The staff are wonderful, the menu is very small, in fact we were encouraged to eat out. Our room was room 9 in the loft. Now I am 6'5". If I had been 5' 9 or 10" maybe things would have... More

I was prepared for having to find somewhere to eat as we had been warned that the kitchen would be very busy when we booked. The staff welcomed us and from the moment we arrived they... More

I asked if I could have one lower down and was offered an alternative with no difficulties. Had a bar meal in the evening. Very nicely presented, good quality food. Needed new batteries for the remote control in the... More

A great location with beautiful views over the valley - a quite majestic building with suitable outdoor seating areas. A comfortable hotel with very pleasant staff. Masses of parking available. Rooms are decorated in authentic style to complement the age of the house. We had a 4 poster bed - a little small - but cosy. Old sash Windows, but... More
