Waitress in restaurant didn't speak good English and was quite rude
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel where the staff were pleasant courteous and helpful. I stayed there last year to attend a wedding and this year to go to a party in the village hall. It was interesting to note that there was another wedding taking place on the Saturday from noon and still going strong at midnight with the staff still smiling.
I liked the peaceful setting and the spacious car park and the little things like there being complementary water in the room. Al;so, even though there were weddings over the weekend we were not disturbed by too much noise.
The hotel was obviously very busy with weddings - this meant that service was slightly affected.
Peaceful & convenient for our needs that weekend.
The shower did not work - it was easier to rinse my hair under the running bath tap than to tease water out of the shower head.
The best breakfast I have ever had. The room was a good size and comfortable.
Impressive building - particularly when seen from the inside. Quiet surroundings and nicely landscaped gardens.
Breafast is not good value for money, unless you pre-book it the night before to get a discounted price. If you haven't got much time to spare, make sure that you order your cooked breakfast as you arrive at the restaurant. No wi-fi. Choice of tv channels rather limited.
Fantastic staff who were extremely helpful
Nice surrounding area, impressive building, everything clean and in working order.
Noise and food.
The friendly atmosphere and good service despite there being a wedding in progress. The receptionist was excellent.
The hot water in the bathroom would not get hot enough for me and the shower head leaked (it gave a reasonable shower depite this though)
Friendly helpful staff, good food, beautiful garden.
The shower in our room didnt work and there was no one in maintenace over the Easter weekend to rectify this.
