Good Hotel Guide Review

The name may mean ‘house among thistles’, but the ‘meticulously kept’ combination of manicured lawns, knotted gardens and meadow flowers tells otherwise. Flourishing, too, is the praise guests reserve for this ‘beautiful’, ‘ancient’ mansion under the stewardship of the National Trust. ‘It hasn’t changed one bit in the 20 years we’ve been going there, and that’s how I hope it stays,’ says a trusted Guide correspondent this year. ‘The sofas are comfortable; the place is warm, quiet and peaceful; the staff are super-friendly, super-professional, immaculately turned out.’ Beyond the public rooms (‘lovely’ original fireplaces, fresh flowers, leather-bound books), bedrooms in the main hall and in cottages in the grounds are furnished with antiques and original paintings. ‘Our cottage suite was immaculate – a bit tired around the edges, but it’s like going to stay with a favourite relative.’ Come dinnertime, suit up for John Williams’s ‘superb’ modern menu. ‘Some may find it a little formal, but we dressed up, dined in for five nights (they kindly altered the menu), and drank gallons of fair-priced wine. Loved it!’ (Richard Morgan-Price, and others). This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

'What a wonderful hotel! Our room was lovely with beautiful views and was always warm which was rare in my experience in hotels in the winter. We were offered complimentary early morning tea brought to our room when we wanted. The fire was always lit, the staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Delicious food in an attractive spacious dining room. ' - SP - November, 2016
'We were upgraded to a lovely large room with four-poster bed and glorious view over the grounds at the back of the hall. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room, which we initially thought very unusual, but on reflection realised it was part of the traditional country house expectations: room service was very prompt, friendly and efficient - much appreciated first thing in the morning. Spa facilities are excellent, with an unusually large pool (50’) for a hotel, and a full range of spa treatments on offer for a thoroughly relaxing break. Wonderful peaceful gardens and views. ' - Stephen & Pauline Glover - September, 2014
'It has not changed one bit in the 20 years we have been going there and that is how I hope it stays. The rooms (we had a cottage suite this time) are immaculate, a tiny bit tired around the edges, but it’s like going to stay with a favourite relative. The bathrooms are a little dated, but functional and immaculate. The sofas are comfortable and the place is warm, quiet and peaceful. WIFI is intermittent depending on where in the room you stand (the building is ancient, with thick walls) but it worked. Some may find it a little formal, but we dressed up, dined in the super dining room for five nights (menu altered a bit which was kind), drank gallons of fair-priced wine. Loved it! The staff are super-riendly, super professional, immaculately turned out. Nicolette, the restaurant manageress has been there 35 years, and service is slick! Superb (not huge) pa. ' - Richard Morgan-Price - October, 2015
'A place for a quiet luxury break. We found it impressive and hospitable. Helpful, friendly staff. ' - Pauline and Stephen Glover - February, 2014
