The standard of the room was excellent, and as shown on web image.
However, the website home page indicated that:
"The rooms are en-suite and have four-poster or brass bedsteads and country furniture, either with a bath or a shower."
This is not correct, as we found out when we arrived. It was pointed out that if we had gone in to greater depth we would have seen that this room was not en-suite. This should not be the case. It should be stated at the first opportunity. No attempt was made for compensation, as it was our fault that we had not seen it.
Whilst the room was spotless, an open bag (blue) of dirty towels remained at the foot of the inner stairs from late Saturday afternoon, until we left on the Sunday morning.
