Had a bad experience as booked and then couldnt find the booking anywhere so when my plans changed I didnt cancel in time and and was charged the full rate even though I didn’t make it. The service/receptionist phoned in the morning to say that As I hadn’t shown up so was o to be charged and I wondered why I wasnt contacted earlier either to confirm or ask if I was going to be there. Hence I wont be staying again.

Thank you for your feed back, We work hard to keep our property looking its best to match our outstanding gardens but indeed a busy summer season of guest luggage can certainly take its toll on our walls and doors. Due to occupancy levels during the summer we work feverishly over the off season on the areas that have sustained the most wear and tear to ensure we present ourselves in the standard expected as quickly as we can possible get the work done. Thank you for your review and we wish you well on your travels.

There was little noise insulation in the room. I could hear the couple in the next room speaking, even though they seemed to be speaking at normal conversational level. This kept me awake.

Staff, facilities & restaurant all excellent. Only one small gripe...no lift. Not a problem for us, but would be a problem for the elderly.
