We stayed here for two nights over Valentines day in the Tower Suite.
Room: Very spacious, warm and comfortable. We had a bedroom and a lounge area both of which were decorated in a early 20th century style. View from window and tower room were lovely - looking out over the snowy tops. Shower was powerful and warm. Bath was next to bed in bedroom which was odd but quirky. Overall a pleasant and attractive room.
Service: All staff were very pleasant and accommodating. They were all female with no males seen at all? Woman with white blonde hair (possibly Naomi?) was bubbly and really made us feel welcome. Laura, whom we met on arrival was very helpful and accommodating. All other staff, although we do not know their names, were kind and friendly.
Food: Apart from the breakfast which we had both mornings and thoroughly enjoyed, (continental and full English available) we also had a bar meal our first evening and the Valentines menu our second.
Pub meal was excellent with fast service and a warm atmosphere with a crackling fire in the background. Wide range of drinks available. Food reasonably priced and lovely desserts!
Valentines meal was 4 courses for £20.95. We both had red pepper soup for starter, steak for him and a bacon wrapped stuffed chicken for her, sticky toffee pudding and white chocolate cheesecake for dessert followed by tea and homemade chocolates. Cannot fault any of it. Portion size was, if anything TOO generous as we were stuffed afterwards. Service throughout meal was attentive and polite. Atmosphere was lovely with hearts hanging from the window and romantic music playing. Would recommend the food to anyone as there was a good choice for each course and it was very well priced for the quality and quantity received.
Overall, we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nent Hall and hope to return, perhaps when weather is better as road to get here was quite treacherous in the bad weather!
