The hotel was nice, it was clean. The location was good, as we went out everyday. We took our dog and was able to take her for a walk around the grounds before we left for the day. The room was at the other end of the hotel which required us to walk up 15 stairs along a corridor and down 15 stairs with all of our things and the dog to get to our room - but we found an unalarmed fir door which was very near our room and was open all of the time, which was easier to exit. Our room was basic, a bit old fashioned, but clean. We had a twin room but one of the beds was directly in front of light switches, so when I leaned on the pillow it switched on the lights, had to be careful during the night as it turned on. There was no air con, one fan but it was very hot. The window opened about 3 inches - no other fan was available as ‘ apparently, guests have stolen them. The shower leaked a lot, but couldn’t see where from !!!!!!

First class service, lovely surroundings.

Staff could not help enough from the minute we arrived. Disabled access is rudimentary with no lift. Wheel chair lift to first floor only. Room we had was very dark all day. Pleasant lounge and dining room. Breakfast buffet very good. Did not use restaurant for evening meal as it seemed pricey, which was commented on by several other guests. Other guests on a coach tour also commented on having to ascend many flights of stairs, average age around 70 and some using sticks. Car parking adequate. Overall a pleasant few days. The use of QR codes to order everything a bit impersonal.

Superb short break

Hotel was set in beautiful grounds in a wonderful location offering easy access to surrounding areas. Staff were fantastic. Rooms and all guest areas were spotlessly clean. Food in the dining room was delicious and breakfast was excellent. Will definitely return.

Excellent stay!

Trevor Couples - 09/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is more than satisfactory staff try hard to please. The lack of a wardrobe is concerning as I used this with my partner to travel to meetings afterwards I could not hang up 4 shirts 2 suits and 3 dresses for my partner. The area for what I can only describe as inadequate that is set up as a rail is behind a mirror and above the coffee making equipment. It had 4 hangers and very limited space as well as awkward to get to. Breakfast was good but strange to have to book a breakfast time the day before. Dinner was satisfactory unfortunately the kitchen ran out of the course I required and the served my partner with the wrong fish dish which was rectified no questions asked.

Lovely stay

After a long drive, the welcome and the hotel’s setting lifted our spirits. We then had a walk in the grounds, followed by a drink on the terrace, in the setting sun. Dinner was tasty and the dining room was pleasantly full, but not “shouty”. Our room was very comfortable. Breakfast was again very tasty and served discreetly, but attentively. Throughout the care and attention of all staff was excellent.

Excellent service

Staff wore masks and were very helpful.Felt intimidated in the restaurant cos guests wondering around without masks and tables too close. Very noisy at night time with guests running up stairs and shouting. Dirty toilet seat which we had to clean

Christine S. Couples - 06/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were there during a cold August week and the room was quite cold. The welcoming front desk member of staff was helpful in this matter. The restaurant staff were friendly, polite and helpful especially Antonio, but some of the younger members could do with more training. We had evening meal, breakfast and lunch and were very happy with the food.

Quiet, Friendly staff and well located hotel
