My partner & I booked this through Groupon and stayed there 2 days ago for my partner's birthday. It was a little tricky to find but once there it was just as we expected. Lets face it - you're in a train carriage so anyone who expects a top star hotel experience could be disappointed, but if you go expecting to stay somewhere a little different - you'll love it!! Yes, the room is small - it's a train carriage! Yes, it's a little dated - it's a train carriage! Some reviews we read complained of the room being too hot, ours was just right. Like another review, our room was overlooking the car park, but it was clean and tidy and the bed was HUGE!! We had a little nose around before dinner and found the four poster room - oh how I would love to stay in that room!! (maybe next time) It was a completely charming hotel. The lady on reception/ bar/waitressing was very very nice & very helpful - sorry I don't know her name but her regular job is with horses so she'll know who she is. Before dinner, my partner had a pint and & I had a glass of rose wine. Sometimes I find wine a little tart and usually have lemonade with it but this was very drinkable- hence the 2 glasses before dinner :) We sat in the conservatory and watched the trains go by. There was a lovely log fine in the foyer/bar area, but two other couples were sitting by it so we opted to sit by a window. We ate in another carriage which gave the whole experience authenticity and the meal was fantastic - I just can't praise the food enough. Yum yum yum yum yum :) After a very good night's sleep we had breakfast which was self service and basically cereals, yoghurts fruit, juice and toast. Tea and coffee was supplied and re-filled by the owner (sorry, I didn't get his name either). He was also very friendly and welcoming. We asked about staying on New Year's Eve but unfortunately it is fully booked. Nevertheless, we WILL be returning!
