Our stay had been a surprise gift so we had no idea what to expect. What a lovely surprise it turned out to be!
The hotel is set in beautiful landscaped grounds well off the main road so there were no issues with traffic noise or even people walking past. The room was beautiful with a balcony overlooking the garden and stream which runs by. Small details like the provision of an ironing board and iron (which I didn't use!) with a hairdryer in its own bag and the turn down service were things which made us feel our needs had been considered. Staff were extremely helpful and the offer of parking our car instead of having to venture out into the pouring rain to do so again made us feel that we were being really well looked after.
Breakfast was generous and offered almost everything you could choose to eat at that time. Dinner was also worth staying in for - though if I have any slight criticism it was that the food was not quite warm enough for my liking. It was obviously well cooked and presented, but arrived warm rather than hot so cooled faster than I'd have liked.
Spa facilities looked as if they would provide welcome relaxation and treatments, but I hadn't thought to book well enough in advance so had to content myself with a swim and sauna. The gym was small but offered a range of the usual equipment - running machine, weights etc.
We'd love to go back here with the rest of the family as it was so clearly a place that caters for all age groups and a range of interests. It was quiet and relaxed and let us reconnect with each other - well worth the money and time!
