If your looking for just a lovely relaxing hotel with amazing friendly staff .. great food then don’t bother with a huge hotel chain this is your hotel .

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Lovely historic hotel in attractive grounds. Period interior. Cosy room. All the staff were friendly and attentive. The club/spa could do with modernising - the entrance is cramped and scruffy. Pool impressive size but dark and along with the changing rooms, needs investment.
