The location of the hotel is great and when the building works are finished and sufficient staff employed the hotel will come up to its 4 star rating. Our room was modern, nicely furnished and the in room tea making was good. Whilst the breakfast buffet was varied the few waiters on duty had a job coping with serving coffee/tea and cooked to order breakfasts. At dinner time service was good, unfortunately the kitchen was slow and guests were left waiting too long for their meal.

Room Tip: Be prepared to find your way around the place as various older and newer buildings are on different...

Comfortable beds, room was quite large.

Excellent breakfasts.

We enjoyed the Christmas function there, and for 180 guests it was not too crowded, and the catering was very good indeed!

On the one night we had dinner at the Blue Smoke restaurant. I had the salmon, which was superb. My Mrs ordered the pork belly which was also really good.

Quite suprising for a hotel restaurant. The only downside is that it is quite pricey. Even with their special offer, it amounted to £22 for starter and main per person.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view otherwise you might get one with a view of the stores.

The hotel is currently undergoing major development but this did not impact on the stay at all,
I found the staff very helpful and friendly, my room was well balanced and spacious enough with a view of the lake. I tried the new restaurant "Blue smoke on the bay" which boasts an amazing indoor BBQ Grill, premium food, well presented and in a timely manor, the best venison I have ever tasted for sure, its not cheap but for the best I've ever had worth every penny. I certainly didn't feel like I had just been taken for a ride with the cost, I've paid a lot more for a lot worse. I can imagine when the current builders work is finished the hotel will have transformed into something quite special. will stay again.

Hotel right alongside the lake
Lovely views albeit that it is close to the main road and depending on the location of your room can be a little noisy
Currently there are major works being undertaken at the rear of the hotel but little interference
The hotel staff are excellent , the main restaurant very good, and the spa superb

Room Tip: Our room was delightful but during the night rooms on the front will suffer traffic noise (Hotel ra...
