I stayed at this hotel recently when working in the area. Though alone, I upgraded to a double room and was given one of the best, if not the best,room in the house. The view was breathtaking and the room, though not very large was very tastefully furnished and the bed was really comfortable.It had a lovely airy bathroom which also had a nice view. The lobby is a lovely place to relax after dinner as it has the feel of a grand drawing room in a country manner,completely with antique furniture and great fires. I loved it.
I had booked B&B plus dinner and the one disappointment was dinner.There was very little choice,just two for each course and very lacking in imagination. Fortunately, by paying a supplement, I was able to get steak,however for that reason I would be reluctant to stay a second night as I consider good dining an important part of a hotel stay. The breakfast was good.
I was also very happy with the staff,everyone was pleasant and attentive.So, overall a good experience but I hope they will improve the evening meal as it's a hotel I'd like to return to.
