The friendly, homely atmosphere of Mabie House is our lasting impression after a weekend break. The rooms and all communal areas were warm, especially the areas with log fires or woodburning stoves where one can relax on comfortable sofas/armchairs with a newspaper/book and perhaps a drink from the well-stocked lounge bar. The staff were delightful, nothing being too much bother for them. What a breakfast! - beautifully grilled and huge! The dinner menu was also extensive, generous and served to perfection, even in a packed dining room.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone; it could cater for all ages and occasions. The magnificent views and internal comforts make it ideal for a chill-out stay, while the extensive grounds and close forest walks make it ideal as a family base.
I'm already planning a return visit and recommending it to friends.
