My wife and I just spent a couple of days at the Ravenstone Manor hotel. We have stayed before a few years ago but there are now new owners. The hotel is spacious and has a cosy feel much as you would expect from a country manor. Our room was at the top of the hotel up two flights of stairs and was adequate in size and comfortably warm. A few touches would have improved things - coasters for drinks and more room in the bathroom for hanging towels.
Unfortunately we were both suffering from heavy colds so our appreciation of the food was dimmed by poor appetite however we both felt that the menu would have benefited from some simple choices to go with the rich sauce accompaniments to many of the dishes.
Overall a good but not outstanding hotel.
