Just had a 1 night stay on a Groupon deal, lovely suprise, we were upgraded to Bridal suite, do ask for an upgrade when phoning, you might get lucky. great grounds, lovely old building. had a picnic in the grounds under a tree.weather was a bonus. great pub at the end of the drive, (holly bush) 5 minutes walk. lovely real ales.
Dinner was lovely. then sat outside and had a drink in the garden, It was a real summers night,
slept very well in the big four poster bed, very quite with windows open. free standing bath, a shower would have been nice, only a hand held 1 over the bath. not a critisism just personal choice,
Parts of the hotel seem a little tired, but clean and very comfortable, I really can not fault this hotel, staff lovely and helpful.
We will be coming back for a further visit.
