Unfortunately we only had one night here but it was amazing. We arrived by motorcycle in pouring rain and to say we were soggy is an understatement. The staff were charming, showed us to our room (we'd been upgraded to one with garden view and balcony) and came back for our soaking wet jackets, trousers, boots and gloves - to take them to the boiler room to dry off. There was only a short break in the rain for us to explore the grounds - the gardens are immaculate and the setting is gorgeous. Our room was lovely and the bathroom very well set out. The bed was exceedingly comfortable.
Dinner was amazing (see separate restaurant review), the service was very good without being intrusive and the staff knowledgeable. As mentioned in other reviews the attention to detail is impressive - my allergy to fungi (including truffles) being fully catered for. Breakfast next morning was also really good. My husband thought the Full English one of the best he'd had, my smoked salmon and scrambled egg was just right, the croissants were to die for.
I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the final bill but it was definitely worth it. I don't often give 5 stars but I'd just say - if you can afford it then stay in this fabulous place.
