A mixed bag
Posted Jan 4, 2017
This is a lovely, period (sort of) hotel. The grounds are beautiful. The older historic buildings are fascinating. The location is wonderful. The check in took a long time (we stayed here on Friday night, November 25) and while we were waiting in line, the power went off for 5 minutes. They need a swifter check in. The facilities (the "new" part) are dated and unattractive, but they surround a lovely courtyard. Our room was fine. Suitable and comfortable, but starting to feel a bit outdated. It is a real shame too that the on-site restaurant & bar, in the basement of one of the historic buildings, offer no view/vintage point of the lovely grounds. It feels cold and the furnishings need updating. All in all, if you want the feel of an historic lodging experience in a nice, comfortable, well-situated hotel, we can recommend this (but keep your expectations 'average').
