I am not one to dish out 5 stars for everything or to argue that everyone who disagrees with me can't have stayed in the same place, but I really do struggle to understand some of the negative things about this place. I have just returned from a 2-day stay there and absolutely loved it.
There is an undoubted 'wow' factor in driving down the approach to see this Victorian take on an Elizabethan mansion. But the inside was not the disappointment that some seemed to feel. It is quite plush, with friendly and helpful staff, decent sized rooom and, at the price of £68 per night for a double that I got online, excellent breakfast included, an absolute steal.
After a rather mediocre salad at lunch, our expectations for dinner were not high. However, the option of a £20 themed three-course meal or carvery, with one child eating free for each paying adult, was exceptionally good value. The Italian on the first night was a lot better than the carvery on the second and sometimes the service got slow because of the high occupancy, but these are minor details and I would feel petty quibbling anything.
It is mainly a golf hotel and I can't comment on the course, but it does make for lovely grounds in which to walk our dog - it is both child- and dog-friendly, which is not that common in golf hotels. The pool and gym are also well above average.
