We had originally booked a "Superior" room in the main house, but got ..... no four poster beds were available APPARENTLY, and so we were DOWNGRADED to a standard room in the courtyard! The staff were extremely disorganised and did not offer anything to make things better... Needless to say, we had a terrible stay.

We stayed here on a Travelzoo voucher. I called the hotel prior to booking the Travelzoo voucher and the lady who answered the phone was extremely polite and helpful. I explained we were staying for our 10th wedding anniversary and that the hotel we had gotten married in seemed uninterested in catering for us. She recommended one of the four... More
