    Car park and road up to the hotel could do with resurfacing. We had a relaxing massage in the spa, it was excellent! Various treatments are available. Definitely book beforehand to be sure of availability. We stayed one night (a Saturday night). Dinner was nice, a bit expensive, but that was expected. Our room was very nice and had most of what could be expected, complementary tea varients, coffee and chocolate were nice, a little fridge in the room was handy. The only down point for us is that the bed mattress proved too soft, so we didn't sleep so well and awoke needing another massage. As well as having a spa, this looks like it would be a great wedding venue. Nice garden for photos. Children's play area, large chess board, tennis courts. Finally, the staff were great, very friendly and helpful.

    We stayed 3 nights over Christmas and it was absolutely wonderful. The food, accommodation and staff were all first class. The Hall is huge and decorated beautifully for the festive season with tasteful Christmas trees everywhere. The place was immaculate and the team working there couldn't do enough to help and ensure we were well looked after and attended to, at all times. The quality of the food, choice of menus and amazing flavors were fantastic. The sparkling English wine was flowing on the first night! I would highly recommend this for a break any time but especially at Christmas. Beautiful grounds, walks, a tennis court and activities including laser shooting and falconry all add to the amazing experience. We had the Liddell Suite which was really spacious, luxurious and had wonderful views. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable - your staff team really are second to none.

    We stayed here for a night and a spa trip and were blown away by the service and the food. Everyone was so welcoming and went out of their way to help from the moment we arrived to when we left. The room was clean, had everything we needed and had beautiful high ceilings. The fox bar and lounge and tea room is lovely and very relaxing. The food at the restaurant was outstanding. The grounds were also stunning and great for a little walk outside. The spa is quite small but they limited the number of people for each timeslot so it never felt crowded. The treatments were lovely (we had a pedicure and Swedish massage) they even gave us a free glass of prosecco for checking us into the spa a little late! . Only minor comments were some of the paint and furnishings could do with a touch up and some acoustic panelling in the restaurant would go a long way to help some of the echoing noise. Overall it was fantastic value for money and a wonderful stay - we'd definitely stay again and recommend.

    Only there for a spa and lunch. Can’t say much about the spa except it’s smaller than others I have been too. Unisex changing areas. The Fox bar and restaurant in the lobbyish was fabulous. The staff (especially Nicole) were great, the food and drink was excellent. Child and dog friendly. The interiors were recently up dated and the whole place had a modern character filled atmosphere.

    Stayed recently for a couple of nights. Not cheap at all but some fabulous hall/rooms that would suit weddings, functions or meetings. Beautiful gardens & scenery viewed from our windows. Word of warning, drive slowly as loads of potholes but a decent sized car park once avoided. Food was on the whole very good as were the cocktails. Dog friendly with friendly, polite & helpful staff. Recommended.
