This was a great occasion. The reception drinks outside coincided with dry weather. The meal was of a high standard. Preordered and the table setting cards were coded so meals were delivered to the right place by the diligent, friendly and polite staff. The food was excellent and the wines good. The staff were very helpful at the end as... More

I was totally wrong with my expectations, this was the best 3 course meal I have ever eaten, my Son... More

We visited for the first time. for dinner. The location is close the A48 and is a small hotel with a restaurant. The decor was relaxing and comfortable both in the bar/ reception area, and the dining area. The service was ex Ellen's from well trained staff. The food was imaginative, with well presented starters, mains and deserts. This was... More

What a lovely place. Were made to feel very welcome. Our room was very big and comfortable and we felt rather special having the bed turned down and a chocolate on our pillow each evening it was a lovely touch. The food was delicious. We were more than happy with our stay and would definitely recommend it.

Really don't want to be unkind about The Great House - everybody went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable but sadly it was not without its problems. Our room was in what I guess used to be a barn, or stables, one of four little separate rooms on the far side of the car park - very... More

I had a very pleasant over-night experience in a lovely old building with very friendly people. The breakfast menu was more than adequate and my poached eggs were delivered without delay. My room was quaint but very clean and comfortable
