I stayed here for my friend's wedding on the 12th May. Everything about this venue was perfect.
The staff at the wedding were great, constantly coming round to check everything was ok and topping your glass up for you. The food was outstanding, by far the best meal I've had in a long time!
The staff's communication with the guests was brilliant and did everything they could to make sure the day was perfect for the wedding. The bar staff for the evening were also very efficient.
The site is beautiful and everything about the place is peaceful. The main building is beautiful and there is a piano to have a tinkle on.
Some people might not like that there were no televisions in the room, but I think it suited the place perfectly.
The room was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was modern.
Even in the middle of the night I was able to go down to the main reception a buy some cookies!
Breakfast the following morning was great, the food was hot and there was plenty of fresh fruit and limitless coffee and orange juice.
I loved everything about this place and I shall definitely be staying here again.
