We were very pleased to return to this charming hotel in order to attend a wedding nearby.
We were upgraded to a very pretty room as we did not like the ground floor room
on edge of a car-park we were originally allocated. The trouble with booking online is
that the hotel does not know if you are returning or new guests. Anyway we were very
impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff throughout the hotel. We
lunched and dined at the hotel during the weekend and thought the food was really delicious.
Breakfast was also very good with lots of nicely prepared fruit, juices, breads etc. very attractively laid out. We like the fact no-one knocked on our door for turn-down or to do the room in the morning, but when we returned to our room a magic fairy had waived her wand. I agree the bathrooms are rather small and I really dislike these little bins with lids you tend to find in hotel bathrooms. I prefer an open bin that cannot fall over! Still overall these are quibbles. We always leave this lovely hotel feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after being cosseted and cared for.
