We stayed here for one night and had seen mixed reviews, which did cause us some slight concern in advance. However, when we arrived at the hotel we were very impressed with the location, style and ambience. It is in a relatively modern extension to the original historic building, but it was possible to walk through to it and also explore the extensive grounds.
Our bedroom was small – probably reflecting the building’s past use as accommodation for trainee bank managers – but adequate. The bathroom was a good size, and everything was very clean and comfortable. The only downside that arose throughout our stay was a problem with the hotel’s electricity supply, which caused a noisy back-up generator to start up on an almost hourly basis from 4am onwards. This may have been because it was very hot and all the guests using their air conditioning over-loaded the electricity system? The hotel staff were very apologetic for this and assured us that this was a temporary problem which was being addressed.
Breakfast was in a very stylish and light dining room, and of a very good standard. The food was hot and there was plenty of choice from the buffet.
Overall, a very stylish hotel in a beautiful location. We would be happy to return.
