Lovely setting, but if you are NOT attending a wedding at the hotel - forget it! We stayed here to attend a wedding nearby, but we still expected their facilities available to ALL customers!
Advertised "lounge" which was out of commission due to a wedding taking place, and when it was "available" obviously being used to store excess furniture and a place for staff to eat! Bar was tiny area, unmanned, with a couple of bar stools.
Their Restaurant was closed to accommodate a wedding party on the Friday night, so our evening meal was taken in the conservatory, whilst management discussed wedding packages with potential clients at an adjoining table - no privacy whatsover!
Breakfast was in the restaurant on the Saturday morning, and was pleasant and hearty. On the Sunday breakfast was set up in the conservatory to accommodate the number of guests staying over from the wedding parties, this took place amidst the staff setting up for an anniversary luncheon, and amidst the residue of Saturday's wedding party!
This hotel is best used as a base, and comes across as a nightmare at weekends.
Sad, because the hotel has great potential, although the house featured is NOT the hotel, think Crossroads motel attached to the side (out of shot) and you have the hotel.
The food their chef produces is 5star cuisine - had that been rubbish we would have checked out. The rooms are dated, but spacious and clean, and comfortable. Staff lovely, but such a huge disappointment.
