This is a beautifully quirky hotel with tons of history. It looks really old and is very rambling, set over many acres. The main building offers two restaurants and many conference rooms. We stayed in a Saturday and Sunday night. There were multiple weddings and other celebrations taking place so the place was very buzzy. Sunday was a total opposite, with hardly anyone in for breakfast Monday morning. Our low cost room was located in a block about 10 to 15 minutes walk away, not good when it was raining when we emerged from the restaurant. The room we had was sizable, but no hot drink making facilities. To compensate, the hotel has free tea and coffee in their Bake Shoppe. But that is a good walk away and it was annoying not to be able to have a cuppa when we woke up. We visited the Old Sturbridge Village on the Sunday (well worth a visit) and we arrived back at our room at 17.00. The room is so far away from the main hotel it had not been serviced. Our room key did not work.... They had only programmed it for one night. That was a car ride away to fix. Overall, an interesting place to stay, better if you have the money to stay in the main Hotel area.
