We stayed as part of a Secret Escapes deal which included two nights stay, bed and breakfast, spa treatment, hire of bikes and a fishing experience. We booked as an anniversary break.
We were allocated a Cosy room to begin with, which is exactly as described on the website. Cosy and compact but had everything you needed and was plenty comfortable for us. However, in the morning we were awoken by the room below us getting ready to depart. The airconditioning could be heard in our room and their alarm! I don't think the soundproofing was ideal.
We mentioned this at reception and we were transferred to a traditional room in the older part of the hotel, which was more spacious and luxurious. Very kind of the staff to do this.
The food, the drink and the company was wonderful. The staff were very attentive, friendly and approachable. We had a lovely time staying here.
It was a great base to explore the area and take time to relax in the beautifully maintained grounds. There was time for a game of croquet, boules and my husband took advantage of the fishing experience (though he didnt have a clue what he was doing).
