room booked as we were attending a wedding , average size double room had very bad damp musty smell which affected my sleep and when I informed the deputy manager the next morning he was not overly concerned but offered to reduce my already very overpriced room only rate of £159 by £30.

Wonderful comfy bed. Bath in the room not my taste but fine for some! Meal was good but rather expensive (ordinary wine also expensive) The bar in the library was unusual. Lovely environment but no choices to look at, all wine and beer etc hidden away. All staff were excellent.

Stayed for 2 nights for my sisters wedding in room 21 as a family of 4. Room was a good size with what can be described as a huge bed and 2 singles. The beds were amazingly comfortable and roomy. All amenities provided with plenty of sockets and the headed towel rail was a welcomed addition. Only a few minor... More

Normally I would opt for a cheaper hotel but this week I decided I would treat myself. And what a treat it was. It's not exactly the... More
