A lovely stay in a beautiful setting. Rooms are very good and the hotel facilities are excellent. Some areas such as furniture in bar in need of investment but otherwise could not fault. Oh and the food was excellent as were the Spa treatments.

10/10 Exceptional

Love the history of the property, the stunning surroundings, the friendliness of the staff and the general vibe. It helped to make the propery feel like a home away from home. The staff could have been sharper. From forgetting breakfast orders, dietary requirements and other requests, I expect higher level of service from staff at a hotel of this quality.
