Short break

This is a nice hotel but if you dont like hot bedrooms you may have a problem. We went in late Oct and even with windows open too too hot. No control on heating in room. The bed was also disappointing, especially the pillows which are very cheap, hard and uncomfortable. My daughter joined us for one night and was housed in the lodge. This in need of a major update. Very basic and run down compared to main building. The staff however are fantastic and the sports facilities are great.
