The way hotel manage my booking was very terrible. My 2nd booking was kicked out by untrue reason and hotel charged me double price. I was cheated moreover the 2nd night really bad I paid very expensive but the room was so small. Bad hotel and impolite staffs.
It was awful view with awful bed. No elevator to the second floor. We had 4 suitcases... Not clean...for more than £400 a night, it’s impossible! Amenities were not supplied properly and the toilet bin was not emptied.
Everything but the concierge.
Nice vegetarian breakfast Room service food disappointing - returned
Room service food
Spacious; lot of golf memorabilia; staff went out of the way to make you welcome. Coffee machine; heated towels; stand-alone shower - not in the bath!!
Bed too short.
Great location with car park. Bed was very comfortable.
Carpets in room & public areas looking tired, could do with some modernising.
