The place is super dated and run down. The old Manor House building is barely used. But open… and dated, dirty and unloved. Instead the terrible concrete bunker of building attaches to it with old tiny rooms, dates decor, zero atmosphere was where everyone was staying and hanging out. So many missed opportunities.. overgrown flowerbeds, stained carpets everywhere, tired staff, neglected building. It has huge potential to be something very special but in desperate need of an update. It’s set in a stunning setting. But right now I think it’s probably jist a place for cheap events, conferences etc. Feels like they are in the last days of its life. Staff, decor, up keeping, grounds.. all very sad and way below Average.
The only one good think that was above average was the breakfast and dinner. Generous portions and much better quality. But they are all set in very dated unloved setting and staff running around tired.
As an interior designer I wish I could get my hands on this place to bring the love and life back in to it. But.. looking at the state of it I doubt there is any money left to reinvest as it’s been neglected for many years.
I wouldn’t come back again.. unless they hire me to make the place alive again.
