The location, the facilities, and the service are nothing short of wonderful.

Over a week-end I only heard someone's mobile phone ring once. Interruptions from outside this sanctuary just don't belong.

The accommodation is lovely with the exception that the upstairs spa baths make such a racket it's impossible to sleep if you have a ground floor room. We stayed 2 nights and were surprised to find that the dinner menu, which is a 7 or 10 course degustation menu, was the same both nights. Whilst the food was exceptional, we didn't feel like repeating the same thing two nights running so asked chef to create something a little different and less substantial for us. This was done but we felt a bit awkward in asking and feel they should have catered better for people who don't wish to have two identical meals on both nights of their stay. We cycled into Montville on one day, which was lovely but found that there was little to do at the hotel, it's best used as a base for touring rather than a destination in itself. I think that a little more polish from the staff and a more varied restaurant menu, such as a la carte to complement the degustation menu, would turn this from a 4 star into a 5 star experience.

Elegant everything - accommodations, service, swimming pool, gardens, the food. The food is outstanding, and the chef, kitchen staff and restaurant manager are a real team of creative professionals who undeniably love their work. We did the Italian cooking class with Chef Cameron Matthews and it was brilliant.

It's rare you can find a place that meets and exceeds your every requirement. This place does. The location, service and food are superb. The staff including David, Sam and Cameron are great. We had a very relaxing few days and would recommend it to anyone who needs some time out. We will be going back for sure.

What a glorious place; the decor and room is second to none. The location is quiet, serene and beautiful; the staff friendly and warm whilst being very professional (thanks Kate). It's not cheap but others charge like a wounded bull without delivering; Spicers delivers in spades. Also, Careen, masseuse, is one of the best. Definitely first class and worth another visit.
