Lovely hotel with friendly reception staff. Garden room excellent idea, nice toiletries and fab shower. Restaurant menu a bit expensive and I’ve no idea why gingerbread was on my plate with scallops (1 scallop cut into 4) breakfast great and the steam train at the bottom of the garden idyllic. Would recommend a visit

Liked: Cleanliness
We had stayed here before and really liked it, but this time we had a very poor room overlooking the back . The room was really hot and overlooked the kitchen extension which seemed to have a wood fire which meant that the room smelled of smoke when the wondow was open. If you stay here, insist on a room at the front of the hotel. The staff are friendly, but the overall management is pretty poor. This is the first paperless hotel I have stayed in and you don't get an itemised bill, which seems ridiculous.
