We booked Blackwood Hall with expectations of period furnishings and high quality breakfast at a cost of £120 per night for bed and breakfast.
The room smelt damp and it wasn't overly clean. The furniture was cheap flat-pack and there wasn't a hint of period furnishing. The building itself was impressive in the terms of the hall, stairway and dining room.
Very oddly we were expected to order our breakfast the night before and when we asked for something other than the full English it was met with some hostility.
The next morning there wasn't any fresh fruit, limited yoghurt and cereals and overcooked breakfast.
Wouldn't recommend this unless it was around £40 per night and you weren't fussy!
Beware the grounds are being turned into a camp-site!
