A family holiday over the easter period with my wife and 2yr old son, quick simple check in with an escort to our room, we were greeted with an easter egg on our sons bed which he was very excited about totally unexpected but a nice touch.

The room was spacious with its own fire (we never lit the fire due to having our son with us) but it looked like it was working, the bathroom came with good quality selection of soaps and moisturizers and the bath/shower was very powerful and instantly hot with no loss of pressure.

We had an evening meal on the first night which was well prepared and tasted lovely while the staff were friendly throughout.

Breakfast was by far the best breakfast ive had on my travels, everything was available from a vast selection of fresh fruit and cereal, a selection of fresh fruit juice to toasted fruit buns not to mention the availability of a design your own full english breakfast which was very well prepared and perfect to open the day.

overall a very enjoyable experience from the friendly staff to the little mini eggs placed around the hotel for people to help themselves, not to mention the fantastic views across the eden valley.

we did experience 2 problems during our 4 day stay,

1: on the last day a large family of foreign visitors arrived and we were running late at breakfast and when we arrived they had literally taken all the fruit and cereal, my wife noticed them putting it in their bags, however this left us with very little choice, my son who is very vocal for a 2 yr old preceded to tell the staff that "they had no strawberrys or blueberrys for him and he wasnt happy", the woman was a little embarrassed that the whole breakfast table had been cleared, but like i said the little things count, she went away and brought out a whole tray of fresh fruit just for my son.

2: the second problem is the place is used by a lot of family ramblers, because it is obviously a very old mansion the walls a pretty thin, we found that at between the hours of 05:45 and 07:30 these families could be heard leaving the hotel, not the hotels faults but the inconsiderate guests being noisy at stupid o'clock.

both bad experiences take nothing away from the hotel, but if your gonna stay here then be aware that some guests fail to remember that not everyone is awake before 08:00.

Room Tip: Room 5 is the room in our pictures.

I think the person who left the negative review in March must have stayed in a different hotel to me! Superb welcome, very professional staff. Room was clean, toiletries were really good quality. The breakfast was one of the best I have had in any hotel, lovely selection of cereals, fruit compotes and the cooked breakfast was to die for! Beautful position with magnificent views across the Eden Valley. Thank you for a great stay.

My partner and I were looking for a short break with peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, and this was exactly what we were looking for, beautiful setting and surroudings [ what a gem ].We had a room at the front of the hotel overlooking the Eden valley. Staff very friendly and helpfull, nothing was to much trouble for them. Highly recommend for what ever the occasion. Food main menu was basic but this was offset by the specials menu every night, food was well cooked and presented. Would have no hesition in returning in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for room at front of hotel overlooking the Eden Valley the view is stunning.

I required a one night stop over and off early the next morning. Reception was really friendly and attentive. The room was superb, clean, spacious with beautiful views. After a good nights sleep I enjoyed a lovely breakfast again delivered by an extremley friendly memeber of staff. What more could you ask for....well actually the biil which was suprisingly great value for money. If you can find a better hotel locally, stay in it!

Room Tip: The views are spectacular from rooms at the front of the house

We spent two nights here last week and enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious with a large bathroom en suite. The bathroom window was very large and came down nearly to floor level which gave you the odd impression you could be seen but I believe you would have to be at a particular spot to see in and as there were only horses there I didn't mind. The view was excellent once the fog cleared.
The breakfast was very good and there was plenty of it. All the staff were friendly and helpful and we would certainly stay here again.
