The room was a really good size and had a nice view over the grounds. All the staff were very friendly and attentive, especially when we...

Want to get away and feel like you have left the hustle and bustle of the city behind, then this is the place. Opulent and charming decor will be evident throughout the grounds. Service was beyond expectations.

Absolutely amazing time spending my birthday and Christmas at the hotel. In fact it's the second year in a row we have stayed at the hotel because last year was so wonderful. Stayed for three nights and can't wait to book again for this Christmas. The staff are exceptional (especially Robert in the restaurant). He remembered us from last year...

Lovely stay here, room was lovely and bed was super comfy!! Food and party was so much fun although the drinks were very expensive! Bar staff were very lovely and helpful young waiters and waitresses were more interested in fooling around and chatting with each other. Bath and shower looked amazing however our water was freezing cold! Didn't use the...

Stayed for a night the week before Christmas to celebrate a birthday and friends anniversary. The reception was friendly and helpful and the executive room was spacious, clean and beautifully furnished. Dinner in the evening was lovely as was the post dinner drinks nestled by the open fire in the lounge. It was a lovely relaxed prelude to the manic...
