We went to a wedding on Friday night and got there a few hours before check in in the afternoon.Noproblem we were allowed to get into the rooms hours early. Therooms were great.spacious with setees chaors and superb "power showers". The staffare something else .Whoever recruited and traonedyjem deserves a big gold star! ! Every songleoneofthem from cleaners to maintenance staff met you with abig smile and a freindly hello, nothingwas toomuch trouble for anyone day or night, each one of them treats you as if they own the place, probably the best staff of any hotel that I've been in, supeeb! A lovelybar with lovely huge leather setees and roaring fires and a huge choice of whiskeys and spirits and yet again , a great barman and a superbly helpful night porter. Buffet breakfast with a choice of everything you could think of which you could visit as many timesasyou wanted.the wedding at the stables was excellent, brilliantly managed with great food and yet again, superb staff whichseems to be a trade mark of the place.
A great experience and a hotel which iwill find any excuse to visit again and again , I could safely recommend it to anyone. Also it's set in lovely country grounds and has a great spa and pool all free to hotel guests.
The only thing that slightly tarnished things was booking with Late rooms.com. We booked 6weeks ago but once we got there other people , who had just directly rang the hotel and booked directly, had paid £40 less than us. This is the 3rd time we have been "ripped off" by LateRooms.com and we will not be using them again and recommend anyone else doesn't use them eithier. less
