This is an afternoon tea with a twist and all of it was lovely, from making the reservation through to paying. The food was delicious and plenty and the service was first class. Nothing was to much trouble; we had one vegetarian, requested to be by the fire and requested takeaway bags. Yvette looked after us so well. Thank you...

The bathroom especially was well set out, and the room is in a very quiet location...I slept like a baby!Warning: the room was very dark, I loved that as it aided sleep, but I'm sure a...

Bathroom was very attractive with a very deep bath, there was also a shower. The room was very quiet couldn't hear any other guests, very comfortable bed and luxurious...

We stayed on a meal and overnight deal. The room was fine I think, but the mood lighting which the room had meant it was so dark I could not see find the plug sockets. The dinner was lovely and the couple next to us were on a very awkward first date which made the meal hilarious.

Very convenient also for shops, bars, etc. Check girl was cheerful and friendly. Room 219 we had was lovely and very quiet despite being on station side. Didn't use restaurant but did use bar.
