Our room was on the top floor at the back and was nice and quiet. the stairs could be difficult for the less mobile but as a listed building the planners would probably... More

Lovely building with beautiful grounds Very stylish bar/lounge area and restaurant, breakfast and evening meal was very nice, but not enough food on the lunch time buffet and we ran out of food on both days. Large rooms with comfy beds but décor is very tiered and lets the rooms down. Bathrooms small and very dated. Staff very polite and... More

we stayed for two nights at this hotel as we were attending a family wedding. My wife booked 2 doubles and a single for ourselves, 2 children and my mother in law. Initial impressions were not good.
