Got married here on 4th November. The day couldn't have been more perfect. From the outset the wedding co-ordinator Kerry made sure that the day was exactly how we wanted it and Shaun, the duty manager kept everything running smoothly and in order on the day. The verina suite, which was refurbished earlier this year looked absolutely amazing. The food...

We got married on the 8th of October in the Old Inn and had both ceremony and reception there. From our first meeting with Kerry until the wedding day itself the support and service was fantastic. Nothing was to much trouble and all of the staff absolutely and completely went over and above to insure we had a fantastic day....

Amazing history and great decor. Friendly staff. Food is excellent. Each room has a specific name and each is unique. Wondeful stay, can't wait to visit again! The grounds are beautiful and overall it was a great stay.

I can't comment on the accommodation, but I can on the facilities for an event. We attended a wedding here (my father's) and it was excellent. The team, led by Shaun, did a sterling job, the food was excellent and the venue was very well decorated. I can highly recommend it to anyone considering it.

Had a great overnight stay here. Beautiful room, great breakfast made to order. The fish and chips in the bar were super however we only got 2 teaspoonfuls of garden peas. Only one problem, the staff at reception are rather snobbish in their attitude, they need to drop the over the top posh accents and be friendlier.
