Went for lunch with friends. On arrival no one was present in the bar, there was a note to ask for assistance on reception, so this I did. No one on reception, I rang the bell, no one came, so I rand the hotel phone number........no one answered! Kept ringing the bell until someone finally came. Had
I booked in to stay here
I would have left before this point and found somewhere else! Sadly the place was very tired, and in needed complete refurbishment, it must have been lovely once! I think it's being run down, and will in the near future be developed! So Sad!

We needed a hotel close to the hospital due to a family emergency. There was an error in the booking (made by me-not the hotel). The hotel reception were able to sort out the problem straight away on the phone. In the era of computerised bookings it was wonderful to be able to speak to a kind and helpful person on the end of the phone who managed to sort out the booking error I made straight away.

This probably could have been a 3 star review had my expectations not been set higher by their website.

I stayed in the coach house, and it was quiet, i have to admit, if you want a quiet nights sleep this was good, but its a hotel caught between eras.

It wants to be ye olde country hotel, but its stuck in the late 70's. Tired furniture, tired grounds and in an unfortunate location.

Its not difficult to find if you follow Google Nav or the brown signs directing you from both possible approaches but it is dilapidated from entrance to bed.

The staff were pleasant, the food was okay, its reasonably priced but the smells of damp and worse throughout the areas of the hotel I ventured really let it down.

With oodles of potential, again I think this hotel is stuck between wanting to be a classic and an unforgiven time of cheaper, cleaner and fresher hotels.

Our Ruby Wedding Day coincided with Sunday Night lunch. Perfect private room for twenty guests to enjoy reunion chat with excellent food and unobtrusive efficient service. The Willow Room’s views of the grounds added to the ambience.

My stay here was very comfortable and enhanced by the great staff The bar had friendly clientele but would benefit from some background music and maybe a bit of karaoke!
Only mild irritation was the number of times I had to get my key card revalidated, on one occasion it resulted in me missing an engagement
