I stayed here last minute for 2 nights on a business trip, and had read the reviews on here and as always, I went with an open mind. I was very pleasantly surprised.
The receptionist was friendly whilst checking in, I was directed to my room in the separate building which was bright, clean, modern and spacious. It was very quiet too which I enjoyed. It had a fab big bathtub as well as a separate shower.
I went up to the main hotel for dinner in the restaurant, I ordered a glass of wine which was lovely, the beetroot starter which was a big plate of thinly sliced beetroot overlapping & covering the plate (more than enough for one, in fact I had it the night after as well it was so good and shared it this time with a friend!) with chunks of goats cheese and walnuts sprinkled over it, delicious. The main meal of grilled fillet of sea bream was delicious, plenty of potatoes and I ordered an extra side of veg, can highly recommend it. All the staff in the restaurant were very polite and friendly.
The second night I had a drink in the bar first, cool quirky bar, would have been nice to have a few more comfy seating areas, rather than stools, as the only comfier area was reserved. Loved the decor in the main house, mixing the modern with the old style building.
Breakfast was also good and offered everything you really needed.
My only negative was that there wasn't any bottles of water available in the rooms, tea & coffee was however provided. Bearing in mind this part wasn't attached to the main house, or near a shop, I had to ask for and pay for a bottle of water after dinner to take back to me. A basic requirement for me.
Lovely setting and grounds, I can imagine it being even nicer in the warmer weather being able to enjoy the outdoors.
Thank you very much, I would definitely come back.
