We were met with a nice welcome and immediately shown to our room and offered tea at once. A great start. The room was very big and comfortable with fine fittings and a real 'country home' feel. Given the style and quality of the room decor, it was somewhat disappointing that some of what most consider standard features of a 4* room were lacking. Without a telephone to contact reception, no television, no tea making facility, no safe, no trouser press and hardly adequate heating took from the overall experience. In addition the toilet cistern took about a half hour to refill, which was extremely 'inconvenient'. Although we advised the proprietress of this issue, they were unable to have it repaired on the Saturday evening we were there. The shower handle needs to be replaced as it is quite rusted. They're are many positives including the friendliness of the owners and the breakfast was excellent and overall it was a nice experience. However a little extra attention to small upgrading the house would enhance the property. Finally, I think it only fair to say that a discount was applied to our account for the bathroom failures.
