I stayed here a year ago and the place was quite nice. I was eager for a return. No doubt it still is nice and the recent reviews attest to this. But I feel I have to remark on my latest unsuccessful attempt to secure an evening of accommodation. I used the "Quick Contact " button on the website and requested a room. Fair enough if the place was booked, my request was admittedly last minute and I was prepared to be disappointed , But I got no reply whatsoever to my enquiry. I followed up with a phone call a day or so later and was told curtly : "I have nothing for you". Maybe I am a little too sensitive but in a high end place like this I expect a little common courtesy ---- like an answer to a web reservation request, even if it is negative, and an apology before being curtly turned down over the phone. ( Better still how about a recommendation on another place to try ---good for someone else's business ?? ) Stuff like that leaves a bad taste in ones mouth. Maybe the Manse has had a little too much success and is adopting what I am coming to recognize is PEC bad attitude. I have run into it recently in other places in the county. Perhaps my 20 year love affair with the county, traditionally a warm, friendly and inviting place, is coming to an end. Success has spoiled them.
