We arrived here at around 1pm. The building was lovely and set in nice grounds. The interior was pleasant, maybe a little tired but clean and cosy. On checking in we noticed that there was a wedding party! I generally hate staying at hotels when there is a wedding on, they are loud and disruptive and the majority of the hotel is booked up. We asked for a room away from the wedding party and were upgraded to a suite. The room itself was beautiful, it was the King Suite. Elegantly decorated, incredibly spacious and huge windows with a pleasant view of the green!
Some members of staff were very pleasant, Stephen on reception and the dinner staff were good. Others were professional but not quite as friendly.
As expected with the wedding on we weren't really able to get full use out of the hotel. The main hall was full of wedding guests before we had dinner and all the other rooms other than the restaurant were off limits. The King Suite upgrade did make up for this to some extent but we chose Hand Picked Hotels as we like to enjoy the lovely little rooms and views that these particular hotels usually have. Unfortunately we couldn't really do that so much for this stay. To be fair to the staff, they did do their very best to ensure that the normal guests were effected as little as possible by the wedding party and other than most of the hotel being off limits there was very little disturbance.
All in all a pleasant stay with nice food but when you are paying over £200 for one night you should be able to make use of all of the hotel facilities.
