Good Hotel Guide Review
In extensive grounds, the former home of Lord Louis Mountbatten is today a ‘well-run’ hotel with contemporary bedrooms, cossetting suites, a choice of eating and drinking spaces, and a sleek spa. Bedrooms in the extended 300-year-old manor house are ‘practical and well furnished, with all the amenities’; upmarket mews suites are in landscaped gardens in a gated compound. The ‘bustling’ brasserie has classic bistro dishes (‘seemingly something for everyone’); more formal, modern British dinners are taken in the restaurant (Wed–Sat). Besides the state-of-the-art spa, several walled gardens provide space for relaxation and reflection. ‘Plentiful’ breakfasts are ‘nicely served, with freshly squeezed orange juice’.
