Situated in what seems like the middle of nowhere as you drive up a long driveway, it commands a high view of the surrounding countryside. We were located in one of the outbuildings a short distance from the main hotel.
It's a very stylish and modern décor, that is in the process of being upgraded to the same standards throughout. The room was very nice to look at, but was extremely hot, with no visible signs of heating and no way to turn it down. The small window gave no respite.
For a modern conversion it was quite pokey, with very little space to move around, nowhere to put a suitcase, no spare sockets for charging or using appliances and nowhere to sit properly if you wanted to use a laptop, without either sitting at a small shelf underneath the telly or sitting out in strange passageway with the kettle!. The towels and toiletries were also annoyingly hidden away in drawers, so I didn't find the shower mat until it was too late as I didn't recognise it as different to a towel - I did at least find the towels which I heard another guest talking about, as they hadn't.
The food however was excellent. A plentiful breakfast and excellent dinner menu which included made to order pizzas which is obviously their speciality. It also has wedding and conference facilities.
I'd definitely eat there again, but would want a better room another time. less
