          I've only stayed once before. It has a faded glory charm about it. The rooms are ok but the beds are great. You stay here for the location and history more than anything. The dinner portions were very small but the buffet breakfast was fine.

          Stayed overnight on a wet and misty day - pre dinner drinks in the sitting room and warmed up by the fireplace after having a delightful high tea. Dinner and breakfast were good and a visit downstairs to see the lap pool is a must.
