It was a strange to stay. If you are looking for simplicity, solace, meditation, and walking around the grounds then this is your place to stay. The halls at night were dark. We felt that we were in the movie "The Shining". We stayed for one night at the beginning of September and it was hot, so we left the windows opened at night. They are no screens in the window or AC. In the middle of the night, we heard something flying around the room and they turned out to be 3 bats. Fortunately, they found their way out. The toilette was like being in an airplane - vaccum style system.

Scary. Very scary. Wife didn't want to overnight.
We would have checked-out early and not stayed the night if it weren't for the fact that the hotel is very remote and finding any alternative would have been very difficult. The biggest issue was the sewer line. Every minute while using any water (brushing teeth, showering, etc) a large grinder pump located within the suite would turn on. The sound of it is best described as what it would sound like if all of the dark forces were emerging from the middle of the earth. Terrifying, frightening, and evil sounding. Considering that this was formerly an Abby, the evil connotations are magnified. The facility feels like it was remodeled by "I did it myself". The furnishings are spartan. Electric outlets are scarce. We like old buildings and old hotels, but this one was an experience we would not like to repeat.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
nice setting
bathroom plumbing very noisy and only lukewarm water for shower and bath. Spa/fitness facilities very basic and at a small extra charge

Wonderful location in a beautiful old building
Beautiful old building with splendid and vast gardens to walk through. Rooms were pleasant but there was no air conditioning and the room was particularly warm. The bathroom was a little small, but we had chosen the most basic room. The staff were very helpful and the spa facilities are numerous. Secure parking is available, but ask at the reception for the code. Would happily stay again.

Investment badly needed
Thus could be a wonderful hotel if a major refurbishment took place. The building is lovely, we upgraded to a suite which was large overlooking the courtyard but had major cracks in the walls and the front door frame was partly missing. It was poorly decorated with awful bathroom and the plumbing was very noisy, the noise when flushing the toilet nearly blew our heads off! The bed was very uncomfortable with poor quality bedding. We can't comment in the food as we decided against eating there after reading the poor reviews. There was a very nice restaurant a short distance away. It would take a vast amount of cash to turn this hotel into what it could be, it is a beautiful building in a lovely location, such a shame.
