We recently attended a wedding here and loved it. Everything from the welcome to the beautiful bedroom, food, drinks and particularly the staff who could not have been more helpful. My husband and I were also providing the wedding cake and the assistance we received from Thomas was second to none. Would recommend without hesitation!

Very slow service, had almost finished the sandwiches before our drinks arrived. Our table was not cleared after we had finished so we had to stack plates up to make room for our drinks. On the whole the food was ok, nothing special and poor value for money. The atmosphere was good, seating was very low, no good for bad... More

The rooms are incredible. The decor in them is out of this world. We stopped in the baby grand. What is considered one of the cheapest rooms in the house and it was amazing. Walk into a huge bed with beautiful linen and reading chairs. Then a cast iron stair case leading up to a indoor balcony with a massive... More

Went here for afternoon tea. The food was brilliant as was the service. There was a great selection of tea available as well as cakes. The waitress was very helpful and explained everything that was available. Very good especially for the price.

I have now had three encounters with this place - two large business breakfasts in the library and an overnight stay. The hotel is stunning, cool and comfortable. The food good. But the staff. Goodness me. Sort it out management. Lovely friendly people - but poorly trained or understaffed, not observant of people's needs or badly briefed, and in one... More

Attended a small wedding reception here. The old building has character inside and out. The interior was modern and stylish, with seating upstairs above a dance floor next to a (small) bar area. There are other rooms, and it can be a bit of a crush to get to them, but they are nice areas, set up for guests to... More
