The atmosphere in this hotel/restaurant is very informal and relaxed, with what may appear to some as a slightly dated decor in the public areas. Service, however, is efficient and friendly; and this seems to encourage guests to socialise more amongst themselves.
Our room (or suite) was large, clean and well-furnished, with a spacious well-appointed bathroom (both bath and separate shower cubicle).
The highlight of the stay was the dinner each evening - an interesting menu (more game perhaps than often encountered) with dishes being very well thought out, cooked and presented. The wine list included a good selection of decent wines in the £20 to £25 range, without the huge mark up so often imposed; a selection of local bottled beers was welcome.
One negative point (and the reason for not awarding top marks - 4.5 would probably be a more accurate reflection overall) is the somewhat regimented way of serving dinner - tables at quarter hour intervals from 6.30 to 8.30. Arriving at 5.45 to be told that the only remaining slots were 6.30 and 8.30 meant a choice between very rushed preparations and a long wait. My advice would be to reserve a time for dinner when booking the hotel.
Overall, however, this was a very pleasant stay offering good food and relaxation.
