We stayed at The Elmfield having read fantastic things about it both on tripadvisor and through their wonderful website. I rang them to book us into the deluxe room as i'm 8 months pregnant so i needed a big bed! When we got there, we were greeted by Zoe who was very friendly and helpful and shown to our room, which i have to say was very disappointing. For future reference, it's room number 6. The room itself was fine but the bathroom was like a bad b&b - very very basic - a drizzle of a shower and the bath was really too small to get into (i'm 5'9). Admittedly it was very clean, but not something i'd expect for a deluxe room.
The rest of the hotel is nice. It's odd as some of the decor is just gorgeous (see website) but if you look down there is a really old-fashioned carpet - my husband and I thought that they might be doing things in stages.
The breakfast was just gorgeous - absolutely fantastic. The swimming pool was fab - a real treat.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel to explore the area - but it's not quite the boutique hotel that the websites leads you to believe.
