Very friendly staff, made to feel very welcome & excellent location
Unsure if there was anything to help improve
Beautiful period country house
Character and log fires
Drinks choice and prices
The room, views, accessible walks and historical sites are the singular reason to stay here and the wine was excellent but other cocktails expensive.
No ‘do not disturb’ sign available and cleaner came in and out while we were at breakfast but also nearly walked in while we were in the room. Payment on arrival seemed odd given how many extra payments one is likely to make at this restaurant/spa. No clear hotel manager and very obvious inexperience and discontent in the ranks. Older female restaurant manager clearly with too much work to do training younger staff but also rather rude and thoughtless in putting my partner and me in the dark in the restaurant (because we were only on the lounge menu). Lounge design was vile and cold by comparison with the rest of the house. The spa was pokey and the “relaxation room” very uninviting with a window visible to anyone outside (and staff often using the shed opposite). No one clearly managing the spa and my partner and me were made to feel uncomfortable and not welcome when there was (only) another couple already there.
A stunning location, quiet and away from the road around the lake, with amazing views. Large, clean and recently renovated room with huge picture windows and a large bathroom. Wonderful staff, nothing too much trouble. Excellent breakfast.
