Stayed here as attending a recent wedding
Positives : Plenty of car parking, looks nice from outside, good open fire downstairs, OK dinner (v good starter, good mains (gravy boat along with dinner & server who would as if anything else was required would help - no staff approached our table to ask if everything was Ok or if we required anything), good dessert)) (good evening buffet), heating works in bedroom and good thermostat, warmest duvet cover ever (which was required), breakfast was OK, building was very cold but heating was on all night so not so bad, rustic charm
Negatives : bedroom was located not in main building but in builing across court yard; half of which is a building site, ?builders walking about at 12 midnight- if not builders, i don't know who they were as they came out of the building site across our landing just before midnight, building is not yet sealed to the elements so come out of bedroom and basically you're into a building site, cobwebs and resident spiders shared our bedroom :(, windows need cleaned, shower not working (not sure if this would be because others in the building would have been showering at the same time and maybe affected water availability/pressure), resident cat in the building made me wonder if it's there to catch mice, duvet smelled of stale sweat and had a wee bit of dirt although the sheets were pristine and i just folded the top of the sheet down over duvet to cover the smell of sweat, lack of light bulbs (in lampshade above our table at dinner and in lightling in bedroom), poor finishes in bathroom...
Overall i prob wouldn't go back to stay at this hotel, it's a lovely building which prob needs mega £££ to bring it up to any standard ...it has lots of potential.....can't be compared to your usual types of accommodation.....not worth £80 for 1 night stay at this point in time
