This was our second stay here and, especially at this time of year with the gardens bursting into life, it is hard to see how it can be bettered as a proper country house hotel. There is no criticism worth making of the hotel - just admiration. Inside and out it is a feast for the senses which few could match. it is very John Betjeman in style, which is what we like. The set tea is especially civilised, not to mention generous.
Occupancy was high for our visit but you only noticed it at breakfast time.
The only minus was the leisure centre, which is not in character with the rest of the hotel. There is a reasonable swimming pool and a very small sauna, normally switched off. It's best to arrange a visit with reception in advance. There was a phone link to reception which you use to ask reception to turn on the sauna. We tried this but there was no answer. Since this was also the emergencey number, we thought this very dangerous. Reception mentioned that there was a fault in the system which has caused this which had been reported. They apologised but think safety if/when you use the cenrtre. It did not spoil our stay but it was a disappointment and a little shocking that emergancy arrangements were faulty. An attendant would solve the problem but this may not be viable.
