Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is very well staffed and the food taken in the bar area was fairly good. The grounds and overall feel of the hotel is very nice. However some parts need updating and parts of the hotel could have been better kept. A false fire alarm in the middle of the night did not support stood nights sleep.

My partner and our 9 month old stayed for three nights in December 2016. Front of house staff were friendly and helpful and Andreas the waiter who looked after us in the lounge and at breakfast was also friendly and efficient. The downstairs bar staff could take a leaf out of his book. Food was above average in the bar...

My sister and I recently visited on a Friday to have a Girly Spa Day. This included Afternoon Tea, 2 treatments and full use of the spa facilities. The Afternoon Tea was fantastic - really tasty sandwiches, cakes and scones, plenty of tea and even a glass of prosecco. After we'd had that we went down to the spa -...

Just returned from a 2 day break at this wonderful hotel, from the moment we arrived till we left nothing was too much trouble.

This is a perfectly decent country house hotel, but there's no aspect of it that makes it stand out as special. The public rooms, particularly the bar lounge, are attractive, warm and relaxing and its in pretty countryside. I had one of the rooms at the back, which was quite small, and dark, but those on the front are probably...
