We have spent 6 days / nights here after looking forward to this break for 2 years.
We have not been disappointed.The staff are relaxed efficient and friendly.
We have found that our requests have been attended to almost immediately.
True the hotel is old, but is like most old things looking a little tired in places but is not at all dirty nor shabby.The carpeting must run to acres of the stuff so can’t be renewed too frequently especially after 2 lean years.
The staff at all levels are helpful and prompt— no reminders needed.
Some reviews say the garden furniture is fit for the tip, no it has weathered, and functions and is cleaned and unlike some establishments the tables are cleared after use—- no glasses etc left out overnight or for hours on end.
All the furniture in our room matches, is varnished polished and clean and unlike so many period hotels doesn’t look like it comes from a house clearance.
My only gripe is the wine list. All,wines on offer are around £40 per bottle with half litre carafes available at £29 or 250 ml I.e.a large glass at £14+.
I’ve been around a bit and that’s pricey.
It needs to be remembered that at this time there is a shortage of labour in hospitality throughout the country and every other day room servicing is to be expected.
We would come again without a doubt.More
