    Fabulous 8.8 From 51 reviews

    Poor 2.0
    Major letdown due to certain staff members
    Trip ruined by the incompetence and rudeness of certain staff members. Check-in only available at 4 pm without even an apology. Then had an unknown man enter the bedroom where my baby daughter was sleeping as the front desk had mixed up the rooms, rather than an apology the duty manager accused us of being in the wrong room! Further, a leaking AC with a strong dripping sound throughout the night was an additional bonus.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Loved our stay.
    Lovely one night stay. Staff attentive and polite. Food was amazing. Only downside was a toilet that struggled to flush!
    Stephanie, gb1 night romance trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    Perfect night away!
    So lovely. Friendly staff, our every need was catered for. The room and the grounds were beautiful. We will definitely be back, hopefully for longer next time!
    Katie, gb1 night romance trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    Beautiful hotel, amazing food, spacious and very clean room. We were blown away by the service and looking forward to staying again soon.
    ihab, gb2 night romance trip
    Poor 2.0
    Not a pleasant or relaxing stop.
    Not a pleasant stay. Room 145, situated right against the corridor to the function room below. Underneath is the golf buggy car park (with hospitality service taking guests to and from the restaurant until late) woken at 5:10am as a cleaner hoovered 2 floors of concrete steps by whacking it side to side from top to bottom. Sauna out of order, receptionist clueless. I really hate whinging, and the above doesn’t detract from the nice facility in general. But typical of a large poorly managed hotel, whereby the cost of staff hourly rates is more important than training.
    Dan, gb1 night business trip
    Good 6.0
    Bang average for the money
    The hotel stay cost us £800 for one night for a family room. For that price it should be exceptional And it’s not - it’s ok. The staff are very good to be fair but condition of the hotel could be better. Breakfast is not great - average buffet set up. Our biggest objection is that the lovely spa is not open at all to families with children below the age of 12 at any time. I can’t think of any other situation where age related discrimination would be tolerated in any public place. We get that badly behaved children - Or people of any age - could be asked to leave, but the rule is just crass. Families are asked to use a small/sub standard pool a long walk from the main hotel

    Exceptional 10.0
    Service was very high for the UK.
    Robert, us2 night family trip
    Very good 8.0
    Stay at the Grove
    The room was very good and the breakfast also.The reception was friendly and welcoming. I did not have the chance to use the hotel's facilities as I was attending a function at another location.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Birthday treat
    A lovely experience for my birthday, relaxing spa, comfortable room and a lovely meal, more than I could eat!

    Highly recommended jewel
    An amazing place to stay. Exceptional service at dinner from Bernice (Colette's Restaurant) and an amazing service from Roxana at the Spa. Highly recommended place
