Stayed for just one night last week in room 7, its not a huge bedroom but its very well appointed and has a large bathroom with freestanding bath and a lovely seperate shower.
We really liked the view over the church yard, you can hear the bells at night and they chime very frequently however the ear plugs provided really do work a treat and blocked my husbands snoring which takes some doing ! Saying that though the bells are not annoying anyway (well we didnt think so) and we did also sleep with the window open mainly as it was a little warm due to the sudden burst of nice weather ! We'd definately book this room again in future.
I liked the thoughtful little touches like the flask of milk so you can actually make a decent cup of tea in your room, the homemade oaty biscuits were divine ! Loved the decent size toiletries from the Bath House, only thing i would improve is a little bottle of hair conditioner would also be useful.
The service we received from everyone was brilliant from the minute we arrived to when we left. Parking is a bit tricky buts thats to be expected in this kind of location, Sarah was on hand when we pulled up with directions of where to park for free ... we ended up about a 10 minute walk away however you can pull up outside to drop off / pick up bags etc.
The bar has a lovely atmosphere, the food in the restaurant was excellent both for the evening meal and also breakfast ...faultless !
Having stayed i can now see why this place gets such good reviews, i think they have the combination right of attention to detail, high standards, excellent service and food ... so theres not much more anyone can ask for.
I'd love to stay again in future.
