The only thing that let's the barns hotel down is the fact that it does not have a lounge that you could have a drink after dinner.

Food included in voucher offer was OK but the second night the food was unacceptable. Manager listened but did nothing. No refund offered for food that was inedible. Music in dining room very loud and no one knew how to turn it down (?) and was on loop. No lounge facility as it was being used by a wedding party.
