This hotel sits on 12 acres and the vegetables are grown on site. The rooms and amenities are superb and everything is well maintained. The general manager, David Thompson was an amazing host and even...

Dear John, Your recommendation is very much appreciated, 'one of the finest I have ever stayed in' is a pretty great accolade so thank you for those wonderful words.

Beautiful grounds, nice pool and spa, well stocked bar, great food. Room was quite nice and completely modern. Stayed in a junior suite. Located in an agricultural part of the region, very bucolic, nice place to stay.

Beautiful autumn colours in the gardens provided a spectacular backdrop for an exquisite Mothers Day High Tea. Bubbles, your choice of tea in its own teapot, and 3 tiers of the most delicious savouries and sweets. Mums were also given giftwrapped chocolates. What a lovely treat.

My first experience with this Hotel was excellent. I stayed for 3 nights on my own while visiting friends in the region. My room was large and very comfortable with beautiful views over the pool and gardens. The TV could be viewed from the bed or the sofa and while well furnished a desk would be a really useful addition....

Came here for a 5-course dinner with my lovely friend. Upon arrival, we were greeted by very friendly staff and were given a complimentary glass of wine.
