Thouroughly enjoyed a 2 night half board stay at this classy, beautiful, stunning, countryside hotel, more a staely home.. Any issue we had with our room was straightened out immediately and we were swiftly whisked to a new spacious, lavish room with the promise of an upgrade to a palacial 4 poster bedroom on our secondday. The room overlooked the front lawn and lake and made the entire trip worthwhile.
We took the opportunity of one of their 4 countryside walks, inside their own vast grounds and trecked in our wellies for ages. The surroundings are stunning, their tree lined, half mile carriage drive with cows and sheep watching you from both sides a joy to view.
Finally, I have to mention the staff.. Victoria is a gem, all the staff were polite and more than enjoy working there, but I have to keep the food until last... amazing, is an understatement.. local produce, top quality, plated perfectly and plenty of it too. Was a great shame the menu remained the same for both nights we were there, but there was adequate choice to make anyway.
Being non drinkers and having read other comments regarding high priced drinks, as we are non alcoholic drinkers, I was concerned their soft drinks would also be pricey, but with a diet coke coming out at a small cost of £2.20 found that very reasonable and the staff had no issue with us ordering a jug of iced "tap" water at dinner on the first night, they brought us another jug on th second night without us asking.
Will we go again, absolutely and are starting to save the pennies again for the next visit.
