Just had a lovely weekend break at the station. Advice ring the owner david direct to book, as he offered us a room matching the online prices and you get his personal service.
The room we where offered was a four poster room, very large,clean with fresh white linen and fluffy white towels with robes. Bed a bit creeky but what can you expect with age (went well with the two aging bodys in it) not sure if a younger couple with abit more go in them though would have felt the same.
We ate both nights in the hotel, the food was excellent and not to expensive. The chef is very adventures with both the menu and presentation. David works hard to make your stay enjoyable and is very approachable! On our first evening our room was chilly, we made a call to reception and within minutes our heating was on.
Breakfast was very relaxing (nice to hear the local radio station) home from home, we don't eat black pudding so we asked for extra sausage and bacon instead, nothing too much trouble.
David has an open approach to any suggestions you may have as him and his wife are lovingly restoring and refurbishing the hotel slowly, a labour of love, which is apparently ongoing.
Me and my hubby will certainly return, very interested to see the progress.
