This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The building is grand and historic, but still feels very cosy and welcoming. It is in absolutely immaculate condition throughout and is set in lovely grounds with a beautiful pool. Our bedroom was airy, very classy, perfectly turned out and extremely comfortable.
Service throughout our stay was exceptional from everyone we encountered – personal, friendly and helpful – nothing was too much trouble, and everything was undertaken to the highest standards.
Food at breakfast and dinner was amazing and incredible value, nightly musical entertainment was high quality and non-invasive and everything was set out beautifully.
The only imperfections I noticed were the noise from the road outside when by the pool, and a shower that made the bathroom floor wet - certainly nothing to dent the overall impression I got from the hotel.
The management and staff of this hotel should be extremely proud of what they have achieved. I would give it 6 stars if I could; it really is so good.
