This building is very grand and steeped in history but as a hotel did not meet my basic needs.Not to be used if you don't have a car, as it is 800metres from the main road,unlit with no real walking path. There are no eating facilities within the 'Mansion', only weddings & functions are catered for. I had to arrange for outside food delivery for dinner one night & didn't eat the other.The 'desk' is only manned within busy hours 9-5, the entrance was not open on my arrival, I wondered around with my suitcase looking for a way in.The rooms are unique with antques but weren't designed for comfort, no clock or radio, or place to sit or work. The bedroom door only closed if I used the key. The 'kitchen' was along the landing for making tea/coffee but with no sink, I had to go back & forth to my room to fill the kettle etc.Being there for business & leaving each morning at 8am,I asked if breakfast provisions could be supplied. The TV was acessible one night in the library, when not being used a lecture room.I was the only paying quest,alone in a huge mansion,Not a place to stay if you are on business or for that matter for pleasure.Tip-no alcohol allowed
