Without doubt the highlight of my stay at the Huntingtower was the food. Dinner can only be described as excellent, and excellent value too with three courses and coffee for £20. My only regret was that being a solo trip I wasn't sharing the experience with that someone special. I've willingly paid more than double for food of an equal quality at home in Shropshire so this can definitely be recommended for a special meal. Breakfast too was excellent and the restaraunt staff were all helpful and pleasant. One minor point was that having been asked to book a time to eat it was over half an hour after that when I was able to have my meal.
Oh dear ! I have quite some experience of travelling on my own and the horrors of single rooms so on this occasion with long distances to travel either side of this stay I booked a double room for the extra comfort. The room I was given (212) was quite dark and cramped - there was just too much dark furniture for the size of room. And it suffered from being located next to some noisy ventilation equipment. Fortunately that appeared to be switched off overnight and the bed was comfortable so not too bad. I did notice that the bed sheet however was damaged and that isn't acceptable from a hotel of this standard.
The bathroom too was quite cramped. A couple couldn't use it together. One criticism common to many hotels was there was just nowhere to put a wash bag. I don't like having to use the toilet seat as the only available flat surface .
Despite the obvious conclusion that anyone travelling on their own is given the least attractive rooms this is a hotel I would definitely consider revisiting. The staff I met were very friendly. Food is excellent value for money, the accommodation I experienced a little less so but overall I had a favourable impression.
