We stayed here for just one night on DBB. There are 3 locations for rooms in this hotel, the old building, the newer extension and the garden rooms. We were allocated a room in the old building which had a rather quirky layout but was large, clean and had all you would expect of a 4* hotel except this is a 3* hotel. It's just obvious it is an old building with uneven creaky floors and windows that probably don't open. But despite the terrible wind and rain on that night the windows didn't rattle, but the one radiator did so we switched it off.
The spa is really lovely and we had an excellent massage and enjoyed the pool, spa bath and steam room.
There is a computer with printer for guests to use just up the stairs from reception free of charge.
The dinner and service was very good and the dinning room and lounge are very in keeping with the country house character. The food for breakfast was good with lovely large mushrooms, but was served in the Ball room which made it a little strange and unorganised.
The hotel is tired in parts but we found all the staff to be helpful and we enjoyed our stay and wish the weather hadn't been so bad so that we could have enjoyed the pleasant surroundings.
