Superb location. Great views. We stayed here for the weekend as friends were getting married. Great idea to have everything under one roof. Breakfast was OK, wedding breakfast catered for all food tastes. Plenty of food. Hotel staff very friendly & very helpful. Shower not the hottest, but adequate. Would stay here again.

We married at Alison House on a weekend in June 2010 with our close friends and family around. We hired the hotel for the full weekend exclusively for ourselves and guests. On booking the hotel we were told it would cost £2000 for the hire of a marquee, we did not not want a large plastic white marquee spoling the atmosphere or the fantastic gardens and views of the lovely old house, but that was what we got so pictures had to be re-thought! not a great start. As the weekend progressed it did get better the food was lovely and the chef was only too happy to help, the BBQ on the friday was a great hit with all guests and the wedding breakfast choosen by ourselves was very well done. The staff stayed with us throughout the weekend and they were all very helpful and polite nothing was too much. The Arkwright suite was wonderful, a roll top bath in the largest bathroom ever seen in a hotel and fanastic picture perfect views, again spoilt by a large white plastic marquee. I would recommend this lovely old house for any couple wanting to get married only if you do not want a marquee like us find out if it will be there, or if you do and have a large party you will be charged for it and it would be there anyway!

Our friends that we spent the weekend with stayed in the cottage next to the hotel it had mixed smells of dog cigerettes and damp.The decor was of a sale room,awful.
Our room was just big enough to swing a cat but you needed to be very clever to use the hair dryer in conjunction with the mirror as the only mirror was in the bathroom but the plug was in the bedroom.
The shower mat had seen better days and general standards were well below those of what is expected in a guest house let alone a hotel.
On booking we expected we had vacate our room by eleven but a sign in the room made it quite clear we had to vacate our room by ten-no great loss as we wanted to be away just the breakfast to look forward to as it stated how wonderful the local sausages and bacon was.
the breakfast was swimming in some liquid after three requests for extra toast we eventually recieved some but my wife after requesting mustard on two occasions gave up.The sausages weighed up our weekend in this hotel,so very dissapointing

A lovely hotel, very chilled, and so friendly nothing was too much trouble. we stayed in the annex in a small room which was quaint and cosy. Every room is difference and as we were in a large party we checked all the rooms out,the hotel is like a rabbit warren as there is many staircases and ways in and out, which all just adds to its charm.
The Whole hotel is kept spotlessly clean and rooms are cleaned daily with new towels but i am sure if you needed anything you would only have to ask.The breakfasts put many hotels to shame, there was plenty of choice and could do anything you really wanted.
you can also hire the whole hotel and if i lived nearer to it i would !!!!!!
