I stayed at the hotel for one night on a dinner, bed and breakfast rate.
The hotel is beautiful. The best thing is definitely the staff that work here, they really do go out their way to make the experience special and individually bespoke to each guest.
It is clearly within the culture of the hotel that all staff are encouraged to act and deal with customers in such a manner. Very impressed by this.
The rooms were lovely; they had a lot of character, were well appointed and very clean. The bed was especially comfortable.
Prices for the hotel were also reasonable and the food was of good quality. Particularly enjoyed the seting of the restaurant and lounge area.
Bathroom was very clean and had a powerful shower and bath combined.
Would definitely stay here again and was very pleased with the whole experience; the service levels are difficult to beat.
Only thing that wasn't present was WIFI which may put off business customers as there is also a very poor, intermittent mobile phone signal in most of the hotel. There is wired internet access at a small charge if you wish to connect using a laptop.
