The hotel’s location and grounds are lovely. But its greatest asset is definitely its staff, who were very helpful and pleasant. I should say that all of the staff we dealt with were great, but I must particularly mention the reception, waiting and kitchen staff. They went the extra mile to ensure that our vegetarian dining requirements were met, and...

We recently celebrated my husbands 70th birthday here and cannot thank the hotel and particularly Collette and her sister Mayani (sp?) for looking after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble and everybody, without exception, had a fantastic afternoon. Two guests required a special menu and again everything was perfect. We spilled out into the gardens after lunch which...

Wonderful in every way. From the bedroom to the bar the breakfast room to the function room. Every area was so clean and tidy. The food was fabulous and the staff were all lovely, helpful, polite and well presented. You couldn't want for anything. Perfect wedding, perfect day made by the hotel staff

This is a lovely quiet, 'get away from it all' type venue. We took afternoon tea here as a treat to my mother. Staff were great whilst booking before hand and on arrival at the venue. All our needs were met without any fuss. Staff were efficient throughout our meal without being over friendly! As afternoon teas go this was...

Very spacious bedroom, clean pillows and bedlinen and lovely views over the front garden and countryside. Very pleasant reception on arrival with full explanation on dinner and breakfast times etc. There was a lot of cobwebs and dead...
