We went as a party of 24 senior citizens for a Festive Lunch prior to Christmas. The food was excellent. Well cooked, hot and beautifully presented. The room ( Ambassador Suite) was lovely with gorgeous views over the grounds. We were looked after very well by welcoming and attentive staff. We are all agreed we will make a return visit.

Really good visit, very welcoming and friendly staff. Lovely room, and great parking. Try and get away early in the morning, as the hotel is near a school, and the parent parking can be a nightmare. Other than that I will stay again when in the area.

Nice hotel but could do with a lift or two. The food was nice in the restaurant. The service was excellent though. The hotel is pretty secluded but quiet which is good. The bed was a little small and the room was very small. Other than that was a nice stay.
