    Location is good. Nice relaxing swimming pool and lawn in front of hotel.

    I would classify the staff at the bar as unfriendly and when our food (eventually) arrived it was cold.

    The grounds were lovely and peaceful. Breakfast was very good.

    rooms were tired. Had to change from first room due to broken mattress. Noise from adjoining room was not well insulated.

    The room was nice, although ther view was poor. The bed was very comfortable

    On the first night the restaurant was closed to the guests, the hotel had no alternative but to serve food in the lounge which meant eating off a knee high table. It would have made more sense to either hire some more dining tables and chairs or offer free room service (the room had a suitable table and chairs for dining.

    Good

    The bar staff were very helpful when we arrived late just wanting a snack - the cheese platter with a glass of wine was just perfect. The reception staff were also efficient and helpful

    This sounds illy, but first impressions count - they key they programmed failed to work and the room was a long way to reception. to be fair, the rfeceptionsit reprogrammed it and came back with me to check it worked, but I do wish they'd get that technology right more often. The light bulbs flickered in the room - today's energy saving bulbs shouldn't do that. Overall, a little too much of the faded elegance and shoddy appearance all round counted against it.
