From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the whole atmosphere of the hotel had us enchanted. The history in the house and gardens has to be experienced to be fully apreciated.
We were only there for one night but got a great taste of what the hotel has to offer.
The approach to the hotel in down a long drive surronded by an avenue of trees, with the hotel looking magnificent at the end of it. Surrounded by a moat crossing the bridge to enter the courtyard you immedietly feel as though you have gone back severel hundred years in time.
As others have said the hotel is very dark, but it's something you expect as the history and mood of the hotel would be spoilt with modern bright lighting.
The staff upoon our arrival couldn't be any more helpful and we were checked in within a few minutes. The large staircase leading up to the top floor where we were staying gave the feeling of something very special, seeing many of the historical items decorating the hotel.
The room we had booked was a feature room, and did not dissapoint, with a large feature bed & cast iron bath we couldn't ask for a more quirky and romantic room.
The decor was just as one would expect, and the original features were in abundence something we couldn't help pointing out to each other all the time.
The restarant was first class, prices are what you would expect from this sort of hotel and also boasts an excellent wine list, dinner for two and a bottle of wine came to £90 which given the level of service & for a special occasion is quite reasonable.
The grounds which surround the hotel are quite fabulous, we enjoyed several walks around the gardens & the park which also boasts a nature reserve where you can see many birds and animals.
I would recomend this hotel to anyone looking for a romantic break away, and please ignore the people slating how dark the hotel is, it's supposed to be like that & just adds to the atmosphere of the place.
