We were stopping in the house on the night before a friends wedding, which was held in a nearby manor house. Maureen and Paddy were friendly and welcomed us to our room, which was lovely and spacious. The breakfast was lovely the next morning. As we checked out, Maureen asked if we minded if she could check the room in case we had forgotton anything. We loaded the car up and then she came down to ask us about the towels, in which we replied 'what towel's'. She stood looking at us and kept saying 'mmmmm' and I said that we never had any towels in our room and I'd used my own. She said 'mmmmmm' and made us feel quite uncomfortable. My husband said, we've not pinched them if that's what you think and you can check the car! To which, instead of ensuring us that's not what she meant and apologise for not putting towels in our room, which she obviously thought she did, she still said nothing but 'mmmmm' and stared at us and shook her head. I've never felt so insulted and in the wrong for something we didn't do. I don't think I will be recommending this place or staying there again.
