We stayed 2 nights in the Pemberley room which was very comfortable with a lovely bathroom. All the staff were friendly and we were made to feel welcome, The quality of food in the restaurant was excellent and as a result we decided to eat there both nights. The staff were all very attentive and there was a good selection of wines. The venue has a lovely garden at the back with a selection of plants and vegetables that it grows for the restaurant. Ample free parking. If we were in the area again would definitely choose to stay again.
