Hotel is close to Stanstead airport, but in a quiet location. Used the hotel after Friday evening flight was cancelled and I had to stay over until another flight was available on the Saturday morning. It allowed maximum time to rest prior to early morning departure.
Due to early start it was not possible to have breakfast at the hotel, but as it was booked via booking.com it was not possible to revide booking to room only!
The gym and sauna, the grounds
What’s there not to like?!
Beds were comfy. Staff were excellent
Room was very warm but the hotel are trying to deal with it
Breakfast was very busy as there was a wedding party, food ran out and wasn't refilled very quickly. Warm night and needed to keep the window open-could hear the hum of external machinery.
Property on amazing grounds Some staff were very helpful and polite food really nice if a little pricey
A lot of the staff seemed rude and in serious need of training ie on arrival we ordered some drinks glass of wine and 1 cider took over half hour for drinks to arrive !! From then on our party always seemed to be less important than all the wedding parties they had whilst we stayed , three I counted in total !! Be a hotel that has weddings over a busy wknd but you also need to look after your residents ?? Also our room had a beeping noise either inside or outside the room , told reception on the 2nd morning of our stay and was told someone would be up to have a look and get back to us !! No one did !! For somewhere charging a lot of money per room and being a very popular wedding venue I would of expected a higher drilled team of waiters / waitresses but afraid to say a lot were incompetent of often raising a smile let alone getting an order correct and within an acceptable time frame , yes you had weddings happening all wknd but most of the time they were in different rooms and being seen to !! I feel this hotel could be exceptional with the right people in place as the hotel itself is amazing unless this happens then we won’t be back in any rush to let down hall !!
