Booked and paid for through the company but rates seemed pretty reasonable. Check-in efficient and friendly and allocated a room in the annexe which was a few steps back out the main door and to the right of the hotel as you approach.
The room wasn't big but more than adequate for a single night business trip and was equipped with a very comfortable bed, plenty of hanging space in the wardrobe, small desk with plenty of power sockets (important for laptops, tablets, smartphones etc,) and a well stocked tea/coffee tray. The bathroom was a little small and getting in and out required some manoeuvring around the door and wc but no big deal.
Enjoyed a very well presented and tasty 3 course meal in the dining room later that evening and a few drinks from the small but adequately stocked bar. Following morning the buffet breakfast was ok, not up to the standard of the evening meal but tasty and set me up for the day ahead.
Check-out was as easy as check-in and staff were at all times polite and courteous.
Views over the countryside from the terrace were very nice, aided by the excellent weather at the end of June. Free wifi throughout the hotel with good speeds meant I was able to work without the worry/frustration of disconnection etc.
Would certainly return to take in more of the wonderful countryside and leave the laptop at home!
