My mother and I stayed here this week (4/1/13) as we had an appointment in the local area early in the morning.
When we arrived the staff who greeted us were lovely, special mention of the Italian member of staff who was most helpful, and the mill is undisputedly a gorgeous building. The food we had for dinner was good, cooked well and tasty. The wines were also nice.
Our room was a little cramped for a twin, but clean nonetheless and the beds were very comfortable. Being an old building the windows aren't all double glazed and so we had to whack the heating up, this was fine until we were woken by a delivery driver banging around outside about about 5am.
In the morning however, the service was below standard, whomever was on shift wasn't around for us to check out we had to shout all over the building to get attention; no-body turned up for 10 minutes while we sat in the breakfast room, and the peaches/apricots in the fruit selection were fizzy and gone off. We ordered a cup of tea but after another 10 minutes nothing had turned up and we were running late so had to go.
So a bit of a mixed bag - if you get the right staff it's very good, but in the morning of a cold and frosty out-of-season day I think they could do with putting a bit more effort in.
