We arrived a little early and were able to check into one of our rooms which was great. The checkin was fast and staff were pleasant and helpful. They moved our 2 rooms to the main floor from the 2nd floor as my father inlaw has a walker and would have a hard time walking the stairs. The rooms are ok. Decor is dated but has the English country feel. The beds were very comfortable. We had a room with a window overlooking the inner garden. There are two pools one outside and one inside both pools were cool to swim in but still ok.
The gardens and grounds are outstanding. We had supper the first night in the Vintage pub which has a large fireplace and dark wood, it is very cozy and the food and not as pricey as the main dining room. The entire visit was outstanding and we all enjoyed our great stay here. It is a little pricey but well worth it, location is excellent. If you want to walk in the mornings you can cross the street and there is a nice walking trail.
