We loved this place! It is so different from the chain hotels that could be anywhere in the world. But it would not suit you if you like modern furniture and fittings or if you're a minimalist! Our room was quirky with a big comfy sleigh bed. We had a wee hall and a toilet separate from the bathroom. The room was cosy, but the toilet and (large) bathroom were a bit on the cold side (it was snowing and blowing a gale!). The furniture was old, dark wood and suited the room, but it would not pleease everyone. The armchairs were a little too worn, but we didn't mind. Our only complaint was the lack of really hot water. I showered and washed my hair in warm water, thinking it would become hotter, but it didn't! Also we had only small handtowels in the bathroom (I'm sure they woukd have given us bath towelsh ad we asked, but I was already in the shower when I noticed!). By the way, the complementary toiletries were unusual and lovely. The public areas were very comfortably furnished with big sofas and lots of cushions by the log fire. There were a selection of newspapers, local and national, and other reading material scattered around. Everywhere there are old pictures and mirrors in huge, ornate gilt frames. You really feel like you're in someone's home, not a hotel. I loved it! The dinner was fabulous! Perfect service, beautifully presented food, and absolutely delicious. It ranks number two in my list of the best meas I have ever had (number one was in a Michelin starred restaurant). The wine list was a bit pricey, though (cheapest was £23, and was out of stock!). Breakfast was delicious with a buffet for juice, cereal and baked goods, and cooked to order choices including eggs benedict ( fabulous!). Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but would have preferred the heating turned up a bit, and hotter water.
