We booked here for three nights and on arrival were totally won over by how lovely the building is - ivy clad entrance and lovely gardens. The entrance hall and the lounge off it were beautiful. We found our room no problem - old fashioned and full of character - dark wood, thick red curtains and little lampshades over the wall lights :) It is a 'country house', after all.
We had our evening meal in the bistro - we have simple tastes and so the soup and scampi/haddock and chips suited us fine. The barman/waiter was lovely.
The breakfasts on our three mornings were the typical ingredients - juice, cereal, toast, cooked breakfast and coffee. It was very nice to be served the cooked breakfast rather than queue for the self-serve buffet as with so many hotels.
Just a couple of niggles but the first one is kind f excusable - the very creaky floorboards in the corridor outside the bedroom. It IS an old house and to be fair, if people didn't stamp down the corridor at midnight and later it wouldn't be so bad! LOL
The bed was a little too hard for my wife but that's all a matter of taste. It was OK for me.
What spoiled our first night (Tuesday), however, was the man in the next room who went to bed early at 9.30 and rose at 6.30. He was evidently a businessman and had an early start. The problem was that he woke me up at 6.30 just going around his room and that was after snoring extremely loudly for a whole hour the previous night from 9.30. The wall was so thin I could hear every single breath he took! Thankfully he only stayed that 1 night and the next person didn't have his problem - and neither did we!! I don't know what the hotel could do, but it was not good having to listen to loud snoring.
The wifi was terrible - it worked on our phones but not a laptop. The management did know about it and tried to help.
The staff were all very, very helpful and friendly and the extra noises aside, we had a lovely relaxed time and I'm sure we would return here again.
