We booked a one night stay well in advance, and got a very good room rate. The reception staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. The room itself was in a block close to the main house. It was comfortable, warm and cosy on a pretty miserable December night.
We didn't eat breakfast or dinner, so can't comment on them. I would be quite happy to stay here again, but maybe try dinner or breakfast next time so that i can get a better look at the wonderful main house.

We took advantage of a De Vere offer and enjoyed the "wine Down" experience.
The main bulding is a Lutyens design and is fabulous. we ate in the main building and both dinner and breakfast were superb - I cannot fault the food or the service.
unfortunately the rooms outside are somewhat quirky and dated - it did feel a little like walking along a line of holiday camp chalets! the bed was comfortable and the room was extremely clean. The bathroom whilst cramped offered a good shower as well as a small bath. I am still trying to work out why there wa an enormous station clock on the wall of the bathroom - totally out of proportion!
the 60s style "banquette" in the bedroom was extremely uncomfortable - and probably had been most of its' life as it was rockhard, but I guess had been there for many years.
That said, don't et my comments put you off particularly if you can get a deal - this was a wonderful short one night break - much needed and much enjoyed.

Stayed for one night while on a business trip to the area. The main building is very grand - Edwardian style magnate's house with lots of wood paneling and fancy ceilings. The accommodation is a little walk away in add-on buildings - all rooms appear to open direct to the outside, so beware if it is likely to rain. My room was smallish but perfectly adequate with a good shower, comfortable bed etc. It was clean and warm despite the cold winter's night outside. The food in the restaurant was very good indeed and my colleague and I had an enjoyable meal. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice. Overall I would happily stay here again if in the area.

My stay here was for a work function. I found the staff on reception to be very welcoming and was quickly in my room. The room was a little small, but had everything I needed and was comfortable with a nice bed.

Myself and a couple of colleagues had late lunch in the bar followed by a meeting. We struggled to get drinks as no-one was staffing the bar so it required someone to go down to the restaurant to collar a member of staff.

We attended a private function at the hotel in the evening, which was well staffed and the food was excellent.

The breakfast was a little disappointing, but I think this is due to the late time at which I attended it.

This was our 2nd visit this year & we had booked the cruise package this time. We got bed, breakfast & dinner, plus a taxi to the port & back, for £189. We then left our car at the hotel for the 2 weeks we were away.
Taxi booked at a time to suit us, we sat with our luggage & got picked up from reception. But the driver would help you with your luggage from your room, if needed. Just rang the taxi firm on our return, once off the ship & had collected our luggage. Taxi was prompt.

Lovely hotel with brilliant staff. In such beautiful surroundings. We especially enjoyed our evening meal & felt the package was good value as the meal was delicious & of such a high standard.
Breakfast buffet good too, with lots of choice.

Enjoyed a couple of swims in the pool, which wasn't busy.

We left our cruise luggage in the car overnight & just took our overnight bag into the room. If you take all your luggage into the bedroom with you, then ask for a ground floor room. room was clean & comfy. Has tea & coffee making facilities but (free) coffee is available at all times, from the coffee room, next to reception.

Will def book this package again, if sailing from Southampton.
