We stayed at this hotel for two nights for a family wedding. The hotel is a beautiful building situated in large private grounds. The room we were allocated was large and well appointed, but extremely warm with no way to cool it down. It was on the second floor and in the shade of a large tree, but in the height of summer there was just no air flow, even with the window wide open.
We ate in the restaurant the first evening and enjoyed the food, but the service needed tightening up. We were seated and given menus, but no drinks order was taken. We ordered our meal and tried to order wine, but the waitress said a barmaid would come over. The barmaid arrived and took our order, and then our starters arrived. We had actually finished our starters before the wine arrived at the table, which was annoying and frustrating. The food however was excellent, with the menus providing excellent choices for vegetarians.
The wedding itself appeared to be managed well and everything went smoothly. I used the gym facilities, which although temporary and housed in a portacabin, are actually superb and better than most hotel gyms.
Breakfasts were fresh and tasty with plenty of variety. The wi-fi was free.
We're unlikely to be back in Lincolnshire any time soon, but would recommend the hotel as a place to stay. less
