A lovely hotel within lovely grounds, however you do pay for it! This hotel accommodated our wedding group along with I believe 2 other weddings at the same time and you would not even have known anyone else was there! We had some allocated staff for the evening and they were on hand the whole time, really great service. The welcome on arrival at the desk was also first class and they were in general really helpful for our whole stay.
The only downsides for us were - on arrival, we parked quite a way from the hotel, and had to wander over to reception - there didn't seem to be somewhere we could leave the car for a few minutes anywhere closer, he Sunday morning breakfast staff were no-where near as attentive as all the others we had come across. Also no gym (or anywhere for a massage!) - just a track around the grounds you could follow if you wanted a run (but as a fair weather runner - I didn't fancy it!) as it was pouring.
The rooms are all unique - really lovely looking, old fashioned (= character) but lighting wasn't brilliant in the few rooms of ours or friends we saw, sadly, so I did have to crouch by the window to do make-up. The fab touch of a bottle of champagne each morning was lovely, however a shame we didnt get a refresh on the home made biccies (which got demolished in about two seconds flat on our arrival!).
Would recommend the hotel most certainly - just have to save up to visit as it's not cheap!
