Perhaps what we liked the most about this peaceful, remote, retreat was the outdoors and its feel when hearing the birds chirp and the crows rattle on and on. For those of us who do not experience this much, this was perhaps one of the most interesting moments. The grounds are nice. The weather in May is crisp and cold - but - for us, we had our window open all night (hot room). The breakfast was nice. The staff was nice. For minutes, I just stood outside our room (not located in the house) and just smelled the air and felt the conditions around me. Nice place for a stop over.
I stayed for 3 nights in a single room. Very good size for single with en-suite large bathroom. Some tired decor in halls and room but fine. Very good cleaning..not intrusive. Breakfast very nice. Was at quieter time of year. Even so, rooms would benefit from double glazing to limit noise of road. Hotel welcomed several builders on projects during week. Slightly noisy therefore at night and early mornings. Staff fine; mostly helpful and welcoming. Internet accessible everywhere it seemed...except my room....oh. and the lift. A carpeted wonder of debatable quality. It may be histrical etc...just... use the stairs. Great for a few days and great price just dont expect luxury accom for that price.
