Oh my! What a fabulous place!
From the moment my brother and I pulled up into the car park this place smothered you I calm.
I cannot recommend highly enough. The room was stunning, overlooked the 'main' road (secondary glazed) whisper quiet and passing traffic included a donkey!
The library bar, quiet and intimate and with a mind boggling variety of alcohol...could do perhaps with a wider variety of soft drinks though.
The breakfast was to die for! From warms pastries and toast to start, full English breakfast with locally sourced food to the freshly squeezed juices and a waitress who obviously took great pride In her service.
All other staff I came across seemed happy in their service to their customers and I only wish we could have stayed longer!
The grounds around the hotel were perfectly maintained and a delight to gaze at during breakfast and the bonus of seeing a donkey saunter passed from my bedroom was the icing on the cake. In fact as I was taking some video around the back of the hotel and panned around a very inquizative nose muzzled up to me :)! Super friendly and accepting of a rub on the head.
When we returned from our evening meal at Monty's (very good pub grub) I found my bed had been turned down and the ext days weather forecast laying on mt bed along side the TV remote...the fresher water bottle and glass had also been relocated to the bedside table....so thoughtful.
This place will be etched in my memory for a long time and will be a 'must do' when I return to the uk.
Love it, love it, love it!
