Everything. The welcome, room, food, atmosphere and friendliness of staff.

We had booked dinner for 8.30 pm but were delayed by an accident on our journey down. I phoned the hotel to let them know that we'd be late arriving. They said they would inform chef and assured me it wouldn't be a problem. When we arrived we received a very warm welcome and enjoyed our selection from the menu and had a delicious dinner without any sense of being hurried, even though we were late!

Ambiance was very good. The staff were good. The room was fine.

Areas starting to look tired, chipped paint on doors and in the hallways. The cooked breakfast was good as far as it went. If I had been able to eat egg I would have had a larger breakfast. They was no offer of substituting addtional bacon or sausade for having no egg. Ordered black pudding and got tomato.

The fact the rooms are individual. We particularly enjoyed the luxury of a gorgeous bathroom, despite being in the annex. And the hotel offers a lovely warm friendly ambience.

Supply hot water !

Really great room. They have tried to get everything in keeping with the period (bed, furniture, decor, even books in the room) all give that 'authentic' feel. Food very good and lots of places to relax, including lovely courtyard garden. Proper ground coffee and cafetiere in room as well!
