Very good 8.0
Lovely stay - Shame about the bed
Lovely hotel in peaceful setting with great food and spa facilities. We received a free upgraded but unfortunately due to the hot weather we had to sleep with the windows open and had to listen to the whirring of the air conditioning units on the ground floor below room 26. Pillows lovely and comfy but bed was too firm for a good nights sleep

Exceptional 10.0
Fabulous hotel with character and amazing spa
Comfortable room. Delicious food served by attentive, knowledgeable staff. Lovely gardens. The spa area was the best I’ve ever been to and the food was restaurant standard not just sandwiches and salad. I will definitely be returning soon.

Fair 4.0
Need to invest in Air con or supply fans in room
Room really hot - no fan available in the room - On ground floor and window was large that someone could enter so didn't want to leave open.. Fire alarm went off at 1am... No staff outside to give anyone any guidance and then in the morning no mentioned that we were all stood outside for 15 minutes in the rain.. I would of thought that the breakfast team or reception on checking out would have apologised for this disruption. Glad i didn't stay there the previous week when the weather was in the high 20ies...would of been it was it was the worst night sleep i have had in a long time.

Poor 2.0
Had to wait 45mins for my evening meal and when it came it looked like a starter. 3 small pieces of lamb, 2 tiny carrots and a small portion of mash, and the waiter was as miserable as sin. Breakfast wasn't any better, I only wanted bacon and scrambled egg, the bacon was burned and the scrambled egg was again a tiny portion. On check out, the girl at the desk didn't even ask me how my stay was, couldn't wait for me to pay and leave and when i asked for an invoice for the room she wouldn't give me one as I booked through this site. No apology no nothing. Rubbish service, awful food, shame as the hotel itself is good.
