Basic accommodation and not value for money

Posted 23-Sep-2014
I stayed in one of the buildings away from the main house. The room was very basic and tired. My room service took a long time to come and when it did it was cold and not what I ordered. There are hotels available in the area which are the same basic standard and half the price.

Quiet and peaceful location. Ideal wedding venue.

Posted 25-Aug-2014
Pros: Quiet setting and quality of accommodation
Cons: Provision of leisure facilities (pool, gym, sauna)
Fantastic expedia low cost deal had me worried that the hotel would be in the middle of reconstruction or the venue for a noisy pop festival. I could not have been more wrong. The hotel deserves its star rating and is in a very quiet and peaceful setting. The main house is only a few minutes walk from the more modern and slightly lower rate accommodation block that our room was in, but there is plenty of parking, so you can drive between the 2 locations if the weather is bad. We didn't eat at the hotel, so I cannot comment on the quality of the food. However, it was evident that, depending on numbers staying, at least a cooked breakfast was available in the accommodation block we were in. Self service hot drink facilities were available free in the communal seating areas 24/7. The hotel appears well set up as a conference venue and has beautiful grounds if used for a wedding. The lack of leisure facilities was a small negative point and would have been an issue if I had been using this hotel for anything more than an overnight stopover. However, at less than the cost of a tank of diesel for my economy car for a double room I have absolutely no reason to complain.

Worst hotel I have stayed in

Posted 24-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
Stated in the annex. No information in room on hotel facilities. Room extremely hot with small fan only to cool room. No reception in annex, water machines empty. We departed at 5.30 in the morning so we could get back for some sleep. Even dropping of keys was complicated as no receptionist in main hotel and nowhere to just drop on keys. I cannot recommend this hotel despite its grand look from the outside.

Nice hotel, Service OK

Posted 21-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel was in a nice location with walks. Found front desk service mediocre. No smiles, just business. Didn't feel very welcoming or maybe thats how the lady talks. No how are you, thank you for staying. Found the room quite dusty. Surfaces not wiped. broken tiles in shower area with mould. Its a beautiful manor, but service let it down.

Ideal

We only required a one nights stay and had to leave early next morning. The room was a typical 'Event' delegate room. Perfectly adequate for our needs. Clean, modern and all the usual amenities. Suited us well.

Beautiful grounds

Posted 06-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
Located on a large country estate if you have time in the morning before leaving have a good walk around. The rooms have great views and are top quality the only complaint is the lack of staff but might have just been the time/day we were there.
