    Good hotel with exceptionally friendly staff and lovely garden. Very dog friendly, with dogs welcome to enjoy the garden with their owners. Excellent value for money. Didn't try the restaurant for dinner but breakfast first class.

    The decor and rooms were very grand and the staff were very pleasant and helpful, and close enough to walk to nearby town.

    The exterior paintwork desperately needed refurbishment, it would give more kerb appeal.

    I enjoyed the quitnesss of my room and quitness of the restaurant for breakfast

    I wanted to check in at 1pm but I was asked to wait for thirty minutes. When I returned half an hour later, I was reluctantly allowed to check in. Surely 1pm isn't too early, or is it?

    Staff supervision appeared non existant.Breakfast was poor. Shown to table , asked about tea/coffee,toast. No instructions as to how service (self) worked , no follow up to ascertain if any special order required ie poached egg. Fruit and serving bowls had run out had to find staff and ask to replenish - only fruit rrived had to request bowls second time. Breakfast had been in hot tray too long therefore fried eggs hard and rubbery.General no help with baggage. Hotel generally in a tired condition and requires updating

    The staff were very kind to my husband and self. He is disabled and they looked after us well, in a ground floor room. The meals were good and afternon tea on the terrace was idilic. The hotel was just right for the older people, quiet, easy walk to the town and gardens, A short drive to the country and lots of interesting places.

    Ideally situated to walk into city centre, approx. Five minutes.Room overlooking nice garden with well tended flower beds and croquet lawns. Good breakfasts. Good, simple to operate, shower. Useful Tavern attached. Reaxing to sit on terrace and eat/drink.

    Room too small if having more that one suitcase, had to rejig furniture. Bathroom a bit narrow. Small lift, unable to take two cases and two adults.

    The location was perfect. The staff and general level of services were very good. The value for money was good and the whole trip was a delightfull experience.

    Although it made no difference to me personaly, I was surprised that there was no mention of the restuarant being only open at week- ends in the pre- booking information. The food and service in the Bar/ Bistro were perfectly good but some people may find this a problem.
