We have stayed in a couple of other Q Hotels, and this is the best by far. It's an amazing place, full of little corridors and oak-panelled rooms, with coloured marble floors, carvings, stained glass, antiques, ornate ceilings and old staircases. We spent our first evening exploring the place - a big treat. There's not much to the grounds but the main building more than makes up for it.
We had paid extra for a room in the old part of the hall, and were upgraded to a four-poster. Our room was spacious, clean, and convenient, and the bed was comfy. Not much of a view from the window, though, because we seemed to be slightly below ground level.
Our only complaint was that our room opened onto the main corridor, so with several business meetings being hosted in the building, we were disturbed into the wee small hours by delegates loudly making their way back to their rooms. At one point in the night, we were woken by someone pushing a rattly trolley along the corridor.
We ate in the restaurant both nights, and found the food to be good, although sometimes a little bland. Breakfasts were good and plentiful.
The swimming pool was an impressive size for a hotel. But do be careful of the tiled floor surrounding it - it is VERY slippery when you've got wet feet.
All in all, a great midweek break.
