This hotel is desperately in need of complete refurbishment. Whilst this is a country house type of hotel, it is shabby & very dated. As I was travelling alone, I had to have a single room which was in the roof & very small. This seems to be common hotel policy these days, but I see no reason why any single traveller should have to endure second rate accommodation when they are away from home. I would have preferred a larger bed as I am 6' tall, & I narrowly avoided knocking myself out on the dormer window for lack of space for the same reason! The 'en suite' area was extremely cramped & the shower the smallest I have ever used. The elderly tv didn't want me to watch BB2 and would not switch off via the handset. I found the food to be bland & un-seasoned, even the scrambled egg for breakfast. The only redeeming feature of this hotel is the lovely pool & spacious spa bath. However, along with the rest of the place, the silk shrubbery looks very autumnal & long overdue for replacement. Oh, & be warned ... if you are going to swim, take a towel with you, as they charge £1 for the use of one!
