The place has recently been refurbished and public areas are fine. The bedroom we had needs some finishing touches - the designer should spend a night in the room to check out the shortfall. For example: No mirror in the bedroom and no conveniently positioned power sockets for the hair drier (2 provided!); Shaver socket over the mirror in the bathroom so high that it was only just in reach for me at 6 ft 2 in tall; fire exit light which could not be turned off inside the bedroom over the door- should be in passageway outside the door, difficult to find the keyhole at night; Great shutters and curtains on windows which kept the light out but the 2 skylights let the sun stream in at 5.30 am - needs blinds; confusing number of switches which did not do anything; Strange, incomplete four poster frame over the comfortable bed. Restaurant was goodish but the expensive crab special should have had more tasty, the turbot fillet in the fish special should have been a little larger. and the chocolate sweet dish was quite average. The Apple soufflé was excellent.
Helpful staff and excellent breakfast.

From the moment we arrived till we left we were treated superbly and very professionally. The room was spotless with everything you need to hand. The hot tub was prepared and lovely and warm on arrival. Everything is just that little bit better than anywhere else I've stayed. Our stay dos not include dinner so we were unable to eat at the restaurant as they were fully booked weeks before our stay which tells its own story and from the smell and look of the food being served as we left that evening I can easily see why they were fully booked. We ate at the Cote brasserie in Newbury which I would highly recommend if you are unable to eat at the restaurant.

The breakfast was ok but I didn't realise you could have it in your own room and found that the staff could of advised this in the book which we had in our room, reception staff were lovely but the breakfast staff were a bit abrupted.
Loved the hot tub and that's why I really booked it.

Staff, food, ambiance

telephone in the room was not working. The room needs final finishing touches and the location next to the road makes it noisy. It can do with triple glazing
The food is excellent specially the sea fruit platter and the breakfast

The boiler broke whilst we were there so only one of the shower heads worked (there were 2). But not a huge problem overall and they did ring me before I arrived to let me know about it.
Restaurant was amazing (would recommend the crab) Rooms very well decorated - each room themed on a different place was a nice touch. We were in Bora Bora which was lovely. Private hot tub was a massive plus - all set up and hot when we arrived and was kept on all night so you could use again in the morning Staff very friendly and helpful

Room was a bit cold, but that is really nit picking it was still very good
3 November 2014
Bedroom was tired; didn't actually mind that, but cars whizzing past late at night/early morning were really noisy. And we live by a main road!
Food was excellent. Both dinner and breakfast. In fact, the dinner was superb. They really know how to cook fish, and make it totally tasty. Crab was enormous, and very good value for money. Staff very friendly, courteous and helpful. All of them. The ambience of the place is a joy, and the décor interesting and fun.

The room and facilities. Advertised wifi - no wifi. Advertised DVD player - no DVD player. DVD player eventually supplied - did not work. TV remote did not work, not did manual controls on TV. And - unbelievably - no water from shower. 1 poor member of staff unable to help. Manager nowhere - promised we'd be contacted, weren't. Avoid.

The room we had was Cipriani and was outstanding. The hot tub was bliss especially with the full gazebo in the english weather. We ate in the restaurant and as always the food was excellent and the service was first class. With all the fresh seafood on the evening menu, the breakfast doesn't get much of a mention, but is also an excellent meal with good quality produce. A perfect place for a nice relaxing break.

We stayed in the bird island room with a hot tub which was great but the room was just behind receptions door leading out to a terrace ! The hotel allowed a birthday party to come out in this terrace area and smoke and drink right outside our door and was VERY noisy and the language was awful. We got woken 3 times due to this so had a bad sleeping experience - NOT HAPPY
The hot tube was amazing - very relaxing ! The food was outstanding, best I have tested

No bed side tables or lamps so had to get out of bed after reading to turn the light off.
Room was quirky and different Good choice of breakfast.

I would not go as far as to say I did not like, but felt that the overhanging bamboo cover for the hot tub was looking a bit worn and could be replaced now - this is only a minor point
Food as always a very high standard, staff very attentive and friendly. Room was well presented and clean. Breakfast like with the main meal is of a good standard. Would certainly go again.
