Stayed for two nights in this hotel inclusive of meals and some treats. The top floor room was comfortable with wonderful views across the river valley and grounds. The name references the abundance of wood panelling in the main house, which is an unusual decor but impressive nonetheless. Historic photos are mixed with more modern artwork in the restaurant.
The breakfast and dinner were very enjoyable with excellent choices at each sitting.
The grounds were tidy but when the summer season begins may be very colourful indeed with their elevated position providing good views around.
Waiting staff at breakfast were very good, but lesser numbers in the evening lead to slower and slightly less attention.
On arrival it was not immediately apparent where reception staff were, but when we looked in the bar and were finally contacted were helpful. Be aware that the majority of staff we encountered were not immediately identifiable as such, as there were no name badges or obvious uniform as such.More
