We stayed here for one night as a mini break away.
The room itself was lovely, and decorated in a vintage style which made it very cosy and romantic.
Breakfast however was a different story.
Upon arriving our order for tea and coffee was taken, which they got wrong. When we did get the right drinks, we put milk in from the jug on the table, which curdled in the drinks and turned out to be off. (The staff confirmed if was actually out of date).
I then ordered poached egg on toast, but the egg came out jellied and was raw. I returned it and was offered another, but I declined as suffering from salmonella poisoning isn't how I wanted to spend my week.
The toast was fine.
We mentioned the whole fiasco to the manager on duty but it seemed to be acceptable because I was offered another breakfast which was quite disappointing.
Overall the room itself was well worth the stay, but as we didn't seem to be alone with the wrong orders etc at breakfast, be prepared!
