Wouldn't recommend this hotel, not for the price. Booked a room on the ground floor but was on the first floor looking out on to the hedge. Did change our room and was offered help with our luggage as it was such a long way from reception, help never arrived so struggled with everything to our room. Breakfast was a... More

Went to a wedding here and it was lovely when you arrive seeing the grand hotel. The room was also lovely and staff were very helpful whilst it was extremely busy! Also loved the homely feel in the bar area and the Christmas decorations were a delight to look at.

Room was fabulous. Had a great view of the grounds. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was very good and varied. Evening meal was also nice. Couldn't fault most of it. The only disappointing thing was the noise from the children in the seating area outside our room. I think they were part of a wedding party and had a number... More

Stayed at the hotel for one night only. Upon arrival you are greeted with a beautiful country estate at the end of a winding lane. The hotel itself was beautiful. We stayed in an executive double room. Luxurious surroundings, the view was beautiful and there was ample space. We had breakfast there which was the usual continental breakfast and Full... More

We stayed for an overnight as it was close to a wedding we were going to. Beautiful old mansion house. Attentive staff. Our room was beautifully appointed. Bathroom was large and had a great shower with complimentary Gilchrist toiletries. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Beautiful hotel - Executive Suite was lovely with a gorgeous view. Food in the restaurant was excellent. Just needs a bigger bar area and definitely needs more heating or open fires as has a lovely lounge area but not inviting as too cold.

I stayed here for two nights for a wedding. The hotel is very beautiful and the pictures on their website are very accurate. The rooms are very luxuriously decorated and very spacious. The beds are very comfortable. We had the use of the bedrooms on "The Gallery" and the living room/seating area outside our rooms was wonderful, again very luxurious... More

Firstly the staff were rude and unbelievably inconsiderate, secondly was charged for a meal we didn't have and after having discussed with the reception was told I wouldn't be charged. I was still charged and told that ir was not up for negotiation and I would have to pay! Ridiculous and outrageous
