We were pleasantly surprised at how easy finding the place was, and parking was easy. We got shown to our room quickly and politely. The room was lovely and cosy, with en-suite. A couple of things were disappointing; the hospitality tray was seated in a bottom drawer, which makes it tricky for those with mobility issues and the bathroom had considerable mould that a good scrub could sort out, and a toilet with waste regurgitation so that could really use some attention as it wasn't the most pleasant thing to find.
The bar staff were lovely and friendly and I'm guessing the 4* rating is based largely around the food. The menu is very high end, not suited to those who prefer basic food and heavily meat and fish based.
The full English breakfast was gorgeous, highly recommended.
All in, we would definitely return but it would be nice to see that a higher state of cleanliness had been employed.
