“Fantastic wedding venue!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Very relaxed intimate wedding venue in beautiful surroundings, staff were all lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Food was superb and evening buffet had a great selection to please all. Overall a fantastic venue and couldn't recommend highly enough for a wedding or any other special occasion.

This was our second stay and we we hope to make this an annual restful pilgrimage. After a great breakfast we fished each morning to great success. Common, leather and mirror carp all in great fighting condition. Managed one fish of a lifetime (25lbs) !

The staff are very welcoming and will do anything to assist. We stayed in the outer rooms overlooking the middle lake and had a great and quiet outlook. Room updated recently and very comfortable. No problem with wifi although as reported was slow in places but good to get away from phone calls. This is a very special off the beaten track location. Thank you MB

Room Tip: Outer rooms tend to be quieter.

Superb couple of days fishing this week 24th - 27June 2014, top lake is full of nice carp, make sure you take bread and float it, had a nice carp on sweet corn ledgering. Weather fantastic, stayed in fishing lodge with a mate and we had a great couple of days fishing.

Accommodation good, food and beer in bar and restaurant very good, friendly people and good atmosphere. Sun cream and hat a must. Will certainly be visiting again, trouble is wife wants to come next time!

...as this hotel is totally out of reach for any mobile phones and nearly all computers (very slow WiFi). This is not a good sign for a business hotel.
On the other hand, the facility is over-average clean to be a British hotel. Most of the rooms are big and comfortable. Even though the breakfast is pretty simple (cereals and egg&bacon), the restaurant serves good food in the evening.
It is also no disadvantage that the staff is polite, service-minded and good-mooded.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the stable, they are quieter than the in-house rooms and allow you a breath of fre...

Recently held our wedding reception at Lakeview Manor and couldn't have asked for more. It was a small (18 guests), intimate reception and we hoped it would be a fun, relaxing afternoon. It was that and so much more. The staff made the afternoon for us. They were attentive, engaging, humorous and nothing was too much trouble. All the arrangements in the lead up to our wedding day were well organised and very accommodating! Many thanks to Julie, Kerry, Dominic and the team for a truly memorable and happy day. Couldn't have asked for more...and the sun even shone and showcased the grounds and lake! Thank you.

Further to your recent review, we are in disappointed that you considered our property to be un-inviting and that our restaurant was a prefab extension. The main building dates back to 1201, with additions some 200 years old constructed of natural stone, with oak panelling and original oak beams. We choose to have a smaller menu choice, although this is usually around 6 or 7 choices plus specials as all our meals are prepared with locally sourced fresh ingredients and cooked to order and not an extensive range from the freezer. We try to give our guests an enjoyable experience when they visit us, so I am pleased that our staff were attentive to your needs.
