                              Very pleasant location, and good value for money restaurant.

                              Lack of tea/coffee making facilities, or minibar, in rooms.

                              The setting was sublime

                              The decoration of the bar area, it did not match the ambience of an old house. Also, too few staff at what was otherwise a good breakfast!

                              I did not like that my 8 yr old son was not allowed to use the pool. We had booked here specifically because there was a pool and the trip was supposesd to be a treat.

                              Limited staff in/near bar during the day. but may have been a one off??

                              Sadly it is very tired. Rooms need upgrading and not value for money. We travel constantly internationally and locally and would not recommend hotel to anyone. Breakfast was OK and staff lovely. Bar staff had no idea how to make a cocktail, undrinkable and did not have a green olive for a martini in a hotel your size. I got served a drink that was brown when I ordered a classic dry martini with an olive. Not up to scratch at all for a hotel your size. Breakfast had lots of staff but bar on a Saturday night hardly any staff and none with any bar knowledge - very strange!!

                              ps got charged twice as well.

                              Staff weren't overly attentive; getting seated for breakfast in particular was an experience in itself, taking around 15 minutes despite tables being free and only one couple being in front of us - the staff kept disappearing.

                              I liked the gardens, pool and room decor. Pianist was lovely.

                              Gorgious surroundings and warm country atmosfere.

                              The reception rooms were pleasant and the overall feel was good

                              The bedroom was dated and I have stayed in much nicer places for less money

                              The hotel manager was unable to assist us when we complained about a full and very dirty trolley was left outside our door in the pouring rain throughout our stay. There were wet wrappers, wine glasses and food scraps on the floor. We also mentioned that a member of staff woke us up by banging on our door at 7.45am with a jug of milk that wasn't requested by us. The hotel manager simply told us that she'd make us feel 'special' if we came back another time. Shame that it was our wedding night which should have been the most special time of our lives. Still paid for the room but had no other choice. Very disappointing and definitely won't be recommending.

                              Some of the furnishings and decoration were showing signs of age and a bit worn out! Eg furniture in room, floor of reception area etc:

                              The location

                              The staff were abrupt at reception. They tried to overcharge vs the agreed rate. The room was poor at certainly not exec standard. In the mews and no outside light so difficult to enter. The bathroom was dirty and the facilities poor. The Breakfast service was like a school canteen!!!!
