We spent 2 nights at Leeming House 2nd and 3rd Nov 2012. Booked via expedia and got reasonable deal. Hotel was in good state of repair and unlike some other country house hotels the rooms etc were up to the standard of the public rooms. On arrival we were upgraded and had excellent garden view with 2 balconies. Room was well proportioned and also had decent size bathroom all of which were well decorated and very clean. They are doing up the rooms in the main block and no doubt they will be excellent but no doubt a little pricey. Our room was conntected to the main building by a very acceptable conservatory. Didn't get breakfast either day (too lazy) but had dinner on Friday and Saturday night. Prior to dinner had drinks in the lounge and picked from the menu at leisure with a bottle of very good wine (£28). Food was very good, especially the starters, but maybe a little on the expensive side, dinner on 1st night was £90 for 2, but we did have 2 bottles of that very good wine and both had steaks. 2nd night was much more reasonable at £65, limited to 1 bottle of that excellent wine. The grounds are in excellent condition and well cared for and you can walk down to the lake. I come from the area and was visiting family, but if just visiting you will find lots to do within reasonable distance. The staff were excellent and without fault.
So all in all would definetly go back and no problem in recomending the hotel, but it is towards the top end of the price bracket but from our experience it was worth it.
