We were slightly apprehensive after reading other reviews, but the stay of one night was excellent. The staff were highly professional, friendly and helpful.
The room was in a great location with amazing views of the gardens. The bathroom was large and very clean but the shower could have used a bit more power. Also, the half inch gap at the bottom of the door let in some light during the night.
We enjoyed a gourmet deal and were not disappointed. The afternoon tea was lovely in the drawing room. The evening meal was well-presented, tasty and filling but we got the wrong bottle of wine despite pointing this out. We were told that the hotel had just replaced its stockist but no-one told us when giving us the wine list. Bit disappointing. The Matfen breakfast was lovely and the Eggs Florentine met with approval.
We spent a couple of hours in the spa area where the Fire and Ice facilities helped chill us out as did the Indian head massage.
It was a bit pricey but no complaints from us other than that. Really worth a night to treat self!
