Location! Location! Location!

This bespoke friendly oasis has an ambience that calms and refreshes weary folks.

The staff made folks feel like friends rather than passing strangers. In the lounge the sumptuous sofas and chairs swallow you up as you watch the golfers in the distance or rounds on the large screen TV. The areas that challenged expectations were all to do with the bathroom. Finger marks on wall tiles at bath by previous users stepping into the bath; grime finger marks on door. We reported our concerns to reception and this was partly rectified.

Truly feel if the areas we found wanting were improved, the hotel would be on the path of 5 stars.
