Rooms,setting and food were excellent.Staff were friendly and efficient.
I did feel that we had arrived at "Gods waiting room"but it really didnt detract from the lovely setting and a most enjoyable stay.
The whole experience I would describe as being " the whole being greater than the sum of its parts" The three bars didnt really make for a nice evening although they were well serviced and clean.Just seemed to lack atmosphere. The animation/entertainment team worked hard and made for a good evening, although catering to the majority clientele (70+) it was a little like being spoken to by a "Blue Peter" presenter.. The entertainment area was at best utilitarian with bare tables and hard chairs. Not even a beer mat or napkin with the drinks.
Our visit coincided with some of the best weather during the last three months,so the gardens and woodland walks came into there own.
All in all very enjoyable and we would certainly consider another visit. The rooms ,staff attitude and food was well worth the price paid. Recommended.
