we have stayed twice recently as we had appointments nearby, the foxglove is in a pleasant situation and is well furnished, staff are friendly and helpful, then it all goes down hill.
on arrival we were told we had been allocated an upstairs room ,as my wife has mobility problems and we had pre-requested a ground floor room we were told by the manager that some people at central reservations were better than others! what he neglected to tell us was that the heating system was broken , so on a cold and wet December night we had no hot water or heating in our freezing cold room.
eventually driven by the cold down into the restaurant we pointed out the heating problems along with two broken bedside lights and a bathroom door that would not close to be told that we would be given a free drink before dinner!
of dinner itself the menu has pretentions to which the kitchens cannot deliver, nearly everything was very overcooked (don't ask for a rare steak) and when the bill came we were surprised to find our free drinks were on it.
needless to say we will not be returning.
