The Stanley House afternoon tea experience is very enjoyable- having been a number of times some things remain incredibly consistent. The room in the lounge is light and airy, it's always nice to look out of the window. It is rarely busy but rarely empty. The sandwiches, scones and cakes are usually very good indeed- the scone on this visit...

We stayed here in 2014 for my 30th so I decided to surprise my husband with a night here for his 40th. I booked the fresh start overnight spa package which is good value.

Say in the Manor House, can remember which room but I did get the chance see a number of or rooms when choosing a venue. All the rooms in the Manor House are to a high standard with their own unique style. Would love to stay over again, it a special place.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Stayed in the Woodland Garden building - the room was spotless, very spacious (sofa, huge bed, overhead shower, bath, TV, dressing table with small mirror) and had beautiful, modern decor. We booked into the spa - absolutely spectacular!! The views of the country outside were so beautiful. Only 6 people are allowed at a time...

Had a 2 night stay here. The whole place is gorgeous. The Spa is spectacular, the best we've been to. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The rooms extremely clean and comfortable. Not an expensive place at all but then I'm from Surrey and everything is expensive here!! The breakfast was really good, from cooked to fresh Danish pastries....
