We stayed at this hotel on the 30th of July for one night. It is a beautiful building, with gorgeous grounds.
My husband took me there for a romantic break, and paid extra for a room with a view, which was well worth doing as we looked out over the fountain and the rose garden.
We also paid for breakfast, which was £15 a head but very good quality. There was a huge choice of food and a good range of dining times. There was even an area where a chef would cook omlettes and waffles in front of you with the ingredients you choose.
Noise proofing in the rooms was good, and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed in a "superior" room which was large, light, beautifully decorated and had robes and slippers we could use, good tea and coffee making facilities, nice toilettries and a complimentary bottle of water. This was a step up from the most basic kind of room they do, but was well worth it for the romantic atmosphere of staying in a large room with pretty views.
There were two weddings going on while we stayed there, and it was lovely to watch the bridal party posing for photos on the lawn. The setting is definately lovely enough for weddings.
Although the hotel is also a country club and golf course it didn't cause any hassle for us while we were there, and the golfers have a seperate set of buildings to use.
We also had some drinks in the tempo bar, which overlooks the indoor swimming pool and has a lovely outdoor terraced area to sit in the sun and gaze out over the hills as the sun sets! The drinks were expensive but hotel drinks always are.
The swimming pool looked very nice but we didn't go in, and we were unsure if we would have been able to go in for free with the room booking or not, but if staying again I would ask if we got use of the pool when booking, and then bring a swimming costume!
Overall I would definately recomend this hotel. It is historic, romantic, clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is not cheap (I think we paid £190 for the better class of room, the view, and the breakfasts for two) but that was on a saturday night so probably cheaper during the week, and it is worth it for a special occassion.
