A Groupon deal, we had paid extra for a superior room. Reception was very welcoming and we were shown to the garden suite around 20 yards from the main building in outbuildings at least 200 years old.
A small entrance hall lead on to the large bathroom recently refurbished with over bath shower - not very powerful but very hot. The bedroom had a welcoming courtesy tray including bottled water, flat screen TV, a king size bed with lovely crisp linen. A small sitting room with a further TV completed the suite
The décor was showing some signs of wear and tear but with its country scenes and olde worlde furnishings we were totally captivated.
An evening meal was part of the deal which we took in the small dining room which appeared somewhat functional after the wow factor of our room. A brasserie type menu with side orders as extras but with ample portions. We both took the deep fried brie and chicken which were excellent and no room for deserts.. Breakfasting at 8.30am we were offered a hot breakfast which we accepted. This was freshly made and arrived hot with coffee and toast The cold buffet appeared to comprise a choice of apple juice, pineapple juice, some cereal, yoghurt and fruit salad which we took to be the starter to the main meal had we wished to indulge and were surprised on paying the bill to find we had been charged extra as the hot breakfast was not included.
Despite this we consider our stay to have given good value and a very pleasant experience
Top marks to all the staff
Would we stay again. Yes we hope to but not at rack rates..
