The friendly staff who you would see working until 11 at night and would be back at breakfast with a smile on their face.
The water was temperamental, it would suddenly stop mid shower but it is an old building with character so can be overlooked.
Staff very attentive and friendly. Service not rushed but on time. The food throughout was first class - beautifully prepared and presented. Compliments to the Chef and his aides! Well done:
Not much to find wrong !
The staff are polite
No room in the restaurant to eat (one of the only reasons we booked a Macdonald Hotel) ordered room service over 1 hour and 10 minutes later still no food!!would have paid £320 to eat in our hotel room, we decided to leave once the food did not turn up and the neighbours dog insisted on barking for a full hour non stop. Stayed in hundreds of hotels this one is not worth the price tag it charges.
the location was wondrous,the decor was luxurious, the service was excellent and the staff were highly competent who take their amazing guest experience to another level. Karen, Alec and their team made our stay that little bit more perfect. We will certainly return.
The water pressure was the only downside however there is the option of the very deep bath. This would not deter another stay.
Staff all very friendly and attentive. Views of the lake are amazing and the rooms were lovely.
Breakfast service staff couldn't do enough for u
Room was cold on arrival & receptionist plugged a heater in that was already in the room when heating was on max radiators were Luke warm but having little heater on all the time was noisey & in the morning it was cold.our room was 10 & we paid for an upgrade aswell which I think should be refunded because of heating.
The marvellous views. Staff. Cleanliness.
Poor wifi system. Pillows. Booked two balcony rooms. Paid same price for both. But one bathroom far superior to the other. Happy with both, but feel there should be a difference in price. Also feel in the superior rooms, fridges could be supplied as an extra. Look at Premier Inn for pillows.!! All in all, nitpicking. Stunning hotel.
Interesting menu with well cooked food Friendly helpful staff
The staff are a credit to the hotel, lovely people and very friendly making you feel at ease.
The relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant
Room was clean and comfortable, staff friendly and helpful, games for kids very useful. Gardens and lake walks beautiful.
Mobile signal non existant. Wifi very poor. For a hotel of this calibre you should have an in house strong wifi signal and not use the "cloud" which is complicated to access, weak, and does not allow streaming. A mini bar in room would be usefull.
Very comfortable bed and lovely surroundings. Morning receptionist very helpful.
We discovered bar meals weren't being served after 6.30 pm although the receptionist had said 10.00 pm. Staff said we could order from the bar menu but we had to eat in the library. The tables in the library were very low and this caused some discomfort - not too good for the digestion system either!
Very good location. Nice room with lovely view between trees across lake.
Room Service not always good. E.g. ordered cafetiere for 2 but only received for 1. When requested more, additional cafetiere came but no second cup and saucer! Also forgot to bring jug of milk. All told it took 3 trips to resolve the issue! Ordered newspaper for both mornings but wasn't delivered first morning. Ordered coffee in lounge but delivered without milk so then had to wait for someone to come by to ask for milk. These were small problems but not good enough when paying quite a lot of money for the 2 nights we were there.
Lovely building and fabulous views from the breakfast room. Good big pillows, comfy bed and large fluffy towels.
Shower leaked in puddles all over the floor and water pressure was low. Toilet dripped most of the time. Hard to get through on the phone to the room service as no-one was answering.
From the moment we arrived to the time we left the hotel staff were most courteous, and the feature room was to die for.
Location and food and a sherry on arrival.
Friendliness of welcome. Very nice staff, super food. Very well appointed room. Very nice breakfast.
Clean and immaculate decor
Shower feeble. Bar meals over-priced
Lovely Hotel with nice views comfortable room and nice food
Lovely big comfy bed Delicious food
Breakfast food supplement for smoked haddock. Dinner supplement for cheese. Dinner at £40 was over priced, wine at £25 was very over priced
The whole ambience of the hotel,peaceful surroundings,courteous and efficient staff.Comfort of our room was excellent.Definitely return and recommend to friends.
WFI was not free as we were led to believe from Booking.com but it was not a big issue with us.
The views surrounding the hotel
To wake up to the sound of a dog barking for half an hour Sunday morning. Being told I couldn't sit by the window because the waitress didn't have time to clear the tables!!
