We came and stayed the night here as part of a wedding party. The hotel is beautiful and well-maintained as are the surrounding grounds. The rooms are very clean and quiet and well-decorated. Staff are attentive and deal well with pressure - there was more than one wedding party on the same day and the staff handled this very well....

We booked very last minute for a party of 6 for a birthday/Easter afternoon tea. Lovely setting and table laid out beautifully. The food was amazing especially the special Easter themed cakes. Our waiter Robert couldn't do enough for us, bring us more tea and sandwiches and making sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommended for a lovely afternoon.
