    Very good

    lovely setting, lovely reception rooms. The bedroom wasn't huge but as we had a special offer of £40/night couldn't really complain.

    the pool was tiny. Take your own hairdryer- the one provided wasn't very effective

    Location excellent and grounds lovely. Very nice staff. Budget friendly and good value for overnight stay in a large room.

    The rooms are looking quite tired now and the lighting in the room was terrible.

    Booked hotel as weekend treat as it was on offer. Grand surroundings, good and varied breakfast, helpful staff.

    Small bedroom.(we did know this when we booked) However it definately was small. Swimming pool and leisure facilities lacking and could do with refurbishment.

    We booked the hotel to allow us to attend a friends wedding reception. The service and surroundings were first class and we had an excellent stay.

    All good. A bit pricey with the drinks though.

    Beautiful setting, wonderful old house, very pleasant staff. Excellent breakfast. We had bar food on Saturday evening as the restaurant was fully booked. The staff were helpful and efficient and the food good.

    Our room was musty, and all around the hotel it's looking a little tired. It has the potential to edge towards a luxury hotel but it isn't at the moment.

    Very good

    We wanted a hotel near Stansted Airport as we were flying out to Italy the following day. We wanted a hotel to feel like our 1st night of a holiday. We booked afternoon tea which was lovely and also ate in the restaurant for evening meal which was superb. Great value for money which included Breakfast. Lovely grounds to have a stroll. Easy to find with Sat Nav and only 25 mins to drive to Stansted.

    Our only criticism was that our room had a very high window. It felt a little dark and you couldn't see out of the window, which was a shame as the grounds were lovely. I am a little claustrophobic so this wasn't ideal.

    Hotel grounds and it's surroundings

    I feel like all hotels Bar prices are to high. Food was in my opinion was no better than a standard restaurant.

    House and gardens are stately

    Room was so small that it was impossible to open the drawres of the desk - impossible to unpack my suitcase and put shirts, socks, underpants away - carpet on the stair had come loose and was dangerous - carpet in general stained and worn - no wifi nor broadband in the rooms, hardly any signal for mobile phone - uninterested staff. Example: went to the bar one night at 20:30, it was impossible to have a beer because they were cleaning the lines, went then to the restaurant where I had to wait for 5 minutes before someone showed up - when I asked to order the waitress ran off first, in the back other staff were moving tables and chairs and kept the outer doors open, causing a terrible draft. They also have the habit to start setting the tables for breakfast while guests ar still having dinner - the equivalent of a bar putting the chairs on the table to start cleaning: the message is clearly to get out. Not very inviting to order a dessert or a coffee.

    The hotel was stunning inside and out. The staff were friendly and very helpful, as I had to have the bedding changed as I am alergic to feathers , there was no fuss just done in a jiffy. Our room was on the ground floor and was big roomy and very tastfully decorated I just wish we could have stayed longer. Very good value for money, it turned out cheaper than staying at the Premier Inn.

    Impressive building in extensive grounds with very good facilities. Lots of space. Relaxing environment.

    Room was slightly 'tired' but clean. Food was a little disappointing, didn't do the surroundings justice.
