Lovely hotel and fantastic spa!
This is a beautiful hotel. It felt like a peek behind the curtains of life in olden times. My daughter and I went on the circular walk and saw swans, ducks, cows and lovely old trees. The spa is second to none with friendly, helpful staff. We had the most fabulous back massage and the lady made us feel very comfortable. The only thing I found uncomfortable about our stay was the way the lady at reception spoke when we checked in. She was in what felt like pushy “sales” mode - will we be having dinner/breakfast. We had planned to but she put us off and we tried to avoid reception for rest of stay, eating elsewhere!

8/10 Very good

A beautiful building, a real privilege to get the chance to stay here. Staff were very professional but not very welcoming. A couple were great particularly the breakfast staff but others seemed to be performing an act. Sometimes the front door was opened for us and sometimes not, what is the point of that?

10/10 Exceptional

This is a stately home owned by the National Trust and we feel fortunate to have stayed in such an amazing building, almost like it was our own home. The staff were so friendly and helpful - nothing too much trouble. Although some facilities were not available due to COVID, our 4 day stay couldnt have been nicer - a truly wonderful break!
