Upon arriving, the double metal gate entry was very grand with the grounds well kept and welcoming. The Welcome Sign had our name on it - providing a special feel. The gravel parking area was difficult for wheeled luggage. Check in was a breeze. The room we were assigned was quite small with a large bathroom. The bed had a hump of foam separating the two sides - not a nice touch for a "romantic" get away. The staff removed it the next morning, as well as added additional padding for the very hard bed. Storage was adequate for our clothes but no place to store our luggage. The room safe did not work, couldn't figure out the instructions. The towels in the bathroom were clean but thin and some were frayed; they should be replaced. The soap, shampoo and conditioner were good quality but had to ask that they be replenished. Breakfast was very European - eggs prepared as requested, breads, pancakes, croissants, cheeses, jams, fresh fruit, meats, coffee/tea/juice and yogurt parfait. I don't know if we would stay again, but it was an experience, with the setting a real treat. We were not able to eat dinner at the Manor but it seemed to be a real treat. It felt as if you were a guests at a grand country house, with the rooms warm by both the heater, as well as caring staff.
