Very clean hotel and great room. Stayed in the Dawson Suite, brilliant bathroom with bath, shower, bidet, toilet (that did break - but these things happen) and basin. 4 poster bed, wardrobe and small flat screen tv in the bedroom. No turn-down service.
Great staff but didn't enjoy dinner. Very limited amount of largers to choose from (no Fosters/Becks/Budwiser ect.) but good choice of half bottle wines. Dinner was a 3 course meal, starter unfortunatley consisted of 4 pieces of rolled up parma ham, a poached egg and very random peas rolling about on the plate (!) Main course, poached halibut, shallot and cabbage (and more mushy peas) looked and tasted very bland, my partner had lamb which unfortunatley was quite unedible and left 3/4 on the plate. Skipped dessert and went to the pub - Red Lion - down the road.
Breakfast was quite good, normal full English & cereal but no newspapers available at the hotel.
Overall, cute hotel, probably the best in the area but if I was to stay again I'd book the Indian a short walk away for dinner.
