Arrived at the bottom of a beautiful drive way, with stunning landscaping. After a (very) long walk, arrived at reception to be checked in by a very rude receptionist. Didn't tell us anything about the hotel facilities or breakfast.
Got to the room, looked very tired. Doesn't have an in room ironing board but instead a room in the basement with an ironing board and iron - not very convenient.
Spa was good, but the steam room smelt and felt mouldy. Male shower room had 5 massive flies in.
Breakfast was in a beautiful room, but very poor quality. Literally the cheapest cooked breakfast I've had in a hotel in some time.
We went to view the menu for dinner (there wasn't a menu in the room so had to go down to the restaurant and ask). Upon viewing you had 2 choices: 2 courses or 3 courses - nothing was priced individually but instead almost every item on the set menu had a supplement. Nothing on the menu jumped out. I would certainly recommend reducing the menu size and letting customers buy what they want.
I would not recommend staying here unless it is less than £100 a night - its 4 stars are certainly for breadth of facilities; not quality.
