This is a lovely hotel, with beautiful grounds, and the Library Restaurant particularly is beautifully decorated. And to be honest, I don't mind a few chips in the paint and a little wear on the furniture as it makes the place more like a home than an impersonal hotel.
The staff are all great, friendly and helpful: sorry I didn't get many names, but both receptionists, the lady who knew a lot about the history of the house, Gina the waitress, both barmen and the breakfast supervisor were all lovely.
Our room was large enough and the bed comfortable. But... there were two cracked panes in the window, and given the small number of guests I should have expected someone to think 'let's not use that room' and move us to another, particularly as the weather was, finally, appropriate for replacing glass. The room wasn't draughty because of the window, but it was a bit of a blot on the report. Also, someone wasn't paying attention to the crockery - a jug of milk with a chipped lip, a cracked (though not leaking, luckily), teapot with the wrong lid... I noticed, and though I wasn't put out others might have made a fuss.
The dinner we had in the Library was good too; though the chicken liver parfait needed a little more seasoning, the venison was delicious, the cheese board ample and the creme brulee rich and smooth. The wine was good too, and not overpriced compared to some.
I'd love to go back to explore the area when everything's back to normal, and would definitely come back here again.
