We chose this hotel because friends had stayed here previously and had a beautiful room. However, we were staggered to discover that our 'double' room was so small that the bed was pushed hard against the wall so that whoever slept on that side had to climb over the other person to get out in the night to go to the bathroom. In my opinion this is NOT a double room. It is tiny! Only one chair, so only one person could sit down unless the other person sits on the bed.
Having decided to go and sit in the drawing room we were asked to leave as there was a function on. It was suggested that we go the the morning room downstairs but this was full of people attending the function. When we returned after a day out we decided to sit in the morning room as we were travelling with my mother who had a separate room so we didn't just want to go back to our room. Despite having a large fireplace and the fact that it was a very cold weekend (between 0 and 3 degrees) there was no fire as shown on their website. The room was cold.
The food was excellent. My only complaint was that the porridge was lukewarm. However, they happily heated it up for me. We had a meal in the brasserie which was one of the best meals I have ever eaten anywhere. Service is superb. Nathaniel in particular deserves a special mention for his attention to detail. All the staff are friendly and helpful. My only piece of feedback for improvement here would be to clean the teapots properly. I only drink hot water and to receive a teapot with tea stains is not pleasant.
Lovely toiletries in the bathroom.
