We booked the last room at 7.15 pm on a saturday night after walking out of a four star hotel we'd booked to celebrate our wedding anniversary which just was nothing like we'd expected.Their website looked fantastic but it was more like a delapidated nursing home. We were tired and feeling very disappointed as our weekend hadn't gone to plan, and we have never walked out of a hotel before. We arrived at The Wheatley Arms at 8 pm after driving for two hours and making endless phone calls to book a room for the night to salvage our anniversary weekend with some trepidation, but we were welcomed by friendly staff into a beautifully decorated and furnished establishment.All the public areas were tastefully furnished and there were lovely extra touches such as storm candles and lanterns adding to the warm ambience. Our room was spotlessly clean, the bed one of the most comfortable we have slept in and there were many extras , such as bathrobes, proper mugs, two lots of drinking glasses ,magazines and lovely toiletries. We ate in the restaurant and the staff were so jolly and welcoming, they raised our spirits and we began to finally relax and enjoy our long awaited weekend. We slept well and breakfast was served in a beautiful light morning room. They were particularly busy due to a wedding party staying, but the waitress on duty was exceptionally professional and capable, I'm sorry we didn't get her name to mention as she deserves a commendation as she coped admirably with a very full dining room. The waitress who had served us the previous evening came in at ten o'clock and was also just as jolly as she'd been the night before. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return. Thank you to everyone at the Wheatley Arms for saving our weekend.
