Pleasant stay
The hotel was a pleasant stay, the bed amazingly comfortable and the room size was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast wasn’t great and pretty basic with no offer of any extras for vegetarians. Something that could be improved. Overall a really good stay and would re visit again.

Fab stay
Really enjoyed the swim in the outdoor pool set in a pretty garden. Lovely large, tastefully refurbish room and bathroom. Very helpful staff. Carried a heavy bag up to our room. Answered questions about the history of the property. Informative and fun.

Fab place
Loved my stay. Bedroom beautifully decorated, bed comfy. Outdoor pool amazing. Only down sides were that due to the strong smell of paint in the room 111 I had to keep window wide open and curtains to let fresh air in, so woke early due to sunlight and speeding cars along road. Shame speed bumps can’t be put in along road as cars sped very fast dangerous to cross.
