Cannot fault hotel for its location and views. Beautiful 17th century Manor hotel, and it snowed whilst I was there, so you can imagine how beautiful it was.
However for a 4* country manor hotel I was expecting a lot more. The room itself was nice, but the little things you notice when your travelling a lot.
The shower curtain for instance was stained, in a hotel like this I would have expected a glass door, or even a brand new clean curtain, but stains is not what I expected.
The telephone (which I know is not something important, but looks can mean everything) was an old fashioned cream/old phone that just looked cheap and nasty against the room decor.
I arrived late on the Sunday and this hotel is a little bit to the nearest restaurants etc so was thinking I would order room service. I expected the room service to be over the odds but then they charge an additional £5 per tray service which I thought was a little excessive. (when your paying £12-£15 for example per meal) to pay an additional £5 I thought was rather much.
I picked this hotel due to beautiful location but also it had swimming pool and gym facilities. When I arrived I went to the pool for a swim, and couldnt spend much time in it all, it was really dirty, things floating in the water which I would have not wanted to know what they were. So got out and didnt use it for the rest of my trip. This is not specifically the hotels fault it is the fitness centre, but worth knowing if you pick this hotel for these facilities.
I stayed for business so did not have to pay myself for hotel, I think if I had of paid myself I would have been disappointed. Purely on comfort, location then this is a nice hotel.
