Food in the restaurant was appalling, and with the seriously hefty pricetag attached I did not want to spend another penny in the hotel after eating there. Service at breakfast was poor with 2 out of 3 mornings having to ask for tea and toast several times and we actually gave up on toast altogether on the first morning.availability of staff to settle bills in the bar was also difficult to come by. power in the rainshower was poor and the hand shower was broken with water spurting out of the tubing. Spa area overall was a bit disappointing, sauna floor was dirty and looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in a couple of weeks. This is a 4 star building with 3 star service and spa facilities charging 5 star prices, I would never stay here again and would actively advise people against staying here, you can get much much more for your money elsewhere in the country.
Bar food was good, hotel lounge areas were beautiful, grounds were well kept, free welcome non alcoholic hot cider was a nice touch, bathrooms in bedrooms are very nice. This was an excellent restoration project.
