This hotel gets everything absolutely spot on, from the warm welcome at reception to the guided tour from Dave and the impecable attention to detail - I have to count this as the best hotel experience I have ever had. Nothing is too much trouble, the facilities are spot on and you are treated like a welcome guest at a wonderful private country castle. The food is spectacular and I cannot understand why it doesn't have a Michelin star - we had the 7 course tasting menu. Quiet, tranquil and understated, the peace and quiet was just what we needed to unwind. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in, the bathroom amazing and the moulton brown toiletries lovely, nice go to a hotel and not have to take shampoo and conditioner because quality has been provided. The complimentary gin and tonic in the room was big enough for a double for two and the delivery of fresh ice delightful. I can't stop raving about this place and am just looking forward to our next trip. I will be booking to go back in winter as the fires in the main rooms look specacular. The privacy of the grounds and the walks also mean that you are usually the only people to be seen in the grounds, they are that vast. This has set me up for disapointment for any other hotel as I will forever be comparing.
