The hotel has 10 ensuite rooms, with many of the rooms containing their Victorian or Edwardian appearances with four-poster posters etc. Past owners include Anthony and Magda Pitkin, and latterly Richard Morgan-Price and Huw Thomas from 2002. The 3.5 acre garden contain croquet. Prince Charles of Wales and the Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall stayed at the hotel in June 2007 and the 14th Dalai Lama has also stayed at the hotel.
