Excellent privacy with great little touches that you dont get at a hotel, the up to date magazines, great breakfasts that are fresh and different and always stocked up in the fridge. even the sewing kit was a great touch!5/5 by ,
We loved our wedding anniversary at the Gatehouse. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind, loved the thoughtfull touches which meant we didn't have to go out, just spend the night together not worrying about the time. The champers and breakfast were great! Would reccomend it to anyone who needs some timeout, turn off your mobile and relax!5/5 by , VIC
