Recently returned from a one night stay at The Peacock and I have to say it was excellent. Got an excellent DB&B deal for Monday night. The food was superb and beautifully cooked. Our room was very good, a decent size too. The staff were friendly but without being 'too friendly'.
If I had to pick a fault (s), then I would say for a hotel of this quality and price then a full cooked breakfast SHOULD be included in the price and not as a extra expense.
I would also ask why milk can't be provided in the rooms? Surely they could provide those small cartons you always see and then anyone that wants fresh can request that. Instead you have to ask for fresh milk from reception.
Would I return again though ? You bet !
