From the front this place looks amazing, the garden and front of the hotel really are stunning. Sadly the bedrooms and some of the other areas including the pool are very tired and dated and in need of some real tlc.

Pleasantly surprised
Overall we had a very nice stay. We'd booked an 'unrefurbished' room which was dated but fine. Much bigger than expected. Plenty of towels etc. Quite a few cobwebs and dust but it didn't effect our stay. Service was great and the food was lovely.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
We booked for a 2 night stay. There are refurbished rooms, and rooms that haven’t been refurbished, in this hotel. We were unfortunate to have been give an unrefurbished room. There was no indication of this when we booked. It was dirty (hairs all over the carpet) and very tired, with scratched walls, damaged paintwork and a dated bathroom. We offered to pay to get a refurbished room but none were available. We were given another room of similar, but slightly better quality (there was a half eaten biscuit visible under the chest of drawers though - so much for rigorous Covid cleaning!) The grounds and staff are lovely, however, and restaurant adequate. Given the quality of the rooms given to us, this is definitely not worth the amount paid (after complaining again, we managed to get a refurbished room for the 2nd night - this was much better, so if you must go to this hotel, make sure you get one of those).
