This is an up date on my previous review which I stated was highly disappointed. Firstly let me address the response from the hotel. The miscommunication was the hotels failure to inform us that there would be two venues going on in the hotel. Being a very small boutique hotel and having never stayed there before meant that venues are held in guest areas, therefore guests are restricted from these areas. In most hotels they have a separate function room so as not to impact on what guests have paid for. For the extremely high price paid I would ask about this before you book. Next, the hotel contacted us after I placed my earlier review. Shame it wasn't when I originally complained. Offered a free night, however room only. Arrived and had to queue for over thirty minutes (other people complaining too). Missed our reservations elsewhere. Lovely decor as last time, but again wasn't able to see the much advertised library area, again venue was on, so again no access to this and the bar area downstairs.However upstairs outside terrace was open but didn't venture out there. Put off by the winter weather. My advise if there is a do on, the hotel should offer a discount or free breakfast to reflect the restrictions. Then maybe guests wouldn't feel so let down.
