The location of this hotel is not ideal for business travel as there is nothing that close to it, so not recommended unless you have plenty of time or would like the peace and quiet it gives.
The Hotel on first impression looks amazing, set in beautiful landscape and well designed, sadly it does not live up to the opulence it suggests
The rooms are what you would expect, are clean, well appointed but in the heat there is not air conditioning and so if you get a room with only one window that will open you well swelter
The restaurant and bar look good, wine and beer are priced at a level to be expected.
The Food in the Orangery is not good value and to be honest (having eaten here twice) was quite bland. My friend ordered a steak that struggles to live up to the title and you have to pay for the potatoes, which seems a cheap tactic for making the steak seem more reasonable value, than it actually is
The Staff in the Bar and the Restaurant are very pleasant and whilst there was on one of the two evenings, some poor service with a number of tables getting the wrong meals! They general are professional and courteous.
We asked for the possibility of a bag meal as we had to leave before breakfast, but a number of excuses were made. Though the next night when staying at another hotel this was offered without the hotel staff being asked.
All in All, its a lovely location for walks, but feel that it is not somewhere I would rush to, either on business or to explore the local area.
