Stayed as couples for a golf, stay and dine evening. Hotels rooms are nice in size just looking a little dated. Staff at the hotel and spa could not be more friendly and helpful. Spa area is lovely however the pool area, including changing rooms and Saunas could all do with a good clean they looked very dirty. Not really what we expected for a top hotel? The main disappointment was the food. Evening meal choice for a Saturday evening was like a choice of 3 types of Sunday lunch?? Starters of leek and potato soup tasted like fish. The whole group didn’t enjoy any of the meal. The following breakfast was worse! A doggy bag delivered to your room with watery yogurts, a stale pastry cold burnt and very dry meat on a breakfast sandwich. I wouldn’t give it to my dog! I understand Covid makes things more difficult and new measures are in place but I expected more from a top Hotel chain!
