Attractive Period Building in a Beautiful Setting
This is a good quality country house style hotel with excellent food and a lovely feel.
The surrounding grounds are very attractive and the location gives access to some of the most stunning countryside in the UK. We had an executive room which was well-equipped and spacious I cannot comment on the smaller rooms. The public spaces of the hotel are beautifully presented and the food outstanding. Staff are helpful but lack knowledge in some areas someone with some wine knowledge would be useful. The Leisure Complex looks awful from the outside (how did it get planning permission?) but is well equipped inside and works well. Overall, well worth the visit and a very enjoyable break.
Good food and service but hotel lacks investment compared with others locally
The outside of the hotel is impressive, the inside less so.
The hotel corridors are palaces of anaglypta wallpaper and austere lighting. The rooms that have not been refurbished (I understand some have) are like time travel to the 1980s. My bathroom was really poor with a low pressure shower where it is difficult to get wet. Downstairs the bar area is dated, but serviceable. The food and service are very good; local food cooked well, with polite and prompt service. The breakfast selection is wide, and well presented and served. I understand the restaurant is the process of refurbishment and it has the potential to look much better. The food and staff save this place.
