I was fortunate enough to stay in this magnificent hotel over the summer and dine at the Lady Helen. This was a fantastic experience with every element of our meal perfect, exciting and full of taste. Service was perfect and understated... the food memorable showing a tantalising balance in its range of tastes and variety of favors. Each dish was exciting and complete. The resident vegetarian was also fully satisfied and rated her meal very highly ...this is a smart, competent kitchen and I look forward to a return visit. Our stay, the hotel and the surrounding grounds were magnificent and matched the perfection of the Lady Helen.
