    Staff were really friendly - provided colour pens and paper for the kids. We stayed just as the hotel was about to go through a major refurbishment. Our initial rooms was awful, we complained and were pretty much immediately upgraded where they had space. Pool was fab as was the jacuzzi. Breakfast was fab and I loved the areas which had been refurnished already. It’s only 100-200 meters from the town and has loads of parking. Look forward to seeing when it is completed, bet it will be amazing.

    Just the areas that needed refurbishment- but they will be gone when we return in end 2020.

    Good selection at breakfast, catered for everyone. The Bar man couldn't do enough for you he was very sociable.

    The bathroom in the first room we were put in was ridiculously small, couldn't even sit down on the toilet. Shouldn't really be sold as a room. But the staff were more than helpful and moved us straight away

    We arrived early to the property but didn’t have to wait, the receptionist said our room was ready and that we’d been awarded an upgrade - which was amazing! Our room was incredible - it over looked the lake, had a huge free-standing bath and very spacious bedroom. We were visiting for a walking holiday so didn’t use the other facilities so can’t comment on those.

    Some parts of the hotel are very dated. The toilets on the ground floor are very old fashioned and tired. Other than that. We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed!
