Stayed at Tilney manor for just one night, could have stayed for a lot longer. the rooms were amazing, such luxury and the views were Divine. One of the best rooms we have stayed in ever,
The free standing bath tub is fab, and you can shower outside with hot water and look at the view.,
Great nights sleep too on a comfy bed. Feels very homely and it's great not having to carry a key around, the honestly policy means doors are just left unlocked.
Nice pool area, little pool with very cold water, but great for cooling down in, again great views.
The lunch was fab, a 3 course meal from a menu, the dinner was a buffet which was a little disappointing as we're looking forward to a nice evening sit down meal after we had experienced the lovely lunch. Breakfast was gd with a selection of hot or cold things to eat.
Wine and beer isn't included but was very reasonable.
The game drives were good and the rangers have great knowledge. however having such a big park and not so many of the big 5 animals, we didn't get to see everything on 2 game drives.
