The hotel is set in a beautiful location but the room was clean, but no more than comfortable, The bed was a bit hard and some of the lights didn't work. One of the windows didn't close properly. My favourite part was the breakfast, which was excellent. My least favourite part was the other noisy guests, although granted, not the... More

We stayed at the hotel for a friends wedding and couldn't have been more impressed! Especially with the staff. Everyone from the duty manager to the reception staff and the bar/waiting staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Every member of staff who walked past us greeted us which is a lovely touch. The hotel itself is beautiful, my only small... More

The location is quite remote, so be prepared to be around 20 minutes drive from anything else. But then the arrival has the 'wow' factor; stunning grounds and nice building. Unfortunately, beyond the setting, it's a fairly average, but good, hotel. The bedroom is very comfortable (big firm bed), and the fixtures and decor seems well maintained. Had dinner at... More

We stayed here for two nights to attend a local folk day. We were given the VERY small room 102 and despite querying the room as we were not on a special offer and staying for two nights over a weekend , we were not offered an alternative room. It felt as if we were intruding on the wedding as... More

Great place to stay. Rooms were really nice and modern. Food was wonderful and not expensive. Even have a Par 3 golf course, not the best of greens, but great fun. The hotel is in beautiful grounds, and there are local pubs in the village where u can have something to eat and drink. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.... More

I went with the husband and another couple. Hotel in lovely countryside location and is a big old house. Rooms are in a modern block nearby. We were allocated our rooms with our friends on the first floor and us on the ground floor. The room was small with a small double bed. Off went the husband to see what... More

My experience is that De Vere venues can be hit and miss; this one is a definite hit. They have managed to retain some of the grandeur of the old manor, while modernising the interior to create quite a luxurious hotel. Rooms are large, meeting rooms good, excellent shower, huge comfortable bed and good food. The grounds are nice to... More

An average hotel popular as a conference venue. Good news is that the internet is free (although strangely accessed via a supermarket website). Worst part is finding the hotel- don't trust the hotel directions, they are wrong and forget the sat nav - the post code will not take you to the hotel. You would think somebody at the hotel...

The approach to this is stunning and you think crikey this is posh. Looks like a stately home. The car park is at the side of the property with a short walk to the reception area.
