Did not like the fact you could not swim in the afternoon as it was open to non residents who use the facilities and so crowded

The old Manor House part was beautiful and stunning grounds. The hotel rooms were in purpose built two storey modern outbuildings, either ground floor or first floor rooms which are ideally located for the main reception, the pool, breakfast area. We had a first floor room which was very clean with decent toiletries and a cute kitchenette with a kettle, fridge and breakfast bar. The only downside is that the room is crying out to be updated. Even though it’s clean and generally well kept, it really looks like nothing has been updated since the mid 90’s, from the curtains to the furniture. From a 4 star hotel I would expect a little more from the room, or at least a bit more updated. Overall the area and hotel as a whole is beautiful and the grounds are just gorgeous.

Great location and stunning gardens and grounds but sadly the quality of the rooms brings the place down especially for the price The rooms are very dated and there was no fridge / mini bar in my room which made it tricky for storing water / basics Staff are very friendly and helpful If rooms were refreshed or modernised this hotel would be great

No internet for 2 of the 3 days during my stay. It was only after I formally complained - via expedia - did anyone with a clue respond with facts to my questions. Access to the internet is not a choice for those of us travelling on business. When the internet was finally turned on it worked ok for a low bandwidth connection.

The Hotel was fine ,our room large and quiet which we liked ,the bed was comfortable although a combination of double and single with the gap . The WiFi cut out constantly which was so difficult trying to work and the most disappointing was not being able to have a reservation in the evening .I asked as soon as i arrived early on the 10th but nothing that day or the following .
