“Fine building but lacking in warmth”
Reviewed June 5, 2005

We stayed only one night but booked well in advance. We advised that we wanted to make an early start on the day of departure and asked for a vegetarian breakfast-to-go. We were told this was not a problem and they said they took a pride in providing excellent breakfasts. At the time of booking they sent us photos of a gourmet breakfast feast. We were told that the breakfast would be ready to collect prior to departure.

When we checked in we found it a bit bureaucratic filling in the forms. The building was quite beautiful. Wonderful wooden panelling and stairwell.

The room was adequate but small. It was a comfortable bed but the aircon was noisy.

The breakfast-to-go should have been renamed breakfast-has-gone. As we left we collected our packs which had been left in the hallway. It felt quite impersonal that no-one was there to say goodbye and make sure everything was okay.

Unfortunately I had to complain about the lack of breakfast. One pack contained an egg, an apple, an orange and a bottle of still mineral water. The other had an apple, an orange juice and an egg. I managed to find a member of staff and said this wasn't acceptable or sufficient. I asked for something more substantial and eventually they provided another pack with one small slice of bread and two bite-size muffins. It was handed begrudgingly. Perhaps normal breakfasts in the dining room are better.

Conclusion. Nice house but very poor service. Lack of personality. More like a museum than a home. Not recommended.

The bedrooms in this beautiful house are exceptionally well appointed and so very comfortable. To find this degree of quiet elegance so near to downtown is more than useful. Stacey, our 'Innkeeper' was a treasure, nothing was too much trouble and the welcome was lovely.
Tea and cookies waiting for us!! Thankyou for a lovely stay!
