Just got back from a pleasant and relaxing stay, lovely building with beautiful grounds and topiary garden, yes, it's looking a bit tired inside but with a little TLC can be brought back to a high standard, we had a meal off the a la carte menu on the Saturday evening which tasted amazing, was well presented with good service, the breakfasts were also good, I don't get what people are complaining about on here but each to their own? we also had an afternoon tea on the Sunday, again, really lovely.
It's well worth upgrading to a superior room, we stayed in room 34, which we thought was the best position, listening to the birds directly overlooking the topiary garden, peaceful, spacious, with a modern bathroom (with 'proper' toilet roll, see previous reviews) and a lovely huge bed! If we were to go back we would ask for this room again.
Overall we had a really relaxing stay with good food and a lovely room but just feel a little spruce up is needed in some areas, a few members of staff could be a little friendlier and in need of a bit more training to bring it up to a better standard, this place has great potential, we would love to revisit, hopefully by then it could be given an 'excellent' rating.
