Beautiful venue for a wedding. In lovely grounds, away-from-it-all feel, water, ducks. Public areas very high standard, historic appearance, traditional English. Rooms named eg. library, long hall. Great bar with open (gas) fire. My room a little bit so-so - no bath although a big walk-in shower, some decor a bit tired. Food very good. Breakfasts very enjoyable. Newspapers dotted... More

Attended a family wedding held at the hall. Amazing hotel with beautiful gardens and facilities. All organised perfectly and food perfect . From the minute you arrive you are in luxury surroundings, roaring fires making it very homely

Stayed 28/02/2015 for 1 night We came here for a wedding and stayed over. From the moment you arrive you know you are somewhere special. The welcome at reception was friendly and informative and we were soon in our room. We stayed in one of the recently refurbished double bedrooms which was beautifully decorated. The walk in slate shower was... More

This is an old estate which has been significantly modernised, not always very sympathetically. Alot of the central bar areas etc are pretty generic spaces that you could find in any chain hotel. My room was not particularly stylish, but was clean and had a decent bathroom (good shower and good towels). The staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds... More

Stayed here for a wedding. Interesting old building mixed with new extensions. Gardens were beautiful for photographs and just for a 'wander'. Bedroom comfortable if a little on the small side. Shower excellent. We were guests at a wedding and felt well looked after, the staff were friendly and helpful. The food during the day and evening was very good,... More

Something has got lost in the transformations the building is a 13th century house, transformed into a training centre, and now a hotel/conference centre/wedding venue trying to all things to all people and not really exuding competence in any area. Room was big, comfortable, well equipped, good value but with a nasty stain on the bedspread and noisy being opposite... More

When we arrived we struggled to find anyone to check us in. Eventually I stood in the reception area and phoned the hotel. We ate in the bar/dining area as the restaurant was not open. The menu was ok apart from the vegetarian options, spicy bean burger or pasta. I decided on the burger meal........when it arrived it was like... More

On a much more positive note thank you for your kind comments regarding our... More
