We've been here twice now - once when taking G/F's daughter to an open day at nearby Sutton Bonington school of agriculture, and once as a valentine day trip for G/F while I was collecting some Volvo parts in nearby Derbyshire. Love it.
Fabulous historic house. The village of Kegworth is named after it, not the other way round.
Parking is plentiful and secure and there are facilities for late arrival or departure. Road links good.
Young assistant hoteliers offered to help carry baggage - although I suspect that having two lovely exotic young beauties with us (G/F's daughter and her BFF) with us as well as the exotic beauty who is my G/F helped.
First trip we were given the garden room - just smashing with private back door into the lovely walled garden. A king or queen sized double bed would have been a bonus, but the standard double is OK - and a larger bed would have made the room feel cramped. Good wardrobe space, more than we needed, and perfectly adequate TV and DVD player and small HiFi.
FABULOUS shower with extra jets in all sorts of interesting places. Took a while for the water to get hot and not a lot of space for two medium-large people (hope G/F's daughter or her BFF do not read this) but de luxe and nice cosmetics supplied: none specifically for African skins but I infer that those are a bit rare up there. .
G/F's daughter and BFF loved their room too and came squealing with delight to us every time they found a fresh joy. Until we locked them out.
No evening restaurant in the hotel and G/F does not eat Indian (and I like an evening drink and will not drive after even one) so choice of nearby restaurant limited but the mostly-Italian a very short walk down the road is perfectly adequate and the food nice and adequately copious despite some sniffy reviews, and the staff were very helpful about G/F's love of chilli. No room for pudding! There are other restaurants and gastropubs a bit further away including a ghastly modern hotel with a restaurant franchised from a name chef and total delusions of grandeur to judge by the prices so I'd say stay local or go to a gastropub. There is a book of reviews by guests available in the hotel.
Breakfast for all residents around huge farmhouse style table, cooked to order, full English with all adjuncts, local bacon and sausages, proper fresh coffee, freshly squeezed juice.
And SO reasonably priced. I've paid more for a very unsatisfactory campsite down south.
Vaut la voyage.
