Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The surrounding area is beautiful including castle ruins but the hotel itself is awkwardly built. We stayed at the manor house and we walked what seemed like a mile to our room. There were rooms that appeared to be storage areas near us and the stairway adjacent appeared to be under construction. The room itself, while tastefully decorated, was not well maintained. The shower and faucet was dirty, the walls had stains on them, and it had the feel of neglect. It’s very isolated so we ate at the Canopy Restaurant for dinner and breakfast and while the service was fine, the food was terrible. No effort, no flavor, and no creativity. Overall, probably once was beautiful but get the feeling like it’s run down and will continue to be that way with continued neglect.

Ok so the rooms are very nice at A 5* standard , no netflix or YouTube on tv but its there but not working. Room service Food was horrendous! We orderd a stake sandwich the bred was hard and stale , i got fried chicken was like something out of KFC the salads that came with both melas was a handful of lambs lettuce and 1 chopped soggy cherry tomato with a squirt of mayonnaise. The chips where exactly what would get in Mcdonald. The restaurant was booked up on the 2 nights, beacuse the 2nd restaurant was under renovation and not mentioned during booking. I had to make a complaint The manager was helpful and understanding giving the circumstances. I could go on and on.. In my view its a nice building with nice rooms but most definitely not a 5***** service.. and very over priced for the reason.

Hotel with museum vibes
We stayed for one night in a Deluxe double room overlooking the golf course and truly enjoyed our time there. The room was really spacious, with the bathroom having both a walk-in shower and a bathtub. Also of note were the wardrobe and coffee-making facilities in the room, evoking the style of the Orient Express. Even though our room was located in a separate wing to the Manor House, the long and winding corridor to it was full of modern art which gave the overall impression of walking through a museum. During our stay however, this aspect was slightly disturbed by ongoing renovation work for a new reception area. Nevertheless, it wasn't too much of a bother. Having arrived in the evening, we had time to use the spa area before dinner. The pool was long enough for laps. However, the only downside of going so late is missing out on the great views of the estate offered by the huge glass wall. While dinner was as good as expected, we were even more fascinated by the bar area which is located in what seemed to be a ballroom. For breakfast we had a table with a nice view overlooking the gardens and the food options were plentiful. Furthermore, after breakfast we had a lovely walk around the property, which is truly amazing, especially the old castle ruins and the river walk.
