel is provided (only soap, shampoo and conditioner). I was grateful that an anti-slip mat had been provided. Breakfast in the garden conservatory was well spaced out and the full English breakfast was enormous.

After 10 years of visiting Briars for 3-4 nights, in a large group of 12, we were very disappointed by the attitude of the new owners. As always the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable and we love sitting outside in the beautiful gardens and enjoying an evening drink. However when we checked in we were charged an extra $20 per room to separate the beds into singles, and when we queried this, as it wasn't on our confirmation email, we were told "oh she forgot to include it, but she doesn't work here anymore". We also advised them several of the outside chairs had broken webbing and were dangerous to sit on. We were told they would be replaced immediately, but they weren't, plus several of the bar fridges had no doors on the freezers, so were totally iced up and we couldn't get ice blocks and they were noisily churning over 24/7. Apart from the $20 extra charge, which they refused to refund, these are only minor things that could have been fixed quickly but added to an air of disinterest that wasn't there on our previous visits. We will probably look elsewhere next year.

We spent two nights at the Briars Country Lodge and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Our room had a great view of the lake. The room was spotlessly clean, great comfortable beds. A lounge to sit on and table and chairs outside. Very quiet at night. No noise from other rooms. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and efficient.

Great stay to chill out just out of town. Lovely garden view from our room, beautiful green rolling grass looking onto the lake. Plenty of gorgeous large trees for a picnic or wine with friends or family! Tennis courts if you fancy a hit as well...As far as the room it was modern, clean, had a split level which was nice for the three friends travelling together, bed was on upper level and pull from second level few steps down. Bathroom was roomy included a bath with overhead shower. Only suggestion would be a few more forks and knives should be made available, but sure they would have assisted if asked as staff were friendly. Would come again.
