HI 494RachaelD Thank you so much for the lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and had such a lovely time. We do apologise that you were disturbed by the guests next door. Sadly with an older building sound insulation is not as easy as we would like but we hope it did not detract from the enjoyment of your stay too much. I've also passed on your comments to our brigade of Chef's who will be delighted that you enjoyed your afternoon tea. We recently upgraded it to include more lovely delights so it is great to hear that that was well received! We look gorward to welcoming you again and thanks again for the lovely review.
