This is a relaxing well-appointed house hotel with roomy lounge and living areas. Decor is excellent and the grounds interesting although a bit unkempt. The high quality art creates a special atmosphere and a relaxing lounge allows for mixing with other guests and watching TV. The hotel is child friendly with a well-equipped children's play room. The bedroom was quiet and well designed with a lovely Japanese feel. Unfortunately the bed was well below standard - hard and uncomfortable and my wife developed back pain as a result. This is a major negative and is the main reason we would not consider a return visit. Housekeeping was poor - room left dusty, bed poorly made up, shower jell and shampoo not replaced. Evening meal was a major disappointment. I had asked for no peppers as I explained I have an allergy to them. The main fish dish arrived smothered in peppers and I had to wait 15 minutes for a replacement by which time my wife had finished her dish - very poor service. Neither of our meals were in any way special although quite expensive. The menu was misleading - chicken casserole turned out to be chicken curry! The breakfast was OK but several items on the menu were not available. We wanted to love this hotel but despite its many positive elements we left disappointed.
