The wedding venue was great, the garden beautiful, the staff very friendly and helpful. The food was brilliant, and plenty of it, the room where the reception was held was decorated beautifully, and it also had a spacious dance floor. We are a family of 4 and booked to stay the night, the temperature outside was 36 degrees, and fortunately... More

Good sized rooms but real bonus for Ashburton is that it is not on the main road - so a very quiet hotel. Morning breakfast was good, I booked bed & breakfast so made the most of buffet breakfast. Cost was good for the standard of room which looks like it has been renovated recently. Overall, an excellent stay!!

Stayed here on a weekend night after a long drive from South. The room was dated but very clean. It was very quiet and I had a great sleep. We had a meal in the dining room this was also very nice an d in our budget.

Absolutely beautiful. We have enjoyed every moment staying here. Our room was perfect. A wonderful array of food for breakfast which we enjoyed overlooking the very beautiful gardens. The gardener should be highly commended. The staff have all displayed a high standard of service and they are all very friendly & helpful.

We went for a weekend for an 80th birthday party and the hotel had excellent food, and excellent customer service. Our queries were answered swiftly and satisfactorily. Friendly, helpful staff everywhere, serving breakfast, dinner, cleaning staff. We could sit outside our room facing a park and there was a huge bunch of daffodils growing outside each room that took the... More

We stayed at this hotel last weekend. We had active children, it was perfect for them. A sunken trampoline outside our window in the garden, swimming pool, and at night we did not have drag coats to go out in the cold, as it was a 2 minute walk indoors to the restaurant. Staff were very pleasant. It was a... More

Excellent reception service and the room is large, comfortable and has a great outside to view - either goldfish swimming in a pool or on the other side, a beautifully cultivated garden! Food is top quality and well cooked.
