The booking was odd. I looked online and found two nights would be £153 but i hate online booking so telephoned. I was quoted £250 with a comment that I should put the phone down and book online to save a £97. At least I was informed. Odd but honest.
Arrived to meet the group of chums for a two night stay and was immediately impressed by being taken upstairs by the manager who, firstly pointed out the coffee and gratis Talisker and Auchter****** malt whisky residents' tipple stop (bloody marvellous) with two decent coffee machines. This was an amazing treat to have really decent whisky and coffee offered gratis to guests rather than being hammered in the bar at £5 a shot for the same. Superb.
Landlord showed us about a beautifully appointed and well equipped double room (at Travel Lodge price) with great toiletries. accoutrements and a bottle of Damson Gin for the drinkers who had got past the whisky room.It was all delivered with such warmth that clearly the hosts just wanted us to feel as though we were entering their home rather than a pub/hotel.
Cannot fault the room. Clean/superb.
Dinner next with friends. Scallops brilliant. Steak with béarnaise sauce perfect. Attention to detail everything and achieved calmly.
So far, and I am excited by another night here, this is brilliant.
