We have stayed here before and loved it so we returned. If anything it was better this time around. This is an old country house extended very much in style, with public areas totally in keeping with the 17th century building. Beautifully done.
Like so many country house hotels, it thrives on the wedding trade and that was strongly in evidence during our stay. But it didn't stop the staff from taking good care of us. The room was comfortable and reasonably spacious. We were definitely refreshed by our stay.
The restaurant is superb, although a little pricey for the area. Service is willing but a little understated. We asked for a room change and were given one right away.
A car is more or less essential to get around. There's a bus stop outside the gate (which we used last time extensively) but the service has been cut to almost zero and it only takes you to Halifax anyway. There's a lot to see in a car though.
Excellent value at under £100 per night.
