Really good, although we did have 48 steps up to our room, but we were aware of this when we booked. We will return but this time try a garden room.

We found everything very good albeit the old house could do with some freshening up. The food was just excellent, with everything cooked just perfectly. The extensive grounds are just lovely.

Bedroom/bathroom very spacious and clean although some aspects would benefit from some tlc/redecoration. Staff friendly - food good although quite disorganised on our second days breakfast when it was much busier. Location good - easy to find and lots of nice places to eat locally.

The three bar staff.
Other Comments
The hotel was dis-jointed. The Garden rooms were a considerable distance from the main part of the hotel. lots of steps without grab-rails, and sloping pathways.
