Tailor made
What a wonderful trip. Last before we are expecting a baby. I’d told them that and they tailored everything to suit our needs. Superb service and beautiful hotel/ surroundings

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Standard room nice but a bit basic for this class if hotel. No mirror in bedroom? Nothing wrong and main areas of hotel are just stunning.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Lacking Attention to Detail
This could be a nice property but whether it is due to COVID 19 or other factors, it is lacking somewhat. The grounds are nice and the 4-mile circular bike route is a treat, but too many other factors need to be addressed. Calls to Room Service, Guest Services and even the Operator(!) ring endlessly and go unanswered. The main restaurant, The Glasshouse, has a very limited menu of relatively bland food and a weak wine list. We stayed in the West Wing and, while our room was very spacious and well-appointed, the hallways are lined with terribly designed closets featuring large protruding hinges. Like so many aspects of the hotel, this could have been done much better.
