We booked this hotel through booking.com for a wedding. Due to covid restrictions the wedding date had to be moved. We asked via booking .com whether we could move the booking to the new date but were refused. Booking.com made it quite clear it was the hotel’s decision not to change the booking date or refund us the money. Very disappointed that this stance has been taken given the circumstances, Nearly £200 wasted.

We had our wedding reception at the grand hotel and they were amazing. Eleanor dealt with us from start to finish to make sure everything was perfect, she put up with all my nagging (sorry) and ensured we had the best day. All the staff on the day were so helpful and kind, especially Sam who couldn't do enough for us and ensured the room was perfect. The food was stunning, guests are still talking about how nice the beef dinner was. We stayed in the penthouse room with a hot tub which was epic!! The day and room was perfect and all the little details done by the hotel and staff made it unforgettable, even down the our own gin sprits cocktail which I highly recommend.

Booked this hotel to take my parents away for my Mums birthday. On arriving we tried to book a table in the restaurant and were told it was closed. I wouldn't mind but we chose this hotel over another as the other Hotels restaurant was closed. My parents are in their 80's and so we were trying to make it easy. We could have eaten in the bar but there was sport on in there so not really somewhere they would like to eat. On getting to my room the waste paper bin was overflowing with the previous guests rubbish which made me worry about how clean the rest of the room was. Breakfast was ok apart from the hollandaise sauce on the eggs royale was stone cold. A shame really as the eggs were perfectly cooked.
