Positive Reviews

Very agreeable setting and ambience

Travellers love the look, feel, and location of this hotel. The evident heritage of the grand old manor building is, guests note, extremely evocative. In addition, many visitors appreciate the warm, cosy vibe of the property's interiors, with reviewers saying they feel like they're staying in a friend's home rather than a hotel. The semi-rural location is also deemed a big plus - close enough to town to explore it with ease yet far enough away to enjoy plenty of peace and quiet.

Exemplary hospitality and service

The old-school hospitality proffered by this hotel's friendly staff members goes down very well with reviewers. Guests particularly like the way all of the employees here, regardless of which department they work in, are always happy to make time to chat.

Excellent food and drink

Reviews are full of positive comments made about the hotel's impressive dining and drinking credentials. Guests say the food served up here is, in general, of an excellent standard, as is the array of whiskey and wine options on hand. Sipping a choice malt whiskey by the log fire in the rarefied surroundings of the Drawing Room Bar & Lounge is, reviewers note, a very satisfying experience.

Negative Reviews

Bathrooms could be better

Whilst visitors are, in the main, quite happy with the standard of the accommodations, some dissatisfaction is expressed with the bathrooms. Fluctuating shower temperatures, dim lights, and a lack of heating are some of the most frequently raised issues in reviews.
