Customer Rating: Mr cook, Ashford Lovely bar girl Louise she was very helpful and worked so hard. Reception staff lovely also but sadly they need more staff for bar and restaurant. Long wait for drinks and food which is a shame as guests all moaning. This hotel has a lovely spa but when we came out and went to the bar it took 20 minuets to get served with a drink not good when your hot and thirsty. There was a wedding on that day only one bar open as some one did not make up other bar for the wedding and took about 2hrs to sort out not good. Then we went for a walk in the stunning grounds and thought what a lovely place we are going to come back and try again and hopefully you will have more staff on or no function on but all that said good value for money.

Customer Rating: Mr Hope, Blackwood This was our second stay at the hotel and we were apprehensive booking again after poor service at dinner. Our doubts were satisfied by receiving a warm welcome from both reception and restaurant staff, excellent food, excellent service and accommodation.

Customer Rating: Mrs Davies-Turton, Halesowen The stay was wonderful. Hotel just as described, evening meal offered a good choice, we just chose to pay additional for steak. My only little complaint is the house wine included with our meal was awful..... however taking the price into consideration it was nothing to moan about. Breakfast was lovely.

Customer Rating: Mr Wilson, Southampton

Customer Rating: Mr Hilton, Basingstoke We were e-mailed a week before our stay asking if we would like an upgrade, but having replied that we would were told on arrival that none were available. We were then given a room that was very dim and had a safe marked as out of order. When we asked to change the receptionist was very helpful and found us a satisfactory room. In the restaurant Beverley was extremely helpful and managed to tweak the menu to our tastes and we were very impressed with the evening meals

Customer Rating: Mrs Bryant, Yeovil The three-course dinner we had included was of a very high quality. My first choice starter was unavailable but I thoroughly enjoyed my second choice and I couldn't fault any of the courses I had. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend but for me the dinner was the highlight.
