We stayed 2 nights and had a good time, although we found it a bit dated and haphazard.
The plus points: the food was very good. We ate in the conservatory restaurant on Friday evening and really enjoyed our meals, I had the prawn and salmon oatcake and my husband the steak and Stilton pie. Veggies were done al dente with generous portions and were delicious. My lemon posset dessert was gorgeous!
We had to leave for a function early on Saturday morning, and the staff were very accommodating - allowing us in to breakfast early on the understanding that it would be continental only. We very much appreciated this and the selection of cereals, toast, pastries etc on offer was extensive. The following morning we had the full English breakfast and again it was very good.
Our accommodation was in a 60s chalet in the grounds. I was initially dismayed when I saw how dated it was but to be fair it was clean and comfy with a good bed, and a refurbished bathroom. The downside was that the walls were thin and we could hear every conversation and movement from the chalet that backed on to ours. We found it hard to relax as a result and would not stay in a chalet like this again.
We didn’t have a special deal and thought it was quite expensive for the quality of accommodation. But we really enjoyed the food!
