Hotel decor is fantastic. Food is outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Can’t wait to take my overseas guests here. Repeat visit for us after a personal recommendation from a travelzoo team member. Keep the deals coming for this hotel please

Lovely room overlooking grounds. Enjoyed the garden, pristine bed and quality linen and towels. Warm bathroom. Friendly, motivated staff and a sleepy black cat on a lounge chair, so sweet.

The only observation I'd make is the gloomy paintwork especially in the reception area. Too much Farrow & Ball matt emulsion for my taste but, I suppose, perhaps in keeping with the period of the house? It didn't detract from out visit though.

The whole experience...the pretty drive there through the countryside, the delicious 7 course taster menu, the relaxed atmosphere at the hotel plus Dave the Manager was a quirky, knowledgeable, funny chap that added to the whole experience. Finally, we loved relaxing in the pool & sauna after breakfast the next day. We'll definitely return.

Personally, We would have liked the restaurant staff to tell us exactly what we were being served when eating a taster menu as it adds to the whole experience.

Other Comments
I couldn’t recommend this hotel highly enough. It has a very unique feel to the place which is very refreshing. Staff were charming and right amount of attentive. Small touches throughout the hotel longe areas and in our room were brilliant and made us feel special. Furniture/soft furnishings were brilliant and made the place feel like home. This really is the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Only area for improvement was more loungers and seating are needed around the pool area.
