Good for a couple's stay

Pros: Spacious room with a large wardrobe, although the lighting around the room is very dim. Great spa facilities. Good dinner choices at restaurant.
Cons: No information booklet in the room. We had conflicting info about check-out time and breakfast times (from booking info, receptionist and restaurant).
Location: Since the hotel is just off the motorway, it makes a good base for exploring the neighbourhood. We enjoyed a couple of National Trust properties.
We had a "couple's escape" (from kids :) ) for two nights, and it was a very pleasant and relaxed stay. We had dinner at the hotel's restaurant both nights and really enjoyed the food. Breakfast options were quite good as well - it was a combination of buffet and hot food on order. WiFi in the room was strong. There weren't any big parties or weddings at the hotel when we were staying but I can understand concerns of some visitors in the past, as the way to our room was indeed through a couple of function rooms, which could only be avoided by walking outside.

Very nice hotel in lovely peaceful setting

Pros: Setting
Cons: Adair conditioning in rooms over spa
Location: We attended the football at Turf moor
Lovely hotel , staff very friendly , restaurant very good ,breakfast plentiful. Only one complaint , the room we stayed in was above the spa & was very hot , should have air conditioning as we had the windows wide open all night as it would have been impossible to sleep with the heat rising from the spa, we did complain & were offered another room ,but if hotel had been full this would not have been possible, we were also given a fan, we would come back to the hotel but check that the room was not anywhere near the Spa. Overall though it is a very peaceful setting & convenient hotel.
