Myself and six friends stayed in the hotel on Satruday night 26th November. This hotel is very pretty and charming and excellent use is made of the original features such as stone walls but has modern features added such as luxury carpets, curtains, lighting etc to make it more cosy. The bar is very warm, welcoming and cosy with very friendly staff. On Saturday night a lady was signing whilst accompanying herself on piane which was very nice. We had afternoon tea in the bar which was of a really high standard.
We attended a cookery demonstration by Paulo Tuillio in the function room at 6.30pm which was very well attended and was excellent. Afterwards we had our evening meal in the function room and whilst the food was nice the ambience wasn't great as there were still chairs laid out in front of us from the cookery demonstration.
As the hotel was full we were placed in the overflow house in an estate within walking distance of the hotel. Whilst this suited a group of seven as we had the house to ourselves I certainly wouldn't have wanted to be in the house if I was on a romantic weekend with my husband. The rooms are very small and practical but the house itself is warm and clean.
We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The grounds are so pretty and there is a photo opportunity around every corner. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated for Christmas.
All in all we had a pleasant experience which was very good value for money and we will probably return in the future.
