Stunning historic property in a great location. A few things let this hotel down.
Room descriptions are misleading. We booked a master suite, which although very comfortable and well furnished would be a small king room in any other hotel.
The grounds and pool are beautiful but there is no service by the pool. You have to walk to the restaurant to order a drink which seems a pity as there are plenty of staff stood around doing nothing. We never once saw any member of staff visit the pool area to see if guests wanted anything.
Breakfast is very good but there are a few minor issues that could be easily rectified. If you want any coffee other than filter coffee at breakfast there ia a charge which seems petty.
There are no spoons for cereal or fruit at breakfast and you have to ask for one.
Overall service is rather abrupt and unfriendly but efficient. If you want anything you need to ask. Anticipation is key to good service.
With just the above issues I would rate this hotel 4 however they have one really bad practice which is really irritating in this day and age.
THEY PROVIDE FREE WIFI FOR ONLY 1 DEVICE. IF YOU WANT TO CONNECT A SECOND DEVICE THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT CHARGE.
This is ridiculous when there is a good wifi network and just a way to make more money. I see this as customer unfriendly and bad practice in this day and age.
