Pleasant and enjoyable stay overall.

Received value for money.The room we stayed in required a number of steps to be climbed.The room was clean but lacking in amenities.Would have liked a small table in the room or outside and posssibly a microwave.The staff were very friendly and accommodating.The breakfasts were delicious and just filling.But the evening dinner choice was expensive and limited in choice.The sorbets and cocktail hour were a nice and welcome touch.The place is full of history and the library and games room was lovely,homely and full of charm.


Only 5 Star option on each item. Would give all 10 star!

And all to the Staff, from cleaners, desk, dining, bar. They made us feel like part of a family and not just a "customer". Their attention to detail was impeccable.
The Resort itself was perfect, from the Pools, the free bicycles. fishing rods, library, chess, draughts to the details posted on the history of the Resort.
Bob Dylan stayed. I forgot to ask which Room, will certainly do next time!
For what we paid to what we got, we owe the Resort in value!

Are we going back?

That is a YES.

Again thanks to ALL the Staff


Was an amazing stay
