“Nice but pricey”
Reviewed 29 August 2005

Went for a big family wedding and stayed over. Enjoyed the 'do' and my room had some nice little touches: sherry, boardgames etc. VERY expensive -- no make that exorbitant -- bar prices and poor service in the restaurant the following morning. Would stay again but only if I wasn't paying

Thank you for your positive comments and I was sorry that you felt that the discounted wedding rate was "exorbitant" and that our bar prices were very expensive. We use 50ml measures in the house and our function suite with its wedding garden, fish ponds, gazebo, indoor and outdoor seating areas is not a pub with pub prices). It would have been very helpful to know why you felt service at breakfast had been poor as I value hugely any constructive criticism. Kind regards, Tim Howard, Manager

My boyfriend took me here as a surprise for Valentines day last year. Apart from being swept off my feet by the romance the hotel blew me away too. The room we had was one of the superior rooms. It had the biggest (sleigh) bed I've ever seen and everything about it was luxurious. As it was the middle of winter we did have a small problem with the water when the hotel's pipes froze, but this problem was sorted out asap and didn't cause any inconvenience. Additionally, the food wasn't as wonderful as it usually is. We were having the Valentine's set menu and although there were seven courses, they were rather little portions. It was all very tasty, but it was made less special by the fact that there were lots and lots of other couples having the same food in the same place at the same time. I can't comment myself as I haven't tried it yet, but apparently the food is normally out of this world. Will be trying it when I get the chance.

We did have breakfast delivered to our room in the morning (at no extra cost). This was superb. Best breakfast I've ever had!

Overall, the whole stay was a wonderfully memorable experience. The hotel is beautiful - beautiful surroundings, huge rooms with breathtaking views, all the trimmings. Earns much more than its three stars.
