          Always one of my favorite spots to take family and friends visiting -even if it's just for tea and cake, doesn't always have to be a huge meal. Beautiful gardens to stroll in or perfect for a picnic. Food will never disappoint.

          Such a relaxed environment to have lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Pity the service is slow but the place is beautiful. The rooms are specious and clean and the reception staff is very helpful. The costs are quite reasonable.

          Has so much more potential to add to the beautiful gardens and setting. Noisy staff in dinning room, with one waiter chewing gum! Reception was cool .... rooms big and spacious, but lighting totally inadequate in which to do some work.
