Good leisure facilities, pleasant and friendly staff, excellent restaurant with high quality food.
All staff I came across were friendly and professional, a very pleasant experience compared to some hotels I've stayed in. The hotel areas and room I stayed in were spotless. Also I was really surprised at how quiet it was at night even though there was a wedding on. Lastly I really enjoyed the pool & gym area, again the staff were excellent.
If I had to be picky the bed wasn't as comfortable as I would have liked but thats a minor point in the whole experience.
Peace and quiet even though it was busy. Good service for all meals, and a good choice. Portions reasonable if maybe a bit pricy.
Lovely hotel, good location. Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was very clean and confortable.
Room was a bit stuffy during the night and we couldn't seem to locate the air con. Also, we were attending for a wedding and we had very heavy rain and the hotel seem to spring a leek. Their was water dripping down onto the evening reception tables and on the second floor lobby of our accomodation there looked like there had been a bad leek as there were wet towels and buckets everywhere.
the gym and the fitness facility was very good and most enjoyable
Reception , comfort, food and general standard excellent . Only downside was having to go outside to access rooms in newer part of hotel. Ok in fine weather but not in November gales and rain!
We liked the rooms, the quiet venue and the opportunity to go to the spa and gym facilities.
the staff was responsive & timely when we discovered bees in our room, the grounds & buildings are beautiful, room service was prompt, parking was convenient.
my daughter's room smelled like a musty basement and had a murphy bed -- don't think the room was used much
Staff friendly and helpful, although at times a little inexperienced. Gym and pool good. Historic building with new extensions. Atmospheric. We stayed in the original tower in 4 poster bed (although bed was rather on the small side!)
Very secluded located, quiet and nice environment. The Pool house is great with sauna and steam bath. The restaurant is luxury with good food although a bit expensive, but the service is fine. The room is big and the hotel rate is reasonable.
Would be nice if they prepare extra pillows with pillowcases. The staffs at the reception are a little bit strict.
My husband and I went for a romantic night away from the kids, there was a slight mix up with our room booked, however the staff could`t apologise enough and as an apology upgraded us to the honeymoon suit, it was out of this world. We also had dinner in the hotel, our only concern was the drinks and meals were rather expensive however the meals were fantastic. We would love to stay again but it would have to be a special occassion as we spent a fortune in 1 night.
My only complaint was it was very expensive for everything also our breakfast was cold when we got it although we didnt want to complain
A really nice hotel which is in a good location, and is in a very pleasant wooded setting. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and both were excellent - the dinner menu was imaginative with something there to suit all tastes. We had a good sized room which was very clean and well furnished. The hotel is situated well off the road which meant that there was near silence at night and a good sleep was guaranteed.
This hotel has great character, and the staff went out of their way to help.
Unfortunately the swimming pool has no steps or other form of invalid access, only ladder access, so my wife, who suffers from arthritis was unable to use it. There is a charge for Wi Fi.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, but the room and fittings were showing a lot of wear and tear. Very shabby for a 4 star hotel. Work need to be done on the rooms to bring them up to standard. I understand it is a very old and historic building but that does not mean that the standard has to drop. The wall paper was ripped and torn in room 35 and the fittings in the bathroom were loose and you could still see where some items had been repaired.....badly !!!!
Friendly staff suggested good alternatives for dinner when restaurant full.
Fresh fruit, wine, chocolate, shortbread, bathrobes and slippers not in room on arrival, but were provided few hours later after contacting reception staff. Would have been nice to have on arrival.service at breakfast a bit slow -40 mins to wait ofr cooked meal, but staff friendly and apologised for wait
