We had a weekend break here last week and it was lovely. When we arrived we were allocated a nice room but as it didn't have a bath we asked for another and were accommodated immediately. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff were courteous and friendly. Later when we went for dinner the dining room was noisy and full with people from a bus tour, so we decided to eat in the bar but the head waiter in the restaurant came looking for us and promised us a secluded table - which we got. He escorted us to our table carrying our wine. He as very attentive throughout the meal and even asked us if we would like some more to eat! The meal was lovely and plentiful so we declined but my husband and I were in shock as we had never been offered more food in any other restaurant we have eaten in. After the meal, once again, the head waiter carried our drinks to the bar and found us a seat. He was really very attentive. The breakfast was lovely and once again we were served promptly. It poured that day and we got soaked when out on a walk so decided to go back to the hotel. We had to go to the lobby to get the internet as it was impossible in our room. This would be our only complaint as it did say in the room description that internet was available in the rooms. This didn't bother us as the lobby was lovely. The chef even made us fresh chips while we browsed. We ordered chips but noticed at our meal the night before that the chips were frozen so asked could we have fresh - this was no trouble. On checking out the male receptionist offered us tea or coffee before we left and then offered an umbrella to get us to our car as it was still raining. This hotel was lovely to stay in. Nothing was any bother to the staff and they were always friendly and courteous. We would definitely stay here again.
