The pool, spa and sauna are excellent, good room size and good hotel location. Cleanliness is an issue and some (not all) disinterested staff. They need more staff during the breakfast rush with the people they had being run off their feet. Phone in the room did not work and reported that four times during our three night stay being promised someone would come to inspect it, that never happened.

Okay it was

The manor is beauful however the room leaked and the place had a strong smell of smoke. When the Manager was told about the leaking room, he said that as another room was not available he would remove our meal costs. On check up this did not happen.
