Booked with a Groupon voucher which included Cream Tea, Overnight Stay and Breakfast in the morning. The room was impressive and comfortable, staff were lovely and the food was very good. Overall a great stay- would recommend if you wanted to spend the night somewhere special.

Wow, it was a hike to Room #52, but worth it when we got there. Beautiful views of the grounds and a very well decorated if a little tired large room and bath. Comfortable bed and adequate heat. The complimentary robes were soft and warm. The only thing that this room would greatly benefit from is a mini-bar. We brought...

This place is huge and there are of course no lifts so make sure you pack lightly! Our room was probably the furthest away from the reception possible but worth the hike once we were there. Gorgeous four poster bed, nice size bath/shower out in the main room but with a curtain should you want privacy, writing desk, seating area...

Stayed one night. Lovely huge comfortable emperor bed. Lovely surroundings. Most of the staff on hand were knowledgable and helpful except when we asked to check out 30mins later & were told we'd be charged £25 for the privilege (so we declined) Restaurant food and service was superb. Lovely steaks! Highly recommended. Overall and good stay
