And 4 friendly dogs roaming the grounds to give it that homey... More

This place is just about perfect. Everything is clean, the food is great and just a short walk to the bars in the evening if you want to go out . If you want you can just relax in the grounds. Go see.

Although I have rated very low for the review, this was due to a bad experience having money stolen from our safety deposit box and not the overall experience of the accommodation. I will elaborate further. Upon arrival staff very personable and friendly and we were shown around the Manor House part of the hotel which was built in 1929... More
