We stayed one night which was bought as a Groupon deal - £109 for dinner, bed and breakfast, with prosecco and truffles in room on arrival. The receptionist was very friendly on arrival and we were given room 314 for our stay. The room was spacious and nicely furnished - bathroom was also good size. However the room definitely needs to be redecorated (it appears that there was at some time water damage and the wall paper is peeling and stained in some parts of the room). I think the hotel should really repair the decor before putting guests in that particular room but it did not spoil our stay in any way. We had a lovely meal in the Orangery restaurant and the service was excellent with very friendly and attentive waiting staff. The food was really excellent. Breakfast was bit more hit and miss. Was buffet style and the bacon and blackpudding etc needed to be crisper instead of steaming away and soggy in the metal urns/trays. We really enjoyed our stay and loved the hotel, even if it is looking a bit tired in some areas. The service throughout the hotel was excellent and we're definitely looking forward to our next stay although we'll request a different room next time for sure.
