Beautiful hotel inside with very relaxing rooms. Bedroom was very comfortable and spacious. Shower head was fixed a little low and my husband who is 6 feet tall could not stand under it. Lady in reception was very friendly and helpful, gave us a guided tour of the place. One of the first questions was if we were eating in the restaurant that evening. We were caught off guard and said yes. Very disappointed with the quantities given. Hardly any choice for £30pp and slightly more for £50pp. I had 1 spoon of cold chicken leg meat mixed with a pinch of mixed leaves, then a small square of fish with 1 spoon of pearl barley and 1 spear of broccoli. Desert was 3 crackers and 2 small slithers of cheese. The whole thing never touched the sides and cost the hotel £5 maximum and they charge £30, breakfast was average and plenty of help yourself fruit and cereal.... Is it worth £25....again, rip off and things like this will prevent people returning. People may have been happy to pay whatever you demanded 5 years ago, times change and your menu and penny pinching needs to change also.

Great grounds, impressive building, quality furnishings but we felt spoilt by penny-pinching - not an inexpensive hotel so why charge £2,50 per bottle for mineral water in the room and charge for morning papers when many contemporaries treat these as complementary. Further web site states that "the hotel's dinner menu changes daily and is included in all break packages" ......sadly not true - same breaks menu for each night we stayed. Web-site also states fresh fruit baskets and sweet platters are offered on all corridors....nope.....Sweet platter not replenished and fruit was artificial. As for the dining : on the first night fish sent back as uncooked amd one dessert dish forgotten, not so impressive.

We booked to stay here for one night and loved it.
As most people state it's not the cheapest of venues but everyone knows this before they book. I would advise to check out the menu prices before booking in as they can be surprising, £25pp for a cooked breakfast is expensive.
Luckily we had booked with breakfast included. The grounds are very well kept and very nice for a quick stroll, the staff were very friendly and seemed to be running around after people, probably could do with an extra member of staff to help especially around dinning times.
All in all it was clean, newly decorated bedroom, food was very nice, staff were great and it's quite quirky venue. We found it a nice relaxing night away treat and wouldn't be put off from returning.

The speed bumps on the drive are very extreme beware!

Great hotel, great location, nice staff- all let down by average food. We weren't alone in our views on the food. We complained and nothing was said or done. This is a real shame for such a wonderful location/
