I agree with most of what has previously been said about this hotel. Our stay was very pleasant overall but there were some minor factors that prevented me rating this hotel as excellent. THe hotel itself is a wonderful old building in a little village which provides a quaint setting. When we arrived, the hotel was warm and cosy with open fires and friendly staff.
Our room was very small and the bed equally so; the room was very hot even though we turned off the radiator as soon as we entered the room. We found it difficult to sleep as the room was so warm. The shower was not very powerful and the bathroom lacked shelves for toiletries etc. This was not a huge problem as we were only staying one night but had I been staying longer it would have been more of a problem.
There was sherry, fruit, biscuits and chocolates in the room which I thought was a nice touch but,like a previous reviewer has stated, I feel that the nuts should have been covered and they did look to have been there a long time. We found the room on the whole to be clean but there was some cobwebs around the ceiling lights.
Having said all this, we found the food to be delicious and plentiful and the staff were happy to cater for any preferences or varied diets. There were regular guests staying at the hotel who were happy to give rave reviews so we assumed that maybe we had just got a bad room. All in all we enjoyed our one night stay here and would be happy to stay again in a different room. I think the name of the room was 'Greenfinch'.
