Our room was very nice & on the first floor of Anderson block but the layout of the hotel is slightly strange with a utilitarian feel - blocks of accommodation arranged over a fairly large area and it has the sense of a place used on a regular basis for conferences etc - often the case with De Vere hotels. We had chocolates, water & fruit waiting for us in the room & I think our room was bigger than standard with a small seating area in front of the tv.
The restaurant is in a separate block which was a few minutes walk away. We stayed from 28 to 30 December so had to get wrapped up warmly to go for meals. On the plus side the weather was bright but chilly which made it great for walks around the lovely grounds but I wouldn't have been so happy with the walk to the restaurant in heavy rain even though the reception area has plenty of brollies you can borrow. The mansion on the site is very pretty with gorgeous views from its terrace area. I suspect it's very popular with wedding parties.
Disappointingly the beauty spa had closed only the previous week although they still had a display area in reception - I should have checked but thought as it was likely to be a fairly quiet time I'd have no difficulty getting an appointment for a bit of pampering and the spa was still listed on the hotel website.
There's not much in walking distance of the hotel as it's in a (very smart) residential area apart from a few shops at the bottom of the hill. We ate all meals in the hotel. Breakfasts were fairly good and the food was fine otherwise - mostly buffet though - but the provision for vegetarians tended towards stodgy & uninspired - baked pasta or veggie burger in the bar. I had a main course salad at lunchtime but it was literally just a huge bowl of lettuce & some grated parmesan with dressing. Some roast veggies or even avocado would have cheered it up a bit. Service over lunchtimes in the bar area was pleasant but not particularly efficient with long waits for some of our party's food to arrive whilst others had practically finished.
If you get a good deal & have reason to visit this area, it's worth a try.
