Just had to do a review for this great, friendly little place that my husband and I found last year and we decided to visit again. We came home today!
The welcome was just as warm as the first time and the staff were unobtrusive but attentive. The manager/owner was clearly interested in us as guests and asked us each day if we had enjoyed our trips out. He also gave us some great ideas about places to eat etc.
We had the ground floor king-sized room which was spacious and well equipped. I enjoyed the duvet as I get a little tired of sheets and throws or blankets that you get in lots of hotels these days (they are always tucked in all the way round and I wrestle them before I go to bed which makes everything so untidy - duvets are great). Parking too was a breeze, with a large spacious car park that meant that everyone parked easily (the hotel was full). I liked the tree at the front and that it was lit up at night as this made it all feel very romantic.
Having read other people's reviews before visiting this time, I was actually more conscious of external noise than I had been on the first visit, although I didn't find the occasional traffic noise even remotely irritating, and I found the sound of the trains strangely reassuring when they passed from time to time - so really this didn't impact on the stay.
Breakfast was organised to our schedule (not the hotel's) and the time we wanted was agreed the night before. The breakfast was ample and really set us up for the day. It was charged in addition to the room rate, but that was clear on booking. It was nice to feel that we didn't need to have breakfast and we wouldn't be wasting money.
All in all - another good, relaxing stay and I have this feeling that this is going to become an annual event. Thank you to all the staff.
