This was my Son's wedding. The grounds are beautiful but sadly you cant eat the grounds, we couldn't eat the food either. The newlyweds went to a tasting but the food on the day bore no resemblance to what was served on the wedding. I was immediately alerted as the main course lamb, looked fatty some guest reported it smelt...

Hotel in general looking a bit 'tired' and could do with refurbishing. Room prices too high. Lovely location and grounds very well looked after. Rooms for wedding service and reception all laid out beautifully.

Up all night due to iron trolleys outside of bedroom at the back of the building. Also not happy at being asked to pay more for breakfast as only booked room only. Spa was not great...

The towels in the spa treatment room were the grubbiest I've ever seen...the white towels were black and they smelt like rancid oil...it's the first time that I didn't want to lie on a treatment bed, they smelt and looked like they hadn't been washed for weeks 😝 The towels they gave you for showering were pristine white so why...

The approach to the hotel via a private driveway is very scenic and the hotel very characterful. Excellent service from the staff, delicious evening meal and superb selection of quality wines. The bedroom with en suite was compact and adequate. It makes a fantastic wedding venue.

Charging £3 for paying by credit card at checkout on a £100+ bill seems excessive penny pinching. I can understand this for low value purchases but not for higher value ones. Absorb it. Also the food was pretty average, given the prices being charged that were higher than similar quality hotels.
