My husband and I took my mother to Hunter's for a two night stay, (9 and 10 March 2013). The staff were all very friendly and helpful, our two bedrooms were large, clean and very attractive. On entry we found a roaring fire lit in each bedroom (wonderful on a cold and wet afternoon!). The central heating in the upstairs rooms does need some attention as it doesn't let much heat through (specially noticeable in the mornings). The dinners and breakfasts were absolutely delicious and each night a hot water bottle was placed in the bed whilst we were enjoying dinner, a very thoughtful touch.
Overall, the three of us felt that Hunter's was a charming hotel with a beautiful garden. We were very well looked after and would definitely re-book in the future.
