When we arrived, we were greeted by a lovely and helpful young lady who was very informative. The room was stunning as is the setting. The room was beautifully furnished and clean. It was warm and just one of the best I've been in.
There is a lounge with TV and wi-fi and so luxurious.
There were 2 downsides The first was the breakfast. We ordered the cooked breakfast at a £5.00 extra cost and it was served on a small plate and was minimal although cooked nicely and the following day it was smaller. The continental breakfast would have been toast, jams, some fruit and cereal with a croissant later.
The second downside that when we were sitting in the lounge after breakfast, we could overhear staff quite clearly (mainly I believe a cook/chef) complaining about the owners/managers, which I thought was unprofessional and I would suggest putting a door instead of a curtain into the kitchen
But it was a lovely stay and we had a nice evening meal at the Trout
