I stayed here last year and was very disappointed, however having just stayed for four nights I am impressed at the improvement. I really enjoyed my stay and particular thanks to the reception staff who were polite and helpful ( unlike my last visit). Rooms were clean, spacious

My partner and I attended the recent ‘Comedy Night’ held at this hotel. Surprisingly, the very talented Tom Binns, who has had his own TV sitcom and plays many roles, (including Clinton Baptiste in Phoenix Nights), arrived at this function as himself, and finally as his best

Thank you for your comments and I can appreciate your frustration, controlling other guests that have consumed too much alcohol is never an easy task. The Duty Manager has been spoken to regarding this but ultimately comments made by the staff can be easily ignored by customers. I am sorry if this tarnished your night somewhat but I hope you enjoyed other aspects of the evening. We have also received a complaint from the couple that were asked to leave. It seems comedy nights always leads to issues we have therefore decided not to hold any more in the future. Regards, Andrew.

Denis, thank you for your review and positive comments. We recognise how important a fast stable internet connection is and that's why we have our own leased line for customers to use. Room 5 is located in an original building adjacent to the hotel which has 10 rooms, this building dates back to when the original manor house was built and does have the odd creak if guests are above but this should not have impacted your stay too much, never the less this will be investigated along with your other comments. Should you stay with us again please ask to be located in the Georgian accommodation where you have stayed previously. regards, Andrew

This looks a beautiful hotel as you drive in. Unfortunately when I checked in I had to ask to move rooms twice due to the cleanliness. One room had clearly not been vacuumed, and the second room had not had the toilet cleaned properly. The rooms are ok in general but I would

Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm very surprised that you had to move rooms, our housekeeping staff normally do a superb job and we pride ourselves on our cleanliness which scores highly in the majority of our feedback. I hope this relatively small oversight does not deter you from staying with us again. regards, Andrew.
