I've just returned from a night's stay in this excellent place, and was so happy with every aspect of our stay, that I had to write a review.
I phoned up the day before, and spoke to a lovely lady on the phone who booked us into a standard room (£95). She was great on the phone, and asked us if it was a special occasion (which it was- it was my husband's birthday).
Upon arrival, we were delighted to find out that we'd been upgraded to a Superior room- a beautiful room, very spacious, with the largest bed I'd ever seen! The rooms are beautifully done out- spotlessly clean, with lovely linen, cushions, curtains that gave the room a lovely 'boutique' feel. There was tea/coffee making facilities, and we were brought up fresh milk. The bathroom was lovely, with motion-activated light sensors in the side of the bath- so if one of you needs the bathroom in the middle of the night, you don't need to turn the main lights on.
We had a dinner reservation at 8pm, so headed down early to get a drink at the bar. This is my only small gripe with the place- the actual bar area is tiny, and filled with locals, so there was no room for us to sit and have a drink in the bar- we had to go and sit in the restaurant area, which lacked as much atmosphere at that time. However, there is a lovely outside area, so we could have sat out there.
The food and wine menu is very impressive- I had the warm goats cheese salad to start (£5.95), and lamb for my main course (£15.95). We had a lovely cheese platter for dessert- which they'd put a candle in, as they'd remembered it was my husband's birthday. The breakfast the following morning is lovely as well- they'll basically cater for whatever you want, and the portions are good sizes.
Had an incredible nights sleep- the bed is amazing!
All in all very impressed with this place- the free upgrade was excellent. I think it's slighly expensive though (£115 for a superior room)- but as the service was so excellent, I can't really complain.
