Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for one night through a secret escapes offer. What a bargain it was.
On arrival you are immediately hit with the outstanding beauty of this place. This is carried on through the hotel with its quaint country house feel. Yes, some of the furnishings need some love but thats what you expect when it is as old as some of it looks.
Our room was perfect, so much bigger than expected and everything that was needed was right there. The bathroom was also much bigger than expected with an amazing shower.
We did have a table booked for dinner, however, we chose not to dine in and cancelled our table. Once again, not a problem, no questions asked just simply asked which name and cancelled it. We did however, go to the cocktail bar for a drink, they were over priced but thats what was expected after reading reviews and from the quality of the hotel. We then ventured across to the leisure area...which consisted of a snooker table, a treadmill, a cross trainer, an exercise bike and a pool.
Although the pool was small it looked very clean and tranquil...made us wish we had taken our swimming stuff!
The bed was the best nights sleep we have ever had...my partner is quite a snorer and (even after having several drinks!) he didn't snore due to the quality of the bed! Breakfast the next day was lovely and the staff couldn't do enough to help.
Overall, this was an amazing night away and cannot wait to stay again.
