Originally my friend and I were booked in at The String of Horses which I undrstand is owned by the proprietor of the Mansion House, but very fortunately we were informed that we had been transferred to the Mansion House. The String of Horses was the most miserable looking dump of a bar that I have ever seen. I wasn't particularly impressed by the Mansion House either; the public parts were grim and depressing and looked unloved with two empty front rooms that would have made nice sitting and dining rooms. There was no-one to greet us at reception and I had to find the potboy to ask if we might check in. After hanging about for 10 minutes, a girl appeared who knew nothing about our booking. It was chaotic. To be fair, our room was spacious, light and clean and we had a good night's sleep. Breakfast was OK but for £90 our stay did not represent good value; £70 would have been about right. The whole place just screamed 'going downhill fast' and I wouldn't be surprised if within a year or so it closed.I wouldn't stay here again - the Granary in Long Sutton is far superior, better managed and a lot cheaper.
