            8.2

            Very smartt and great location

            No lift and had to drag heavy suitcases up numerous flights of stairs

          • Family with children
            6.2

            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.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            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.

          • Couple
            3.8

            I had a lovely room that was all.

            I didnt like the way we were not informed of christmas parties happening down stair.. with loud thudding music untill 1am and the reserant was unable to be used.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            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.

          • Couple
            9.2

            the staff were great

            food was very poor apart from the breakfast!!

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The professional friendly staff.

            Having to trudge up to our top floor room. Did not know there was no lift.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            the isolated countryside location and the jacuzzi

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            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.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Swimming pool and can have 3 children in one room

          • Older travelers

          • Older travelers
            8.4

            Fabulous location,well priced, comfortable and very convenient for our needs.

            Bathroom a little dated -but adequate.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Large room and huge double bed. Buffet breakfast very good.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Good breakfast

            No lift to upper floors , not disabled friendly
