Elegantly furnished, from every room long sash windows overlook the terraced Italian gardens and water features, two sparkling pools or the putting green.

Many hours of pleasure can be attained in the lounge,library, the intimate private bar, Colonial sitting room, romantic dining conservatory or the large elegant billiard room. The winter months are warm and cosy with five of these facilities having a log fire.

We had a lovely time. We chose the pool room over the attic room and were pleased with it, and would choose this again as it felt even more private than walking through the hotel, and being able to step straight from the room into the swimming pool was nice. Might like to try the garden suite, if the price was right.
