Lovely lunch outside

It was picture perfect happy -- sitting outside for lunch overlooking the lake and lovely gardens. We ordered very good fish and chips and an egg salad sandwich (came with 2 sandwiches! on very good bread). We came here after walking the very scenic trails at Aira Force -- a perfect day out.

I might just run out of superlatives in describing this excellent establishment. It is wonderful in every respect. Rooms are superb, everything is provided and decor is charming. Utterly, divinely comfortable beds. The staff are marvellous, being deferential without being obsequious, friendly without being intrusive and highly efficient. Food is utterly superb, creative, innovative and exciting. Public areas are charming... More

This was a lovely country hotel with really super service. The staff were helpful and the food amazing. However I really fail to understand why they cannot put in some half-decent wifi. At first the lady told me that it may not be available in the rooms but would be available in the common areas. Really this wasn't true...it was... More

If you thought that because this restaurant is out in the sticks the food would be mired in the 1950s you would be very wrong. It is an absolute seasonal delight of beautifully prepared and presented food which intrigues and delights. From amuse bouche on the patio, through several light courses, eg gazpacho with celery sorbet, asparagus with duck egg... More

What a delight to find that in this stunning setting the food is just as good. Time old favourites with a modern twist, very elegantly presented with mouthwatering smells, tastes and textures. No faults? No, not really. And I should mention the unimposing staff that are there when you need them, with a sense of humour when appropriate. We stayed... More

We stayed here at the end of our Summer holiday before returning home. It must have been the hottest July on record.....unfortunately our room did not have air conditioning, the sash windows wouldn't stay open, until I propped one open with the bible in the room.....first time I've used the bible in a hotel room...The general decor in the bedroom...

Couldn't fault our stay here. The rooms were fantastic and the staff superb! Nothing was too much trouble for the reception staff or the staff generally. The evening meal in the restaurant was outstanding. Very high standard and delicious with excellent service throughout. The whole stay was great and we wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

Homely feel to this hotel and friendly staff. Views over the lake are stunning. Recommend paying for mini-deluxe room with balcony and lake view
