How to Get There
We stayed here last weekend for our mini moon after getting married the day before elsewhere. On arrival we were greeted and congratulated by the lovely receptionist. We were staying in the coach house so went straight over to unpack our things. We were so shattered from our wedding the day before that we ordered room service. We had a couple of drinks and a sandwich each. It arrived pretty quickly and was really tasty. On the Saturday morning we went for breakfast and there was a great choice. A cooked breakfast with a good selection of items and lots of pastries along with cold meats and cheese.
We then ate in the restaurant on the Saturday night and the food was delicious. We also had a few drinks in the library next to the log fire. It was very relaxing.
We really enjoyed our stay, the room was very spacious, the bathroom was huge and I really enjoyed the whirlpool bath.
Took advantage of a special offer one night stay including breakfast and an evening meal, our room, no 25 was very spacious and although parts especially the bathroom were in need of a facelift it was very clean, the bed was large and comfortable, our evening meal was delicious and breakfast offered an excellent choice, I just hope they do the same offer next winter, all the staff we came in to contact with were very friendly and helpfull
We only stayed one night but were very impressed with the staff. They were friendly, helpful and interested in a real kind of way, not that usual smiley Im doing my job kind of way. Probably the best staff experience of any hotel we have stayed in.
We got good evening meal suggestions. Breakfast the next morning was excellent. The room and bathroom (Number 9) were very large, a little past its best. We had a problem with the sink and it was immediately sorted.
We would be very happy to go back and stay there.
Our stay was for two nights which included bed, breakfast and evening meal on both nights together with a bottle of champagne and some chocolates. The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and our room was really nicely appointed. There were toiletries on the first night, but shampoo and bath/ shower gel were not replaced. The previous evening we had sampled our champagne and had eaten some nuts with our drink. Two nuts had dropped onto the carpet, but sadly were not vacuumed up.
With regard to the bathroom, I found it impossible to use the mirror as the basin protruded too far away and I was constantly trying to apply make-up by squirming to the side of the basin to obtain a closer view.
The other problem was that the bathroom was cool as the towel rail wasn't switched on. Someone came to the room to see if they could help, but it was pretty obvious that the double bed was covering the appropriate switch on the other side of the wall and as there were two single beds joined together this would entail moving the beds and remaking them. The problem was corrected the next day.
The food in the dining room was good, but the service was so swift that at breakfast time my cooked food which I had ordered, arrived before I had finished my cereals. All the plates needed to be removed before the cooked breakfasts were served.
Interesting building, log fires to sit round and good room, a bit taded round the edges. Poor tv reception on a good size tv, got the aerial cable changed but had to bend the connector to make a good fit. Bathroom hot, but the bath plud fiddly to pull out; wash basin plug wouldnt release leaving a sink full of dirty water; had to complain twice to get it sorted. Excelent breafast and attentive service though as mentioned by others, plates could be bigger. Spa wasnt impressive, dificult to find someone to book an eyebrow tint which needed a 24hr test; ended up booking in the afternoon we left, so vacated the room and came back to sit around in the library room. Changing room (male) would take two if you didnt mind a squash. Lockers like the ones at my cheap gym Wine overpriced, so we brought our own for the evening. One the whole quite a nice time
