    This hotel was excellent . Set in beautiful surroundings, Very up to date hotel. Breakfast was very very good and the staff could not have been more helpful. It was a shame that we only had one night booked so we did not have time to enjoy the luxury spa, but next time!!

    Superb

    The bed and pillows were so soft. The breakfast was delicious

    We had some very loud people staying along from us. They woke us up very late at night and were being silly again in the morning. This is nothing to do with the hotel though

    Good

    Restaurant food simple but good. Service excellent.

    Bed (described as very comfortable) was very uncomfortable. Batch described as a 'deep bath' was just an ordinary bath.

    Superb

    Room was very comfortable with a great view. Spa facility was excellent. The views from the resident lounge terrace were breath taking. Staff were courteous and couldn't do enough for you. Brilliant breakfast!

    Bar prices are too high. Air con in venue room was continually switched on and off, making the room uncomfortable at times.

    Amazing new hotel. Exceptionally polite, caring staff especially receptionist Nicki who is always ready to make the guests more than comfortable. Modern, beatiful, functional, comfortable, warmly decorated rooms and attached bath, spotless and clean. Great breakfast and stunning view, what more could one ask for. Stayed several times already this year

    Fabulous

    A luxurious hotel with friendly and helpful staff, we loved the large swimming pool and saunas/steam rooms it was very relaxing. The food was excellent, really enjoyed the breakfast, the eggs were cooked perfectly - well done chef! I would definately go back.

    There were some very selfish loud young men staying over on Saturday night who were banging on a door near my room and shouting. Had to go out to find night porter who was very helpful and was doing his best to quieten them.

    The bathroom was superb. Well fitted out and lovely and clean. The bedroom was nice and comfortable,clean and fresh. The evening meal was perfect as was the breakfast the following morning. There was a good choice of menu served by professional staff and the meals were well cooked and presented. As our stay was a 70th birthday present I cannot comment on price or value for money but I would like to say that our overnight stay at Mcdonalds Portal hotel was a most enjoyable occasion and I would not hesitate in recommending it to my friends and associates.

    friendly staff especially at check out, he made us feel special and took the time to engage in general conversation. The check in was completely different, on the phone for 5 mins, then gave us room keys and seemed unhappy.

    there was nothing we didnt like at all, just £145 for room without breakfast was a little expensive.

    Guest rating

    Our experience at the Macdonald Portal was much less than four star, however the Bar Manager John Bikkerstaff was exceptionally attentive and perhaps other staff could follow his example when dealing with guests.

    The pillows were cheap and did not lend themselves to a good nights sleep; we ate in the bar and had breakfast in the restaurant and each time the food was never warm; service extremely slow and disorganised; on both mornings of our stay we had to ask a second time for our toast; the toast was, well just warm bread. Cleanliness throughout the hotel could be improved; the shower in our bedroom requires a deep clean, and certain areas require much more attention to detail for a four star establishment.

    Excellant location with vast views almost all round from the raised area of the grounds. Well kept grounds make it the perfect place to relax. The food in the restaurant is good and well presented.

    The pillows were too flat and there was no choice of others in the room. Music in the restaurant may have been a bit too loud, but that may be a personal observation.

    Location and size.

    The restaurant was poor, especially the staff and the portion sizes. The wait for breakfast was simply intollerable!!!!!
