My husband and I stayed at the hotel for a Murder Mystery night which was fantastic! However the rest of the visit was disappointing and frustrating. This hotel is in a lovely setting and the building is beautiful. The room which was on the fourth floor was dated but very clean. Unfortunately the room was unbelievably hot and stuffy with one pathetic fan supplied that we couldn’t get anywhere near the bed due to lack of plug sockets. There was a tower fan in wardrobe but that was broken. We endured a very uncomfortable night with lack of sleep. We needed to leave the hotel early the next morning so decided to have breakfast in room. I booked 8 to 8.15 delivery slot but at 8.25 still no sign. After phoning reception that had no computer system and used walkie-talkie’s the breakfast arrived 10 minutes later! Great! but cutlery is always useful with Full English breakfast! We were forced to eat with teaspoons as we were already running late. There was also one member of the bar staff that was very rude and sexist. We witnessed him insulting more than one of the other guests. This hotel has the potential to be fantastic but is let down by lack of facilities in rooms and some staff that need to go on a course regarding customer service.

Beautiful country hotel

This was our second stay at this hotel. This time for just 2 nights for our 15th wedding anniversary. We are Platinum Accor and we had the same suite room as we had on our previous stay. Last June. (On the top floor -44 steps) Last time we met the lovely Solveiga (Sol), we thought she was amazing then, she’s absolutely outstanding now!! What a superb member of the team. Unbelievable check in, welcome and we even had a bottle of fizz in our room. Grounds are gorgeous with a river trickling through. I lay on the grass and it was so peaceful . More chairs / benches would be nice. My only gripe is that it would be nice if the spotlights that make the building look beautiful on a nighttime could be turned off before 6am as they shine straight in the bedroom window - it might also reduce the electricity bill. Just a reminder and it clearly mentions this on the website - there are no lifts and no air conditioning. (So if your are like my husband and like to pack loads of stuff be prepared to haul it up the stairs ! : in all fairness we were asked if we needed assistance) The small village is pretty with a small shop and about a 1.5 mile walk to a pub. The sunsets from the patio are absolutely stunning. Very nice walks close by.

Good stay
