          We were went to the horse trials at Badminton the hotel was only 30 drive from Badminton. and only 15 mins. from the discount shopping mall. The swimming pool was great.

          Don't stay in room 105 as the loading doors next to that bedroom are open at 7.45 loading laundry that was not good Bank Holiday Monday. also the bed has a dip in the middle.

          We were allowed to let our dog into the room in the evenings. The dog slept in the car, at night, but no-one was concerned when the dog came in the hotel by a side door. Staff were friendly and polite and helpful.

          The noisy wedding party on Saturday 10th April. Wedding guests bedrooms should be confined to one wing and they should be informed that other guests may wish to sleep after 11pm.

          Excellent buffet dinner with attentive waiting staff

          The trek from reception to our bedroom took several minutes. Another guest showed us how to go out of a fire exit, across the gardens and round through the car park but the building urgently needs another interconnecting corridor.

          Quietness, spacy room

          After the first night, the bed wasn't made properly. The top blanket was just pulled over a totally wrinkled sheet, as it looks when you have slpet in it. We complained at the front desk. It was corrected.

          Rooms were smart and clean. Very good buffet breakfast.

          Bar prices and bar food rather extortionate - London prices for beer plus £3 for a very small bowl of chips!

          A very warm welcome, friendly staff and great for business stays, meetings and conferences. Nice pool and gym for relaxation and excercise.

          I forgot my swimming / gym kit. It would have been a really outstanding experience if I could have rented/ borrowed or purchased an emergency bikini / pair of shorts / trainers. A small on site shop would be a great addition to available services....and , if well managed, probably a nice addition to income too!

          Staff all welcoming friendly and professional. The staff make the hotel.

          The tablecloth at breakfast was dirty - hadn't even even been 'crumbed down'.

          For what we paid (£65) the room and hotel was excellent.
