Actually stopped here in 2012 prior to the refurbishment but being new to TripAdvisor I felt it necessary to leave a review for this hotel as we had such a lovely time.
We had booked a two night stay as part of a Groupon deal and had some reservations due to mixed reviews... however upon arrival we loved every minute of it.
The hotel is out in the sticks and we found it a bit tricky to find, however we persisted and were soon pulling up the long drive to the hotel. The hotel has quite a 'grand' feel to it and beautiful grounds. Going through the large entrance we were welcomed with a blazing fire (our visit was in February) and comfy armchairs... it felt like walking in to a country estate.
We were quickly welcomed by a lovely member of staff who checked us in and personally showed us to our room (with it being an old building it was a little bit of a maze). Our room was one of the family suites (Priest Weston) and was lovely... nice big space with a double bed, sofa, coffee table, wardrobe and TV. The long windows filled the room with light and had a stunning view...stunning! We loved waking up and watching the sheep grazing in the field... it was very cosy sat with a cup of tea (and so quiet!).
The food was very nice but a bit expensive, and with it being out in the country we had limited options to go elsewhere and this is the reason they did not score 5 stars... however all the staff were lovely and very helpful through our whole stay.
The area is lovely for walking... there is a caravan park/campsite near by but during our visit it did not effect our stay at all.
To top it all off my partner proposed here so it was a truly magical stay.
Would I visit again - Definitely... especially now the rooms have been redecorated as it looks wonderful.
