Excellent Hotel
Even though I've drove past this hotel numerous times I never thought about booking a stay here on such a special occasion as my 15th wedding anniversary and I'm glad I did. The hotel is excellent, the staff very friendly and can't do enough for you, the room was amazing and the food equally as good. Although is was slightly pricey I would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone and will be a returning guest.

Quality of room
Considering the price of the room (£175), it was smaller than expected. It did not include breakfast. If we wanted breakfast it would've been an extra £11 each - so that's £22 on top of the room rate. The room had a spider by the wardrobe which shows that the housekeeping staff ignore that side of the room - lack of room inspection. Either someone came into the room at night time to set the lighting and put jazz music on, or it was set automatically? It would have been nice to have been informed about this though as we then panicked about someone coming into the room without us knowing.
Everything else was fine - poachers bar food was fantastic!

Mini-break at The Raithwaite Estate in June 2014
From the moment of my arrival until the time I left four days later everyone made me feel a welcome guest., customer service was the best I have ever experienced either in the UK or overseas. It was marvellous to hear the employes' pride in the facilities and the gardens (the latter should not be missed). Food in the restaurants was not only beautifully cooked and presented but locally sourced where possible. This hotel has spoiled me for staying anywhere else.

Mixed feelings
Front of house staff were lovely. The big disappointment was the service in the restaurant. Table booked for 8.15pm, it was 9.45pm before we got our main course!! The quality was also disappointing. We were told it was because the kitchen was "very busy", not a very valid excuse as they know how many diners they are catering for. We were not offered anything in the way of compensation ( one would at least expect a free drink or money off the bill). The same thing happened 2 nights later in the bar !
Would have to think hard about returning as the stay was not cheap.

Over priced but nice
Very nice hotel with good but not great facilities. The Gym is very small, 2 treadmills, 2 bikes. The pool was nice but dodge the kids time if you want to swim. Room and batchroom very nice. The hotel is very very expensive, I would say double what it should be, for 1 night I could literally have gone to spain for a weeks holiday. Finally, the staff were lovely and couldnt do enough for you.
