My boyfriend and I stayed at this Inn in mid-September. When we arrived the reception was closed (we arrived at about 7pm and it was meant to be open until 9 or 10 I think), but the keys and welcome pack were left for us.
There was a plumbing problem in our original room so they upgraded us free of charge to a better room (Room 2 I think).
It was huge - it had a huge four poster bed, dining area, wardrobe and bathroom (with a whirlpool tub). It also had a tv, air con, and coffee making facilities.
The breakfast that is included in the price was delicious, fresh fruit and a pastry, and a choice of coffee, tea or juice. You can eat it in the beautiful courtyard (with a lovely fountain) or have it brought to your room on a silver tray.
The only thing that I would complain about was the fact that on our penultimate day we didn't leave the room until midday and then left the sign on the door knob asking for the room to be cleaned - when we returned later that evening, it hadn't been. It wasn't a massive problem but it meant we hadn't got the breakfast checklist for the morning (you have to tick what you want and when you want it and leave it out each evening, for the next day) so we didn't have breakfast on our last day.
Apart from that, it was a really nice Inn and the location was really good. We would stay there again.
