My husband and I stayed overnight and dined in the restaurant. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. The staff were courteous and the service was faultless. Our room was of a high standard. The lounge and bar area had an open fire with plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs to relax in. Plenty of country house character. Peter, the... More

On arriving we were ushered into the lounge where we were told to wait for someone to serve us a drink as we were a little early. 45 minutes later and having asked four times for assistance we were asking again. When finally given some attention we... More

This hotel was fantastic. We stayed for one night for my partners birthday and were not disappointed. We booked the luxury one night stay via Off Peak Luxury and it was superb. We got an upgrade due to it being my partners birthday and the room (or should I say suite) was superb. Lots of lovely touches and a fabulous... More

Checked in with my Mum last Friday for her wedding on the Saturday. We had a fantastic time starting in the spa, then relaxed in our spacious and very comfortable bedroom before having the most superb dinner. The staff are so kind and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The day itself was fantastic and enjoyed by everyone from... More

We were greeted by a bottle of champagne and chocolate coated strawberries.I was very excited to see the hot tub sitting outside in the garden. The room was beautiful, very... More

We have just returned from a very relaxing break. There were many positives about our stay ,the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, the hotel itself is beautiful and our room (the garden room was exceptional- the bed was huge, the bathroom gorgeous and the hot tub was the icing on the cake). The spa however is very small. The... More
