The road leading up to the hotel was a bit tricky and extremely narrow, but it was expected. Sheep surround the estate. I was traveling with my fiance who is from northern England and I am from the southern United States. The exterior of the house is oozing with history and it was absolutely gorgeous even in early winter. The reception/check-in area was a bit odd considering the exterior, but it didn't really matter. There is a nice glass ceiling in the reception area filled with chairs and brochures to look at for areas surrounding the hotel. The receptionist led us to our room through the winding hallways and stairway. You can tell the age of the hotel because of the uneven walkways and floors. We stayed in Cromwell which was very nice. It had a large, cozy bed and overlooked the entrance and field of grazing sheep. Our room conveniently had two radiators. They had gin in the room which we were unsure of whether it was complimentary or not. The bathroom was a bit odd to us. It did not offer much lighting and had the toilet raised on a step with a light over it like it was a throne of some sorts. The bath water was an absolute waste! The temperature was very cold and resulted in a total bath time of five minutes. I had put some water in a cup to take my medication with, but I stopped there. I do not trust water that is not clear and fizzles with carbonation. We went down for dinner around 7:30pm and were first served canapes in the bar area. The chairs were quite comfy and the room was cozy. There were a lot of dark woods and colors accented by the crackling wood fireplace. The hearth of the fireplace was extremely old looking which is something I really enjoy. They really liked the idea of serving fish which I detest. Our first course was okay, the garlic bread was divine, and everything else was all right. They made it a bit too "fancy" for my taste. I prefer the basics which are usually the best. We were served our tea by the fireplace which was quite lovely. Dinner and breakfast are served in another part of the hotel aka the dining room. The hotel was quiet all through the night. We were served a nice continental breakfast/Welsh breakfast. The waiter and staff were very accommodating and friendly.
