All the staff were friendly efficient and very helpful and courteous. Our family joined us for dinner and the restaurant staff atmosphere and food were very good indeed.
Having to leave!
Easy location, very nice room in the courtyard with a really comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. Very good food in the evening and at breakfast. Very helpful staff.
Nothing to complain about!
Overall it is excellent.
Room was very good and clean, just let down by a dirty carpet, reported on departure.
Staff Food Room
The hotel is comfortable, and bedroom well furnished. The bathroom was clean, but towels could be whiter.
On entering the bedroom the glass on the coffee table was not clean and had removable marks on it, the wardrobe mirrors were very dusty, not what we expected.
17th century hotel with lots of character. Nice, happy, friendly staff. Good quality food at both dinner and breakfast.
Busy road close to hotel. Extraordinarily squeaky floorboards!
We came back to the hotel where we had our wedding reception in 1989. It hadn't changed a lot to be honest, except I think the restaurant was better. As a wedding venue it is fantastic - it has the grounds, the wedding licence, the reception rooms etc. Going back after 25 years as a couple was interesting in that it made us realise that at the weekend the venue is geared almost entirely to weddings - there were two occurring when we were there. The room was good, the restaurant food was very good, the staff were helpful and we enjoyed it.
We had to sit with all the wedding guests for breakfast - which when I mentioned this to the reception staff, they acknowledged the issue and offered us a discount to compensate without any quibble.
Disco under our window until 1.00 a.m
We attended a function at the hotel and the food there and for the English Breakfast was excellent. Staff very helpful and friendly. Lovely airy bedroom (we were there in a heatwave)
Nice room .pleasant staff.lots of hot water .warm room.
Windows didn't shut properly.thought meal was a bit expensive for what I got,husbands OK .
Welcome. Ambience. Rooms
Breakfast times didn't fit my schedule. 7am start would have helped. I didn't have breakfast either day... Too late for me at 730 start.
excellent staff very friendly and helpful beautiful room excellent food we had a great time
Staff were very friendly & attentive. Overall opinion of the stay was positive.
I thought the food (evening meal) menu was a little expensive. Although the hotel B&B rate was competitive.
Really friendly staff, good for business travellers
Booking.com need to give better directions for drivers. The post code covers a vast area and a sat nav can take you up to 5 miles away (but on the right road).....the staff say it is a common problem so why not fix it Booking.com?
Lovely place, good atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff
To really nit-pick - the parking was a bit tight!
Very good food, excellent service. A really good stay
A smell of paint(?) in the bedroom
The rooms were very spacious and the bathrooms were luxurious. We were in the newer courtyard area which is apparently nicer than the older rooms!
The obliging staff plus the breakfast !!
The fact that we were upgraded to a supreme double room that was quite seperate to the main hotel & unfortunately had not been hoovered & wasn't particularly clean in the toilet area which had a distinct odour. The staff found us a different room albeit not an upgraded one.
Overall ambience & cosy atmosphere. Staff all very professional.
Family type friendly staff who were interested in you having a good time.
Lack of car parking at night
Nice environment, good food
Booked a Double room, with single occupancy On arrival I was given a single, and was told that is what I had booked. I hadn't and the paperwork confirmed the same. Fortunately the room was changed to the correct one
Luxury room bed size small for a double Was not told wedding on and we were above a disco Slow service at breakfast due to wedding party
good location great room
The staff very nice to us the food was amazing and the room was outstanding we love it that much we are having our wedding vows there next year. Beautiful hotel
Nice restaurant and the food was fabulous. Situated in a very quaint location. The rooms were very nicely equipped
The noise was terrible. I was in room 26 and at 12pm the generator kicked in outside my room so couldnt sleep. The heat all over the hotel ii unbearable with no air conditioning and little ventilation. They really should provide fans! There are scenes all over the hotel as regards fox hunting. Not all of us are into 'blood sports' and can see this as offensive
