We have just returned from this hotel after spending two night there. This is one of the friendliest hotels we have every stayed at. The location is stunning as is the building, it was so peaceful,the only noise was a distant train. We had upgraded to the larger deluxe room which was worth the additional £20 for the two night, (room 21) and overlooked the garden, our only disappointment was the bathroom, it had a large corner bath with shower mixer head but no shower as such so if you wanted a shower you had to stand up in the bath holding the shower head.
The hotel had a nice room with a real fire which we had drinks in each night. We did not eat here in the evening, but did have breakfast each of the two days. Breakfast was in the conservatory, which is stunning, we opted for the full English and was freshly cooked to order, and was hit and well presented. There was a table in the middle of the room where you could help yourself to cereals, fruit, fresh suit juice and croissants, toast was just round the corner which you cooked yourself, so was always hot. The service was amazing and quick and very friendly, I wish some of the other hotels we have stayed at had been half as good as this one, nothing was too much trouble for any of their staff,especially the reception staff.
I would highly recommend this hotel, it was clean and tidy with lots if character in a beautiful location.
