Stayed in a room (Emma) overlooking the back of the house. Room was nice if a little small/dark, clean and the bed comfy. A few marks on the wallpaper. Bathroom was OK though some of the sealant around the bath needs replacing and a couple of tiles / bath panel need replacing. Shower was powerful and bath fills satisfyingly quick. Breakfast was great. Couldnt fault it. Dinner menu was relatively unadventurous but the food good quality and perfectly cooked. Had a fillet steak which was perfectly cooked with some of the most delicious chips ive ever had. Cheese board was excellent though id change the quince/ nut thing as was very bland. Bottle of Douro was terrific. Pleasant feel to the hotel without being too stuffy. Staff mostly friendly and helpful throughout. With a few minor attentions to detail this hotel could be terrific. Lovely views and location. Quiet and pleasant surroundings. TV could do with replacing for a more user friendly one. Was led to believe they had Sky in the rooms, but only Freeview.
