My daughters wedding on 30th July was very efficiently managed from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and we were very professionally looked after throughout the day. The food was delicious, attention to detail and organisation were perfect and the rooms were beautiful and spacious. It was lovely to relax in the spa area the morning after. Every... More

The room was huge, nicely decorated and very comfortable with a bathroom with a separate shower and bath, good bedding and towels, etc. It was a warm evening so I had dinner on the terrace, the service was good and the food was also...

Very nice setting, quiet, but very dated. you won't be disappointed but neither will you rave about either the hotel or the service. On the plus side an excellent sauna, small gym swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) free to guests.

Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us. I am pleased that you enjoyed the complimentary use of our neighbouring leisure centre but a little disappointed you considered the hotel to be dated.

Lovely location, country house in picturesque grounds. Could be viewed as a bit tired, or maybe it just wears it's history. Was disappointed to find my double aspect room overlooked the car park on both sides - more shocking I think too the driver who saw me in my underwear! Beds soft but comfy, The spa with outdoor heated pool,... More
