This is lovely looking place set in beautiful grounds although we felt the formal gardens could have been a little more extensive and better maintained. We liked the informal wildflower meadows surrounding the hotel, though. The room was very good - very clean and well-maintained. We had an afternoon tea included in our booking, but I got the impression that they had not got a record of that, as they seemed surprised when we turned up in the restaurant for it and had to go off and check. After waiting a while, we were given a seat and a tea, but we noticed that it didn't look a patch on the tea of the other party who were just finishing theirs. I got the distinct impression that we got the leftovers quickly thrown together and it was disappointing.
However, the evening meal was excellent although the place was very quiet and lacked atmosphere. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Overall, pleasant but not outstanding.
