Stayed here for our 40th anniversary. Room was spotless and food was great. A beautiful hotel set in beautiful surroundings, gardens are stunning as is the hotel. Staff extremely friendly and nothing is a problem. This hotel is a hidden gem. Will Definitely be back.

We have just returned from our wedding at the Mill Forge on the 30 March. We could not fault it in any way. The room was absolutely stunning (no. 30) included a 4 poster bed and jet bath. There were chocolates and sparkly wine in the room on our arrival and the wine was replenished the following day. All of...

I went up for my brothers wedding. It was all wonderful apart from a few hiccups. Tv was useless. Only had patchy freeview as the signal was so bad. No WiFi in the rooms. At all. A range extender would solve this problem. The heating broke. It was so hot in that room I think I lost weight just sleeping...

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. Obviously I am disappointed with some of your comments. Since your stay in October we have addressed some of the issues, namely the decor in the rooms, the pillows and the square sausage. We are currently looking at extending the WiFi so it is available in all rooms. Whatever the issues...
