We last stayed here in 2005 having been regular annual visitors for a number of years prior to that.
This is the sort of comfortable hotel you visit in winter and secretly hope that you'll be snowed in for a week! Our room was as inviting and comfortable as we remember from our previous visits.
The hotel has a very comfortable lounge where we had afternoon tea and cake on our arrival in front of the log fire. Our first evening meal we had in the hotel bar, which incidentally serves up a nice pint of Jail Ale, and the second night was in the restaurant.
Hilights of our meals were the scallops, absolutely delicious, and pigs cheeks which I'd not tried before but thoroughly enjoyed; I had reservations over the duck, it seemed a bit 'chewy'.
The breakfasts were a real treat and both my wife and particularly enjoyed the scrambled egg and smoked salmon which strangely was served different ways on different days.
How does it compare with last time? There is a greater selection on the menu and the meals are perhaps more substantial but the dishes are not as decoratively laid out.
We travelled down from Kent for our weekend and would recommend this for a comfortable self-indulgent weekend, and would welcome the chance to return.
