lovely country hotel

Very close to attractions in the local area. Great luggage and valet service, friendly and knowledgable staff giving great tips on how to get the best out of your stay- especially Jack who was at the door and opened my car door on arrival and was outside with a very friendly and fabulous temperament even thought it was absolutely freezing outside! Mention for Dave in the Stables restaurant and zoltan the golf cart driver- never had a 2 min driving experience like it but added laughter to the evening. Topped off by breakfast in our room and trip to the spa!

Unbelievable hotel

I booked this hotel cause I wanted something really nice for my missus for her birthday, we couldn't have been happier. Brilliant hotel, very nice food. The bed was a little harder than we are used to but everything was great! Close to the train station too!
