I will confess that I booked the Lamb off the back of the trip adviser reviews and note that two less than perfect reviews have been made since I looked.
To be honest, I think that we stayed in the room heavily criticized and don't recognise the issues raised.
There were a couple of very minor issues but readers should remember that this is not a purpose built hotel and the rooms have had to be converted so there is a compromise between a spacious room and a spacious en suite.
To be brutal, the en suite (or rather the shower) was a little cramped but it was clean, modern and well equipped. The needle sharp shower jets were corrected by turning the pressure down a little (not obvious unless you played around with it) although after the initial shock it was actually quite invigorating.
The bed was firm but extremely comfortable. The room itself was beautiful with a mix of reclaimed old furniture for the aesthetics and modern for the comfort and functionality. A minor gripe was that the wardrobe had a vaguely unpleasant smell which we put down to its age. Not an issue as we had nothing that needed hanging.
I need to stress that these issues were very very minor and I wouldn't feel that they were worthy of a reduction in the excellent rating I have given.
The overall experience was fantastic, the manager who greeted us was outstanding having found the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness (same for the lady who managed breakfast in the morning.) The whole place felt like it had just been refurbished and was immaculately clean.
Breakfast was first class, cooked to order instead of the buffet style setups that seem to be favoured in larger hotels and with really high quality ingredients.
Overall, I felt that the Lamb exceeded expectation and offered a better package than some, more expensive hotels. I would certainly stay there again and recommend it to anyone else.
