We were lucky enough to win a short stay at the Great House Hotel, and following our stay there, we would definitely return in the future. The staff were genuinely friendly and extremely helpful - nothing was too much effort. We have two very young children and every effort was made to accommodate them in the bedroom and restaurant for us.
The hotel has tons of character, with exposed beams and big fireplaces and the Manager Mohammed happily explained the history of some of the unusual ornaments placed around the rooms.
Do not miss the chance to dine in the restaurant. The food was absolutely incredible! I had a scallop & fishcake starter (one of the best dishes I've had), fresh Dover sole for the main course and finished off with a souffle - all very delicious!
All in all a great break and highly recommended
