The food experience was 5+ but the hotel experience was 4+ but still a very good stay.
Firstly the food, a great meal in the evening and the single sitting format worked well. Plenty of areas to sit for a drink and the dining room is very pleasant and well spread out. Food was fantastic without being over complicated and everyone on our table enjoyed what was put in front of them. There was a very good selection of wine that offered good value. Service at the meal was excellent.
Breakfast was just as good and a massive choice and all excellent with a lot of care and thought put into it. The service for breakfast was a little hit and miss with the younger staff on duty perhaps needing a bit more direction although they tried to make up for any shortcomings with a sense of humour.
For our Hotel stay, we arrived and were shown to our two rooms which were both of a very good size. Our room was on the top floor up a second staircase. The bathroom was in the eaves meaning a sloping ceiling and had a very small shower (there was also a bath).
On our visit there was also a whiff of drains in the bathroom which the staff could not have missed. There was also an unlocked door in the bathroom leading into the attic space with the tanks, very strange! Because of the bathroom, it did knock the edge off our hotel stay which was 4* rather than 5*. Our daughter stayed in a nice room on the ground floor which was fine so we may just have been unlucky with our allocation of room. Outside there are beautiful gardens and plenty of room to find a quite area to sit.
So not quite a perfect stay but overall would visit again and just be more careful with our room choice but the food was outstanding and worth going out of your way to experience. On arrival we were met by a lively young lady with ginger hair who looked after us incredibly well during our first day and went out of her way to make sure everything was OK, she is the result the review is still 5*.
