Poor1.0 / 5
The entrance hall is quite spectacular but that is the only good bit about this hotel. The whole hotel including the room is completely original back to when it was built, no upgrade of anything including such things as the mattress (which is the most horrible old lump of jump I've ever slept on with every spring sticking into you) no wifi what so ever ,as it was a business trip this was very poor. The shower didn't work, the cold basically turned half a turn and the hot would go on full blast therefore you can either have a scaldering back burner or it's a very minimal dribble. The room was practically on top of the main road which was extremely noises the majority of the night. At around 9 o clock a mass of bass and overly loud music started pumping, when I phone the reception I was told there was a party happening practically under my room until 12 o'clock ! No mention prior to the visit, obviously to late at this point to change rooms as all my belonging were hung up and I was trying to rest ready for work the next morning. Shocking tv in the room, the only feature from this side of the last 50 years. Was told online that the hotel was only 18 miles to my Sunday event destination however when leaving in the morning I was surprised to find in fact it was 50 odd miles ago and took almost an hour! Overall the worst place I've ever stayed and will definitely not be going anywhere near.

An 'OK' stay
Very big hotel, room was very disappointing for a hotel that considers itself up market. Wall paper peeling off the wall. The toilet in the en suite was in a very awkward position. When you say down you would burn your arm on the heated towel rail. Around the toilet basin was very dirty too. Staff on the check in desk and the bar were very good and helpful.

Dated but pleasant.
Hotel is in need of updating. My gf visited 22 years ago and says it's almost exactly the same as when she was last there. It's very characterful though and easy to embrace it. The facilities are good - 2 pools, tennis courts, golf and beautiful garden views. No wifi anywhere except the ground floor?? No safe or minibar in the room in a 4* hotel?? Newspaper wasn't complimentary. Breakfast is nice. Decent selection and a nice breakfast room.

Beautiful setting great grounds excellent 4 price
Lovely hotel for the price. The rooms need a refurbish but for the price everything was fine beds very comfortable and spotlessly clean room every n if the divan base was frayed and some of the fittings were a bit tatty. But you can't fault the hotel on cleanliness, comfort and service.
