We stayed here for 2 nights using a Living Social Voucher and we were delighted with our standard twin room which was in the courtyard at the back of the hotel. The weather was bitterly cold but our room was warm and cosy. The food has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes and deserves this merit for excellent quality and imagination.The canapes before dinner were superb, the bread the best ever and the starters fantastic especially the Waldorf! We each had the lamb on the first night which was delicious and on the second night my husband chose the pork which was equally so. I chose the beef which was cooked to perfection but in my opinion there were too many flavours going on in one dish. The deserts were good if not a little too sweet for my taste but the cheese platter was really special. Overall the chef deserves high praise. Breakfast was the most pleasant experience with a varied menu all cooked to perfection. We cannot fault the hotel in any way. The place was absolutely spotless and the staff were so attentive. Also the wine list was varied and well priced for quality wines which were served perfectly chilled in the case of white and perfectly at room temperature in the case of the red! Well done to the management!
