This hotel, which is in very pleasant surroundings, provides great service and is a wonderful venue for a wedding. The food is very good and the drinks are a bit expensive. We did not stay in the hotel, so cannot comment further.

My daughter treated me to an aromatherapy massage and afternoon tea. Our treatments were amazing, excellent therapists. Afternoon tea was fabulous. As we were the only people in the spa, it was perfect. I can imagine it would be crowded with other guests as the spa area is fairly small,particularly the changing facilities. Having said that as we were the...

It is always great to drive up the sweeping drive to this old house hotel.
