We arrived on a day when the hotel was pretty full, hosting two large coach tours. In spite of this we had first class service throughout our stay. Management & reception staff went to considerable trouble to ensure we were happy with our room, which was clean, comfortable, & well appointed. Our deal included afternoon tea, dinner & breakfast. The afternoon tea was as good as anything we've had at Betty's, dinner was surprisingly good - nothing pretentious, a generous starter, a very well cooked beef bourguignon, with loads of veg., & perfect English strawberries with cream. And breakfast was hot & plentiful, with lots of choice on the buffet. We enjoyed the spa facilities, which were pleasant, & we particularly liked the fact that we could swim until 9.45pm, when we had the place to ourselves. This is a very good hotel, largely due to the hard working staff. Of particular note, the manageress, who broke off delivering A LOT of heavy luggage to the rooms to attend to us with efficiency & courtesy. Outstanding.
