As (almost) every other reviewer says, this is a great place to stay - comfortable accommodation, fair prices (ours was a 'Spring Break' offer, with unexpected chocs and wine included !), and very good food indeed. We stayed in the main building, so can't comment on the 'gatehouse' about which others have written enthusiastically. We had a 'family suite' (room five) - two bedrooms joined by their (shared) en-suite bathroom/shower - and very nice it was, too with views over the garden to the road, and beyond to the 'gatehouse', a short walk away.
Of the three dinners and three breakfasts we consumed, two dinners were from an 'early bird' menu with fixed-pricing, and were excellent value. On our final evening, we chose from the main menu, paid a little more and, apart from a wider choice, had the same great quality food. Drinks prices seemed more modest than most hotels - and there were non-dining drinkers ijn the bar, too - a good sign. Car parking is free and plentiful (for the modest size of the hotel) and, even on the two evenings when there were 'clubs' meeting in the conservatory dining-room, there still seemed adequate space.
Two minor concerns: one very minor, indeed, and that's 'signage' which would benefit from improvement, or even provision in some places. 'Bedrooms' might be sensible on one of the two solid doors from the Reception area leading, as it does, to a steep staircase to all bedrooms in that building (the less-ambulant should note). At right-angles to this unmarked door is another similarly-blank door, which leads down two steps (unsigned) into the (smaller) dining-room, so 'Dining Room' or something similar on this one, and something warning about the steps, too?
More of a concern is that both these solid doors led to (very) minor collisions during our stay: on one occasion, I was hit by the opening door from the dining-room, and on another, I hit someone else with the 'bedrooms' door as I opened it into the Reception area. No real damage, but worth some attention. (The other staircase from bedrooms to the bar area is glazed which helps.)
Would we go again? You bet, if only to solve the mystery of the sauce on the spaghetti under the salmon, which recipe I didn't manage to obtain this year - and which I am commanded to prepare and provide at home !
If you have ANY mobility concerns, telephone and discuss them: all the staff we met were very custom...
