I travelled with an elderly companion for a last minute short break in September 2016 which happened to coincide with a freak heatwave! It was a lovely, relaxing break from start to finish. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the food (breakfast is all we can comment on) was great. The room was comfortable and the location is only... More

Although the hotel shows some faded glory, it is clean and comfortable. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The gardens are beautifully kept with immaculate croquet lawns. The Spa Gardens are next door and it is an easy walk into the lovely town. The bistro food is good too. The hotel is dog friendly.

As explained before in previous responses ,we do not have a restaurant as the three rooms overlooking the gardens are often occupied with meetings or functions . As for the shower this is a common problem as very few of the cords are in the same place .Sorry More

Lovely hotel (unfortunately a little run down) set in amazing grounds. Very friendly and helpful staff. Had the opportunity to eat at Turf and surf which offered very tasty bar food. Would definitely go back.

We had an excellent visit this week. It was part of WI's sports week and Maggie Cowman and her croquet colleagues led us in an excellent sports afternoon followed by a delicious afternoon tea. Service excellent. Croquet lawns superb.

We spent a night on our way south. The hotel is well kept and in beautiful grounds. The reception staff were efficient and friendly. Our room was well appointed with a smart, clean bathroom.

I did warm to the hotel after a couple of hours, but unfortunately I was disappointed on arrival. Staff : All staff we some to were very pleasant Hotel : very dated, small rooms, problem with TV not working in room. All the reviews seem accurate on here. This hotel would suit 50+ year old couples.
