Not worth the money
Liked: Nice grounds
Disliked: I stayed here in July 2022. The facilities were dated. Outdoor pool full of leaves and dead flies. (Two ladies next to me were joking about how they could have their 5 a day or protein fix from spending time in there) The spa area untidy, beds left unmanaged with wet towels/blankets everywhere. Most importantly the food? it was below average. I ordered a Greek salad for lunch @£10 and the it came in a warm bowl and looked/tasted pre made with cucumber which was off. Dinner was similar- pre made and reheated. I sent my main course back because the chicken was cold and they reserved the same dish (cold chicken) just a little warmer after been put under the grill. The staff are lovely.. just not enough of them with much experience. For the price of this place for a spa weekend. Be mindful, you may only get value from the naturally beautiful ground.. but not the food/facilities.

Liked: The dinner was lovely
Disliked: The hidden costs, I was charged £35 for lunch, when no one told me this was available. This was a supplement charge & complementary lunch! Check in at 5pm-checkout at 10am??? No clear checking in time via emails, I was given multiple emails including check in times of ?..1pm, 2pm & 5pm? No one answered emails, no telephone to answer. This is such a shame, they have lost a returning customer!

Liked: Totally wonderful stay. The staff are excellent especially the lovely Anna on reception. Anna was wonderful and took time and care to modify my booking and get me a ground floor room because I have had spinal surgery. The food was lovely and fresh in the dining area with lots of fresh fruit. The seving staff were so lovely and attentive. The swimming pool was amazing and got alot quieter later in the evening.
Disliked: Nothing. I loved my stay.

Looking forward to returning as...
Liked: Excellent food especially dinner. Courteous, friendly, helpful staff. Enjoyed the range of facilities in the spa area. Would like to have a longer visit next time.
Disliked: Restaurant and Orangery stopped serving teas and coffees after 5pm but staff provided us with tea at our request. Maybe would be a good idea to have a self service machine for guests to use rather than having to go back to rooms to get tea!
