I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that the accommodation is not as advertised on booking sites. As mentioned in other reviews, the building is not actually Lydiard House although that's often the case on these grand estates and in my case, I didn't even...More

If it has closed, that would be so disappointing. It had so much potential and the staff were so enthusiastic about trying to keep the place as professional and well heeled as possible.
