Stayed here for a wedding recently. Can't fault the service in regards to the wedding. We were all very well looked after and spoiled , being attentive to all our needs. The Manager seems to be there 24 hours a day and served us breakfast as well as overseeing the wedding. However, there does seem to be a shortage of staff, especially in the restaurant. The night before the wedding we actually gave up waiting to be served and went elsewhere in the village. They lost a lot of money from us on this occasion, as were were a party of 16.
The rooms in the main house have lots of charm but beware of staying when it is raining.. The rain leaks through the roof in several places, creating soggy carpets and pools of water over the floors. The Ripley block lacks charm but a comfortable night stay with a power shower. Most of all it is away from the noise of the main building and wedding areas. It also does not leak rain!
Overall a good weekend, but that was mainly down to a brilliant wedding.
