Stayed for a night the week before Christmas to celebrate a birthday and friends anniversary. The reception was friendly and helpful and the executive room was spacious, clean and beautifully furnished. Dinner in the evening was lovely as was the post dinner drinks nestled by the open fire in the lounge. It was a lovely relaxed prelude to the manic...

Stayed overnight here on business - looked fabulous at night driving up to the hotel. Used the leisure facilities but the steam room was out of order which was a real shame! Breakfast was really good and plentiful. We would love to stay here for longer and sample more of the spa facilities.

Did change our room and was offered help with our luggage as it was such a long way from reception, help never arrived so struggled with everything to our room. Breakfast was a...

Went to a wedding here and it was lovely when you arrive seeing the grand hotel. The room was also lovely and staff were very helpful whilst it was extremely busy! Also loved the homely feel in the bar area and the Christmas decorations were a delight to look at.

Room was fabulous. Had a great view of the grounds. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was very good and varied. Evening meal was also nice. Couldn't fault most of it. The only disappointing thing was the noise from the children in the seating area outside our room. I think they were part of a wedding party and had a number...

Stayed at the hotel for one night only. Upon arrival you are greeted with a beautiful country estate at the end of a winding lane. The hotel itself was beautiful. We stayed in an executive double room. Luxurious surroundings, the view was beautiful and there was ample space. We had breakfast there which was the usual continental breakfast and Full...

We stayed for an overnight as it was close to a wedding we were going to. Beautiful old mansion house. Attentive staff. Our room was beautifully appointed. Bathroom was large and had a great shower with complimentary Gilchrist toiletries. Would highly recommend this hotel.
