Beautiful old hotel
Lovely hotel with beautiful grounds. Inside there were several log burners which were very welcoming for this time of year. Bit disappointed with the main course at dinner. Beef was rather fatty and chewy. Breakfast was a buffet and very good. All staff were very friendly.

6/10 Good

Terrible bed!
The bed was soo uncomfortable we complained after the first night. We were offered a mattress topper which we decided to fit ourselves as we were already back from our day trip out. When we went to fit it we found the mattress already had another two mattress toppers on it already!! Surprise surprise the third mattress topper didn't improve things at all! I complained about this at checkout and was told maintenance would be told to check it?! Bin it more like... Also it's the only hotel I've ever stayed at where I've gone out for the day to return to find that the room had not been cleaned yet despite the basket of cleaning products and sheets having been left outside the door since early morning. Chapping the door at almost 5pm to say is it okay if we disturb you now to clean the room is unacceptable! I could forgive these things in a budget hotel as you get what you pay for. But at over £300 pound for two nights it is not a cheap hotel! Stunning building which looks the part from the outside but needs a serious revamp!

it's good venue place. Service at Bar and Restaurants are brilliant. The comfort level of bedding material is low. The shower water is painful to use. Feeling sorry for such nice place.
