Stayed here in early July and would definitely not stay there again. The front of house service was dreadful had to go find somebody to check us in when we arrived whom we found after knocking on the kitchen door and the same when we left and we saw this happening with other guests as well. Our room was so disappointing decor wise dull and drab and very badly laid out definitely not worth the money. As our room faced the back of the house we were awoken both mornings very early with deliveries and staff arriving in cars and slamming doors. Breakfast was just ok and on the second morning my husbands fried egg was half raw. It seems Catherine is putting all her energies into the cookery school and has taken her eye off the ball in the guesthouse.
