Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old lady Ranelagh Lovely old house & gardens however a somewhat odd feeling not being greeted. Also not having wi-fi seemed a bit remiss in this day and age

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to Yesteryear Stayed at Ranelagh for one night, but would have happily stayed longer if required. This gorgeous old mansion was full of character and very well maintained inside. The property was full on the night when we were there and there was enough room for privacy and independent activity, eg watching TV or playing pool. We met the housekeeper who was very obliging and helpful. I would definitely stay at Ranelagh again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very average property The linen was fresh and clean but the house was not very clean. It was cold when we arrived and the fires weren't prepared as I'd been told they would be. We found the bedroom door really hard to open and had to call for help. Then we found there was no security lock on it. The house keeper couldn't tell us how to use the large screen TV which we had been looking forward to which restricted us to the rare part of the house.
