We came here for a dinner and auction, with an overnight stay. The organisation and catering for 150 people were excellent, the staff were efficient and very helpful, and a good evening was had by all.The wine was very reasonably priced by restaurant standards. We had an Executive room, which was spacious, with a comfortable sitting area in the window. The bed was comfortably firm and the bathroom contained a large bath and a separate shower cubicle, whose controls I found difficult to fathom, and I ended up scalding myself. The toiletries were pleasant to use. Everything looked clean as it should be until I noticed the filthy shower screen tracks, which one would only see from the loo- a deep clean is needed here. A cleaned toilet brush would also have been more pleasant.
We were the last guests down for breakfast (20 minutes before it closed) but were surprised to see that none of the vacant tables had been cleared and relaid. We found a waitress who asked us to sit in the bar until she made up a fresh table. We were also a bit dismayed that the buffet tables had not been replenished, so that there was little left- no pastries or orange juice. There was a good choice of cooked breakfast dishes. The scrambled eggs came out as hardly mixed, shredded omelettes, which were overly greasy and a disappointment (how could they get this wrong?). However, the large portion of smoked salmon was fine. The fresh cafetiere of coffee was particularly good. Once we were seated, the breakfast room was very airy and light- a pleasant spot to have a leisurely breakfast with the papers (if only the staff had been a bit more on the ball). This is a lovely venue, in its own grounds, and we would consider returning, if the above issues could be made right.
