Lovely stay!
Faultless in terms of service, atmosphere, views and character. Cream teas in front of large open fires on a cold November day - bliss! Lovely Bar area and other reception rooms. Delicious breakfast, Our rooms were a bit ‘tired’ though (Grotty, draughty window frames, wallpaper and bathroom need a refurb) and our room was above the kitchens where the noise from fans were intrusive until 10pm (which wasn’t such a problem) but then began again early in the morning which was a bit more disturbing. Beds huge and comfortable. We’d definitely go back. No lift so limited access for those with a disability.

Lovely view and amazing and cosy hotel
Staff were all really friendly and breakfast and dinner both excellent. Hotel has an amazing view and the hotel has a fab library, and a bar! Good location as a base and stayed wonderful 4 days. Loved the stay and we’d go back :)

Staff helped make this a pleasant stay.
Staff were friendly and helpful but system required you to summon them to the reception desk or bar from the dinning room for service. Room was comfortable but without enough thought to giving you enough surface space to dry your hair or Dom your make up. Decor a little tired. Grill menu a little limited but food was good, however I am pleased we were only eating a one night as I would soon run out of options. Daily specials would be a good idea.

Good 6.0
Mixed experience
Need to qualify this feedback as it is based on one night, room only late booked, and ‘only two rooms left’ information. So room was at the top of the hotel and overlooked some sheds. The hotel was as seen in photos and overall very comfortable with great lounges and lovely views and garden areas. The staff were friendly and helpful. However, unfortunately, the evening meal was a car crash. It has two restaurants one gourmet with 7 course meal, and the other still attractive restaurant the Grille where we ate. Starters were ok, but our Mains were an over priced car crash. It could have been an off-day, so advice is just be ready to send back.

Probably great for dog W red , but not for us.
Nice location and outlook to the front of the building. Taster menu interesting and service excellent. Dogs allowed , not well controlled and barking in the lovely lounge bar means we are not likely to return,

Great stay
Hotel very comfortable and staff extremely helpful. Just slightly disappointing choice of food in the restaurant but this didn’t spoil our stay as there are lots of excellent local restaurants.

Lovely stay
The weather was typical drizzly lakes but the hotel was charming and warming, lovely wood burning fire always cracking away as we came in dripping wet. The restaurant, and breakfast, was very good, lovely dishes and great deserts.

Better choise of dinner options is required. Only 7 course tasting menu or bar meals are offerd, nothing inbetween
