We visited the sister hotel, 'Northcote Manor' in Devon earlier this year and was expecting similar exceptional standards.
On arrival staff were helpful and courteous. The room was small and cosy, but well equipped. The bathroom was in need of a bit of TLC, with toilet roll holders falling off and paint fading on the walls and bath.
During the evening meal, we did not feel the service was quite up to what would have been expected at a hotel of this stature. Many of the waiters and waitresses were surly and rude, dropped food and water over the table upon service. Furthermore, contrary to what is stated on the website, many guests turned up to dinner in t-shirts and jeans, which took away the ambiance that should have been created.
However, the grounds, gardens and spa were fantastic! It was exquisitely quiet and relaxing throughout the whole grounds.
It is well worth a visit for the relaxing weekend, however be warned that dinner service is not as would be and should be expected unfortunately.
