We stayed here 2 years ago and booked again this weekend. When we stayed last time it was 350 pounds. It was Michelin star and the service was 2nd to none.
This time around we were very disappointed, the room was fantastic if a little dusty, but the restaurant had closed and a very small take away walled garden cafe in the grounds had taken its place. The food was very poor and expensive. The service at breakfast was the bare minimum. The food at breakfast was minimal we were nit at any point asked if everything was ok, or did we want a refill, or even want tea instead of coffee! The coffee and tea facilities in the room were very sparse compared to last time. In short we were so looking forward to a similar experience that we had had last time, and were unimpressed. It was 60 pound cheaper, but we expected more for our money. When we booked it there was nothing said about the change on the website. We understand it has been changed in the last week to refkect the changes. It was very expensive for really just a nice room, nothing more.
