We stayed in the Abbey room which was at the back of the house overlooking The Wreck and the bowling green. The room was big enough, The bed linen was of good quality but the bed itself was of average quality, in fact I have the same base at home. Being at the rear of the house it was very quiet apart from the rattle of the windows when it got windy.
The bathroom decor was a bit basic and the jacuzzi bath didn't work.
We could not fault the service though, It was our anniversary and Audrey at reception was very happy to supply us with an ice bucket and 2 glasses for our champagne.
Breakfast was lovely but the smell wafting up the staircase was not very appetising.When we got home our clothes that we wore to breakfast stunk of frying fat!!!
I would rate this hotel as average and not 5* as advertised. Free parking was a bonus but it was expensive at £150 a night.
