No control over events

Thank you for your comments and I can appreciate your frustration, controlling other guests that have consumed too much alcohol is never an easy task. The Duty Manager has been spoken to regarding this but ultimately comments made by the staff can be easily ignored by customers. I am sorry if this tarnished your night somewhat but I hope you enjoyed other aspects of the evening. We have also received a complaint from the couple that were asked to leave. It seems comedy nights always leads to issues we have therefore decided not to hold any more in the future. Regards, Andrew.

Denis, thank you for your review and positive comments. We recognise how important a fast stable internet connection is and that's why we have our own leased line for customers to use. Room 5 is located in an original building adjacent to the hotel which has 10 rooms, this building dates back to when the original manor house was built and does have the odd creak if guests are above but this should not have impacted your stay too much, never the less this will be investigated along with your other comments. Should you stay with us again please ask to be located in the Georgian accommodation where you have stayed previously. regards, Andrew

Comfortable rooms but check they are clean

This looks a beautiful hotel as you drive in. Unfortunately when I checked in I had to ask to move rooms twice due to the cleanliness. One room had clearly not been vacuumed, and the second room had n... more

Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm very surprised that you had to move rooms, our housekeeping staff normally do a superb job and we pride ourselves on our cleanliness which scores highly in the majority of our feedback. I hope this relatively small oversight does not deter you from staying with us again. regards, Andrew.
