We chose this as it was only 1/2 an hr from home and offered everything we needed; great spa treatments at reasonable prices, delicious 5 course meal in the main restaurant. The bistro is more relaxed, but good food and more Sunday evening feel. Breakfast was excellent and served til late on a Sunday morning, so skipped lunch and waited...

We stayed overnight in one of the mews houses this weekend on a B&B rate. The Jasmine suite was fabulous, it was very spacious with a lounge area, a mini kitchen, fireplace, four poster bed, ESPA products in the bathroom and it's own private jacuzzi in the courtyard. We had dinner in The Brasserie restaurant and the food was excellent....

Friendly relaxing demo paradise at reasonable price. Good food and clean comfortable rooms. A cosy place that never disappoints. On arrival there is a friendly face opening the door and carrying your case. There is an open log fire, a bar, a coffee area and gardens.

Well organised; perfect entertainment during dinner, which was excellent, attentive staff who looked after us very well throughout the evening and fireworks and dancing to round off a wonderful evening, as well as see in 2017. Our room was comfortable and...

We had afternoon tea yesterday in the conservatory. We are a family of 7 with one member of our party being vegetarian and dairy free, we had booked the tea quite last minute and had mentioned this when booking, we were advised that they normally need 48 hours for dietary requirements but we're sure they could do something. Our waitress...

For our daughter's 40th birthday we booked a family afternoon tea for 14 people. Our party was welcomed enthusiastically and we found we had been allocated the terrace room to enhance our experience. Maurizio and Paolo, our waiters for the afternoon were discretely attentive and delightful with our grandchildren. I would recommend this treat to anybody.

Booked a Spa package to stay at this hotel in January 2017. Enjoyed the hotel until we returned to our room and released that someone was clearly smoking in their room and the smell of cigarette smoke was being pumped around the aircon. The massage I received was excellent. The package included a 3 course dinner in the brasserie which...
