    A pleasant place to stay in glorious countryside

    A very comfortable stay in an Executive Room. Pleasant staff and very helpful service throughout our visit. We ate well though the menu is perhaps a little ‘safe’. I had hoped for seasonal specials on the menu but was disappointed. The wine list is good and reasonably priced. On a chilly October evening it would have been nice to have a real fire in the lounge area but the grate was empty and thus lacked a cosy feel.

    Check if your looking to go with pets

    Booked via hotel.com as the page impaired that the rooms shown where available for pets. When we arrived we where told that only certain rooms are available for pets and we where downgraded to another room. No attempt was made to reduce the price. Talked to the manager and he promised to change the text online, which has been done, but no sign of a price adjustment. Our bed was a little uncomfortable as it had a dip in the middle, but the breakfast and service where excellent.
