After 10 years the place is still as wonderful and romantic as it was then. The bridal suite (room 30), food, and overall experience is unrivalled and we now have... More

Breakfast only until 9am so missed second morning, which was a shame as it was lovely the first morning with cereal and table service for cooked breakfast, coffee/tea and toast. Staff were amazing, especially as we noticed they do everything... More

Fabulous place to stay for a wedding. All the staff were polite, courteous and attentive and couldn't do enough to make sure the day went smoothly - in particular the lovely young girl named Carley on the waiting staff who was seeing to our table. The included breakfast was nice and the waiting staff kept making sure we had enough... More
