Keep in mind when you arrive at this hotel, chances are you have been traveling. The staff at the front desk was very cordial and quickly got me checked in. I needed to freshen up before proceeding to the office. Much to my surprise, the layout of my room was totally unacceptable for a female. There simply were NO mirrors in the room. And the only place that had mirrors was the bathroom which offered no outlets for a blow dryer or curling iron. I stopped a housekeeping supervisor and she recognized the issue and brought me two small mirrors which worked for the duration of the trip. There is plenty of wall space to provide a mirror.
Also, an alarm clock system with MP3 hookup is a must in every hotel these days. There simply wasn't one. Luckily I brought my own alarm clock or could have used my cell phone.
The rooms are extremely small.
Positives: The breakfast buffet was very nice and in general, the food was very good. There is a free coffee service available 24x7 providing lattes, americanos, etc. Also on hand were biscuits and fresh fruit. The grounds are simply lovely.
There is no workout facility which is not uncommon, but the pool was very small. If you wish to exercise, bring some running shoes and enjoy the expansive grounds and local town. The free wifi was appreciated and easy to connect to. Our business meeting went well and the staff was very attentive to our needs.
One more thing, at the end of my stay, I was charged 2.5 pounds for using a credit card. This seemed very "cheap" and unnecessary. Credit cards are a common staple of every traveler.
