I stayed here for 1 night for a business meeting and found it of a high standard, very clean well maintained, and comfortable. The meals are good although a little pricey, drinks good too! Well worth looking at deals to stay here.
Came here for a work stay. Beautiful setting and so peaceful. Room was immaculate. TV didnt work and there was no way I was going to pay £10 for wifi - what a rip off! Be warned if you have difficulties with stairs, I have never been in a hotel with so many short and long flights of stairs and the rooms are miles from reception. Gym and pool are well equipped and very good, I used both. Evening meal was good and breakfast was perfectly fine.
My girlfriend and I booked a two night stay but sadly we were very disappointed. The pictures of the hotel on the internet make it look ten times better then it is. Definitely in need of a revamp! Drinks and food hugely over priced. We had a meal in the cast iron restaurant which we didn't have to pay for the end as it was that terrible. We even noticed Morrisons labels on the food they were selling such as the Camembert cheese which they were selling for £14! Breakfast in the morning looked very appetising and had lots to chose from. We had the cooked breakfast which was cold on both mornings! The staff where lovely and couldn't be and more helpful but unfortunately we won't be staying again and also disappointed with Marriot
Lovely setting on a beautiful looking golf course. Older elegant hotel Nice sized comfortable rooms with good beds and a huge tv. Breakfast was good using quality local bacon and sausages, omelette and eggs cooked to order as well as the buffet. Next time i will bring my golf clubs!
We stayed at the hotel as we attended a family wedding, everything as far as I know about the wedding was lovely. The meal it's self I felt was perfect, I am vegetarian and can't explain the absolute horrors I have been served at functions like this over the years but this was without doubt one of the nicest meals at a wedding I have ever had and the buffet at night was fabulous. The drinks are very expensive and there was a terrible smell in the Pavilion most of the time, not sure why but the disabled toilet seemed to be badly affected. The rooms are very dated as is most of the pubic areas but it was all very clean, my mother in law's room had no heating and they had to send for blankets, breakfast was a nightmare, severely under staffed and not prepared for the amount of people who wanted feeding at around 9am, both the mushrooms and the scrambled egg were barely luke warm, trying to get a pot of tea was hard and the poor girl on the omelette station looked completely frazzled. I wouldn't stay again unless it was for another family occasion when we wouldn't have any choice really.
The setting for this lovely hotel (the oldest Marriott hotel) is wonderful. The grounds are very well kept as are the two golf courses. We played golf on the Moorland Course and it was tiring but fabulous. The weather was perfect, bit chilly but very sunny. Unfortunately, their used to be a fine dining restaurant at this hotel, but for some bizarre reason that no longer exists. Instead there is a more casual, pub like atmosphere, which we were disappointed with. We chose to eat elsewhere for the two nights. It would be nice if all the staff were a bit more friendly and at least said good morning, some do, but some don't. For an American owned company, this was disappointing. Our stay was lovely, the breakfast is plentiful and varied.
My wife and I were treated to an overnight stay with breakfast included and it was superb. On arrival we went to reception to check in and were puzzled when asked if we scared easily 'with a few sutle grins'. It turned out we had been given an upgrade to a better room with the only downside being that it was on the fourth floor (Not accessible by lift). Our room was in a part of the old priory which is apparently haunted. On retiring to our room and settling down in a lovely spacious and comfy room we were somewhat surprised to hear voices outside our window (Remember we were on the fourth floor). It turned out that there was a Ghost Walk being held that night and we assume the participants had been up on the fire escape outside our room. After a very good night's sleep in a extremely large and comfortable bed we showered in a clean and well presented ensuite before going down to our all-inclusive breakfast. The lady who showed us to our table advised us that we had in fact slept in the haunted room. The breakfast offered just about anything you could require and was continously being replenished and everything was fresh and hot with a member of staff cooking omlettes, fried eggs etc to order. If you are looking for a break and just want a change from the normal boring accomodation we would highly recommend this hotel. There are facilities for golfers, keep fit enthusiasts, swimmers, walkers etc but we were happy just to relax and do nothing. Luckily this hotel has still got a lot of it's old charm whilst offering all modern facilities. Thankyou to my sister and her husband for the gift and thankyou to all the staff who work so hard very successfully to make thier visitors stay an absoloute pleasure.
Stayed at the Priory 19th and 20th October. Unfortunately the weather was against us on Thursday when the greens on both courses were flooded. However it did stop raining mid afternoon by which time the group of 14 had consumed a fair bit of alcohol in the bar and a fair bit of money spent. Unfortunately the 20% discount agreed on drinks was not allowed as we were not able to give room numbers as we could not check in til 4pm. They did eventually give us numbers at 3pm. We were allowed to play 9 holes on the Moorland course which we were grateful for but only on certain holes. Would like to thank the course marshall did not get his name who showed us round and supplied some drinks also and a very nice man. Unfortunately the rain returned before we finished and got soaked. The rooms were very clean and tidy with good showers although I could not get much hot water but power was good. Tv and kettle supplied. The food was a bit dissapointing especially breakfast although plenty of choice the hot food was hardly warm never mind hot. The evening meal was acceptable portions not over big. One of the members ordered two glasses of red wine and when presented with the bill was asked for £17.50 without the 20% discount. Still £13.00 without. Luckily the weather was better on Friday and although wet we played the Priory course. Two nice courses which I would like to play again in better weather. All in all I enjoyed the trip but the Hotel is a very big rambling and old fashioned place which needs a bit of TLC.. Don't know if I would stay again.
Okay weekend - had expected more from the bedrooms - fairly plain and in need of refurbishment (the view from our room was a grass bank looking up to the car park). Breakfast was mediocre for £14.99 a head and service slow due to being very busy. Wouldn't rush back.
I am unable to eat gluten and the staff in the Cast Iron Restaurant went out of their way to make sure I had great food, even specially cooking fried potatoes and GF sausages for me for breakfast and adapting the dinner menu for me. The golf course was superbly maintained with well raked bunkers and well cut fairways and greens. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Couldn't fault it and have rarely had such superb service in a hotel in this country!
