Overall we felt that there was good value here and enjoyed our stay. This is a lovely property that speaks of another era, when estates were more plentiful and elegance was in style. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the overall appearance is stately and refined but not to the point where most people would be uncomfortable. The fact that it is also a golf resort lowers the dress code and the overall ambience and makes this property more accessible to travelers unfamiliar with this type of accommodation.
We had the Hotel's best suite it was comfortable but not ostentatious. There were two small bathrooms and a king bed in the center of the room, with a couch to one side. I did feel that the wonderful view was not featured in this room, however. It would have been nice to have larger windows, but failing this then to place the bed on the hallway wall so that one could at least see the limited view from the bed.
Sound was an issue for us in that the Hotel does seem to crackle and creek through the night with toilet use and other sounds but the most disturbing was the housekeeping staff seemed to park outside in the hallway and talk in loud voices forever. This was obviously not professional and certainly the conversation went beyond anything work related.
Parking is limited and there is no valet service. Getting the luggage up the front steps is a chore, although we did find an employee for this task. The checkin was not crowded but the staff seemed a little preoccupied, nonetheless. The meals were good but not exceptional. The service was excellent, however.
