Just returned from weekend break staying in room 1.Whilst there is on-going work relating to the renovation of the hotel this really had no impact on us or effected out stay in any way.
The hotels number one strength is without doubt its staff. Each one, in particular Len (thanks Len for the late night milk) excelled in making us feel special with nothing too much trouble. The staff massively contribute to making the hotel feel like a special oasis achieving the perfect balance of service and homeliness.
The food was on the whole extremely good although as a tip to the hotels accountant the portion sizes at dinner could have been smaller with no room for complaints. Would suggest though some thought as to the need for an indulgent menu alongside the standard one. Both my wife and I preferred the meal from the standard menu and personally would like to see a focus on one sound and varied menu as opposed to two.
Room: Exactly as described with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. In addition the ambience of the hotel at night in particular added to the romantic country house retreat feel.
Very few, although with a view to providing assistance to the hotel as opposed to criticism would state the following
Dining Room-In variance to previous reviews we felt the dining room to be a little on the stark side with lighting that was far too bright. Softer lighting and with the candles would have helped.
In room hotel guide- Suggest removal of the reference to a pre dinner cocktails on the grounds that no cocktails are served.
Bed- Whilst large and sumptuous looking the mattress was very firm with poor quality pillows on our first night (prior to a request for feather pillows)
All in all a wonderful break in a hotel that appears to have a very bright future with fantastic staff.
