We stayed for one night based on the TA reviews and memories of a business stay a number of years ago.
Our overall impression is of slight disappointment, partly influenced by the foul weather that accompanied our stay. However this also highlighted one of the disadvantages of staying in the hotel which comprises a number of buildings spread around the grounds. Whilst the buildings add a
lot of character, this is poor compensation when walking along footpaths in the dark in pouring rain and strong winds, whilst making your way from your room to the hotel restaurant, bar or spa.The plentiful supply of hotel umbrellas did not protect shoes and clothes from the the forces of the elements.
Our room was very comfortable and warm with a large comfortable bed and nice ensuite bathroom, although this was in need of a bit of TLC. The hotel spa was very good and well managed, although we both found our lower level lockers difficult to use. However this was a small issue compared to the excellent massage we received on the warm, water bed tables. This was a first for me and was really outstanding experience.
We both found dinner a disappointment. We had the Tasting Menu which from memory had a £60 price tag. Frankly the only memorable course was the soufflé which was part of the selection of deserts, with my tomato starter particularly disappointing and lacking in taste. Our other negative comment concerns the restaurant staff who were very young, inexperienced, and from other countries speaking very limited English. This led to a number of misunderstandings with guests during the meal serving which whilst somewhat amusing was very unprofessional for a hotel and restaurant of this standing.
