Staff so friendly and welcoming

Great hotel - would really recommend

08 December 2014 Carol United Kingdom

The hotel and the gardens are lovely, and the staff are most friendly and helpful.

The afternoon tea was average, The presentation was unusual, three slices of bread with various toppings were served up on a single plate to each person so it was rather daunting. Dainty sandwiches would have looked more enticing. The main disappointment which made the experience very memorable, for the wrong reason, was the extremely loud violinist who played very fast music. Not the right ambience for an afternoon tea at all. We couldn't hear ourselves speak and came out with a headache.

they couldn't find our booking and put us on a table by the door in the conservatory and we didn't get to see the violinist all the time we were there. they later found our booking but didn't still move us to a better table in the main restaurant

The staff were all very helpful and organised. The general atmosphere was nice and so was the food.

Lovely atmosphere with the violinist, and excellent service.
