Met by a charming young man who was the General Manager, very pleasant and chatty. Asked what time we would like dinner, said 8 pm, told no 7.30pm! It transpired that we were the only people staying that night, cancellations due to the snow. Our room was large and cold, I assume that the heating had only just been turned on. When we went into the bathroom, which was really en suite, there was no heat in there whatsoever, there was a small broken towel heater and as en suites go it was awful. I understand that the hotel is being refurbished and this obviously had not been but I do think we should have been told, particularly given the weather conditions, that there was no heat in the en suite. The bar, lounge and dining room have been beautifully refurbished. We sat down for a drink in the bar next to the fire (gas real looking fire) and it went out! We went into the dining room for dinner and had a lovely meal but the room (& us) was cold. After our meal we went through to the lounge and sat next to the log fire to try to warm through. It was nearly out and my husband added more wood to it but after a while gave up and went to our room. We had breakfast in the cold dining room, the cold buffet of cereal, fruit, yoghurt had not been put out as there were only two of us and we ordered instead. I wish we had been contacted and given the option of cancelling as there were only the two of us. I also wish we had been pre-warned of the state of the en suite. Would we return - no.
