Six of us went on the weekend spa break and it was lovely. The rooms were clean, comfy beds and plenty of space and storage. The reception staff were hilarious as they had all clearly been to 'reception school' but were helpful. The concierge were really friendly and helpful and the spa treatments were lovely. Lots of loungers by the... More

When I hear the term country house hotel, I think of space and tranquility with room to breath and think. The hotel has a good level of decor and the room was well appointed. But I get the feeling that too much is being crammed into too small a space. Yes, as everybody says, the spa and the pool were... More

Lovely hotel, nice setting, lovely buffet breakfast. Rooms good size. STaff generally nice but my key didn't work first time and had to wait ages for it to be rectified as only one person on reception and other staff just walked by. Would like to go back to take full advantage of the setting.

The room was very nice, elegant and spacious, full of light with a fantastic view over the garden from the two windows. The bed was a king size bed and the room was very peaceful so I slept like a...
