3/5 Okay

Beautiful building
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the royalist suite, and we really enjoyed having access to north lakes spa - that was a great touch! Enjoyed watching the red squirrels in the garden and little one enjoyed spotting rabbits! My only niggle is that we were disturbed two evenings by the people in the flat above doing very loud renovations (I did mention on one of the to Stephanie that they were disturbing us, it was suggested for us to go upstairs which if I’m honest We didn’t feel we were able to do). Just felt it was a tad inconsiderate considering they had seen us in the corridor, other than that a very pleasant stay.

Lovely short break away from it all!
We booked for a few nights away at the last minute, and we're so glad we found this place. We had everything we needed and the house was in a beautiful setting. Everything about our stay was straightforward and relaxing, and the main living room with the secret doorway was particularly atmospheric. We fully intend to book again if we get the chance later in the year.

Amazing experience
I brought my friend from Texas and we had an amazing time there. So much to do at the house and then we drove around many places ~ it felt like a mystery to navigate the room but when we figured it out it was so cool! I’ll let new people figure it out alone too hahaha thanks for the wonderful time and for the extra gifts left for us on the table !!! Also lovely meeting the people that frequent there! :) 10/10 recommend
