We had a lovely room, very large facing the bridge over the little pond/lake. It was interesting as there was a wedding going on so plenty to watch! My main issue was the bar area. It was like a very naff pub, not that clean and very tatty. Our visit was May 2016 so maybe they have had a revamp...

We booked a double room (no.48) as we were attending a wedding reception. The room was a good size with a huge bathroom but the decor and furniture was tired and a bit tatty. The huge bathroom was absolutely freezing cold - tiled floor, high ceiling, radiator turned down and did not cope when turned up. The walls had holes...

We arrived at the hotel on a chilly January evening, ice was forming on the lake but the fountain was still managing to operate. Crossing the footbridge to the hotel is a very lovely way to arrive at the imposing building on its island. Despite the cold the hotel was warm and comfortable (and not too warm as is so...

We stayed in an executive double which boasted an elegant four poster bed and large en suite with a roll top Victoria and Albert bath. We were lucky to have beautiful crisp winter weather during our two day stay. The lake was frozen as we stood admiring the setting before some drinks in the bar and our evening meal in...

Excellent in all respects! Lovely drinks reception in Charlie's Bar, where we were fascinated with Tom's magic tricks. Lunch was beautifully cooked and service very slick. We were in a room overlooking the superb lake and gardens and as the room was well laid out we had lots of space for our family group. Everyone had a gift included and...
