            Hotel was great as always but they had no record of the booking I made through Bookings.com

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            nice setting, family run character, nice rooms, good quality cooking, no other choice than relatively high priced meals

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Great hotel, beautiful rooms, lovely grounds. Obviously not cheap but well worth it

            Cost of breakfast was a bit steep!

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            We only had breakfast at the hotel which was good though the buffet did not have much on offer and we felt it could have been replenished. The upgraded room was good.

            Having booked a standard double room through you on 26/1/11 we were more than disappointed with the room we were given-it was clearly a single room with only 1 set of towels and 1 glass, small bed and even no tv remote. The bath was in the bedroom with the loo in what seemed to be a cupboard. We complained (long story) and were eventually upgraded but by then we had little time to enjoy those facilities as we were off to a party. The hotel did deal with our complaints but I feel you should be aware of the situation for other clients who may book through you.

            extremely helpful and pleasant staff, beautiful setting

            housekeeping forgot to provide bath towels and previous occupant's underpant were left in the bathroom!

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The serenity, greenery and the courtesy of the staff. The quality of food was exceptional.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Top class service at all levels. Excellent location. Superb dining experience. Very comfortable rooms. Outstanding bathroom.

            Very good wine menu but rather expensive!

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            The wonderful location, the excellent restaurant, the polite and friendly staff and the beautiful bathroom was what we most enjoyed during our stay.

            We were just a bit disappointed by being placed in a room looking at a brick wall,while we had chosen this hotel to be able to look at the surrounding nature. Especially as the hotel was not fully booked.

          • Couple
            9.6

            I really enjoyed the relaxed countryside nature of the hotel. Lovely classic look about it. The food was great and the service in the whole hotel was great.

            I thought maybe a tad bit expensive but overall great romantic location.

          • Couple
            10.0

            Locaton, service, wine and great room service menu.

            That we only got to stay for one night and hadn't booked to stay longer!

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            beautiful grounds and amazing rooms and bath. very luxurious and accordingly high priced. we were upgraded to a very large suite and it was the largest hotel room (and bath) I ever seen.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            I thought the whole hotel was fabulous and the room that I stayed in was top class and very luxurious.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Attentive staff, nice welcome, excellent organisation of a wedding reception, good food, lovely large quiet room (Poplar), lovely common rooms and magnificent view.

            Lighting in room (Poplar) not well planned. Alcoholic drinks expensive.

          • Single
            4.4

            I attended a wedding which was catered for excellently. Staff were generally efficient and friendly. Beautiful setting and surroundings.

            The bathroom in my room was very dated. The towels were so thin they were actually worn into holes - another guest complained of the same thing. The carpet in my room was torn and stained. The valance on my bed was filthy and stained. The furniture was marked and a bit tatty. On leaving, the hotel insisted that I had not already paid 50% of the bill on my credit card and made me pay the whole amount. This has since been refunded as I complained. I was given £40 refund for my complaint about the room and when I eventually spoke to the manager after 2 days of returning home he told me that he thought the accommodation I had been given was of a standard that he thought was fine given that I had booked through a discount site. He agreed that my room was due for refurb but apparently £40 off was in his opinion a fair deal. All in all I would never recommend anyone to stay at this hotel - certainly not a 5 star experience as far as I was concerned.

          • Couple
            6.2

            The food was impeccable, however some staff were rather confused as to which course should be served at which time (breakfast).

            I personally think the place should focus on its heritage and maintain decor and bathroom toiletries to match/suit this. A display cabinet full of cuddly toys seemed a little out of keeping with the tone of the establishment. The outdoor swing chair cushion had not been replaced after a downpour rendering the swing unusable. Black fingerprints were left on the window frames after staff had serviced the bedroom and opened windows. Spoons in the bedroom had not been washed and had coffee stains and body hair belonging to a previous customer was left in a drawer.
