We had originally booked a "Superior" room in the main house, but got ..... no four poster beds were available APPARENTLY, and so we were DOWNGRADED to a standard room in the courtyard! The staff were extremely disorganised and did not offer anything to make things better... Needless to say, we had a terrible stay.
