“Wedding Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We held our ceremony and wedding reception at this hotel in March 2013. It was truly an amazing day and an amazing venue

The hotel wowed all our guests. Everyone commented on how lovely every aspect of the day was from the food to the service to the flowers and the harpist. The food was exceptional.

It really was a magical day and one we will never forget! I only wish we could do it all again this weekend!!!!! I can only hope we get invited to a wonderful wedding sometime in the future to come and enjoy it all all over again!

All the staff were fabulous and nothing was too much trouble. The gardens were beautiful , even in the bleak of winter.

Guests that stayed at the hotel all commented on the high quality of bed linen used. We stayed in Apple Tree Cottage for the night of our wedding and that too was fabulous. We enoyed our stay from start to finish. We've ben fortunate enough to be gifted a vochuer to come back and stay again in the furture from a family memeber. We cant wait to return and relive all our wonderful memories there.

I would highly reccommd this as a wedding venue.

The most lovely venue, offering first class service, delicious food, warm and luxurious bedrooms and stunning gardens. We chose the Manor House for our wedding and had exclusive use. We enjoyed the best day of our lives and our guests were all very complimentary, many have suggested they will be returning, as will we!

Popped in here for a drink and some food during a recent stay in the town. The bar was very comfortable but my food in the brasserie was very disappointing. I had the steak which arrived absolutely drenched in a horrible pepper sauce. I normally enjoy a pepper sauce with my steak but this sauce really took the pleasure away. Note to self: Always ask for the sauce to be served separately in future! The service was very good and taking the steak out of the mix, overall we had a nice time with a good bottle of wine.

Thank you for your review and of course I was sorry to read that everything wasnt quite up to our usual standard on this occassion. I am unaware if you spoke to a member of the team regarding your meal but I would be happy to discuss this in person and offer my sincere apologies.

Pleasing to hear that you enjoyed the devilish drinks in the Beagle Bar and overall enjoyed your time with us. Please do get in touch as I would love to make amends!

We took advantage of the Spring offer and booked one night in a four poster room with dinner, bed and breakfast last weekend. An email arrived warning us that the music from the hotel's function room would be playing until after midnight and that we would hear it from our bedroom. We did hear it, but it did not keep us awake, and it was nice that we were basically unaffected by the wedding party other than not being able to use the library for a couple of hours in the afternoon. This didn't matter at all as the bar is also a large, comfortable area in which to sit with a drink and a newspaper. The hotel was fully booked, but no area was crowded during our stay and there was plenty of peace and privacy.
We had room 8, overlooking the courtyard with a lovely window seat. The bathroom for this room is small and nicely appointed, but the only heating in there is an electric towel rail which warms the towels but fails to even take the chill off the bathroom - this is due to the fact that the attractive old leaded window does not close properly so there is a constant and ample supply of fresh air. Great in the summer (maybe?), not good in March! We mentioned it to the staff on leaving, and were assured that it would be seen to. The plain white china on the tea tray was very nice, with tea cups and espresso cups. There was no fridge, but an ice bucket with ice was supplied without fuss.
We had cocktails in the bar which were well-mixed and tasty. Dinner was in the Mulberry restaurant - the ambience was calm and welcoming, and the food was excellent. We had informed the hotel of special dietary requirements in advance, and were impressed with the menu that was printed out and the choices offered. This meant there was no need to have a discussion about ingredients with the waiting staff/chef for every course, which made for a more relaxing dining experience. The wine list suited us well.
Breakfast the next morning was another pleasant meal, this time in the conservatory, with plenty of hot and cold food to choose from.
Checkout was efficient. All the staff were attentive and friendly without being too familiar. The only problem we had with service during our stay was the Nespresso machine in our room did not work properly and in spite of reporting it to housekeeping it was not repaired or replaced.
A warm bathroom and a fridge in the room would have pushed this hotel up to 'Excellent' for us, but we thoroughly enjoyed our mini holiday and will definitely be returning in the future.

I stayed here on a 2 day business course. The hotel is an absolute gem, food was of the highest standard. The rooms felt like a blast of luxury, helped by the Moulton Brown products & high quality bed linen (oh & I loved the personal touch of the rubber duck!). The staff were very pleasant and the service was of a very good standard. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel.

From the moment we arrived, the courtesy and service extended by your staff was exceptional. Check in was a breeze, the room was fantastic and attention to service and detail around the entire hotel was permanently on display. Pre-dinner drinks in the bar were delightful and made all the more pleasant with the exemplary service and treatment we received from all staff, especially Lisa Taylor, Ali and Katie on reception and James in the restaurant. They exuded professionalism and made us feel their only goal was to ensure we received excellent service and have an enjoyable stay which continued from all of the staff we encountered. Our meal in the restaurant was exceptional, wine was superb, staff courteous, engaged and knowledgable, topped off by a member of reception retrieving her own make-up wipes for me to use as I had forgotten my own. Breakfast the next day was a delight and again Lisa demonstrated the kind of attention to detail that is so rarely seen, greeting us by name, showing us to our table and making menu recommendations from a clear knowledge of your offerings. We had such an enjoyable and positive experience that we shall most definitely return.

We arranged a 50th birthday celebration for 5 couples, including a meal and overnight stay. The hotel staff were helpful and efficient throughout. The restaurant put together a really nice menu for us and the food was great, with some quite novel ingredients and dishes. The bar was modern and well decorated, and there was plenty of room for the 10 of us to sit together with drinks before dinner. The library was a great place to sit and relax by the fire after dinner. Breakfast in the conservatory was also excellent. Try the kippers!
