Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   I didn't stay 😪 @ the Chateau on the Park but went to a travel presentation that was put on there & from what I saw it looks like this place is a bit of all right. 🤗 While there I managed to use the gents & the bar I went through appeared to be well stocked & the staff very helpful, also the people drinking there appeared to be enjoying themselves after a hard day. Food was served @ the travel presentation & believe me it was excellent. The wee canapes, I'm not entirely sure 🤔 if that's the word but I can only say the tucker was varied & plentiful plus it was enjoyable, yes it tasted good. If the canapes are anything to go by then the rest of the food served here should tick all the boxes. 😋 Personally I liked what I saw & would enjoy being invited back. So let me know asap 😊

Review:   We stayed for 7 nights recently and were amazed at the amenities and the service. Our room was comfortable and big enough for 2 people although an additional chair would have been helpful. The staff were exceptional-courteous, friendly, always ready to help or chat. The restaurant staff-managers, receptionists, waitresses, chefs, were the best I have ever seen. Everyone was friendly, nothing was too much trouble, they remembered our various likes (no dislikes as there was nothing to dislike), and the food was outstanding. They must have a very top rated chef. Service was quick. I would certainly really like to go back again and enjoy the exceptional service.

Review:   I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel! Got in late and the staff was very accommodating of this and had warm cookies for me and my family. The hotel restaurant stays open pretty late, and we had a decent meal. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast spread was incredible. It's probably worth staying just for the breakfast! The setting is also gorgeous, with beautifully tended gardens and courtyards. I highly recommend.

Review:   Friendly check in made even better with a complimentary cookie (warm and delicious). We arrived early, despite which they were able to accommodate our room, which was tidy and had everything we expected. We were surprised to even have a bath too. Breakfast was included which we made the most of, a good selection and good quality. Overall Great facilities and a great location, we would use them again.
