Had a lovely afternoon tea with colleagues which was an enjoyable treat. Given a choice of teas plus a selection of finger sandwiches and cakes. Yum. Highly recommend the freshly made scones and clotted cream. Atmosphere lovely. Definitely would return.

I booked two junior suites at the hotel to celebrate my father's birthday. Apart from sending me an email saying we hadn't booked dinner when we had, the booking and check-in was very good. We had lovely rooms, very comfortable and very large. We even had two roll-top baths in our bathroom! What we thought was odd was that there... More

I stayed for two nights in early January 2014. Service at this hotel is some of the best I have ever experienced. The wonderful service started when I arrived. As soon as the taxi stopped, a member of the front desk staff walked outside to greet me and handle the luggage. Check in was swift and cheerful. Throughout my stay,... More

Dear mariaeadams, Thank you for joining us for a night away and for sharing your thoughts. The team and I are delighted you had a ‘magical’ experience. Our grounds and house are indeed beautiful. The house was built by Fredrick Godman in the 1880’s. Godman was a famous collector and botanist and as such our grounds feature stunning camellias, rhodenodrons... More

We stayed at South Lodge on a short break for two days in early January. I upgraded to a "traditional" suite in the more modern half of the building which was constructed in the late 1990s in the same style as the original 1880s house. We had what would have been, had it not been for the foul weather, a... More

We couldn't have been treated any better. We were made to feel most welcome from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. All staff were genuinely very friendly and helpful. Hotel is modern and plush. Hotel rooms were fantastic.e.g. tv's in bathroom. We would definitely go again particularly if it was a special occasion .
