We visited the hotel on a friday night in March as we were visiting family in the area. There is a huge irony here that the hotel is a three star yet we were blown away with our room but the restaurant has two AA rosettes but was a truly miserable experience. For this reason I am going to do this review based soley on the hotel and I will do a seperate review for the restaurant. We paid a little extra for a room in the main building which was massive with a four poster bed. The en-suite was also huge and came with a huge spa bath which comfortably fitted in both me and the wife. Even paying the extra the total room bill for the night was only £120 although this did not include breakfast. The bed was so comfortable and we had a truly great night's sleep and the four poster combined with traditional furniture, huge sash windows with views overlooking the gardens created a room with a great atmosphere and sense of character. I guess the only downside might be that because the building is very old there are a lot of noises throughout that can be heard in the room although the wife is quite a light sleeper and because the bed was so comfortable she did not wake once. The staff in the hotel (excluding the restaurant) were friendly from the moment we walked in and everyone from the receptionist to the bar staff were helpful and polite. The bar food was superb, if a little pricey and the atmosphere of the bar area was good although there was a funeral party here at the time and this kind of puts a little bit of a downer on the mood if you are here to try and have an enjoyable time. The spa and pool looked fairly nice but we decided that a short walk in the rain to get there was not for us on this occasion. I am amazed that this hotel is just 3 stars as I have stayed in many good quality 4 star hotels which I would compare this best western to. I would definitely stay here again although if you read my review of the restaurant you will see why I will not be eating there for a second time.
