    The staff are positive and helpful and certainly make you feel welcome. The dinning experience in the restaurant was very enjoyable and a very pleasant dining experience. The menu provided good options and also catered for gluten free.

    The first room we were offered on the second floor and was exceptionally basic. Yes, it was clean but that is all I can say for it. The bathroom was old and tired with the evidence of mould / damp on the walls. Thankfully we were able to obtain a room change. The second room was a vast improvement having recently been renovated and was more in keeping with the promotional material. Critically no access and then very limited access to wifi. Many apologies about it being fix but no resolution. Wifi for international travellers is critical and in this day and age given what you pay for a room it is a service that should work.

    Wonderful breakfast

    I'm actually involved within London's deluxe hospitality sector. I loved the setting and location, but overall, the hotel appeared sadly drab, dated and very 'tired'. Flowers on the dining tables would make a considerable difference, plus improved lighting, framed period wall hangings, instead of loose canvases and warmer period wallpapers/painting. The carpets are clearly being 'wet-cleaned' and appeared dull. The reception seating should be changed and restructured. Not very inviting.. The staff were wonderful

    Hotel rooms were really lovely with the most comfortable bed I think I have slept in a hotel! The staff were brilliant, very friendly and great fun! Unfortunately the weather didn’t let us see the grounds so we will be back in the summer!

    Floorboards in the hallway

    Very charming hotel and location. Dining room was lovely and we were well looked after even though we were a large group. Fabulous setting

    Some rooms need refurbishing
