Our very good friends booked this hotel for my 60th birthday. We have driven past and thought what a beautiful building and it has a spa so it would be a great way l could go start to the birthday celebrations. The cost was £180per couple for dbb,not cheap especially as most of the things on the menu have an additional supplement charge which we were not aware of. The food was bland and i paid £10 extra for dry steak and cold chips. We had to ask for a wine list and the wine finally arrived half way through dinner. We finished with the cheese board,3nice pieces of cheese but only 3 crackers and 3 grapes. The spa which we were all looking forward to was as we were told a dry spa. Now spa to me usually involves a pool and a jacuzzi at least and that's why we booked the place. Maybe we should have checked but it certainly isn't clear on the website.The room was large and a comfy bed but carpet stained badly and only one large towel.long walk down spooky corridors, great location for a horror film. Nothing in the rooms to suggest luxury hotel. No gowns, slipper chocolate or biscuits on the bed, all of which are available at grinkle park hotel less than 10 miles away and much cheaper but we thought we would have a change. Never again.i could go on about other, problems but what is the point, we just wouldn't go back or recommend.

Dear Debbie M

Thank you for taking your time out and writing your valued feedback.

First of all Happy birthday!

I am so pleased to read that you appreciated our lovely setting. My team were then so disappointed to read that you found the bedroom rates high, for which I can only apologise. Please be assured we do compare our prices regularly with our competitors of the same standard and have found them to be priced competitively.

The team strive to achieve the highest standard and quality of food, bedrooms and service from the moment you arrive, which is why it was such a disappointment to hear that we got it so wrong in this instance, for which I must apologise sincerely. I have discussed your comments with the team, guest feedback is extremely important to us here, bringing to our attention areas in which we can further improve the services we offer.

I really do hope you will reconsider your decision and return, where we would love to prove this occasion was an exception to the rule.

Kindest regards,

Ruairidh Taylor
Hotel Manager

We had an excellent 2 day stay with a wedding party. However when we came to leave we were surprised that our room rate was charged at £135 PN when even the Hotel advertise in their rooms that the the PN room rate is £95? ...

So if you go with a wedding/group, DON'T assume you will get the best rate?
A great stay was spoilt !

Room Tip: Don't assume you will get the best rate, and don't book directly with the Hotel!

Dear John E,

I’m so pleased to read you had an excellent stay with a wedding party.

On occasion the hotel advertises special offers, reduced rate short breaks and last minute deals that are cheaper than the wedding rate. Guests are welcome to reserve rooms with these offers, however, they often require full pre-payment at the time of booking and these rates may not be available as far in advance as wedding guests book.

I hope you can see fit to join us again in the future,

Kindest regards,

Ruairidh Taylor
Hotel Manager

We stayed here to celebrate our engagement and had a wonderful time. The hall is beautiful and our room in the older part was big, very comfortable and very clean. The meal was fabulous and the staff were very kind. Breakfast was one of the best I've had in a hotel. Hope to return again! Very nice for a special occasion.
