Positive Reviews

Tasty food.

There are many positive reviews about the food commenting on the varied menu, the fresh produce that is cooked to perfection and then presented beautifully. The service in the restaurant is also very efficient and guests can choose to eat outside on the terrace if they wish.

World class croquet.

Many rooms in the hotel overlook the gardens and the croquet lawn. This lawn is used by many world class players in this sport.

Charming hotel.

The hotel is decorated in a very traditional manner giving character and atmosphere and this style also fits well with the age of the building. Guests have enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and it is also a popular place to hold weddings and other events. There are large gardens that are extremely well kept and a pleasant place to spend a couple of hours.

Negative Reviews

Unreliable Wi-Fi.

There is Wi-Fi available to guests, but this can be very unreliable and the system frequently has to be reset, much to the frustration of a handful of guests.

Looking a bit tatty.

In places the hotel is starting to show a lot of wear and tear which includes carpets needing replacing and windows not closing properly. It feels tatty and out-dated and for the price paid needs a renovation. Some guests feel that it could also benefit from having a deep clean too.

Surly staff.

The hotel has received mixed reviews on its staff with some members being mentioned as giving superior customer service and others being accused of severely impacting on guests stay due to a miserable attitude. This is also evident in the hotel’s public responses to negative reviews where they have come across as argumentative and rude.
