Having been so pleased at the improvements when we stayed last year, we couldn't wait to come back to see if the upward trend was continuing...I think I have to say that our opinions are mixed. Yes the rooms continue to be refurbished which is great, but we visited on a very busy weekend and I can't help but think that there were too few staff on duty for the crowds of people. Whilst our afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks were impeccable - service at both dinner and breakfast was a bit hap-hazard. We waited over 25 minutes for coffee after dinner (which didn't come with the advertised "bon-bons") and the breakfast was disappointing in both range of food on offer and service. The breakfast buffet was woefully under-stocked with a lot of people trying to get to a pretty small selection of food and it strikes me as a bit mean to only include cold options in the price. When you are staying at a grand English Country House I expect the grand English breakfast to be included! However, lack of staff and poor breakfast selection aside, it was a privilege as ever to stay at this remarkable house and if you've not been, I urge you to visit.
