We only needed an overnight stop-over but I really wanted to stay longer.
The hotel exterior looked magnificent with manicured grounds and plenty of places to park. The reception area is very nice and the pleasant staff are professional and very curteous. The room was stylishly decorated, with a large comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. Complimentary water was chilled in the fridge and Molton Brown bath products were a nice touch. Our room was on the second floor and overlooked the horse training grounds, but we didn't see any horses during the short time we were unpacking.
The spa is free to use and the staff put us at ease explaining everything we would need to know, opening times, where to get fresh towels, that a £1 coin (returnable) was required for the lockers etc etc. The pool is a nice size, certainly big enough to complete a few lengths and the sauna and jacuzzi was welcoming.
We had afternoon tea in the bar, nice selection of sandwiches and cakes and priced reasonably but we didn't eat in the restaurant deciding to eat out instead.
Breakfast included in the rate (£85) was served quickly and was of high quality.
Overall, this hotel was a fantastic find, offering good value for money and exceptional service.
