We stayed here eleven years ago and always said we would like to go back, so here we were. All the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and special. The reception staff are wonderful, the dining room staff very attentive and helpful & the meals were of a very high standard. Our room was very comfortable (no 107) & kept fabulously clean; the porter was very efficient too on out last morning there as we had a very early start. The welcome from Oliver was second to none - he's quite a character and he & his team have certainly thought of everything. Forgotten your walking pole? Please use one of ours. Need to check the weight of your case? There is a scale in the reception area. Need a different pillow? I've never seen such a choice offered.
Location is everything, and it is certainly central and very convenient. I've not seen any other reference to the church clock in other reviews, but that was my only 'grouse'. We were very fortunate in that the weather was very warm & at night I like to have fresh air in the room. Only problem was that the church clock is only about 200 yards away and chimes all through the night, not only the hours, but two 'dongs' at each half hour too. I kid you not, I counted every one through the first two nights and was very tired. I wonder that the local people don't ask for it to be muffled during the wee, small hours? So, our choice was to either be kept awake by the bells, or be too hot with the windows shut. Maybe a room on the other side of the hotel would be quieter if you think that might bother you? Don't let it put you off though...... the hotel was full of repeat visitors. That always speaks for itself doesn't it?
