                8.2

                The service time in the bar was poor for a 5 star establishment. It took 15 minutes to get a cocktail and the staff were just talking to each other.

              • Group of friends
                9.2

                The large bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms. We also thought the breakfast was excellent and served very quickly.

                We found the lift confusing and also the numbering of the rooms.

                The hotel was pure luxury. We couldn't fault either the hotel or the staff during our one night stay and we can't wait to return.

                We came for a birthday celebration and enjoyed the food and comfort

                The spacing of accommodation. Walking out in the rain!

                All superb ... Room .. Was Beautiful and clean . Restaurants were both great .. Food was excellent . Spa was great and very relaxing .. A lovely restful break ..

                As the checkout was 11 am we wanted to use the spa till 12 and stay for lunch at the hotel at 1.oclock .. However we were told that if we had a later checkout we had to pay extra .. When I suggested we would just be getting ready in the changing area for lunch .. We were still told we had to pay extra ... This cut are stay short .. We stay I'm many 5 star hotels and have never experienced this before .. This was a shame for us and the hotel .. We missed a lovely lunch and the perfect end to a lovely overnight stay .. They missed our custom at lunch time .. The receptionist was quite abrupt .. Saying very loudly they as we had booked through your websight we were not entitled .. Bit petty .. In this day and age .. The customer should be kept happy in order to return and reccomend.. Especially as my husband was viewing the hotel in view of holding company golf meetings !!!

                Just as a five star hotel should operate. Well trained staff. Excellent food. Spotlessly clean. Very comfortable and spacious rooms. Tremendous spa area. Very relaxing.

                10.0

                We have stayed several times and have always found it first class and would stay again our only complaint is the menu in the Orangery which does not have a normal menu and we were not told on booking it should give you a idea that it only has tasting menus

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Its one of the best hotels ever stayed in, and weve been to afew ( canada, america, monaco, kenya to name afew) everyone was so helpful and they wanted you to enjoy your stay. nothing was to much trouble, Saving up now for next year.

                leaving for home was the thing we didnt like, wanted to stay longer and be pampered more,

              • Couple
                10.0

                The grounds of the hotel are absolutely lovely. The hotel its self is beautiful and elegant. Our room was huge ! The decor was stunning and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was also very large with double sinks, a tv built into the wall. This hotel has it all.

              • Older travelers
                9.0

                Polite and helpful staff. Fine food. Good experience for people, like us, who are not used to five star hotels

                Found it difficult to adjust room lights the way we wanted. This would no doubt be clearer if we stayed longer. Could not turn on shower in morning. Searched for instructions but found none. Had to do without shower. Did not want to ring reception in early morning. Porter later told me how to do it. A brief notice at shower entry would have been helpful.

              • Couple
                10.0

                Everything was just perfect, the hotel and staff.I would strongly recommend the hotel to anyone wanting a luxury break.The staff are very professional and attended to our every need.
