This place has unbelievably great service. Staff are very friendly but also very professional. The garden suite we stayed in was tastefully decorated with a beautiful bathroom and eating at the Snooty Fox topped off a lovely night. Portions are also generous 👍👍

Fantastic dinner. Excellent room but disapointing breakfast. Buffet breakfast because “we have a large group today”. Cold plates, cold scrambled eggs, cold bacon and cold pork sausage. Coffee was very good. For the price we expected much better. Staff very well trained and friendly.More
