The location is stunning - the most beautiful countryside, unspoilt and a wonderful setting. The old house is gorgeous too - a wonderful old building, full of character.
Our room was large, very clean but fairly basic. Other comments about the television are true, it is old fashioned but worked fine for us. The bed was a little uncomfortable, but the room had everything we needed. Little finishing touches like shortbread on the tea tray and the toiletries in the bathroom were very good.
The whole place is a little tired and jaded, but the owners make the most wonderful hosts. They are helpful, friendly and very welcoming.
Dinner was average, breakfast was nice but limited selection of cereals and no fruit etc. The cooked breakfast was good though.
Our room was warm and comfortable, other areas of the hotel were very cold - including the breakfast room. I also thought downstairs there was a very strong smell of fried food - both in the evening and the next morning which was a little off putting.
We had a reasonable stay here, there are plenty of good things about the hotel, but I don't think we would go back.
