Firstly I have to say I have not stayed here but have eaten twice in the hotels restaurant, Rugantino. However I will probably spend a short weekend away here sometime in the future.
The first meal here was on a Saturday in March at mid day and was off the special lunch menu (£11.00 for 2 courses from memory) which despite this was of excellent quality. The resturant is quite small and has a good vibe, the tables have linen table cloths, the wait staff are polite and professional, the house wines are reasonably priced and good, the menu is imaginative.
On the stregth of our first experience my wife and I returned the other weekend and this time we ordered a la carte (the firm was paying) and the bill was still very reasonable under £80 for 3 courses and drinks. We both enjoyed our meals greatly
I have looked at some of the negative reviews and all I can say there are some who can only look for the negative, BOTH of our experiences were VERY POSITIVE, I am sure you would not be unhappy here.
