I am writing this review in the hotel section as the hotel's restaurant does not appear to be listed. This is a big mistake as the restaurant is excellent. We went for lunch yesterday and cannot praise it highly enough in every respect. The welcome from the staff was friendly without being overpowering. We were shown into a large comfortable sitting room with wonderful views over the extensive gardens, to relax with a drink and choose from the menu (a very reasonably priced table d'hote). The meal itself was served in an elegant dining room, also with beautiful views. Service was impeccable and the food extremely well prepared.
Its the little things that often make all the difference, like linen serviettes and a jug of iced water on the table. No hidden charges like extras for vegetables or bread, and the wine list is both extensive and reasonably priced.
Cannot praise this hotel highly enough - management must be excellent to produce such pleasant staff.
