    Seems pointless offering a booking system for breakfast when it is not adhered to by either guests or by the staff prioritising guests who have booked. We booked breakfast for both mornings of our stay but still had to stand in a ridiculously long queue with people who hadn't bothered booking who were still getting a table first. Overall staff were helpful but the system could have been organised better.

    Stayed two nights. The evening meal was very good, plenty of choice from three different menus. Service was excellent. The first morning it was self service for the cereal, etc, but the cooked breakfast was plated up in the kitchen, no problems. Second morning it was all self serve and again everything was delicious, staff looked after everyone, keeping tables clean and tidy. All in all a very good experience.

    Do not forget to book your evening meals a good week in advance. You could end up like we did, no option but to have bar menu every night. There were never any tables available to book even though restaurant never seemed even half full.

    The breakfasts were generally good, with a breakfast buffet (maybe a nice addition would be mushrooms to the buffet). The juices were concentrated, so not completely fresh juice. The tea was very nice (Yorkshire Tea) but not a decaf coffee choice.
