    The owners and staff were superb and coudn't have been more friendly and efficient. The restaurant and lounge/bar were lovely as was the food.

    The rooms need renovated which the owners are aware of and are addressing. Overall though, a superb building and a great stay.

    I have stayed in many places throughout the world and it was one of the nicest places I have stayed. The location was gorgeous, the food and service wonderful and the whole experience was a delight. I will return!!

    Very brief overnight stay, in between spells of dreadful weather. Outstandingly attentive staff, excellent food and very comfortable bed. Sorry the stay was so short, but will certainly come again.

    Long track to hotel would be difficult in bad winter weather

    I stayed once before briefly on business, and was so taken with the hotel that I decided to use it again. On this occassion I was able to combine a work commitment with a few days family break. The generous grounds provided many attractions for our 2 year old, including pet ducks, trampoline, climbing frame/swing/slide, not forgetting the 9 hole pitch'n'put! The staff were all very welcoming, and showed incredible patience with their smallest and most outspoken guest.

    The staff is exceptional, the rooms delightful and the general ambiance is superb. This hotel attracts a really nice crowd of guests, including salmon fishermen. It is one of the best run hotels I have stayed in.

    Traditional architecture in substantial private grounds. Cosy luxurious interior and welcoming atmosphere. A perfect island of serenity in an otherwise hectic world!

    Good and friendly standard of service from all staff, who regularly take initiative to check that service is good. Hotel took trouble to deliver special requests like European plug adaptor, feather pillows, weighing scales in bedroom. Excellent restaurant.

    Minor point: we wanted double room, only twin showed up as available. I phoned hotel 2 days befopre to say we wanted double if one became available. When we checked in we found that message had been registered and they were preparing twin for us. But all got sorted out in time and we got a double. Seems to be a communication gap between nhotel and bookings.com.

    Fabulous

    Nice location, nice people, breakfast good, general friendliness good, grounds well maintained, retained the feeling of its original granduer

    Bathroom a bit sad and dated, bedroom decoration could have been more ornately finished to match the building's history

    From arrival to departure, we were made so welcome by the staff during our stay. They were exceptionally polite, helpful and friendly. The rooms were great, bed ever so comfy and a great view. The food was the best I have had for a while and that includes 5 star hotels and restaurants. Only down side was that we couldn't stay another night as there would have been no hesitation to do so. Certainly worthy of more than 3 stars........ Thank you guys once again.

    Service was good. Some of the food was very good. Setting was nice. Loved the open fire. Bed was comfy.

    Overpriced for what it was. Room was quite small. Decoration in bathroom could do with upgrade. Needs new toilet seat. Shower was very poor. Not sure about recommending it. Have had more luxurious accomodation for the money. Did enjoy our stay though.

    Superb

    The owners and staff made us feel as if we were actually their "house guests" rather than just paying public. There was simply nothing that was a problem for them to do for you. The standard of food was top notch, from Breakfast to Evening dinner the choice was superb and all made to how you wanted it.
