Me and my boyfriend along with a few of our friends booked this stay a couple of months ago from groupon. We arrived at the hotel and though it seemed quite limited on parking from first glance, but there are plenty of other places to park.
Check in: Brilliant, experienced, lovely friendly staff and from the first feel you get when you walk in, its the perfect little country retreit.
The room: It's one of them, you either think this is going to be lovely or really bad, but I can tell you, I was so happy with the room we had, it was imaculate. The en-suite was great and the little ameneties within the room were really thoughtful and we were really impressed.
Location: Amazing, its so nice not to be in the city and just have all the hills and countryside to look at. The local shops were very authentic too and to my suprise, dogs were allowed in the shops and pubs which just shows you how relaxing this wonderful village is. I loved the fact that when we walked to the shops, all of the local jobs were advertised on the door and in shop windows. Here you can feel a great sense of community and I'll be honest, I didnt want to come home.
Staff: I could not fault the staff at all, the manager of the hotel was not sitting in a back office while everybody else was doing the work, he was hands on, everywhere, cutting the hedge one min and then on reception the next, such a great, considerate and knowledgeable guy a true credit to the hotel chain. The staff seemed to all get on really well and enjoyed what they were doing, nothing was too much trouble.
Overall we will be back again from Liverpool, thankyou for a great time!
