Have now stayed twice at this hotel in last 6 months with friends, both occasions we had a deal for dinner, bed and breakfast and cream tea!
As other reviews have suggested the rooms are a little tired (particularly the bathrooms) but they are spacious and comfortable. And frankly on a girls weekend much more important to us are relaxing, comfortable surroundings and friendly staff!
Having now eaten in the restaurant twice I can honestly say we all cleared the plates of all 3 courses - food is yummy!!! And fab given included in our deal, restaurant comfy with nice atmosphere. The 'lounge' where afternoon tea was served has little daylight and is a tad gloomy but not our main focus faced with scones and cream!
Sometimes when you visit a hotel where a wedding is taking place that you aren't part of you can feel in the way or second best, that is not the case here and they keep the wedding guests separate beautifully so everyone feels welcome!
It is of course tragic what occurred the weekend after our stay but it will not stop us visiting again and wish the staff all the success they deserve, I have no doubt they will have done all they could.
