Stayed for a night with my new man and really enjoyed it all. We had a beautiful room in the main building with a bay window looking out on the lake which was clean and well kept, although there were a few small things that needed some attention - scuff marks, peeling paint etc. I enjoyed walking around the grounds and playing chess and petanque and it really did feel like a relaxing getaway. I liked that it wasn't a big anonymous hotel with spa etc. The highlight of the evening was the amazing dinner we had in the Garden Room - best meal i've had all year. See my separate review. The one thing that wasn't so great was service, which was well intentioned if a little amatuer, and I didn't get a clear feeling of there being someone in charge of it all. At one point we were sitting in the bar area waiting to be served and the barman stood behind the counter polishing glasses and ignoring us. When we did eventually get our drinks, he forgot the tap water I had ordered and neglected to use coasters or put out bar snacks (if I'm paying £10 for a cocktail, I expect olives or peanuts). These are small things, but make a big difference for the customer's experience.
