    Due to a late flight I arrived much later than anticipated and am gutted that I didn't get to spend as long as I wanted in this hotel. Staff were friendly, uber professional and helpful. My room was a very nice double in the West Wing, all mod cons yet it seemed to fit the historical decor. I was gutted upon checkout that I didn't have the foresight to book additional nights here - what a bargain! It is in a beautiful location, fantastic views and stunning kerb appeal. Will def go back if in the vicinity (or within 100 miles!)

    My bedroom was at the end of a long corridor and down a set of 3 steps, which I didn't see as I was carrying bags etc, and wasn't warned about, so I had an accident when I fell down them - was hurt pride more than anything but potentially dangerous. Also, once in my room I had to go back up 3 steps to my miniscule bathroom. Weird layout. The tea/coffee etc were in the desk cupboard and I had to take the kettle, tray, cups etc out myself, find space and find a plug. A lot of work for a cuppa! Also, bar/ restaurant were fully closed when I got there at 11pm, and room service prices were severe so I ended up going to bed on a very empty stomach. Could also hear noises from next door - thin walls.

    Our visit was a birthday pressie for my husband. We stayed in the king james suite - where this king stayed on his way to london for his coronation. We loved the history of it all. Room was huge and had fabulous views. Staff were really nice. We had a bar meal on the night which was lovely & fresh! And my husband loved the full breakfast the next morning.

    Just be careful if you're wanting to book the king james suite. A picture of it is.included with the offers on the suites for £160/£170 which I thought was great! I asked the hotel if we could have this room but they rang and told me this room was not included in the offer and it cost £245. I DID EMAIL TO SAY I THOUGHT THIS WAS MISLEADING & A BIT UNFAIR

    All rooms are close to the function room tgat was used for the wedding, food was excellant.

    Drinks were over priced and check in time a little late as you dint even get 24 hours in the hotel.

    Very pleasant hotel.

    Some of the staff seemed a bit sultry, did not necessarily seem to be enjoying their work. Regardless of this they were all efficient and helpfully. Both the receptionist and the waitress at breakfast were very good.

    The hotel is aw magnificent building in a beautiful setting. The rooms are large and cweomfortable. A wonderful setting for a wedding which is why we were there.

    We were amused by the two Yorkshire puddings on the floor underneath the carvery - don't know how long they had been there considering the carvery is on a Sunday and this was Friday night!

    The friendliness of most of the staff, the warm reception, the comfortable beds, the cleanliness,the grounds, the breakfasts, especially the help yourself at week-ends. The beautiful countryside around. The picturesque castle.

    A noisy room looking out directly below on to a rubbish dump! Too hot at night with the duvet on, not warm enough without it! Pillows not very comfortable. Room was dark without the lights on. bedside lamps no use for reading by

    Very relaxing from arrival to leaving, enjoyed the grounds when we arrived, The reception staff were very nice and friendly, it was a nice informal weekend. I would like to stay again, although we don't live far away, the food would be worth staying for. Thank you.

    The only thing I didn't like was the yard opposite the well , which we could see from our window, possibly needs a perspex canopy over so that the rubbish isn't seen. It didn't spoil our stay though.
