We picked this hotel because of its genuine art deco design and the association with Agatha Christie books and films for my wife's birthday present. We were delighted with everything throughout the whole stay. Facilities, service, staff, dining and outside areas were exactly as expected. Staff helpfulness and friendliness in every area were above all expectations. The best thing was my wife says it was the best birthday present ever so worth every penny in my view.

Unique and fun experience, but small food portions in grand ballroom. That worked with the 7 course taster menu (the return.of which, with wine pairing, would be welcomed) but not with a 3 course meal. Also, more 'theatre' and dancing, in the grand ballroom, to make each evening an event.

Does not merit premium rates
Quirky, unique and lovely setting. Great bar staff and very clean. Room was pleasant but not luxurious. Appears to be cash-cowed with very poor general management. Unable to recruit/retain or train sufficient staff. Sadly many complaints over 3 days: poor directions to carpark, covered parking too small for large car, sauna booked (twice) but not switched on in time so cold, table tennis advertised but not available, they confirmed restaurant booking the day before but told on arrival it was closed, breakfast wait 50 minutes on day one, reception staff rude (did apologise when asked to by manager), black tie dinner in ballroom advertised to include dancing afterwards, but didn’t, kept waiting 75 minutes for luggage to be taken to our car by hotel car after check-out. Things got better when we complained to reception manager and we appreciated the bottle of champagne but standards kept slipping. This hotel is fully booked through the year at high prices and makes a ton of money (as the management staff told us) but it does not have the leadership, processes, training, or retention strategy in place to deliver. Very, very disappointing. We’d recommend limiting any stay to 24 hours and clearly does not merit the premium rates.

Lovely staff poor management - a tainted paradise
What a delightful hotel in an idyllic setting. it is difficult to write this review because the staff were lovely but woefully under equipped and therefore the service creaked terribly. the prices rto saty are high, so guests eithe have shedloads of money or more probably, like us, pushed the boat out for a special occasion and deserved better. The management should take a good look at this and sort things out. Pay decent salaries to attract/retain staff and also take a more hands on approach to running the place rather than leave it in inexperienced hands at peak times of the year.
