We stayed 2 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. Upon arrival the reception staff were extremely friendly, booked in and showed us to our room, (171) the room was clean and well presented with what appeared to be a fairly new update in the bathroom. The view from our window looked out towards the village church, n the positive side, unfortunately it was near the staff entrance to the kitchen area, so there was noise both early and quite late at night with a bottle bank nearby, (this did not cause us any problems personally but could to others) we ate in the restaurant both nights, the food was excellent and plentiful staff polite and very helpful. Likewise in the morning breakfast was a mixture of Continental or English, plenty to eat and hot. Staff again polite and very helpful.
We walked around the grounds which was lovely, the building itself is very charming and has quite a bit of history dating back to 11th century.
The swimming pool area was really hot, uncomfortably so, the pool itself was clean and appeared well maintained.
The pub on site was a bonus although we did walk further afield Nene Park and surrounding area.
On the Saturday we were there, the hotel catered for a Wedding and also a Birthday party which the really catered well with the numbers attending the functions and guests at the hotel. less
