The building itself is spectacular and full of character, and the location is quite stunning, surrounded by amazing views and scenery. All the staff we dealt with managed to be the right balance of highly professional (as you'd expect of a fairly upmarket hotel) but also very friendly and helpful. Barman Kris was very attentive, though it was a shame there were no proper real ales available, as this kind of country hotel should always have a local brew on tap!
We didn't use the restaurant other than for breakfast but that was very good indeed - I liked the buffet option which meant we could have as much or as little of each ingredient as we fancied! The room (6) was very comfortable and luxurious with terrific views and a lovely big bed. All in all it's not cheap, but you feel like you're getting what you pay for! It's a great place for a luxury treat to get away from it all.
If I had to find a quibble (and it's only a very minor one): the hand dryer in the gents by the bar wasn't working which left me scrabbling around for loo roll to dry my hands, and before that the lights went off in the same loo while in use and left me in pitch darkness (not sure if this is timed or motion activated, but I felt a bit stranded in that cubicle!!)
