I have just finished working on an event where we took over the whole hotel. I think it is the best hotel I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Every member of staff was incredible and I mean every single staff member. They were extremely helpful with no request to big. They are yes people and made a hard event seem easy. It was also great to see how much they enjoy working with each other and even during the most stressful moments their team work shone through. I hope to be lucky enough to be working on another event here.

The rooms were spectacular, and the tea room was very british; which I enjoyed coming from America. I loved the food they served in the tea room, and the breakfast buffet. I would give it five stars but when I went to take a shower, the hot water burned my back. I definitely recommend staying here if you like a quiet place away from the city, but if you don't like getting burnt, feel the water with your hands in the shower before you go in.

Amazing staff and a wonderful hotel not just for golfers! It was raining; they organised a buggy for us to ride to the cafe on the other side of the complex. Amazing gardens!! Highly recommend a visit! Cafe is open for non-members too but make sure you call before and reserve a table.

The restaurant was absolutely lovely. We had a lovely waitress who was really friendly and helpful. Food was amazing - lots of choices (especially for me as a vegetarian). Dessert counter was phenomenal. Quite pricey, but worth it.
