Lovely stay
Beautiful old main building which morphed into modern clean annex where our room was situated. Lovely superior room with balcony overlooking grounds. The only issue was the room was quite hot and my ceiling fan did not work. However this was rectified by my he staff immediatley bro gin me a desk fan and some cold water as refreshment.
