Just returned from a Living Social offer this weekend. Excellent value for money. Would return and pay full price (its that good!) We stayed in a room at the front on the second floor in a standard room which has everything you would expect in a 4* hotel. The view from the window was amazing. The hotel itself has history, charm and is an old country house (think Downtown Abbey on a smaller scale) There is a file giving the family tree of the house that I believe was researched by a previous guest which was lovely to read on one of the many settees while you wait for your evening meal. There is a small terraced covered veranda along the front of the hotel which was great for sitting out under and it will be even lovelier once the roses are fully grown. We ate at the hotel and it was truly one of the best meals we have ever had, good sized portions and very tasty and met colieac dietry requirements not the we needed it or noticed.. We have high standards where food is concerned....The staff were all friendly, approachable and helpful. We arrived late and were shown to our room and given a small jug of fresh milk. A kind touch instead of being pointed in the direction of the room. Cherin and Kim are very down to earth owners who obviously care about their business and if you are enjoying your stay. Discretely checking that everyone staying is happy. There is also a garden with plenty of seating. We would love to return during winter and take advantage of those open fires!
