Stayed here for two nights with the family on a vacation in the UK, and had a very nice experience.
My wife and I had a very nice room overlooking the gardens in the back which had a fantastic view and furnishings, and the added benefit of multiple windows to cool down the room given the recent heatwave. Amenities in the room were very up to date as well, including a room safe and iron/ironing board. I always appreciate it when a heritage/country estate-type property has the same features you get used to and want to see in a modern professional hotel.
Our children's room was a little cramped and not quite as nice facing the front of the house, but still a very nice setting and no complaints. The pool is a little small and covered in leaves, but the property is exceptional.
Only minor complaint is the service in the restaurant for breakfast (see my restaurant review as well). They were rather slow to take orders for hot breakfasts (we had already finished our continental once before they asked if we wanted anything else) and not tremendously friendly. But, not a big issue. Overall a very nice hotel.
