Beautiful hotel and beautiful grounds. Myself and partner wee invited along as part of family 60th birthday party/celebration. The service cannotbe faulted by any of the staff. In fact I would say it was exceptional. We had a large room overlooking the river with a massive king size bed.
This place hasa fascinating history as a lot ofthe Hammer horror films were filmed here, as were the St Trinians and others. The only down side was the bar prices for the cocktails. £9 for a small cocktail. The kitchen staff very kindly produced a vega mal for me (it had been asked for in advance). Unfortunaately, my meal was abit of a let down. The onion soup was the consistency of baby food and didnt really taste of onion. The main course was a mushroom risotto which was so bland. It had no flavour at all. The pudding was the best, a plate offruit, very decoratively presented. There was nothing really for a vegan to eat from the bar menu either. But I did have a bowl of lovely three times cooked chips.
At breakfast the next day, again, the kitchen staff were most accommodating in coking some of my vegan bacon for me. All in all, a very good experience in a beautiful setting in a ple with charachter. I felt they could have made more of their filmic past. Perhaps a few photos around of scenes from the films at the place where the scene took place. ould we go again? Probably not. But nonetheless, an interesting experience.
