This is an old manor house. It is a lovely old building with many of the original features in the reception area and public rooms. It also is in a quiet setting and attractive grounds. The added rooms are comfortable and have all you need for an enjoyable stay. There are leisure facilities too with a good size swimming pool.... More

Weekend break. Good hotel for relaxing weekend . The staff, without exception, were faultless. All meals were great, especially restaurant evening meal. Used the gym and pool, the fitness centre manager was really helpful. Thanks, we would happily be back again.

The bread used for the sandwiches had turned hard on the outside like they had been sat out for a while, not freshly made as advertised. There was only a choice of two sandwiches, egg... More
