Although there is some distant noise from the motorway a few miles away, it is greatly out weighed by this lovely hotel set in stunning grounds sitting on the side of a canal. There are a number of outside sitting areas each with different views; the canal basin watching the barge boats pass, or the side area over looking a smalll pool within an encolsed area of trees or out the front of the hotel overlooking a large duck pond. I would be doubtful if this hotel has a room without a view.
The staff were all helpful and friendly even although during our stay there was a wedding in progress we were never made to feel that we were in the way and any enquiry was dealt with promptly.
Although the restaurant was fully booked you can get meals in the bar area, the food was excellant and the breakfast the following morning is of a high quality and a vast range of choice.
The bedrooms were beutifully presented and spotless.
As already stated there is some slight noise from motorway traffic (our room was facing the back overlooking the canal) but for the quality of the meals and the pleasent surroundings this is small price to pay. We will definately be back.
