amazing hotel and outstanding grounds for wedding venue, the attention to detail was fantastic, anything we asked was never a problem, the two wedding co-ordinators were excellent and the service we received from breakfast to evening meal was great too, very relaxed and friendly atmosphere would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get married you will love it!!!

We booked for dinner and were very well looked after. The hotel is in a lovely setting and easy to get to and park. We were welcomed and shown through to a comfortable bar area. We never felt rushed and the service was excellent. The menu choice was just enough to not over confuse! The food was well presented, hot... More

Country house hotel, well appointed and with nice touches like the sherry and chocolates in the room on arrival. Liked the four poster, too, in one of the rooms in the main house. Service friendly and helpful; food good but do leave plenty of time for breakfast as it's very slow. Expensive by NE standards (ie about the same as... More

I had afternoon tea with my friend to celebrate her birthday. It was a thoroughly pleasant experience. The food was excellent, all freshly prepared and more than enough for 2 hungry ladies! The tea was particularly good, served in a silver teapot and piping hot and replenished without asking. The presentation and service by the staff was excellent, nothing was... More

Lovely surroundings and building . Staff very polite and helpful . One thing I found was how exceptionally quiet it was mid week . To the point where it was uncomfortable . Just a radio playing some background music would have helped . For some people this might be what they are looking for , so each to their own... More

I've stayed here before but this trip was exceptional. A complimentary upgrade to room 12A helped, with gorgeous views across the gardens the following morning - the room itself was huge, comfortable and the facilities excellent. We dined in the conservatory restaurant - food and wine exceptional and 5-star service. Breakfast back in there the next morning could not have... More
