We knew we were in our sort of place when we were met by the cat (George) on Reception! And we weren't disappointed. We stayed here at the beginning of July on a Travelzoo deal which included a 5 course tasting menu. Check in was very efficient & friendly & due to my husband's respiratory problems, we were allocated a lovely room just at the top of the stairs with a very comfy bed - we had an excellent night's sleep.
We've read some of the negative comments here & have to say that we didn't encounter any of the problems others state. The drink we had before dinner was served promptly as were the 5 courses of dinner. The standard of the food was excellent (although we do have to agree with another report that a whole poussin on a tasting menu seemed slightly over the top, even though it was delicious)
The breakfast choices are to be commended - my husband's black pudding & mashed potato with fried egg on top was an unusual but yummy breakfast whilst my smoked salmon & scrambled egg was done to perfection. The only niggle that we had was that our breakfast was served in the overflow dining room - where the families with young children were being served. We know that this is a family hotel so don't begrudge them this but as a slightly the wrong side of middle aged couple, we do find that we are not at our best listening to small children screaming through the start of the day.
However, this was a very small niggle in what was otherwise a very enjoyable stay.
