Customer Rating: Mr Withington, Hilton derbyshire

Customer Rating: Ms Fray, Ashford Our 3 course evening meal was very good, with portion size being quite generous. The late opening of the swimming pool was a welcome, helping us to relax after a long day of activities. Although children were welcomed at the hotel, there was little for them to do there.
